Ingredient Highlight: Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) has been getting a lot of attention lately, and for a good reason, this stuff is fantastic for your skin! Today we will go over some of the incredible benefits HA has for your skin, as well as an H&Z product that features this wonder ingredient.

What benefits does HA provide your skin?

Hyaluronic acid has a plethora of excellent benefits but is best known for its ability to add moisture into your skin. This influx of nourishment and hydration is what allows HA to keep your skin looking plump and glowing. Along with keeping your skin plump, studies have linked HA to smoother, tighter, and firmer skin. Improved skin elasticity can help to contribute to a reduction in visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. These particular attributes are often why it is added into anti-aging products for a youth-promoting complexion.

HA has also had some evidence to suggest that it can help reduce the time it takes for blemishes to heal as well as fight any residual scarring left on the skin. This is partly due to HA's ability to stimulate cell regeneration and turnover, which, when appropriately nourished, allows for healthier new skin cells to provide a glowing complexion.

The benefits of HA are going to be most effective when products containing HA are used in conjunction with other nourishing skincare, SPF application, and a vibrant, balanced diet.

How does H&Z use HA?

H&Z has recently released its first product featuring HA - our HempHydrate Refreshing Gel Toner. This toner has a powerful antioxidant complex complemented by the Aloe Vera gel and Kiwi Fruit to refresh and rejuvenate skin. Alongside this, HA and organically grown Hempheart Oil are working to improve complexion. Just in time for summer, this toner will act as a glass of water for the skin and won't strip your skin as many conventional toners do.
