Apakah Hyaluronic Acid?

Hello!

Tajuk diatas berbunyi soalan. Atau soalan berbunyi seperti tajuk diatas. Okay, dua-dua adalah sama. Apakah itu Hyaluronic acid? Mahu sebut pun sudah susah, bukan? Maybe ada yang tahu, maybe tiada yang tahu. Itulah dia misteriiiii…. Aihh dah macam al-chemist pulak. Yang girls maybe biasa dengar, yang guys mungkin jarang. Yang gays? Hehe kidding.

Yang pastinya ianya bukanlah sejenis makanan, tetapi merupakan sejenis acid yang digunakan untuk kecantikan. Okay saya copy paste some of the facts that i’ve found on other websites ya!

“Hyaluronic acid is present in every tissue of the body, and it performs many important functions. It helps deliver nutrients to and carry toxins from cells that do not have a blood supply, such as those found in cartilage; without adequate amounts of HA, the joints will become brittle and deteriorate. Not only does it keep joints lubricated, but hyaluronic acid also encourages water retention in other bodily tissues. It is found in large concentrations in the extracellular matrix (ECM), which is the fluid-filled space between cells. HA locks moisture into the ECM, keeping collagen and elastin moist and promoting a youthful appearance.

Hyaluronic acid is gaining popularity in the cosmetic and medical industries. Cosmetic products containing hyaluronic acid claim to hydrate the skin, allowing it to appear smoother and more radiant. Clinical studies have shown that it also helps wounds heal more quickly, and can reduce the appearance of both old and new scars. Injectible hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, are being to lessen the appearance of lines, sagging and depressions in the skin caused by acne scars or injury.” (source : http://www.vitaminstuff.com/supplements-hyaluronic-acid.html)

“Hyaluronic acid which is also called hyaluronan or hyaluronate is a gel like substance found in the skin as well as in the fluid around the eyes, connective tissues, cartilage, and in between joints.

Aging, over exposure to the sun, and other environmental factors decrease the skin's ability to product hyaluronic acid naturally and can actually increase the rate of the skin's natural HA content to degrade over time.

As an active ingredient in topical anti-aging treatments, hyaluronic acid skin care products have proven to be effective in plumping and firming sagging skin, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as treating acne scars and healing damaged skin.

Hyaluronic acid has been rapidly gaining in popularity as an active ingredient in topical skin care products because it produces outstanding results!” (source : http://www.skincareresourcecenter.com/hyaluronic-acid-skin-care.html)

Untuk details, you guys (bukan bermaksud lelaki) boleh google. Apa yang dapat disimpulkan, ianya baik untuk anti-aging, hydrating, firming, smoothing dan lain-lain. Ni adalah contoh dua produk yang saya tahu mengandungi Hyaluronic Acid, iaitu ZA Skin beauty foundation, dan Loreal Derma Genesis seperti gambar di bawah. Oh, saya sekarang memang menggunakan foundation ZA ini!
