Choosing Skin Care Products: Know Your Ingredients

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is included in skin care products to reduce the signs of aging. Your body produces hyaluronic acid naturally, keeping tissues cushioned and lubricated. It's found in skin, joint fluid, and connective tissues. Age, smoking, and an unhealthy diet cause you to make less of it over time.

Products containing hyaluronic acid may help smooth out skin. It's especially effective when combined with vitamin C products.
