Habit Hack: A Specific Guide To Getting the most out of Hyaluronic Acid
What's all the fuss about Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid is a super fast absorbing active ingredient that absorbs moisture back into your skin. It encourages your skin to hold & retain vital moisturise, which naturally deteriorates as we age.
Hyaluronic Acid is a water-soluble salt that can hold 1000x its weight in water! It helps hydrate the outer layer of the skin to appear hydrated, plump and provides a youthful glow!
- Moisturises the skin
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
- Increases skin/wound repair speed
- Replenishes cell moisture
Best used morning & night after cleansing, tone, using other active ingredients serums and before moisturising. Apply a pea size amount to a damp face to maximise results.
Best Active Ingredient Combinations with Hyaluronic Acid
Retinol + Hyaluronic Acid:
Retinol is great for tightening pores & encouraging the skin to repair & renew itself, but this can cause the skin to flake. Hyaluronic Acid keeps your skin hydrated & protected from unwanted dry skin.
Ceramides + Hyaluronic Acid:
A supercharged combination for treating dehydrated, dry skin
Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid:
A power couple as Hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic in nature, thus increases the absorption of water-based vitamin C serums, resulting in more availability of direct Vitamin C in the epidermis layers.
AHAs & BHAs + Hyaluronic Acid:
Like Retinol, AHAs & BHAs are great for encouraging your skin to repair & renew itself. However, Hyaluronic Acid can restore your skin's moisture & protect it from dryness.
What skin types is Hyaluronic Acid suited for?
It is suited for all skin types, particularly dry and ageing skin. It is a well-known active ingredient with low irritation; however, people with Rosacea or eczema should do a test patch to ensure it doesn't irritate their skin.
