How To Use Hyaluronic Acid To Get Glowing Skin
Meet your favorite ingredient - Hyaluronic Acid - commonly found in your favorite SKYN serums and masks. It is one of the most essential components of your daily skincare routine. We know that hyaluronic acid boosts skins’ moisture levels and binds to water to plump up your skin and give you that dewy, glowy effect - but do you really know how to use hyaluronic acid?
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
First things first - what is HA? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in the human body, and its main uses and benefits are keeping skin moist and lubricated. In other words - hyaluronic acid is a moisture binder; it will attach itself to water in the cells and make them plump.
It is a powerful ingredient in skin care products and works as an outstanding moisturizer for all skin types.
BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID
As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid naturally. Hence, the skin becomes dehydrated more easily - which is why hyaluronic acid, which attracts moisture, is must-have when it comes to repairing your skin’s moisture barrier. Aside from aging, harsh weather, heaters, some skincare products, and underlying skin conditions can cause tiny breaks in the protective skin barrier, resulting in the water escape.
- Hyaluronic acid helps replenish and hold cell moisture, leading to glowing, plumped, and hydrated skin
- Since dehydrated skin is one of the leading causes of wrinkles, hyaluronic acid helps reduce the appearance of fine lines by hydrating skin
- Hyaluronic acid has another great feature, it quickly absorbs into the skin (and you lose less product)
- It is non-irritating and safe for use for all skin types and skin concerns
Generally, there aren't any known side effects of hyaluronic acid.
HOW TO USE HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic Acid entered into the world of beauty as a dermal filler changing the game. This type of HA is too large to be absorbed into the skin through creams, masks, and serums. Fortunately, thanks to chemists - Hyaluronic Acid is decreased, so it can penetrate deeper into epiderms and plump skin when and where you need it.
To get the best of Hyaluronic Acid, you need to use it correctly. As already mentioned, HA binds with water, delivering moisture into your skin. The best way to use hyaluronic acid is to use it in a sheet mask or serum and apply it to damp skin. After absorbing, apply moisturizer on top of it. This way, you will seal in the moisture and provide extra water for the hyaluronic acid to grip - this is extremely important if the air around you is dry.
As long as you are applying it to clean, damp skin - and locking it in with facial oil and moisturizer, you can use hyaluronic acid twice a day.
WHAT INGREDIENTS CAN BE COMBINED WITH HYALURONIC ACID?
Teaming up Hyaluronic Acid with exfoliators such as alpha hydroxyl acids is a great way to enjoy skin cell turnover benefits without dehydrating the skin. It also works great alongside other anti-age ingredients such as Vitamin C or Collagen, encouraging and protecting while hydrating and brightening your skin.
