Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient found in so many skincare products nowadays. It’s an ingredient many add to their skincare regime due to its benefits. But what product is best to use? And what does hyaluronic acid do for your skin? This blog will discuss what hyaluronic acid is, how it can benefit you and your skin, and what kind of product you might want to use.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that is found in the skin; it is a natural substance. As we age, we naturally lose both collagen and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps link water and collagen to keep your skin looking plump and youthful. It also assists in overall appearance and healthy skin. But the need to replace this fantastic skin ingredient will become more prominent over time, so absorbing the benefits of hyaluronic acid products is an ever-growing need.
What are the benefits?
As said above, hyaluronic acid keeps your skin looking and feeling youthful, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and contributing to skin hydration and restoration. Nowadays, many products contain this ingredient- which can also be lab-created. But there are so many different products and different opinions about which one is best to use. However, hyaluronic acid can cause dryness to the skin if used alone because it draws moisture from its surroundings. To ensure that this ingredient does its job, consider using a moisturiser on top of your chosen product to lock in moisture and hydrate your skin the way you want it to.
What form of hyaluronic acid should I use?
Serums, toners, moisturisers, gels. You can find this ingredient in just about any skincare product. But which one is best for you? Well, to start with, you will want to look at your skincare routine.
Ask yourself these questions:
• What products do I already use?
• How much time do I put into my daily routine?
• What area of my skin is lacking the most?
Consider adding an additional product to your simple skincare regime. A serum or facial gel that includes hyaluronic acid will help to lock in your skins moisture as well as the additional moisture added.
Using the right products in the right areas is the easiest way to stabilise your skincare routine. The skin around your eyes is thinner and a lot more delicate than the rest of your face. Separating your moisturisers into a general face cream and a different eye cream will do wonders for your skin. But your eyes can become sore and irritable throughout the day due to dehydration along with natural ageing. A hyaluronic acid eye treatment in the comfort of your own home will help keep those wrinkles at bay, as well as quench that thirst for your skin. Radara eye treatment is a four-week at-home kit designed with you in mind. Using naturally derived hyaluronic acid to restore and revitalise the outer eye area, this kit includes a months worth of treatment with fantastic results.
