Hyaluronic Acid is a super ingredient in skincare. It is a powerful component that both binds moisture to the skin and is suitable for all skin types and ages. Read further to find out more about the benefits it has on the skin.

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in skin. Its production, nevertheless, decreases with age. Despite its name, it is not actually an acid that exfoliates skin. It is, in fact, a skin-hydrating sugar molecule. It has numerous roles in the body and it is important, for example, for the functioning of the eyes and joints. This potent ingredient is used in cosmetics to add a hydrating element to makeup, serums, creams as well as primers and foundations.

Maintaining a balanced moisture level is essential if you want to have healthy and beautiful skin. ​When it is hydrated, it has a better ability to protect itself from external irritation.

5 reasons to use Hyaluronic Acid – find out how it benefits your skin

  1. It Hydrates Skin. The efficacy of hyaluronic acid is based on its ability to bind multiple times its weight in water. Different-sized hyaluronic acid molecules are used in cosmetics for different purposes. The larger molecules stay on the surface of the skin whereas the smaller ones reach the deeper layers of the epidermis to provide hydration. Often different-sized hyaluronic acid molecules are utilised in cosmetics products to achieve the best possible effects.
  2. It makes skin more plump. Hyaluronic acid has the ability
    to retain water. The smaller molecules are able to absorb deeper to the skin resulting in a skin that appears fuller and bouncy. This creates a plumping effect to the skin.
  3. It makes skin smoother. When the skin is deeply hydrated and plump, its surface looks smoother, too. Also the larger hyaluronic acid molecules make the skin look smoother by filling the lines on the surface of the skin. Hyaluronic acid’s smoothing effect makes it a highly regarded ingredient also in anti-aging skincare products.
  4. It adds radiance. Hydrated skin reflects light better than dry skin. Since hyaluronic acid hydrates skin actively, it actually makes your complexion look more radiant.
  5. It is suitable for everyone. Hyaluronic acid is a well-tolerated ingredient that is suitable
    for all skin types and people of all ages. It works well even on oilier skins and skin prone to acne
    if the product is lightweight and oil-free. Products with hyaluronic acid are also easy to combine with your usual skincare routine as hyaluronic acid does not clash with other ingredients or lose its efficacy easily. Only fruit acids, such as glycolic acid, with low pH levels can weaken the potency of hyaluronic acid.​
