Out of all the buzzword, superstar skincare ingredients of the past 10 years, Hyaluronic Acid is one of our most enduring favourites. Why? Because it's one of the easiest, quickest and most gentle ways to transform dull and dry skin, making it softer, smoother and more radiant in seconds.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural, magical hydrator molecule that is already present in our skin, but our natural levels of Hyaluronic Acid often decrease with age and poor hydration, leaving skin looking duller, dryer and more slack.
Thankfully, if you are struggling with dry and dehydrated skin (especially after the colder winter months), there are some beautiful skincare formulations that can help you to top up your levels of Hyaluronic Acid and rejuvenate the skin.
That's why we have put together this short guide on the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, and included some of our favourite nature and cleanly formulated products with this miracle molecule.
BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID
- It delivers an instant boost of hydration to the skin, plumping up fine lines and wrinkles, leaving it instantly feeling velvety-soft and smooth.
- It will help to firm and tone the skin, while improving the strength of the skin barrier straightaway.
- Hyaluronic Acid retains 1000 times its weight in water, so the hydrating effect can last up to 24 hours, for around-the-clock moisture and long-term restoration of the skin.
- It helps to stimulate skin cell regeneration while protecting from everyday pollutants and irritation.
- Our favourite benefit is that it revitalises dull skin, giving more radiance, minimising pigmentation and preventing age spots.
This is why you will find Hyaluronic Acid in a range of products, from serums to moisturisers, lip balms to foundations. It's a seriously powerful skincare addition that is useful for all skin types, even oily and blemished skin, as it can help to balance and soothe the skin while enhancing the skin barrier.
