What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a 100% natural humectant found in our bones, cartilages, lips, and skin. It binds our natural collagen to water to achieve that bouncy healthy skin with a natural glow. Pretty interesting, right?

It absorbs water 1000 times its weight providing the optimum hydration level your skin needs.

HA comes in different sizes depending on its molecular weight, each has a specific action. The smaller the molecular weight, the deeper it penetrates the skin resulting in a more prolonged hydration effect. On the other hand, bigger sizes cannot penetrate your skin; they form a film on your skin to prevent transepidermal water loss.

Difference Between Bigger and Smaller Sizes of Hyaluronic Acid

The smaller sizes penetrate deep into the skin to:

  • Provide 24-hour hydration effect
  • Fill in wrinkles and fine lines
  • Repair skin from within
  • Plumps the skin for a more youthful-looking skin

The highest molecular weight sets on top of the skin to:

  • Instantly, but temporarily, hydrates the skin.
  • Lock in gained moisture
  • Reduce transepidermal water loss

Unfortunately, just like collagen, our natural HA content begins to deplete as we age, that’s why we need to introduce an external source of hyaluronic acid to keep the hydration in.
Since hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our bodies, it is suitable for all skin types, conditions, and colors. It’s perfect for sensitive and acne-prone skin, as well. You should consider adding HA to your daily skincare routine after hitting 23.

Make sure to include HA in your daily routine through leave-on products like serums and face moisturizers. HA-rich products slow down the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while hydrating and plumping your skin; giving it a healthy glow.
