What can hyaluronic acid do for your skin?

ANSWER

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in people and animals and is found in young skin, other tissues, and joint fluid. Skin care products with hyaluronic acid are most frequently used to treat wrinkled skin although they don't replace anything the body has naturally lost. These are very effective moisturizers.
