Who Needs Hyaluronic Acid

I love Hyaluronic Acid. It’s a cornerstone of skincare.
Our bodies make hyaluronic acid however we manufacture less and less as we get older.

Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant that is naturally occurring in the body.
A humectant pulls moisture out of its surroundings and binds it to cells.
When you apply a skincare product with a decent amount and decent quality of Hyaluronic Acid to your face and neck, it pulls moisture out of the air and binds it to your skin cells.
This means your skin is more plump and hydrated.

Hyaluronic Acid is a great cosmetic ingredient for older, more mature skin and for dry skin.
If you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines, use a serum with a decent quality and amount of Hyaluronic Acid.
If you feel like your face needs more volume and plumping, a strong Hyaluronic Acid serum acts like topical plumping and filling.

Hyaluronic Acid doesn’t benefit rosacea or acne and young skin doesn’t need it.

Some faces might look pretty great most of the year but look more lackluster or depleted and dehydrated in winter. Winter is a great time to invest in a good Hyaluronic Acid serum. Your face will look more hydrated and dewy.

If you just can’t seem to correct dry, cracked hands, give them a good shot of a facial grade HA product then cover that with your body or hand lotion.

Use an HA serum under moisturizer in the morning and you probably won’t need a makeup primer. Just give it a couple minutes to work its magic before you put moisturizer over top.

Use it at bedtime and then sleep on real, pure silk. High quality, expensive silk is non absorbent and it won’t pull high quality skincare out of your skin. Your skincare products will work better.
