Updated: Feb 17, 2021
Here’s a skin loving ingredient loved by all.
Hyaluronic Acid is a skincare ingredient good for all skin types. It is also suitable for acne-prone skin. Sodium Hyaluronate is the derivative of H.A. mostly used in products.
It is a naturally occurring substance (sugar molecule) in skin known to attract and hold 1,000 times its weight in moisture.
It is a humectant, it draws moisture from its surrounding and is often found in water-based moisturizers, serums and other leave-on skincare or haircare products to help boost hydration.
It helps to bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, making your skin appear plumper and more hydrated. Therefore, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid can be found in serums, moisturizers, facial masks, toners, you name it! It can also be found in haircare products, such as conditioners or styling products. It is a great addition with any skincare routine.
