What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule produced naturally in the human body. The main function of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to keep it moist, to provide volume and to assist in the formation of new tissue. Unfortunately, as we get older, our hyaluronic acid production decreases.
