Top benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for skin

“The good news: There are no fancy machines or crazy rituals required to copy good habits. “

Hyaluronic Acid is a group of sugar molecules called polysaccharides, otherwise known as Glycosaminoglycan. Too geeky and useless of a definition, right?
Well, this is every Google website definite ever! Fret not my pretty ladies, in today’s article we are going to learn everything about HA and without our geek glasses on. And to begin with, yes, it is a crucial skincare ingredient before you completely write it off!

Hyaluronic Acid is known as a humectant

Hyaluronic Acid is known as a humectant, i.e. it collects moisture from the environment and keeps it contained in your skin holding the water. As a result, your skin remains hydrated.
Have ever seen a toddler and felt like squeezing their cheeks because it’s so plump, radiant and cute? Yes, that’s Hyaluronic Acid. We are all born with HA in our skin’s natural structure, and over time, it depletes and causes the wrinkles, fine lines and dryness. That is why it is necessary to incorporate HA products into the skincare regime to maintain that natural, younger-looking skin.

Fun fact: Hyaluronic Acid can hold 1000x its weight in water.  

 

1. One way ticket to moisturized skin

Hyaluronic Acid is often associated with dry and ageing skin because as we age, HA tends to exhaust from our system and makes the skin look dull and tired. However, with this ingredient, the hydration will remain lasting and give you a radiant look. The molecules penetrate the skin’s layers and hold the moisture for a long time.

2. Anti-ageing superhero

During the late twenties or when you have stepped into the big 3-0, you will notice how the shine lessens, and wrinkles appear around the eyes and mouth. To achieve that smooth and youthful glow, invest in a good serum or cream that has Hyaluronic Acid. It will help with the sagging elasticity of the skin and sun lines. Regular usage will also keep the skin firm and toned.

3. Skin armour

Once the skin loses its elasticity, it is vulnerable to harmful elements of the environment like dust, pollution and UV rays. Hyaluronic Acid will strengthen the skin’s protective barrier to give you brighter and healthier skin. 

4. Anti-inflammatory properties

With regular usage of Hyaluronic Acid, your skin will heal quickly and soothe easily. This is truly a boon for people with excessively dry, sensitive and eczema-prone skin.

5. Fillers

It is not exactly something you can do by sitting at home, but Hyaluronic Acid is injectable (under the supervision of a professional). It is injected into lips and facial skin to have the extra plump effect for a period of six months to a year.

 

There are so many Hyaluronic Acid products, which ones should I buy?

Ideally, it is recommended to invest in a good HA serum with multiple molecular weights. That means, look for a formula that contains at least 1% and higher. Anything less than that is just superficial. Also, serums are easily absorbed into the skin to deliver the best results.

When should I apply Hyaluronic Acid?

At night time, after your standard CTM routine. 

Why is Hyaluronic Acid not working for my skin?

That is because of either two reasons. One, you HAVE TO follow it up with an excellent facial oil or moisturiser. HA will only work if it is followed up by a hydrating skincare product. Otherwise, it will just dry out the skin.

Two, you are living in a very dry environment. If there is no humidity in the air, Hyaluronic Acid won’t work. In that case, use a humidifier in your room.

Products – Hyaluronic Acid is mostly incorporated into skincare products. Apart from that, you will also find it in eye creams or serums and a particular bunch of cosmetics; if you see the term “sodium hyaluronate” that’s the cosmetic cousin of HA. It is not as effective, though. 

That’s all about Hyaluronic Acid. Let us know about your experience using HA in your skincare.
