The benefits of using a Hyaluronic acid serum in a skincare routine are no longer the beauty world’s best-kept secret. For the past couple of years now, many have seen Hyaluronic Acid, HA, or Sodium Hyaluronate mentioned on the list of ingredients of major skincare lines and products. So I’d like to explain its popularity and why it’s a favourite among many skincare lines, including mine!
Here are my 6 top reasons why I love using it and therefore recommend that you begin to use it as well:
1. It Works Wonderfully on Every Skin Type
Most skin care ‘actives’ work only for a particular skin type. You can’t just use them because it sounds good, or they could cause significant damage to your skin. However, using any product with hyaluronic acid as its primary component works wonderfully on just about any skin type, including dry, sensitive, oily and acne prone. In fact, harsh actives such as retinoids that can cause mild irritation and peeling of the skin can be soothed with hyaluronic acid serums. Therefore, lots of times HA products are used in combination with harsher actives.
Even those with a sensitive skin type can easily use products with Hyaluronic acid in them. So, go grab your favourite Rain Natural Skincare Moisture Enhancing Hydra Gel or Nourishing Day Cream, today.
2. It is a Naturally Occurring Element within Our Skin Cells
Human skin cells naturally produce hyaluronic acid. It is a huge component, not only of the skin but in cartilages and joints, along with other connective tissues. Although your skin produces HA, this production decreases as we age. As early as your 30s you may want to begin to supplement with the use of HA to compensate for the slower production of hyaluronic acid in the skin.
This is another significant reason why you should begin using the best facial serums and moisturizers that contain the goodness of hyaluronic acid beginning in your 20s. It is definitely budget-friendly and helps in the process of anti-aging. So, try to use it often, if possible daily, I use mine every morning.
3. It Draws in Plenty of Moisture
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, or water magnet – meaning it draws in water from the environment, thereby plumping up the skin with excess moisture.
It can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. It’s a superior moisturizer and applied topically it will increase hydration and improves elasticity. Hyaluronic acid may also repair collagen, improve the appearance of scars, and reverse free radical damage; it’s a win-win.
4. It Helps the Healing of Wounds
In a study of Hyaluronic Acid and its effects on wound healing, it was found that using Hyaluronic acid serum on wounds helps heal them two times faster.
Therefore, not only is it great for dry or aging skin, but it’s also perfect for acne-prone skin. All you need to do is add hyaluronic acid serum to your daily skincare routine. Just a small amount goes a long way in healing acne scars.
5. It Helps With the Appearance of Aging Skin
Research that tested the contents of the skin that contains naturally occurring Hyaluronic acid in different age groups found that by the age of 60, the presence of hyaluronic acid in the skin had nearly disappeared, WOW!
This loss of the presence of HA in the skin commonly triggers many signs of aging, including loss of moisture in the skin. The best way to compensate for this loss and slow the signs of aging is by using products that work against it, such as vitamin c and hyaluronic acid. My Nourishing Day Cream contains both hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C.
6. It Is Super Easy to Use
There is nothing more annoying than a skincare routine that is too much work. When skincare routines and products take up too much time or effort, it takes a toll on how regularly we actually use them. The best way to incorporate a skincare routine is to find products that are easy to use and easily available. Using natural skincare products such as my Rain Natural Skincare line of products – such as gentle cleansers, moisturizers, eye cream, facial oils, and hyaluronic acid serum, are just a few perfect examples of my easy-to-use, available products.
All of these products work towards achieving a visibly brighter complexion and glowy skin, calming the moisture barrier, and getting you ready for your best day and night!
So there are my 6 reasons why I love hyaluronic acid-based skincare products, and why I also recommend you add them to your skincare routine too.
