Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that decreases as we age. It holds water and keeps our skin looking young and plump. HA will rehydrate skin for a plumper appearance and will minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydration isn't the only benefit of hyaluronic acid. Pickle also includes botanical extracts that also have antioxidant properties to protect your skin from the environment, sun exposure and harsh chemicals.
Hyaluronic acid is also a humectant, which means it draws water from your surroundings and holds on to it. Honey is another well-known humectant... but HA is a quite a bit less sticky and easier to apply on a daily basis.
Hyaluronic acid also protects our lipid barrier and increases our skin's resilience to the elements... so we get less wrinkly, less dull, less raisin-like. It also smoothes out the tone of our skin, tightening the droopy bits and lessening the appearance of wrinkles. PLUS... it helps to stimulate cell health and regeneration (always a positive).
Finally, it helps with pigmentation (discoloration) and over-production of oil.
