The Hyaluronic Acid Hidden Gems You Need to Try this Summer

Hyaluronic Acid... where do I even start? This is the ingredient I believe everyone should have! I honestly never leave it out of my skincare regime, and when I do run out, my skin can tell straigh away!

Hyaluronic acid has become such a popular ingredient in the skincare industry that not only can we find hyaluronic acid serums now, but also moisturisers and masks supercharged with this hero ingredient!

What does Hyaluronic Acid do for our skin?

The main function of Hyaluronic Acid is to retain water (moisture).

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally-occurring substance in our body known for its capacity to attract and bind up to 1000x its weight in water. This allows Hyaluronic Acid to keep our skin moist, dewy and plumped, and our tissues and joints lubricated!

As we age, the skin’s ability to hold moisture decreases, resulting in transepidermal water loss - which means there is moisture evaporating from our skin. This process results in fine lines and the loss of tone and firmness in the skin, making it look dull, flaky and aged.
