5 Surprising Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid & Where to Buy It in Egypt
First of all, what is hyaluronic acid?
While it might sound scary, because of the word, ‘acid’ in it, but hyaluronic acid has officially become a staple in every woman’s skincare routine. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar found naturally in our skin that holds water, and keeps it hydrated and plump. Like many other things, as we age our body produces less and less hyaluronic acid, which is why sometimes we need to give our skin a little help from time to time.
If you haven’t already added hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine, then take it from us, you are truly missing out. Yes sure, hyaluronic acid was trending for a while, but unlike most trends, hyaluronic acid is here to stay! Cosmetics brands have even started adding it to their hair care products to witness its magical effect. If by any chance you’re a bit skeptical, and not sure whether or not to start adding hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine, we’re here to share with you 5 surprising benefits of hyaluronic acid and where to find it in Egypt.
1. Hyaluronic acid moisturizes your skin in the best way possible.
We know there are so many moisturizers out there that promise the impossible, but hyaluronic acid is one of the few products that deliver that. If you are looking for that supple, baby smooth skin then a product containing hyaluronic acid is the way to go. It helps replenish the skin and retains moisture in your cells leading to hydrated and a plump skin.
2. Hyaluronic acid is fast absorbing.
You see, with some products you need to keep using them consistently to start seeing an effect after some time. Well, hyaluronic acid is the extra fast ticket we’ve been all looking for, because it absorbs so fast, which leads to faster results. Because, hyaluronic acid is fast absorbing, you don’t need to use a lot of the product, whatever you put onto your skin will get absorbed and start working its magic.
3. Hyaluronic acid can make your hair less frizzy!
Yes, you read that correctly. As we mentioned above, this magic ingredient is being added to hair products, where it can help soothe dry scalps, reduce frizz and seal split ends.
4. Hyaluronic acid can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
We know we know, you probably read that sentence A LOT. But, if there is one last time to read it and believe it, it’s now. Since hyaluronic acid has the ability to retain moisture and can be absorbed super fast, it guarantees that it will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your skin.
5. Hyaluronic acid can be used on all skin types.
