What is hyaluronic acid? Hyaluronic acid benefits? Which skin types should use hyaluronic acid? Will hyaluronic acid exfoliate my face?
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Technically, it's a group of sugar molecules called polysaccharides. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the connective tissues of our body. It acts as a support and lubricant to the tissues in the body. It is more commonly found in our skin, eyes, and joints than in other areas.
Over time, your body's stores of hyaluronic acid decrease. According to research, environmental factors such as aging, sun rays, smoking and air pollution also accelerate this process.
HOW DOES HYALURONIC ACID WORK ON SKIN?This substance attracts moisture like a magnet, helping your cells retain as much moisture as possible so that your skin looks hydrated, plump and healthy.
Just a single gram of hyaluronic acid has an impressive ability to hold up to six liters of water. In addition, it is highly skilled at regulating the humidity inside the cells.
Because hyaluronic acid is capable of holding up to 1000 times its weight in water, it locks in skin moisture and instantly hydrates dry areas throughout the day.
HYALURONIC ACID BENEFITSHere are four reasons why your skin should reap the benefits of Hyaluronic acid.
- Moisturizes the Skin: It gives the skin a soft, plump, supple and tight feeling. Moist skin looks much brighter.
- Eliminates Fine Lines: When skin is hydrated, lines and wrinkles (even the deeper ones) appear reduced, so it's a great ingredient for those experiencing skin aging and wanting to return their skin to its youthful vitality.
- Normalizes Oil Secretion: When the skin is moist, it secretes less oil, which prevents oil-induced acne, blackheads and comedones.
- Has Antioxidant Effects: Recent research shows that hyaluronic acid also has antioxidant properties, meaning it can act as a shield against free radicals beyond our control, such as pollution and other environmental threats.
FOR WHICH SKIN TYPES IS HYALURONIC ACID SERUM SUITABLE?
Water is the source of life for all living things. Hyaluronic acid gives great results in all skin types as it retains water in the skin tissues and enables it to be used efficiently.
- Effectively moisturizing dry skin.
- Balancing oil secretion of oily skin.
- Adjusting the moisture balance in the T zone and cheeks of combination skin,
- Hyaluronic acid is a very important ingredient in calming sensitized skin.
WHY USE HYALURONIC ACID CREAM?If you want to maintain your youthful glow, it's definitely a good idea to add a skincare product that contains hyaluronic acid to your anti-aging skincare routine to give your skin more moisture.
You can find hyaluronic acid in many skin and hair care products, make-up products, and sunscreen.
Although hyaluronic acid is mostly seen on its own in serum form, many skin moisturizing creams also contain hyaluronic acid due to its moisturizing properties.
DOES HYALURONIC ACID PEEL MY FACE?
Unlike known "acids", hyaluronic acid is not an exfoliant substance.
Although hyaluronic acid is referred to as "acid" due to its chemical structure, it does not have a peeling effect on the skin, as it is not in the group of skin acids such as AHA and BHA.
The job of hyaluronic acid is to lubricate the joints and also to retain moisture in our skin matrix.
IS HYALURONIC ACID SAFE TO USE AT HOME?
As we age, skin moisture drops significantly. This causes the skin to lose its elasticity and the appearance of signs of aging on the skin.
Since hyaluronic acid is a substance that will provide moisture to the skin very quickly in cases of decreased moisture in the skin, it is a very useful ingredient to use in home skin care.
In addition, the fact that it is not an exfoliant makes hyaluronic acid a completely safe ingredient for home use, regardless of its concentration.
HOW TO USE HYALURONIC ACID?
Unlike other potent serums or active ingredients that need to be applied especially in the morning or at night, hyaluronic acid is quite flexible to use. It is a flexible cosmetic active that gives you the freedom to apply at any time during the day, regardless of morning or evening.
Fully compatible, hyaluronic acid is incompatible with other potent skin care actives. For this reason, after cleansing and toning your skin, you can immediately apply your serum containing hyaluronic acid while your skin is damp or wet. This causes hyaluronic acid to absorb more moisture. After applying the hyaluronic acid serum, locking in moisture with your moisturizer and oil-based serum will give your skin great results.
