Ingredient Glossary: Hyaluronic Acid

A new year brings a new set of resolutions, but one thing ALWAYS remains the same, and that is the quest for plump, hydrated, luminous and youthful looking skin.

Which brings us to this month’s ingredient highlight: Hyaluronic Acid

What is it?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is an active skincare ingredient that retains moisture and creates a cushion like effect, to plump and hydrate the skin. Loved for its unique ability to intensely hydrate the complexion, it also assists in the healing of the skin, whilst soothing and cooling inflammation. Capable of absorbing into the deepest layers of the epidermis, it softens, hydrates and smoothes the skin at a cellular level.

What does it do?

Hyaluronic Acid has been designed at a specific molecular weight to instantly absorb into the skin, and due to its lightweight texture and cooling consistency we haven’t met many complexions that this powerhouse ingredient doesn’t suit. When applied onto cleansed skin, Hyaluronic Acid will absorb into the complexion at a cellular level to provide instant hydration, antioxidant defense and protection against free-radical damage.

Do I need it?

YES,throughout the seasons our skin will experience some level of dehydration, combine that with the fact that every day we lose up to ½ a litre of water and you’ve got the perfect recipe for skin that is dull, dehydrated, and lacklustre. Truth be told, this is when HA will become your best friend, boosted with moisture loving ingredients to intensely hydrate and plump, whilst its unique lightweight consistency allows the skin to feel refreshed and cool in the warmer months.
