One of the most crucial things to keep your skin young and glowing is hydration.
As a matter of fact, skin dehydration leads to many different types of reactions depending on your skin type, from rashes and pimples to peeling off. Yet, there is a fine line between hydrated skin and oily skin. We have found that natural based products work best in the average skin type. Our new favorite ingredient is Hyaluronic acid.
We know, the word acid is terrifying and sounds like the last thing you want near your face. Yet, hear us out, Hyaluronic acid (HA for short) is quite the opposite from a laboratory made product, HA is a compound our bodies generate naturally and has many benefits tied with health and beauty. Here is what you need to know about HA.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin, connective tissues, eyes, and joints. It helps give structure to the skin, repairs tissue, and lubricates the joints. The substance works as a magnet for moisture, helping your cells retain as much of it as possible so that your skin feels and appears hydrated, plump and healthy.
However, because of environmental aggressors those levels tend to take a bit of a dip. Apply a topical hyaluronic acid product and it will help pull excessive moist from the deeper layers of the skin to take the top layers of the skin with moisture. If you live in a humid area (Hint: MIAMI) it can also help pull water from the air into your skin.
Since it is a natural hydrating product, it really is suitable for all skin types, Hyaluronic acid increases moisture levels in the s
kin without adding oil.
On its own, HA is not an oily-feeling ingredient. It's pretty slender and light, which is why it is usually incorporated into non-greasy skin care products. Also, with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties it helps protect the skin from the pollution in the air and environment that can cause your pores to fog up and cause skin irritation.
Hyaluronic acid is not that hard to attain, in today’s skincare industry a lot of products have HA in them from cleansers and facial masks to makeup. However, we recommend that to get the most benefits out of HA it is more effective if you use it in moisturizing cream, lotion, or serum, the Hyaluxil-C from Olam Skincare is an excellent choice and it comes with other ingredients that will help fight sunspots and minimize wrinkles.
So, going back to the original question, should YOU be using Hyaluronic acid in your skin routine? The answer is, why wouldn't you? HA is a natural compound that hydrates your skin, because of its natural properties, because of how light it is, it helps to reduce the extra oiliness from your skin. These moisturizing products are a great way to deliver hyaluronic acid to the skin, hydrate, help your skin feel better, look plumper and more youthful.
