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.

It was difficult to spot the difference because you look at your face every morning. You stumble upon an old picture from college or even just five years ago. “My skin used to be so smooth and firm!” “Where did that saggy, extra skin come from underneath my chin?”

Skin issues can be emotionally difficult to deal with. We feel self-conscious when there is a giant, red pimple on our nose or when there are more dark spots and less firmness in our skin. It is the first thing people see and generally, we cannot hide it.

As a teenager, I struggled with acne and later in my twenties, I remember waking up one morning with dry, scaly patches on the bridge of my nose and on my neck. Seemingly overnight, I found myself dealing with moderately severe eczema.

People would ask, “What’s wrong with your neck? Did you get a really bad sunburn.” As much as I tried to convince myself that I was not self-conscious about my skin, these innocent comments from friends and family started to wear down on me.

I would hesitate to wear t-shirts because they exposed my neck, and I did not want to deal with the “innocent” comments or have to explain that I was not contagious. I tried different eczema creams and lotions but this was more than just dry skin.

As much as I disliked going to the doctor, my mom, who is a pharmacist, convinced me to make an appointment with my family physician. My doctor examined my skin and came back after 5 minutes with two tubes of medication—two different forms of topical steroid creams. He said, “Just apply these until the patches go away.”

“How long will I have to use these?”

“Probably off and on for the rest of your life.”

That just did not make any sense to me. This was one of those turning points in my life that started me down the path of looking for answers about what these symptoms mean and how to get to the root cause of the issue rather than just covering up the issue with medications.

Little did I realize, or did my family physician, that my form of eczema (also commonly called atopic dermatitis) was not primarily a skin disease, but rather a sign that my body’s internal environment was out of balance.

My mom was always the one encouraging myself and her customers at the pharmacy to use as few medications as possible. She promoted healthy lifestyle and nutrition because she understood that medications were not the answer to all health problems. You might see why I was inspired to look to a different approach to medicine. My holistic medical education at Bastyr University, an accredited naturopathic medical school, taught me to look at symptoms in the context of whole-body health.

Even if you do not have a skin condition, taking care of your internal environment will keep your skin healthy, radiant, and smooth. 

Let me explain.

Produced by fibroblasts, elastin is an important protein that enables our skin to return to its original shape after it stretches or contracts. Elastin fibers are like little rubber bands in the connective tissue throughout our bodies. Eventually, the fibers lose their ability to snap back.

Through the years, there are many things that can take a toll on your skin, including the sun, bad habits, and pollution. Exposure to these elements can damage the elastin fibers in your skin, which causes the skin to sag and stretch.

Loose skin and tissue under the upper arm area due to damaged elastin is a common issue. Flabby upper arm skin may make you feel reluctant to wear sleeveless shirts and swimsuits. Factors that contribute to sagging underarm skin include aging, smoking, genetics, and weight loss.

When your weight fluctuates, it can break or weaken the elastin fibers in the dermis, which results in the loss of tensile strength. Therefore, the skin is unable to bounce back and regain its original shape, similarly to when a rubber brand is stretched beyond its limit. If you lose weight and simultaneously lose muscle mass, this leads to a loss of tone that causes the skin in the underarm area to appear flaccid. 

Here are some tips for avoiding and treating sagging underarm skin.
