This Is What Hyaluronic Acid Does…

Joanna Fleming

Hyaluronic Acid isn’t a new concept in skincare, although you may have only just started hearing about it. In fact, HA is a naturally-occurring substance found in our bodies already, but when it’s scientifically formulated into skincare for topical use, Hyaluronic Acid is the ultimate anti-ageing, skin hydrating booster.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid:

  • Its moisture-binding properties attract and store moisture in the skin
  • HA restores plumpness and hydration, which diminishes during the ageing process
  • Leaves skin soft, smooth and hydrated, making the skin look more radiant
  • Improves the appearance of fine lines by plumping the skin
  • Hydrates and calms even redness-prone and congested skin types


Can I use it?

The best thing about this ingredient? It’s suitable to use even on oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin. It’s lightweight formulation absorbs immediately, nourishing the skin as soon as it’s applied.

★★★★★ Amazing product

“This is the first review I have done on any product ever. I am 39yrs old with dry/dehydrated skin and have tried a lot of products over the years that have claimed to do what this does. My skin feels instantly hydrated after this, it absorbs quickly with no oily residue. I absolutely love it.”

“This product is amazing. I have Oily Combo skin that is dehydrated. I used it for the first time at night followed by The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors lotion and woke up the next morning with skin like a baby’s bottom! So soft and PLUMP that lasts all day.”

★★★★★ SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel

“This thin gel serum applies beautifully and immediately sinks into the skin leaving a semi-matte finish. Does not clog pores and can be used under other products in a skincare routine. What I really loved about it was that it calmed and rested my skin – low-level redness and moderate sensitivity was assisted and skin tone overall looked more even and simply healthy.”
