Ingredient Focus: Hyaluronic Acid
Dehydrated, tired & dull skin - look no further than hyaluronic acid!
As the ultimate hydration station, hyaluronic acid is a key hydrator in all of our routines. Hyaluronic acid is present naturally in our body and plays a part in helping to heal and repair our skin while being the key molecule found in the skin’s moisture. As we get older, the hyaluronic acid stores within our bodies naturally begin to reduce – the two key causes? Ageing & lifestyle.
Hyaluronic acid behaves in a very specific way and has to be used in a specific way in order to reap all of its skin loving benefits. When applying hyaluronic acid topically on our skin it needs something wet placed on top in order for it to cling on. If we apply hyaluronic acid serums on its own or without any moisturiser on top, it will begin to pull moisture from within your skin to be able to penetrate the skin. This can lead to the skin becoming excessively dehydrated and dry, if we layer hyaluronic acid underneath a moisturiser then it will cling onto the moisture within your moisturiser to soak into the skin, making sure you are getting all of the benefits of this hydration hero.
Hyaluronic acid has a fantastic cell “swelling” effect which makes it a youth-boosting superstar, making the skin appear plump and firm as well as diminishing the appearance of wrinkles. It’s an ingredient that will be ideal for dry and dehydrated skin but not suffocating on congested or combination complexions. The list of benefits goes on & on so we won’t bore you…
Present in serums, moisturizers, sheet masks, toners, and face mists – hyaluronic acid,aka the powerhouse ingredient, is found in so many of your favourite formulas.
