As we go into the peak summer season it's important to keep your skin highly hydrated so this week we're talking about the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid - and it's not as scary as it sounds - promise!
It's the ACID bit in Hyaluronic Acid that can scare you but don't worry, in skincare it's perfectly safe and here's why. Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful ingredient that retains up to 1,000 times its weight in water from moisture in the air and also helps to maintain moisture s skin's barrier is strengthened. The result? Intensely hydrated skin helps to target signs of ageing, plumps the complexion, creates a natural and healthy glow, minimises pores and evens out the skintone. It's a wonder ingredient that works all year round to keep hydration levels at its optimum.
The best bit...Hyaluronic Acid is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Here's a rundown of my favourite Hyaluronic Acid moisturisers and serums and why...
Infused with 30% Hyaluronic Acid Complex, this hydrating hero is a fir favourite. Provides up to 72 hours of hydration and combines the power of cermaides and anti-oxidant rich Elderberry - all the goodness your skin needs to make it look healthier, radiant, supple and smooth.
With the power of extra-pure hyaluronic acid to intensely replenish the skin, HYDRA-FILLER® combines two effective hyaluronic acids (high molecular weight and micro-fragmented) for a micro-filler effect and visible hydration. This collagen-enriched, gel-balm formula helps to target wrinkles and cracks in the dermis, restoring the skin's role as a barrier, minimising dehydration throughout the day.
In addition to Vitamin C, this anti-ageing serum now includes Hyaluronic Acid. The formula helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while helping to improve the feel of skins texture. Skin looks radiant and feels smoother.
This face serum maximizes the power of skin's natural nighttime renewal with our exclusive ChronoluxCB™ Technology. Also includes anti-oxidants, plus Hyaluronic Acid, nature’s “moisture magnet,” to help lock in moisture.
