Hyaluronic Acid: The Hydration Hero


Jun 13, 2024
Dermatologists, beauty editors and skinfluencers alike agree that the hype around hyaluronic acid for hydrating the skin and providing dewy, glowy results is well-deserved. But don't be misled by the word “acid” into thinking it's harmful­—it’s anything but! Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a powerful humectant, an ingredient that acts like a sponge that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Known to penetrate your skin’s surface layers to plump the look of skin with 2X more moisture, this skin care superhero delivers deep hydration and helps bring back the skin’s natural bounce.

Benefits For Every Skin Type

A versatile skin care ingredient, hyaluronic acid is suitable for various skin types, particularly those needing hydration:

Dry Skin

Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture from the environment and helps retain it in the skin. If you have dry skin you may benefit as it has hydrating elements which can help combat tightness and flakiness.

Oily or Breakout-Prone Skin

Despite its hydrating properties, hyaluronic acid is typically non-comedogenic, meaning it won't clog pores. It provides lightweight hydration without adding extra oil to the skin, making it a great option if you have oily skin or can be prone to breakouts.

Combination Skin

It’s a great option for combination skin as it helps hydrate dry areas while balancing oil production in the T-zone, helping to maintain overall skin balance.

Mature Skin

Did you know that as we age, our skin's natural hyaluronic acid levels decrease, leading to loss of volume and elasticity? Using it in skin care products can help plump up the look of skin, help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and restore a more youthful look.

Skin with Situational or Seasonal Dehydration

Environmental factors such as sun exposure, harsh weather conditions, air conditioning and indoor heating can lead to skin dehydration. Hyaluronic acid helps replenish lost moisture, keeping the skin hydrated and soft.
