Decoding The Label: Hyaluronic Acid

Tuesday 23 July 2013

Anything with the word acid in it can conjure up scary thoughts. But not all acids are the scary kind. 

Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in our body and holds 1000ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid. It keeps the moisture locked into our skin and makes your skin plump and youthful. It doesn't just make our skin look healthy, but it also helps our joints. What's amazing about it is the fact that it can adjust its absorption rate in different climates (which is great if you're in a high humidity environment).

When you have moisture loss (or dehydrated skin), the skins texture can feel rough, dry and tight (in a bad way). Applying a product that has Hyaluronic acid will plump up the skin, boost the skins moisture content and helps prevent moisture loss and make it feel moisturised. It will also assist the skin to work the way it's supposed to. 

Hyaluronic Acid is great to add into your skin routine as you age. Your moisture levels drop as you age, and it means that skins elasticity reduces and aging signs show up more easily. Our diet and smoking can effect the hylauronic acid levels in our body, so it's important to look after our skin inside and out. 

Unlike other ingredients, it can actually penetrate the skin and work below the skins surface. Because it works below the surface, our skins natural barrier locks in the moisture and keeps our skin hydrated and healthy.  

If you have dry or dehydrated skin, Hyaluronic acid is the ingredient that you need to add into your routine.
