Why We Love Hyaluronic Acid in our Skin-Care
The holy grail to soft and supple skin! Curious as to how exactly hyaluronic acid plays a role?
Well, for starters, Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural sugar component in your skin that gives it structure and lends it that hydration and plumpness. It’s something that certain body parts naturally generate like your joints, eyes, and of course, the skin, and the acid is where it gets the moisture from. But, here’s the catch, as we age, our skin’s moisture also drops down, which is where the role of products rich in hyaluronic acid comes into play.
Here are some more reasons why we absolutely love it in our skin-care regime!
Make Way for Anti-Ageing Benefits!
Where there’s hyaluronic acid, there is hydration and where there’s hydration, there is healthy skin. Hydrated skin also leads to the faded appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while making the skin smoother. There’s more! It also helps reduces skin redness and dermatitis, while giving you more youthful and firmer skin.
Bonjour Smooth and Supple Skin!
While the hyaluronic acid in skin-care products makes your skin tighter, it also helps in smoothening the texture, giving you that silky soft skin you’ve always dreamt of. It also promotes skin cell regeneration with its hydrating properties that speed up the renewal of scarred skin, leading to healthier and radiant skin. And no, this isn’t just bluff – we’re only backing what we’ve experienced ourselves!
Here’s to Clearer Skin!
Let’s break a common oily skin myth here, shall we? Based on a misconception, oily skin becomes oilier when hydrated and that’s where some people go wrong. When you strip oily skin of moisture, it naturally tries to rehydrate itself by producing more oil, making your skin oilier. So, contrary to these myths, acne-prone and oily skin also needs hydration and could certainly use the boons of hyaluronic acid.
This miraculous skin-care ingredient helps balance the moisture in your skin, preventing the excess secretion of oil that usually leads to clogged pores and breakouts. Moreover, it helps decrease and prevent pigmentation related skin concerns and dark spots that come with age.
Pro tip: Hyaluronic acid when paired with Vitamin C works like magic on dark spots!
So, now you know that hyaluronic acid is not simply a skin-care fad but a revolution in itself. From catering to your skin’s hydration needs to helping with anti-ageing, the ingredient can do it all. Not to mention, it’s a favourite for all skin types too! Ready to add it to your vanity?
