Why we Love Hyaluronic Acid

Why we Love Hyaluronic Acid

Often considered the holy grail of humectants, hyaluronic acid is the key to plump, hydrated and youthful-looking skinRead on to discover the benefits of hyaluronic acid and how to incorporate this wonder ingredient into your skincare routine. 

What ihyaluronic acid? 

Hyaluronic acid is a chemical compound that occurs naturally in the body and skin. It helps joints, muscles, and nerves to function properly, while replenishing moisture levels in the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  

What does hyaluronic acid do?  

With age, skin naturally produces less hyaluronic acid and loses its ability to retain water, potentially causing dryness, fine lines and wrinklesTopically applying the ingredient keeps skin looking plump and feeling youthful.  

The benefits of hyaluronic acid 

The benefits of hyaluronic acid include: 

Retaining moisture 

Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, helping to prevent moisture loss and keep skin hydrated. 

Hydrating the skin 

When applied topicallyhyaluronic acid absorbs moisture from its surroundings and works to drive that moisture into skin cells to lock in hydration. 

Supporting the skin barrier 

Environmental factors including indoor heating and pollution can damage the skin barrier, causing skin to look dry and rough.  

Hyaluronic acid works to fill the gapin the damaged moisture barrier to support its structure, leaving skin looking smooth, soft, and plump.  

How to use hyaluronic acid 

Found in concentrates, serums, moisturizers, and night creams, hyaluronic acid can be applied twice a day as part of a morning and nighttime skincare routine.  

It’s lightweight and fast-absorbing, making it suitable for all skin types. However, those with sensitive skin should do a patch test before use.
