You’re seeing it everywhere, and for good reason. Hyaluronic acid is a pretty essential ingredient for many anti-aging beauty products. Your body naturally produces the acid to keep your skin hydrated and it also keeps your eyes and joints lubricated. But as we get older, our body’s natural hydration system starts to slow down and therefore produces less and less hyaluronic acid.
When you’re not getting the proper hydration your skin needs, you start to get those irritating fine lines and wrinkles. Over time your skin will lose its structure and start to sag, but hyaluronic acid can help. It’s unique in that it can hold a massive amount of moisture — up to 1,000 times its weight in water! You can get effective hydration with the tiniest amount of hyaluronic acid, and potency = power! Even more impressively, it hydrates your skin without going overboard. When your skin has all the moisture it needs to be healthy and luminous, it won’t hold onto anything it doesn’t need (like toxins and bacteria). Another plus is that hyaluronic acid is very gentle and safe to use on almost any skin type. But like always, we recommend starting with a patch test just to be sure.
How to use it
Since it’s anti-aging properties were discovered, hyaluronic acid is widely available in multiple ways. There are gels to help treat mouth sores, oral medications to reduce the pain from osteoarthritis, and even a liquid that is used during cataract surgeries. Now, you don’t have to go to any extreme to get some for yourself.
As a beauty product, hyaluronic acid is available in serums and moisturizers. The simpliest way to get the hydration boost your skin needs is through a serum. The serums are designed to deeply penetrate your skin with tiny little molecules to deliver the dosage your skin needs, right where it needs it. Try using a hyaluronic acid serum right after cleaning and right before moisturizing. Your skin will start absorbing the moisture it needs, but applying a moisturizer right after the serum will help lock it in.
Choosing a product
We worked hard to develop two amazing serums that partner hyaluronic acid with more powerful ingredients that help reduce the signs of aging and give you that perfect glowing skin.
First up is the Age Defying Hyaluronic Acid Serum. The serum is packed full with hyaluronic acid and Vitamins C and E. The combination help soften your skin and give it a silky glow. The ingredient will send moisture deep into your skin and give it a long-lasting boost. The hyaluronic acid will also help reduce the appearance of skin damage from sun, pollution, and even cigarette smoke.
Second is the Retinol Face Serum partners the hyaluronic acid with Retinol, Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil, and Organic Green Tea. The dynamic duo of Retinol and hyaluronic acid helps visibly reduce signs of aging and give your skin a youthful complexion.
