It is everywhere in almost every kind of skincare product. But do you know what it can actually do for you?

What You Need To Know About Hyaluronic Acid | RenewAlliance dba TautUSA  | Taut Collagen Supplement Drink

Sagging skin, wrinkles, and joint pain are issues that commonly plague us as we age. These problems might seem unrelated, but they can all be treated with a substance that’s naturally present in our bodies called hyaluronic acid. 

Hyaluronic acid may not be the latest, most exotic ingredient out there, but it’s a tried and true substance that’s proven to be great for the skin. It is now widely available in skin creams, serums, and beauty supplements.

Hyaluronic acid has been referred to as a fountain of youth. It is a polysaccharide (carbohydrate) found in connective tissues that helps to retain moisture and lubricates your joints. It is also found in the fluid inside your eyes, acting as a shock absorber and transporting nutrients into the eyes.

Not Only Do You Lose Collagen As You Age, You Also Lose Hyaluronic Acid
Youthful skin is pliable and resistant due to its high water content, and the key molecule that contributes to the skin’s moisture is hyaluronic acid. There is a large amount of hyaluronic acid between the skin cells, where it keeps your skin moist, firm, and supple. Babies have plump, dewy skin because they are born with a high level of hyaluronic acid. 

Unfortunately, as you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin diminishes. While you’ll never be able to make your skin look as plump and smooth as it did when you were a baby, you can restore your skin’s hyaluronic acid levels to give it a fresh and youthful appearance. Skin that has high hyaluronic acid content looks healthy, soft, and smooth. 
It Can Be Washed Off
Dermatologists have long touted the benefits of hyaluronic acid. It can even carry up to 1,000 times its weight in water. The disadvantage of hyaluronic acid is that its molecules are too large to penetrate the surface of the skin and therefore can be washed off. However, there are new anti-aging formulations that are more effective and achieve longer lasting results. The hyaluronic acid molecules in these products are at lower weights, making them capable of penetrating lower layers of the skin, such as your dermis, where collagen and hyaluronic acid resides.

It Can Minimize Your Wrinkles 

The oral intake of hyaluronic acid helps to maintain skin hydration and smooth out wrinkles without the invasiveness of hyaluronic acid injections. A study in the Scientific World Journal has shown that when hyaluronic acid is taken orally, it contributes to the increased synthesis of hyaluronic acid and moisturizes the skin. Another study carried out at Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich, Germany showed that the topical application of hyaluronic acid led to a significant improvement in skin hydration and elasticity. Furthermore, the application of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid was associated with a notable reduction in wrinkle depth.
Lube Up Your Joints With It and Get Joint Pain Relief
Not only does taking hyaluronic acid supplements make your skin look supple and smooth, it also relieves joint pain. Hyaluronic acid is a key component of synovial fluid in your joints, which provides lubrication and enables the bones in your joints to glide against one another. The results of a study from Japan show that oral hyaluronic acid supplementation may improve the symptoms of knee osteoarthritis, for example.

We all live for the summer months! Nothing is better than going to the lake, beach, or hanging out at the pool with your family and friends on a long, hot summer day. While this is therapeutic to the mind and spirit, it may not always be so great for your skin. And we all know that we’re supposed to wear sunscreen on the regular to help protect our skin from the sun’s damaging rays, but maintaining coverage and reapplying sunscreen is sometimes a task that escapes us while we are having fun. Unconsciously, we may end up with a sunburn, which is a clear indicator of immediate skin damage. This damage accumulates over time, and accelerates the skin aging in all of us, resulting in dark/sun spots (hyperpigmentation), and contributes to other subcutaneous skin structure breakdown that leads to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Which is a major bummer for our beauty goals.

Aging is kind of a bummer, am I right? 

Even though our mothers gave us the heads-up that things are going to change, we then wake up one morning (approx. age 35 for me) and realize that 1) Things HAVE changed, along with 2) Mom was right…AGAIN . And unfortunately, our skin is usually where we see the effects of aging in our bodies first. From dryness, to volume loss and fine lines, to perhaps even the oh-so-unfair adult onset acne, time has a way of wreaking havoc on our once pristine skin. 

But the great news is, we can reduce these effects by nourishing our skin from the inside, out. And as a registered dietitian, I’m here to provide a few proven nutrition tips and real-life tricks, to nourish your skin to help keep it glowing and healthy for years to come.

Protecting your skin from the sun is important, no matter what time of year it is, but it’s especially vital in the summertime. While you might want to bare your skin in the summer to achieve a beautiful, sun-kissed complexion, UVA and UVB radiation from the sun can wreak havoc on your skin and cause premature aging if you aren’t careful.

UVA rays, which account for 90 to 95 percent of the UV radiation that reaches the earth, penetrate deep layers of the skin and cause tanning. UVB radiation accounts for only 5 to 10 percent of solar radiation, but it damages the epidermis, or surface layer of the skin, causing sunburn.

  UVA rays cause the collagen in your skin to break down at a higher rate than normal aging . They do this by penetrating the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, and lead to the abnormal buildup of elastin. This elastin accumulates and results in the production of enzymes that break down collagen.

The more sun exposure you get, the worse the damage becomes. UV radiation also creates free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that increase the number of enzymes that break down collagen. An excessive amount of free radicals in your body can also weaken your vascular system, cause poor circulation, and lead to deteriorated eye health.
