Hyaluronic Acid! The Ingredient We All Need This Summer

We have all heard of Hyaluronic Acid, but what is this ingredient that seems to be present in so many skincare products? And what is it doing for our skin?

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Although it has an intimidating name, Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in our body known for its capacity to attract and hold up to 1000x its weight in water. It works overtime by replenishing skin to enhance a healthy, supple look and feel.

As we age, the skin’s ability to hold moisture lessens, which in turn results in fine lines, loss of tone and firmness, making the skin look dull and flaky.


Plus, during the hot summer months, dehydration is common occurrence on everyone's skin, that can be quenched back into health with the use of this skin-changing ingredient.


Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is well known for its skin benefits, especially to hydrate dry skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and speeding up wound healing. It is like giving the skin a massive drink of water!

Hyaluronic acid benefits sensitive skin by adding hydration. It helps protect the lipid barrier (responsible for protecting the skin from all the outside aggressors that can damage its surface and cause skin sensitivity).

The same can be said of Oily skin types - they often lack moisture due to the harsh ingredients often used to control oil, so the benefits of applying Hyaluronic Acid are extensive for oily and congested skin types as well. It is essential for skin function and helps to stabilise oily skin types.

How to use Hyaluronic Acid?

Start by adding Hyaluronic acid into your regime once per day. Once you gauge how your skin takes to it, you can increase to using it morning and night.
