Hyaluronic Acid! The ingredient we all need

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 and also aged.


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).

Oily skin types especially lack moisture because of the harsh ingredients often used to control oil; this is where Hyaluronic Acid is beneficial in the treatment of oily/congested skin types. It provides the hydration for the skin without being greasy or clogging the skin. It is essential for skin function and helps to stabilise oily skin types.

Hyaluronic acid is also very well known in the world of cosmetic injectables. It is the main ingredient in all the products on the market that add volume - plump lips, cheeks, and face contouring have become very popular thanks to Hyaluronic Acid.


How to use Hyaluronic Acid?

Start by adding your 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.
