Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the crème de la crème of skin hydration – there are so many benefits, you would be committing a serious skincare crime if HA is not already part your daily routine. Let’s look into what it is and what is does for our skin.  

Hyaluronic Acid is a clear substance that is produced in your body naturally and often found in your skin and eyes. You may have heard your beautician or optometrist talk about HA as the ingredient is typically found in eye drops, injections, and topical serums for some extra skin boost. In one way or another, this popular acid is in many skincare products and you might have already been using it! But what exactly are the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid? Let’s take a look! 

Moisture control  

The number one benefit of using Hyaluronic Acid is it is incredibly effective in providing lasting moisture for your skin throughout the day. Although we naturally produce Hyaluronic Acid - ageing, exposure to sun and cigarette smoke can zap the much-needed moisture from our skin which we need to achieve a healthy, plump complexion. Fortunately, with the use of products that include HA, you can prevent sad, flaky, dehydrated skin.  

Decreases wrinkles and smooths skin  

No matter your age, Hyaluronic Acid can help improve the appearance of your skin’s texture. By retaining moisture to the skin, the powerful ingredient helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, promising a plumper and more youthful complexion. Underneath the outer layer of the skin, HA can also contribute to increased cell production as the skin isn’t busy fighting for hydration. 

Healing powers 

Hyaluronic Acid is the superhero behind the wound healing processWhile our body naturally produces HA, it ramps this up when injured to help speed up the healing process. The increased production can help with the tissue regeneration, while also relieving inflammation. Some studies show this mighty acid also has antibacterial properties, meaning it can assist in reducing the risk of infection. 

There you have it  Hyaluronic Acid serves so many purposes to our skin and we LOVE it! If you are looking for products that have Hyaluronic Acid in it, try our Bright Eyes Cream and Rejuvenating HY C Serum.
