How Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizes Your Skin with Mountain Ice Eczema Cream
Don't let the name fool you: hyaluronic acid is extremely beneficial to your skin. When you see the world "hyaluronic," think hydration! This powerful moisturizer is an effective addition to many skincare products and a key ingredient in Mountain Ice Eczema Cream.
Hyaluronic acid is actually a polysaccharide, an abundant carbohydrate naturally present in the body and an important part of skin health. It's a primary component of the extracellular matrix, which provides structural support and binding for cells, strengthening them. This has major benefits for skin health: repairing damage, protecting against irritants, moisturizing, and reducing signs of aging are all examples of what hyaluronic acid can do for skin. But how does this help you fight ezcema? Read on to learn how it can hydrate, soothe, and restore your skin!
1. Skin Repair
Damaged, dehydrated tissue is susceptible to inflammation, the body's response mechanism in treating that damage. Inflammation is a valuable process, but needs to be regulated by the body or will cause more harm than help. Hyaluronic acid is necessary for the growth of new skin cells following damage, and is found in high concentrations in granulation tissue, the connective tissue that grows to fill in wounds. It doesn't just bind moisture to skin cells, but binds skin cells together.
2. Moisture Retention
Hyaluronic acid, a naturally present joint lubricant, is known for retaining moisture in connective tissue, but it can do the same for skin! It helps to bind water to skin cells, and can hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water.
3. Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Concentrations of hyaluronic acid increase in damaged tissue, where it's crucial to tissue regeneration and regulates inflammation levels. Increased hyaluronic acid promotes inflammatory response to injuries and wounds, but it then moderates this response by binding with proteins that inhibit inflammation. This contradictory response promotes healing but then manages the inflammation and new tissue growth that's crucial to the healing process but in excess can cause pain or damage. Eczema, being an inflammatory disease, often results in flare-ups of irritated, dry skin. Hyaluronic acid can help mediate these flare-ups, reducing inflammation before it starts!
