Back to Basics: What is Hyaluronic Acid?

What is Hyaluronic Acid

Why is there so much hype on Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid or HA is a natural molecule found in your body. HA has the ability to hold water up to a thousand times its weight. This helps your skin retain the moisture and hydration it needs to prevent your skin from dehydration. Hyaluronic Acid also gives your skin a natural and healthy glow while keeping it looking plump.

Hyaluronic Acid can be incorporated into your skincare routine in various ways through cleansers, toners, serums, creams, face masks, etc.


Aromatica Aloe Hy-ffective Cleanser

Aromatica's Aloe Hy-ffective Cleanser is a cruelty-free gel cleanser that calms the skin while providing hydration. It includes 5% Hyaluronic Acid to keep it well-hydrated even after cleansing! 

Using a cleanser is a great way to easily incorporate Hyaluronic Acid into your routine without the hassle. 

Pyunkang Yul Calming Deep Moisture Toner

Pyunkang Yul's Calming Deep Moisture Toner is a low pH toner that includes 5 different Hyaluronic Acids to provide deep hydration. This is a vegan and cruelty-free toner that is suitable for acne prone skin, pore, sebum/oil reduction and skin texture improvement. This toner also includes AHA and PHA to gently exfoliate the skin by dissolving the dead skin cells and impurities as well as Madecassoside and Centella Asiatica for sensitive skin. 

Using Hyaluronic Acid in a toner is a great way to add hydration to your skin as the first step in your skincare routine. 

Sollalla Ultimate Hydrate Hyaluronic Serum

Sollalla's Ultimate Hydrate Hyaluronic Serum provides moisture and helps your skin to maintain elasticity. This serum leaves a silky finish without any stickiness while forming an invisible, natural barrier which helps the skin to stay moisturized all day. This serum includes 9 layers of Hyaluronic Acid to prevent any damages from dryness and also includes 5-Anti-Acne Complex to help calm any irritations. It is also used as an antioxidant which helps to keep skin clear. 

Using Hyaluronic Acid in a serum is the most commonly used way. When using it as a serum, you must always follow up with a moisturizer to lock in the additional moisture into your skin. 

Hanskin Real Complexion Hyaluron Moisture Mask 

Hanskin's Hyaluron Moisture Mask moisturizes, soothes, and creates a natural glow for your skin. It is made up with Hyaluronic Acid to boost hydration and replenish moisture deep into your dry skin. It also revitalizes the skin's outer surface layers instantly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Using a sheet mask with Hyaluronic Acid is not completely necessary but a good way to pamper down and really lock in that extra needed moisture when you or your skin is feeling tired.
