I have bought a moisturizer for my 14-year-old daughter. She has dry skin. The cream says it contains hyaluronic acid. I heard it is used for anti-aging. Will this acid have a negative effect on her skin?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Hyaluronic acid is good for skin as it has moisturizing properties.
The reason it is used as anti-aging is that of its moisturizing property.
As we age, we lose moisture from the skin along with the loss of collagen from dermal part of the skin.
I would suggest you use this moisturizer which has both ceramide and hyaluronic acid. This is the best combination for the skin.
