Ever Wanted To Bathe In Hyaluronic Acid? Now You Can

Over the past year, I’ve been putting in some serious hard work into my skin. Well, the skin on my face. Double cleanse, no less than three serums, moisturiser, SPF, masks, peels… You name it, I’ve put it on my face. 

One day, while admiring how far my skin had come in just over a year, I looked down at my legs and gasped in horror. They were so dry and cracked that I basically looked like I was wearing snakeskin leggings. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration, but you get the gist. 

All this time and effort goes into our skincare routines, and yet, we so easily forget that we have skin all over our bodies. Yes, even our scalps! It was time to investigate a whole body skincare routine. Enter The Chemistry Brand.

Wait, What's The Chemistry Brand?

The Chemistry Brand is from the same company that brought you The Ordinary. I like to think of it like The Ordinary, but for your whole body. They even have a “Retin-Oil” (yep, that’s vitamin A for your body). I first discovered their Big Tub of Hyaluronic Acid in my mad rush to cure my scaly legs before a big event - I even purchased it full-price before we started stocking it at Adore Beauty (it's only $50 - a bargain in my opinion for such a huge bottle).

Whenever the skin on my face feels dry and tight, I always go straight for a Hyaluronic Acid serum. I figured that the same logic could surely be applied to my whole body. 

Within two days, my legs were smoother and softer than they’d ever been. The snake-like scales were completely gone. It was a miracle! Well, not really. Hyaluronic Acid is THE hero skincare ingredient when it comes to dehydrated skin.

Why Is Hyaluronic Acid So Good For Dry Skin?

When I first read the phrase “Hyaluronic Acid”, I just assumed it was an exfoliant due to the word “acid”, which shows how little I knew about skincare ingredients. It’s quite the opposite, actually. 

It’s one of the best natural skin care ingredients for hydration because of its ability to retain water within the skin while boosting collagen levels. As you age, your skin becomes unable to maintain hydration, which causes loss of firmness and elasticity, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen production in the skin also slows down which speeds up signs of premature aging. 

Hyaluronic Acid not only delivers an instant burst of moisture but will help to lock in existing hydration from day to night and support collagen production. You can also read all about the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid in our ultimate guide.
