Why you should never take Hyaluronic Acid
Many people attempt to reverse the effects of the natural aging process by a variety of supplements, creams and injections. One I don't recommend is Hyaluronic Acid. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our system decreases as does the moisture in our skin. Yet, taking a synthetic supplement internally to try to combat this is wrong, as there is a higher risk of cancer associated with this synthetic supplement.
As a naturopathic doctor, I always recommend going the most natural route possible. I formulated my Vitatree Hair Skin and Nails with natural ingredients such as Silicon from Horsetail Herb and MSM, a natural sulfur containing molecule that helps maintain the bonds in keratin, which is the building block for healthy hair, skin and nails. This will help anchor the moisture you need to give your skin that dewy look, without any of the side effects of a synthetic supplement.
People also forget the basics such as a healthy, clean diet and plenty of sleep, both factors which contribute to healthy skin. Not to forget, plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, plenty of water, avoiding smoking and excess drinking will help your skin stay young. Too much alcohol and caffeine can be dehydrating. It's quite simple, really.
Avoid anything synthetic that you put into your system, go for eating clean and healthy foods, get plenty of rest, your skin will reap the positive benefits.
