Why Hyaluronic Acid is so magical for your skin

hyaluronicacidOne amazing fact about Hyaluronic Acid is that it is an humectant, which means each molecule can attract and hold on to 1000 x its own weight in moisture from its surroundings.  It works hard to keep every aspect of skin stable, safeguarded and constantly renewed.

Hyaluronic Acid can therefore enhance moisture levels like no other ingredient.  It revitalises the outer surface layers of the skin, so it looks and feels softer, smoother and radient – instantly improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Introducing Hyaluronic Acid into your topical skin care routine

Hyaluronic acid is incredibly popular and can be found in many skincare products.  To get the hydrating benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, it’s best to choose a moisturising cream, lotion or serum. Look for Hyaluronic Acid or Sodium  Hyaluronate on the product’s ingredient label.

Sodium hyaluronate is a salt derived from Hyaluronic Acid and because of the smaller molecule size, is easily absorbed into the skin.  Ideally the product should contain 1% or higher HA.  Any less, and it’s not likely to have many benefits for your skin.  if the product doesn’t show the percentage of HA, make sure it’s high on the list of ingredients.

Apply Hyaluronic Acid serums after cleansing or washing your face and use a moisturiser over the top to seal it.  For best results, use only one product containing HA at a time and seal with a moisturiser or oil.
