As far as trendy ingredients go, the skincare world introduces new ones every year. But the little black dress of skincare components is sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronic acid, as it is commonly known, and for good reason. It provides a multitude of benefits — regardless of your skin type. Plus, this moisture magnet is chock-full of anti-aging, youth-enhancing properties! It’s essentially liquid revitalization in a single ingredient. Here’s what you need to know about this moisture workhorse.
How It Works
Despite its concentrated moisturizing properties, hyaluronic acid is exceptionally lightweight in texture and feels weightless on skin. It’s known for its intensely hydrating properties and improves hydration in every skin type, but it is especially fantastic for those with sensitive or oily skin. Sensitive skin will love being drenched with long-lasting hydration, without having to compromise gentleness. Those with especially active oil glands should look for serums, masks and moisturizers that are oil-free and contain hyaluronic acid. It imparts hydration to the skin without clogging the pores and helps maintain water levels in the epidermis.
Incorporating Hyaluronic Acid Into Your Routine
Our hyaluronic-packed Hydra Boost Finishing Serum is perfect for sealing in your hydrator of choice (even a night cream), for a double dose of moisture immersion. It blends hyaluronic acid at a multi-molecular weight to impart moisture by penetrating all the way to the dermis. Its non-gelatinous texture (rare for this high concentration of hyaluronic acid) keeps it super light and fresh. Marine extracts of seaweed and algae enhance cell turnover, while safeguarding skin from environmental damage. This comfortable serum firms and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, to boot.Try it out for an extra dose of moisture in this transitional weather.
