dermal-repair1The latest “buzz word” on the ingredient list of anti- aging products is hyaluronic acid. It is the new ” collagen” Hyaluronic acid is the ingredient in the injectable fillers Restylane and Juvederm. It naturally occurs in the bodyso it does not cause allergic reactions when injected under the skin. When applied on the skin it does not “plump it up” but it does add moisture to the skin and help the skin retain water. In that respect it is very effective. I like the Skin Medica ” Dermal Repair Night Cream” which includes hyaluronic acid and Vitamins E and C. Skin Medica also adds hyaluronic acid to their Environmental Protection Sunscreen #30 which makes it an effective moisturizer.  For more on hyaluronic acid see a recent LA Times article: Skin care’s new favorite ingredient: hyaluronic acid
