WORDS BY MARCIA KILGORE
Hyaluronic Acid: The Secret To Glowier, Dewier SkinIt’s the most marvellous moisture magnet...
There’s a reason that Hyaluronic Acid has become a household word – at least under the roof of any self-respecting serious skincare enthusiast. It delivers an instant hydration hit, helps barrier-repairing function, protects your skin against inflammation (which BTW, experts now say is responsible for aging), is compatible with all skin types, is non-comedogenic and makes your face look plumper, dewier and younger.
Hyaluronic Acid is a Glycosaminoglycan, which is found naturally in the human body and as a structural component of the skin. It’s also produced synthetically to give lacking skin a boost! Our naturally-occurring levels decrease as we get older, so boosting levels from the outside absolutely helps!
Hyaluronic Acid can be found in everything from serums to creams to capsules to sheet masks (and in injectables like Restylane, or Juvederm, which we obviously don’t have here at the PIE). And it’s powerful – so you probably don’t need it in more than one layer of your morning or evening routine.
