Anti-aging Supplement Some Call an 'Instant Face Lift'

Hyaluronic acid has been called "the fountain of youth", and for good reason.

 Ten years ago, at 37-years-old, I started using a supplement called Hyaluronic Acid for my arthritis. It works so well I forget my achy joints at times. But, another funny thing happened -- customers started asking if I had had a face lift, and a couple even checked for surgical scars!  I found out HA is also great for aging skin. Now (at 47!) I bathe in it internally and externally.

Hyaluronic Acid is nothing to be afraid of. It's a natural substance found in the body that we lose as we age, or gets destroyed by sun exposure, causing dry skin and wrinkles. It is great for skin care because of its ability to retain water, as much as 500 - 1000 times its own weight. It is this property of HA that makes skin moist, soft, and elastic, thereby maintaining a more youthful appearance.

Hyaluronic Acid is now available in many skin care products and is touted for anti-aging skin care. You know the filler Restylane that women of a certain age pump into their faces? That's HA! I use a moisturizer with HA and I still use HA everyday for my arthritis, 140 mg a day as a capsule.  And  I will just have to put up with the side effect of  younger looking skin.

Thanks Sheryl...that's high praise coming from a Skin expert such as yourself. I also take the supplements you listed. It's amazing what you can do for your skin internally. But, I always say...#1 key to great skin is wearing SUN SCREEN everyday.
