Hyaluronic Acid

The Hydrating, Plumping Molecule Your Skincare Routine Needs

When it comes to getting dewy, hydrated skin, few products deliver the way some of the best hyaluronic acid serums do. While the fact that "acid" makes up 50 percent of the name hyaluronic acid, don't be fooled into thinking the ingredient is not for everyone; in fact, the substance is naturally produced by our bodies and holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water-— kind of like a molecular sponge.

   What are the benefits of using hyaluronic acid?

First and foremost, hyaluronic acid can be a fantastic moisturizer. When present in creams and serums, it penetrates the skin barrier to help with hydration. It can affect the skin by making the cells plump up, making it more dewy, more hydrated and moist. It can minimize the appearance of fine lines. Because hyaluronic acid is part of our body naturally, it is excellent for any skin type to use. It is non-irritating and far less likely to trigger skin conditions, so even people with sensitive skin can include it in their routine.  Hyaluronic acid is not only one of the most well-rounded skin care ingredients out there, but it’s also one of the most easily incorporated. Because it’s a product made naturally by the body, it can be used by pretty much everyone, no matter the age or skin type. In general, hyaluronic acid is non-irritating and won’t trigger an allergic reaction because it occurs naturally in the body

 Creams

A moisturizer is a lotion or cream which contains skin hydrating emollients and forms a physical barrier to help skin stay hydrated. Moisturizers have larger molecules than serums, so they don’t penetrate into the epidermis or surface layer of the skin. Their main benefit is that they seal the skin, locking in moisture and nutrients.
The thicker, heavier ingredients in moisturizing creams form a barrier on your skin designed to lock in moisture in. But it can also lock active ingredients in the moisturizer out of the skin, reducing their efficacy.

 Serums

Serums are lightweight, intensive skin care products formulated to penetrate deeply, allowing their active ingredients to combat free radical damage, skin pigmentation, aging, acne and scarring by delivering nutrients and vitamins right into the skin cells. Serums providing antioxidants, peptides, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C can have dramatic and swift effects on the radiance of skin by brightening, exfoliating and hydrating the skin. 
 Serums are designed to repair the skin at a cellular level and act on a wide range of skin health factors at the same time. If you have aged, damaged, scarred or sun damaged skin, a serum is your best choice to reduce the visible impacts on your skin. Serums act to improve skin firmness, smoothness and luminosity while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
