Hyaluronic Acid

When it comes to achieving radiant and hydrated skin, few ingredients can match the effectiveness of hyaluronic acid. It’s no wonder that it has garnered so much praise in the skincare world. Here are 5 things you need to know about hyaluronic acid so you can unlock its true potential and make it a must-have in your skincare routine

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin, joints, and connective tissues. Its main superpower? Hydration! HA can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an exceptional humectant. In simple terms, it attracts and locks in moisture, leaving your skin plump, soft, and oh-so-hydrated.

HA and all skin types

No matter your skin type – dry, oily, or sensitive – hyaluronic acid can work wonders for you. It's a lightweight and non-comedogenic ingredient, which means it won't clog your pores or make you feel greasy. Even if you have acne-prone skin, HA can help maintain moisture balance without causing breakouts.

Plays nice with others

Hyaluronic acid isn't just a superstar by itself; it can also enhance the efficacy of your other skincare products and ingredients. The deeper penetration of the small molecules not only replenishes moisture reservoirs, but acts as a powerful conduit for other actives. This means it's not only safe to use with all your other products (like vitamin C, niacinamide, and retinol), but it will actually boost their effectiveness, making it one of the best additions you could make to your skincare routine.

Weight matters 

The most effective formulations consist of a blend of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. High molecular weight HA forms a protective barrier on the skin's surface, locking in moisture and preventing transdermal water loss. On the other hand, low molecular weight HA penetrates deeper into the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving elasticity. Incorporating different weights into your skincare routine allows for hydration at different layers of the skin. The result? Smooth, plump skin. 

How to Incorporate HA into Your Routine

Now that you're convinced of hyaluronic acid's magic, you might be wondering how to introduce it into your skincare routine. Thanks to its versatility, you can find multiple forms of HA based on your needs and preferences, including serums, creams, masks, and even injectables. When applied topically, it delivers intense hydration, quenching your skin's thirst for moisture. 

Hyaluronic acid is a skincare hero that everyone needs in their daily regimen. With its ability to hydrate, penetrate different skin layers, and enhance the efficiency of other skincare products, it's a non-negotiable for healthy, radiant skin. In fact, we love it so much that we've included Hyalpol Matrix, a patented blend of 5 types of hyaluronic acid, in our Skin Perfecting Foundation. Make hyaluronic acid a part of your beauty journey, and say hello to coveted, glowing skin.
