Why the Beauty World is Obsessed With Hyaluronic Acid!

Have you heard of Hyaluronic Acid?  If you're not familiar with this skin care ingredient, you're probably thinking it's a peel?   Well, it's actually an incredibly powerful ingredient that has nothing to do with exfoliating.  It's the key to super hydrated, plumped, glowy skin!

The basics.

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural compound - we're all born with in our bodies and like most of the good stuff, it decreases with age.  Hyaluronic Acid is found in our joints, muscles and in our skin - it's kind of the CRC of the body - without it we'd become brittle and dry.

Why is it good in skin care?

As an ingredient, the easiest way to describe Hyaluronic Acid is that it is a 'dermal filler'.  It's most magical property is that it can absorb and hold 1000 times its weight in water.  By holding lots of water, it fills out wrinkles.

An equally impressive quality is that it preserves collagen, which in turn firms and plumps up the skin.

Where can I find it?

This must have ingredient is making it's way into ranges you can easily slip into your trolley, or pick up at your local pharmacy or department store.  One range making waves with our reviewers at the moment is the L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Filler range, consisting of a serum and day, night and eye cream,

Can I boost my skin care regime with Hyaluronic Acid?

What else do I need to know about using Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is like a water magnet - it draws water to itself.  So for the best results you should apply it to damp skin.  If you suffer from dry skin, or you apply it to skin that isnt damp, the Hyaluronic Acid will pull moisture from the skin, leaving it dryer in the long run.   Mist your face before applying your Hyaluronic treatment and lock it in with a moisturiser after, and you're set to experience your plumpest, most hydrated skin ever!

I have seen a lot of hype about this on social media and beauty ads. I am wondering this this will Help my pigmentation after pregnancy? Would love to try products and report on how my skin goes.

I have never tried and would love to try this product. My skin is in dire need of moisture to be put back

Ive never tried it but would be keen to try a sheet mask as a start and see how my skin feels - especially since the winter heating has dried out my skin. Good to know about using it on damp skin!!

Actually the tip with this ingredient is to apply it to slightly damp skin (all skin types) and THEN follow it up with a more occlusive moisturiser. This locks it into your skin and stops your skin becoming drier.

I always look for this ingredient in my skincare!

13th August, 2019

Thanks for the tip about damp skin, I am going to try this.

I’ve been using some products with hyaluronic acid and it is incredibly moisturising. I didn’t know that tip about not applying to dry skin though!

12th August, 2019

I've been using hyaluronic acid for the past week now but had no idea about applying it to damp skin - will definitely try it!

11th August, 2019

Oh wow, I didn't realise that about applying to damp skin! Great tip, thank you!

11th August, 2019

ive never tried it, never even heard of it, but it sounds interesting!

A really informative article. Good to learn that it is a substance that is naturally occurring in our own bodies - that makes it feel so much safer to use!

Interesting to learn, too, just why it is best applied to damp skin.

What a pity that it does not have an alternative, gentler name - the very word ACID triggers thought responses like BURN, or DRASTIC

10th August, 2019

Wow! I had heard about it in passing, but had no idea why it was so amazing. I'll be on the lookout for it in the future. :)

I haven't tried Hyaluronic Acid products but now I'm really interested! I have dry skin that definitely needs some plumping and hydrating, very keen to look in to this. Love that Revitalift is sold at the supermarket, makes it very accessible,
