The Guide To Hyaluronic Acid: When and How to use Hyaluronic Acid Serums 

Hyaluronic acid has become one of the top leading ingredients in the skincare market recently with so many products containing this magical ingredient from cleansers, essences, serums, creams, and more, boasting extreme benefits such as infusing moisture, dissolving wrinkles and the like, giving you that to-die-for glow! But are you sure you are using this magical ingredient correctly? Let's hop in and find out!

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

First off, what exactly is Hyaluronic acid? According to a Harvard Health Blog on, The hype on hyaluronic acid, Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, or a substance that retains moisture, that has the capability of binding over one thousand times its weight in water and is naturally found in many areas of the human body, including the skin, eyes, and synovial fluid of the joints. As we age, our body's ability to produce key substances in the skin, including Hyaluronic acid and collagen, decreases, resulting in the loss of volume, elasticity and hydration in the skin.

To combat this, many skincare brands implement Hyaluronic acid into their formulas, primarily made in a lab through a process called bio-fermentation. Hyaluronic acid is a key ingredient in many skincare products that not only penetrates the skin with intense hydration, but also promote wound healing and encourages elasticity, lowering the risk of premature aging! It also has anti-inflammatory properties that helps to combat against redness, strengthening the skin barrier to defend against environmental aggressors such as ultraviolet rays, tobacco smoke, and harsh weather conditions!

How to correctly use Hyaluronic Acid Serums

Are you using this magical ingredient correctly? After washing your face with a cleanser and prepping your face with a toner, apply a couple drops of Hyaluronic acid serum to your damp face and massage it into your skin until fully absorbed before you continue with the rest of your skincare regimen! The key is to apply the Hyaluronic acid serum on damp skin in order for it to work! Hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet so it draws moisture to itself, helping bind it to your skin and prevent moisture loss. If you apply hyaluronic acid on dry skin, it can actually have an opposite effect by drawing moisture from its nearest source, your skin, leaving your skin more dehydrated!
