Have you ever wondered why babies have such plump skin? It’s because of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our body but as we get older it slowly diminishes. What it does is that it holds 1000 times its weight in water and gives your skin a very plump appearance. Babies have a lot of hyaluronic acid in their skin which is why their skin so plump. It replenishes moisture and suppleness in the skin.
You can use hyaluronic acid products twice a day for the best results. Once in the morning and then at night. Make sure that you use it only after cleansing and follow it up with a moisturizer. In the daytime use sunscreen too after the moisturizer. You can also increase hyaluronic acid in the skin by consuming foods rich in hyaluronic acid.
Soy milk contains high amounts of hyaluronic acid. A lot of Korean celebrities drink soy milk daily to increase the level of hyaluronic acid. Soy milk is not the only food that has high levels of hyaluronic acid. Other foods are bone broth, leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, etc.
