Although it can seem a bit daunting at first, there are so many benefits of using a hyaluronic acid serum as one of the first steps in your routine. Even if you have sensitive skin, hyaluronic acid, often known as HA, is amazing when it comes to helping your skin retain optimal levels of moisture.
If you’re not already familiar with HA, we’re here to share our knowledge with you!
What Is Hyaluronic Acid Anyway?
Found in sheet masks and facials, hyaluronic acid is one of the many products that can work absolute wonders on all skin types. This naturally occurring sugar molecule is present in our bodies and it binds with collagen and water molecules to lock in moisture.
Much like collagen, hyaluronic acid supplies dwindle over time, but there are ways in which we can combat this. For example, making sure you eat your 5 a day means that your body has an ample supply of antioxidants, which not only keep the skin from getting inflamed, but also help it to retain hyaluronic acid naturally.
Hyaluronic acid is also found in other areas of the body, such as the eyes and joints. Most of the HA in our bodies can be found in our skin, which is why there are so many benefits of using a hyaluronic acid serum twice a day.
Explore The Benefits Of Using A Hyaluronic Acid Serum
As you may have already heard, there are several benefits of using a hyaluronic acid serum. If you’re in your mid-twenties and beyond, adding this ingredient to your skincare routine will make the future you incredibly grateful. This is because HA is perfect for smoothing fine lines, as well as maintaining moisture, which should work to prevent the formation of wrinkles in general.
What’s even better is that it pairs well with the other ingredients in your existing lineup. There’s essentially nothing that doesn’t work well alongside hyaluronic acid, so if your routine already involves retinol (vitamin A), AHAs, BHAs, or vitamin C, you’ve nothing to worry about! You should use your HA serum after cleansing and applying a toner, if you use one. If your skin is damp or you’re still in your steamy post-shower bathroom, this could help seal in even more moisture.
Hyaluronic acid, as I’m sure you already know, is also used in dermal fillers. This non-surgical treatment option is perfect if you want to restore lost volume to your skin and boost your body’s natural supplies of HA. And of course, you can book in for dermal filler treatments at Rocambolesque.
