What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do For My Skin?

So what does Hyaluronic Acid do? Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard about Hyaluronic Acid. But what exactly does HA do and how do you know if it's right for you? And on top of that, where does it fit into your regular skincare routine? That's exactly what you'll find out in today's video. 

Hyaluronic Acid is produced naturally in our body but it diminishes over time. Thank goodness we can now replace what we've lost over time with these amazing new targeted serums!  It has an appeal all its own due to its unique texture and application as well as its humectant properties. I use it daily and I can't wait to tell you more!

Hyaluronic Acid

The Benefits

HA is a humectant — a substance that retains moisture — and it is capable of binding over one thousand times its weight in water. This substance is naturally found in our eyes, joints, ligaments, and tendons. Hyaluronic Acid used in beauty and skincare products is made in a lab via a process called biofermentation.

As we age, hyaluronic acid decreases. As a result, our skin loses volume, hydration, and plumpness. But thankfullly, we can compensate for this loss with HA serum. When selecting a serum, look for Hyaluronic Acid as the primary ingredient along with ceramides and peptides for even more benefits.

Hyaluronic Acid:

hydrates the skin's surface
helps protect your skin barrier
can (temporarily) plump up fine lines

Hyaluronic Acid is safe for all skin types and although it has "acid" in its name, this hydrating product is very gentle. The texture of HA is slippery; similar to aloe-vera. A great time to apply it is when your face is wet, since HA not only provides moisture, but helps hold it in. 

Another interesting fact is that Hyaluronic Acid can be added to your skincare routine regardless of the other products you are currently using. HA does not cause adverse reactions when used with other active ingredients. It is even considered an excellent base to combine other serums with.
