What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid, or HA (hyaluronic acid), is a hit when it comes to collecting and binding moisture. It is found naturally in the body’s tissues such as eyes and joints, but above all in the skin. It is, despite the name, not an acid but a type of sugar with molecules that bind and attract moisture in and on the skin. Which results in smoother and plumper skin. From the age of 25, the body’s own production of hyaluronic acid decreases, which means that we need replenishment.
How do I use hyaluronic acid?
It is most effective to use a serum with hyaluronic acid – as serums are more concentrated, the moisturizer penetrates the skin more easily. If you want a quick boost, it is most effective to use a sheet mask. In order to choose the right product according to what your skin needs, there are a few things that are good to know. Those with low molecular weight penetrate deeper into the skin layer, which gives a longer-lasting difference. Those with higher molecular weight form a fluid reservoir on top of the skin.
The moisturizer is something that works for basically everyone, as moisture does not damage the skin but only makes it more hydrated. We definitely think it’s a must in the summer bathroom cabinet. On the contents package, look for names such as hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, sodium hyaluronate and sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer.
