What About Hyaluronic Acid?

Unlocking the Secrets of Hyaluronic Acid

Many patients lift an eyebrow when I talk about hyaluronic acid. "You’re putting acid on my skin?!" they ask with a mix of curiosity and concern. It may sound intimidating, but hyaluronic acid is actually a gentle and beneficial substance that naturally occurs in our bodies. Known for its incredible ability to retain moisture, it plays a crucial role in keeping our skin hydrated, plump, and youthful. In this blog post, we’ll demystify hyaluronic acid, explaining what it is, how it works, and why it should be a staple in your skincare routine. Whether you're new to skincare or looking to enhance your regimen, understanding the benefits of hyaluronic acid can transform your approach to achieving healthy, radiant skin.

Which Type of Products Have Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is added to many products but also used as one of the main ingredients in Hydrators. It is often combined with antioxidants such as Vitamin A, C, and E, Camelia Sinesis (green tea), and resveratrol (the active ingredient in red wine). These hydrators are to be used before any other treatments or moisturizers– they most come in gel or serum form. Some have several forms of hyaluronic acid for optimum results. Cosmetic fillers are mainly hyaluronic acid as well.

A Hydrator?! What’s the Difference Between a Hydrator and a Moisturizer?

To keep it simple: a hydrator adds water, a moisturizer seals to keep water in.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Hydration is essential for healthy, beautiful plump skin. Hyaluronic acid provides short (immediate, refreshed appearance) and long-lasting hydration (keeps skin uniformly hydrated). As a result of plump and hydrated skin, the skin will also appear to have a smoother texture. Make-up application is easier and gives the flawless look we are all looking for. For best results, apply a hydrator to damp skin.
