Hyaluronic acid is good for dry skin because it’s a humectant, meaning it soaks up and holds onto moisture, helping the skin stay hydrated and plump. In fact, the body naturally produces this clear substance to lubricate and moisten the skin, eyes, and connective tissues.
It’s made by our bodies for our bodies—no wonder it’s also used in a variety of skincare products like serums, injections, and masks!
What Are the Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is popular in the beauty industry, and for a good reason. This powerful ingredient offers a range of benefits for the skin, including:
- Retaining Moisture – Hyaluronic acid molecules bond with and hold onto water molecules in the skin. It’s so powerful, it can attract and hold onto moisture 1000x its weight! This prevents water molecules from evaporating and helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump.
- Reducing the Appearance of Wrinkles – Dryness is also one of the leading causes of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid replenishes lost moisture and helps to minimize dry skin. Not only that, but it enhances your skin’s firmness and elasticity—making your skin appear more youthful and vibrant.
Hyaluronic Acid Side Effects
For most people, hyaluronic acid is safe and non-irritating. It’s recommended for use on all skin types.
However, applying hyaluronic acid to a very dry face without any serum, mask, or moisturizer can draw water from deeper skin levels, leaving skin drier than before. That said, always use hyaluronic acid or products containing hyaluronic acid with a moisturizing agent or ingredient.
How to Use Hyaluronic Acid in Your Skincare Routine
As noted above, since hyaluronic acid attracts and holds onto moisture rather than producing its own, it has to be used in conjunction with a moisturizer to be effective.
The best way to use it is in a hydrating collagen face mask. This way, the hyaluronic acid will bring that moisture to the skin’s surface, lock it in place, and keep the skin hydrated throughout the day. This is the perfect skincare secret—you won’t have to worry about mixing and matching products, because everything you need is already in the mask.
