Don’t let the name fool you. Hyaluronic acid isn’t an acid in the way you may think. Unlike salicylic, glycolic, and lactic acids, hyaluronic-acid doesn’t remove dead cells from your skin. It actually adds something absolutely vital to optimal skin health: water. Hyaluronic acid already exists in your skin naturally. (Fun fact: babies are born with very high levels of hyaluronic acid. That’s why their skin is so soft and plump!)
In the summer, heat and sun exposure totally dry us out. This hydration-packed ingredient will save your skin this summer! Hyaluronic acid is a restorative ingredient that will keep your skin moisturized. Moist skin is healthy skin! It not only delivers water to your skin, but it holds the water there for glowing, beautiful skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a lightweight, incredibly gentle, but powerful hydrator for even the most sensitive, blemish-prone, and oily skin types. You want your skin to be able to breathe in the heat. It’s ability to attract moisture to the skin without other ingredients (that clog pores) makes it a perfect summer skincare ingredient.
That power also means a little goes a long way!
