Ahh Hyaluronic Acid, one of the most popular ingredients in skincare. Whether you’re a skincare newbie or a long-time skincare enthusiast, you’ve probably heard about Hyaluronic Acid and its benefits. For a quick recap, Hyaluronic Acid, or “HA”, is a naturally occurring substance found in our body. It’s primarily found in our skin, eyes, and joints. Its main function? Hydration 😎💦

As we age, the moisture in our skin decreases which is why Hyaluronic Acid became a widely formulated ingredient that can be found in cleansers, toners, serums, etc.
Here are our top 3 reasons why Hyaluronic Acid is great for your skin:
Smooths skin texture (like a criminal undercover 🕺)
Our skin looks its best when it’s healthy and hydrated. Dehydrated skin can result in dryness, dullness, irritation, and premature wrinkles. When applied, Hyaluronic Acid binds water to the skin which results in giving you that plump and hydrated glow!
Promotes skin balance
Hyaluronic Acid is one of those ingredients that are great for every skin type! You can’t go wrong with hydration!
It’s been said countless times before that people with oily skin also need hydration as this oiliness could be coming from dehydrated skin. When your skin is dehydrated, it will tend to overproduce sebum to compensate for the lack of hydration. Adding Hyaluronic Acid to your routine will help balance it out.
Strengthens the skin barrier
Our skin barrier protects us from an onslaught of harmful toxins every day. Over time, the skin barrier weakens which makes our skin more susceptible to damage from environmental aggressors, pollution, etc. We need to fortify our skin with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid to protect and strengthen it.
With all of its benefits, it’s no wonder why Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most popular ingredients in skin care! Since serums are known to deliver high concentrations of a specific ingredient, it is the best way to include it into your skin care routine.
