Why is Hyaluronic Acid So Important?

The elasticity and suppleness of young skin are largely due to the huge amounts of hyaluronic acid. Over time, this essential component decreases, which results in visible aging signs. This is because hyaluronic acid is needed for retaining or binding water. When your skin is unable to retain water, it not only becomes thinner and drier but also incapable of natural rejuvenation thus causing frown lines, under the eye hollows.
