Everyone knows that hyaluronic acid is key in keeping our skin well-hydrated, reducing the appearance of fine lines and giving our complexions a glowy look. As a sugar molecule, hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, and is commonly found in our skincare products, from serums and sheet masks to moisturisers.
However, not all skincare with hyaluronic acid are made equal. While hydrating skincare products may be absorbed deep into the skin, their moisture retention may not be long-lasting. When moisture evaporates, skin will feel dry once more, and be prone to environmental stressors. This could explain why your current serums, lotions and moisturisers aren’t giving you the long-term hydrating benefits you desire.
Here, we reveal three surprising facts about hyaluronic acid, plus how to choose the right skincare for consistently plump, healthy and glowing skin.
