Hyaluronic acid has gained a cult following among beauty enthusiasts over a couple of years, and we’re not complaining. This popular ingredient attracts and holds up to 1000x its weight in moisture. Apart from retaining moisture, here are five other reasons that make this product worth the hype…

 

Hydrates skin

The first word that comes to mind when you talk about hyaluronic acid is hydration. While most people know about this benefit, it’s worth mentioning it again. It penetrates deep into the layers of the skin while infusing each layer with rejuvenating moisture. It’s gentle in nature and therefore suitable for every skin type, including sensitive skin.

 

Improves skin texture

Improves skin texture

The skin loses its elasticity over time and the ability to repair itself slows down. When the skin is exposed to chemicals and environmental aggressors like pollution, it ruins the texture of the skin making it uneven and rough. While your skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid. it is not enough. Topical application of this hydrating ingredient will improve the texture of the skin and make it smooth.

 

Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

One of the reasons why skin starts ageing prematurely is because it loses its moisture and does not look plump and healthy anymore. Hyaluronic acid can retain moisture into the skin and have a plumping effect. When skin receives hydration externally, it doesn’t have to work overtime to produce its own. This boosts skin cell production and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Promotes skin cell turnover

When your skin receives extra hydration, it boosts skin cell regeneration and improves the skin’s natural barrier. This results in healthier, younger-looking skin and a radiant complexion.

Improved cell turnover also helps reduce pigmentation and dark spots. Having said that, please don’t depend on hyaluronic acid alone. Combine it with your regular skincare products that address common skincare concerns like ageing, blemishes and uneven skin tone.
