Why Hyaluronic Acid Is A Must

What is Hyaluronic Acid and why is it so important?

Sounds like something you wouldn’t put near your skin, doesn’t it?! However, Hyaluronic Acid is actually something our skin cells produce naturally in order to help maintain moisture levels. It’s the key to flawless, well hydrated skin and a smoother complexion.

Don’t be fooled by the word ‘acid’. It’s actually a gel-like molecule that is a moisture-binding ingredient which helps keep skin plump and hydrated. It’s powerful stuff, working as a magnet for moisture, and a single gram of Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 6 litres of water.

Natural hydration levels often take a dip as a result of ageing, the environment, make up and stress. The result, sadly, is dullness, fine lines, an uneven tone to our skin and increased sensitivity. The good news is that Hyaluronic Acid can be applied topically so it’s an ingredient you can look for in your skincare products, and it’s totally safe!

There are so many reasons to look out for this ingredient. Studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid not only helps improve skin hydration but also encourages the production of collagen, fights free radicals, maintains skin elasticity and even has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to help with wound healing.

As we age, the amount of Hyaluronic Acid our skin cells produce begins to lessen and cell turnover can become sluggish - this is is when lines, wrinkles and a rough texture tend to make their debut. As skin moisture drops with age, the skin loses elasticity which exposes signs of ageing on the skin. Hyaluronic Acid acts as the ultimate drink for your skin and keeps moisture locked in, quenching parched patches instantly and cumulatively all day. If you’re looking to maintain a youthful glow, we recommend you incorporate Hyaluronic Acid into your skincare routine.

“Because of its ability to draw and hold water, it can be used as a humectant in your skin care regimen,” says Dr. Rachel Nazarian, a dermatologist at the Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City. “It continually keeps skin moisturized throughout the day.”

On average, our body naturally contains approximately 15 grams of Hyaluronic Acid but a third of that gets degraded and synthesised every day. We also produce less and less as we age. Plastic surgeons often inject Hyaluronic Acid into sunken areas of skin to plump it up, but you can reap the benefits without injections. Just choose a serum or moisturiser that contains Hyaluronic Acid for daily use.

Delivering gentle hydration to where your skin needs it the most, Hyaluronic Acid is beneficial for all skin types, even sensitive skin, oily skin or skin prone to breakouts.
