Hyaluronic Acid, the trending word on every beauty editor's lips. Power in a bottle, this small but mighty ingredient can genuinely transform your skin. The best part is that no matter what skin type you have (dry, combination, oily), this wonder ingredient can bring bounce, radiance and elasticity to everyone's face (now that’s worth smiling about).
Think of Hyaluronic Acid like a drink of water for the skin, a magnificent moisture magnet that attracts water to your cells and retains it. When integrated into a daily routine, it can both plump and hydrate.
From understanding what it is, its benefits, to how we integrate it into our products, keep reading for the endless possibilities. We swear you’ll be a Hyaluronic Acid super fan after!
Four things you may not know about Hyaluronic Acid.
- It can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water.
- Being a humectant compound it can attach other moisture (so think of it as a magnet for hydration making other hydration products work harder).
- Hyaluronic Acid is a chemical molecule that the body produces less over time.
- Because it’s not foreign to our bodies, our skin knows it and loves it. So applied topically, helps improve skin moisture and elasticity quite efficiently.
Benefits of Using Hyaluronic Acid in Skincare.
As our bodies age, the Hyaluronic Acid that is naturally produced occurs less and less so there is a need to apply it topically. Its function on the skin is to retain moisture levels.
When we talk about dehydration vs dryness, dehydrated skin can look crepey, have fine lines and feel tight. In comparison dry skin is flaky, often irritated and due to a lack of oil production. Hyaluronic Acid is ideal for counteracting dehydration, which in turn helps pump out fine lines, wrinkles and dull lacklustre bounce when our skin is parched. The result - bouncy skin that looks and feels healthy.
