Hyaluronic Acid Hype
It’s time to add hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine.
If you’ve been searching for the key to hydrated skin, hyaluronic acid is your answer. Maybe you’ve seen a celeb showing off a bottle of it in a commercial or maybe you’ve seen an influencer claim they're obsessed with it. Believe the hype and get yourself a bottle.
If you’re unfamiliar with hyaluronic acid , don’t let ‘acid’ in the name scare you. Popularly known as a skincare ingredient, it’s actually naturally produced in our bodies as well. Hyaluronic acid keeps our skin hydrated and plump, giving us that natural glow.
What exactly is hyaluronic acid?
To get scientific, hyaluronic acid also known as HA is a naturally occurring sugar molecule that retains moisture by binding to water. Found in our skin, joints, and eyes, the benefits it brings us seem endless. Besides hydrating our skin, its benefits also include joint pain relief, increased wound healing time, reduction of acid reflux, and reduced dry eye symptoms.
Basically, hyaluronic acid is a blessing. Thank you for the hydration!
How can hyaluronic acid help my skin?
When applied topically, it does wonders for our skin’s moisture barrier. Our skins are highly absorbent, so it loves getting that extra hydration boost. When applying a hyaluronic acid serum, not only does it give our skin that smooth, glowy look, it also reduces acne, sun damage, redness, and wrinkles.
If you’re worried your skin type isn’t suitable for hyaluronic acid, fear not! It’s suitable for all skin types so whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin, hyaluronic acid is there for you. It’s non-comedogenic, meaning it does not cause blocked pores, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin as well.
Is hyaluronic acid just for my face?
Hyaluronic acid’s benefits don’t just stop at your face, you can apply it on your body as well. Remember, skincare isn’t just for your face! Your body deserves some nourishment and care as well, especially if you’ve just exfoliated or removed hair. That’s why we’ve equipped our our Silk Slip serum with three different molecular sizes of HA. The various sizes allow for better penetration in different skin, so you can use it every day on your face as well as your body.
The larger molecules are easily absorbed in the thicker skin around knees and elbows while the finer molecules are gently absorbed into the thinner skin of the face. The cotton leaf extract also protects your skin from environmental toxins that could cause skin irritation.
