Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient highly under estimated for it's ability to keep our skin youthful. It's found naturally in our skin and connective tissue such as our joints and eyes. As we age it decreases rapidly when our skin is exposed to an excessive amount of UVB rays. Our skin over time slows down the production of Hyaluron leading to sagging, dull dry skin. However, you can slow down the process by ensuring you eat the right foods and apply sunscreen to protect your skin and use a hyaluronic serum to give your skin a boost.
You will also find Hyaluronic Acid is often referred to as Hyaluronan, Sodium Salt of Hyaluronic Acid or sodium hyaluronate.
Don’t be fooled by the term ‘Acid’ this is not an acid persa that strips or exfoliates your skin it's classed as a humectant that helps hold water in your skin to keep your skin hydrated, firm and plump. Your skin needs a balance between moisture, nourishment and hydration.
In a dry environment it can draw water from the skin into the HA thus dehydrating the skin. For this reason, HA should be used in combination with a moisturiser. Individuals with oily skin types have sufficient sebum to impart occlusive properties, therefore people with oily skin can use HA in any environment.
Hyaluronic Acid is great for any skin types especially those with oily or dry skin. Because Oily skin needs hydration without more oil and dry skin needs a bit of both.
Our HA serum is a great layering product as it can be used before applying your moisturiser or serum as it will give your skin that extra boost of hydration and nourishment. It's so light weight that it sinks into your skin immediately so when you do apply your moisturiser or oil serum it won't feel heavy on your skin. Better still it doesn't clog your pores.
It's a key ingredient contributing to skin hydration, skin volume and youthful appearance.
