Hyaluronic acid is the beauty buzzword of the year, but what is it and why do you need it? There are lots of trends in the beauty industry and it can be difficult, not to mention expensive, to keep up with it all, but hyaluronic acid is here to stay and that’s because of it’s amazing benefits!
Firstly, don’t let the name scare you off, hyaluronic acid is a moisturising miracle! Unlike the scary name suggests, it’s something our bodies naturally produce, and it plays a vital part in helping skin stay hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, which helps to moisturise and protect your skin.
So, what exactly is hyaluronic acid?
Otherwise known as sodium hyaluronate, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar, or polysaccharide if you want to be fancy, that is present in our skin and connective tissue. A single molecule can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, which is gradually released into the skin, so it plays a crucial role in helping skin stay plump and hydrated over a period of time.
What does it do for skin?
How does it work?
Hyaluronic acid gradually releases hydration into the skin, in the process plumping, softening fine lines and giving skin an overall radiant look.
Who should I use it?
If you didn’t already have enough reasons to introduce hyaluronic acid to your skincare regime, you’ll also be pleased to know that it works well for a wide range of skin conditions due to how powerful yet gentle it is.
Can it burn your skin?
Absolutely not! Unlike many acids, hyaluronic acid doesn’t strip or exfoliate skin, instead, it delivers gentle, long-lasting hydration.
