Hyaluronic Acid - Quick Facts!

What does Hyaluronic Acid do for your skin?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound in your skin. It can also hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This gel-like water-holding molecule is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps keep skin plump and hydrated by improving skin hydration and the production of collagen. It also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help with wound healing.

As we age, we produce less and less hyaluronic acid, so we need to add it back in.

Why is my skin dry after using hyaluronic acid?

Whether hyaluronic acid hydrates or dries your skin depends upon how you use it and how your skin reacts. To properly use a hyaluronic acid serum, it needs to be applied onto damp skin and then ‘sealed in’ with a layer of good moisturiser on top.

Hyaluronic acid is great for healing burns and hydrating skin, but it isn’t a miracle ingredient for everyone. If you can’t get it to work with your skin, try a polyglutamic acid serum instead.
