The loss of hydration negatively effects functions within the skin. There are two main aims to focus on when achieving hydrating in the skin:
- Hyaluronic acid (existing in dermis and epidermis) assists the first aim by binding and retaining water molecules.
- A healthy stratum corneum (outer layer of the skin), is necessary for skin to retain water. Reinforcing lipids with fatty acids or oils decreases water loss. Lipids decrease with age, which affects the ability for hyaluronic acid to spread through the skin.
