Let’s dive into the various ways hyaluronic acid can benefit your skin in the long run
These days, the market is flooded with a variety of skincare products that claim to do wonders for your skin. But the key to finding your miracle products is going through the ingredient list. One of the most versatile ingredients that have created a buzz these days is hyaluronic acid. From face washes, serums, and moisturisers to even shampoo and conditioner these days- hyaluronic acid is found to be the active ingredient in all types of products. Let us find out all about hyaluronic acid and its benefits to all skin types, especially during winter.
Benefits of Hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is known for several benefits for your skin. It is a mild acid that occurs naturally in the body and improves the skin’s moisture-binding ability. It is a humectant that can draw moisture from the atmosphere. Here are a few benefits you enjoy using a hyaluronic acid-based product:
Hyaluronic acid provides intense hydration as it is a humectant. It is an excellent option for dehydrated skin as it can rejuvenate the skin instantly. A product with a 1-2% concentration of hyaluronic acid would be sufficient to combat the intense dryness experienced during winter.
Improves skin barrier
The skin’s natural protective barrier is improved by hyaluronic acid. It acts as a shield against environmental aggressors like pollutants and harmful UV rays. Hyaluronic acid fortifies your skin by increasing the production of skin-identical lipids.
Since it protects the skin from environmental aggressors and improves the skin barrier, it can prevent ageing significantly. The protection against sunburns, pollutants, and other skin issues ensure your skin does not suffer too much damage. Products like the Dr G Hydra Cool Plumping Serum are the perfect choice to combat ageing with hyaluronic acid. Not only this, but it also contains niacinamide, aloe vera, and collagen peptides, all of which are known to fight early signs of ageing.
Who can benefit the most from this ingredient?
Hyaluronic acid is mild enough to be used by anybody, even those with sensitive skin. However, based on your skin type, you can pick different formulations of this ingredient.
Those who suffer from patchy and flaky skin or whose skin tends to get dry too quickly will find hyaluronic acid moisturisers highly beneficial and suitable. Since the product is a humectant, it ensures the skin stays hydrated for a long time. The Dr G HA Intense Moisturiser is one such product that suits all and particularly those who suffer from skin dehydration. Once you start using this product, you will notice how your skin instantly drinks it up without feeling tacky or dehydrated. It is truly magical.
How to use hyaluronic acid in skincare?
Hyaluronic acid is a versatile ingredient that is included in a variety of skincare. You will find face washes, serums, moisturisers, and lotions with hyaluronic acid as an active ingredient. To reap the maximum benefits, it is best to choose moisturisers or face serums infused with the ingredient. The hyaluronic acid gets absorbed easily and potently on damp skin.
Wash your face thoroughly with a mild cleanser. Then top it off with a hyaluronic acid face serum. Serums are usually lightweight and easily get absorbed on damp skin. You can follow it up with a moisturiser with the same ingredient. If you feel that your face is dried in the middle of the routine, use a facial mist to damp it. Remember, hyaluronic acid is best used on damp skin.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the star ingredients in many loved products available these days. At Skin by Dr G, we use this beloved ingredient in several of our best-selling products and you can easily witness the difference it makes by using the product for some time.
