Amino Acids are constantly involved in the process of creating connective, structural proteins that allow the skin to toughen up whilst maintaining its smooth texture. Amino Acids also play a part in helping the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles which are common signs of skin aging.
Here are some beneficial properties of Amino Acids for your skin:
1. Increased Hydration and Water Retention: Amino Acids push moisture through and into the skin, which keeps the outer layer of your skin feeling nourished and hydrated. This process is essential, as prolonged dryness can often lead to skin concerns like acne and premature wrinkles. They can enhance water absorption making them pairable with ingredients used to maintain skin hydration, like Hyaluronic Acid.
2. Antioxidant Properties: Amino Acids are effective antioxidants, which means that they can help to reduce inflammation, improve skin complexion and even protect your skin from damaging free radicals.
