Whether it’s down to your skin type, your lack of water consumption, the weather or your environment, dry/dehydrated skin is something we all experience at some point in our lives. However, by adding hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine, it might just be a problem of the past.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) might sound daunting but it’s actually a substance that is already naturally produced by bodies. It keeps our tissue well lubricated and is also found in our eyes and joints. Like collagen, it’s also responsible for giving our skin that youthful, plump appearance that depletes as we age.
How does it work?
In the skincare world there are three types of moisturisers: emollients, occlusives and humectants.humectants like hyaluronic acid add moisture to the skin by drawing water molecules from the environment. This is why hyaluronic acid is such a popular ingredient as it’s the only one that actually adds that lost moisture back and we’re not talking just a little bit; it can hold up 1,000x its own weight in water.
What are the benefits?
The main one is reducing dryness and dehydration, which if left untreated can damage your skin barrier, leading to a whole range of concerns. Hyaluronic acid can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles thanks to its plumping abilities. Humectant moisturisers like HA are super lightweight so work for all skin types and won’t feel heavy or greasy on oily skin types. They are also a great option for teens and anyone just starting out with their skincare routine.
