Hyaluronic acid new miracle skincare ingredient – here’s why
Hands up if you know what’s in your skincare? Checking the ingredients label before you invest in new products is important not only to make sure the product is right for your skin, but also to ensure it’ll have the desired effect.
Hyaluronic acid can be found in many skincare products. This common skincare ingredient offers multiple skin benefits to leave you with a softer, smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. Want to know more? Here’s what’s so great about it.
- It’s all natural
Unlike many skincare ingredients, hyaluronic acid is completely natural and is found in your skin’s connective tissues. So why do you need to invest in products containing this ingredient? Over time, our levels of hyaluronic acid deplete. Babies are born with a high level (giving them smooth, soft skin), but diminishing levels of hyaluronic acid as we age can contribute to lines and wrinkles.
- It’s suitable for all skin types
Whether your skin is naturally oily or more on the dry side, hyaluronic acid is suitable for all skin types. What’s more, it doesn’t react with sunscreen, acne medication or anti-ageing products so you can use it as part of your daily skincare regime with no worries.
- It’s great for moisturising
If your skin is looking and feeling a bit parched, hyaluronic acid can give it a much-needed hydration boost. Capable of carrying water molecules up to 1,000 times its weight, this skincare ingredient prevents moisture loss, leaving your skin looking smooth, soft and full.
- It has anti-ageing benefits
A known defender against damaging free-radicals, hyaluronic acid helps to prevent (and correct) the early signs of ageing.
- It’ll sort your pigmentation woes
The antioxidants found in hyaluronic acid help to reduce inflammation, combatting unwanted redness and leaving you with a more even skin tone.
So there you have it, hyaluronic acid really is the skincare ingredient to look out for. Share your top skincare tips on our Facebook page today.
