Hyaluronic acid is one of the most popular ingredients in our sheet masks. In today’s blog from Seoul Mamas, we answer two questions: What is hyaluronic acid? How does hyaluronic acid protect your skin?

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is clear and gooey in its pure form. Your body produces hyaluronic acid naturally in bone marrow. That’s because your body uses hyaluronic acid to repair cartilage and connective tissue.
However, hyaluronic acid also serves an important function in your skin, where your body stores about 50% of the substance it produces. The purpose of hyaluronic acid is to help your body retain moisture, which, in turn, keeps your tissues lubricated and moist. Seoul Mamas sheet masks with hyaluronic acid help you enjoy healthy, moisturized skin every day.

How Does Hyaluronic Acid Protect Your Skin?

Hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its weight in water. When it reaches the skin, this substance draws water to the surface. You’ll notice this when you apply certain skincare products to your body. Hyaluronic acid makes your skin look dewy and younger, as if it has a sheen of water, because it improves skin elasticity. You’ll have more water in your skin, and it makes your skin cells more vibrant due to the extra water in them.
Some dermatologists say that hyaluronic acid is so effective, you only need to use it once per day in your skincare routine. Consider a private label sheet mask from Seoul Mamas to get your daily dose of hyaluronic acid!

How Does Hyaluronic Acid Help Your Body?

Although Seoul Mamas is more concerned with the skin, hyaluronic acid in your body has other benefits.
Prevents wrinkles. Your body produces less hyaluronic acid as you age. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation (sunlight), tobacco smoke, and pollution can also reduce your body’s ability to make hyaluronic acid. As little as 120 to 240 milligrams a day can help your skin immensely to repair damage due to pollutants and age.
Healing wounds. Your body increases concentrations of hyaluronic acid in your skin when you get a wound. This substance signals the body to build more blood vessels in the damaged area to speed healing. Think about hyaluronic acid products when it comes to healing a wound or inflammation on your skin.
Alleviates dry eye, joint pain, and bone loss. Because hyaluronic acid increases moisture in your body, its benefits extend to helping your eyes, bones, and joints work more effectively. These three systems rely on plentiful amounts of water to work properly, and the right amounts of hyaluronic acid in your body can help.
