Like vitamin c and retinol, hyaluronic acid is another buzzword that’s sweeping across the skincare market and has been in a staple in many skincare routines for a while now. It’s an ingredient that helps improve hydration and retain the water levels in your skin so it stays plump and firm, so where can I find hyaluronic acid for the skin?
Let’s start with what hyaluronic acid does…
It’s a hydrating skincare ingredient with a smaller molecule weight than your normal moisturiser, so it can reach the lower levels of your skin to encourage new healthy and full of moisture skin cells to push through. That’s why you’ll commonly find hyaluronic acid serums or moisturisers infused with hyaluronic acid to get that extra hydration kick for your skin.
You can find hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring molecule in your body and is crucial for our skin’s hydration levels and elasticity as we age.
What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?
- Plumps the skin. By retaining more water through our skin we’re left with a gorgeous plumped, fuller looking complexion that sings with health and youthfulness!
- Tops up and maintains hydration levels. Like a big drink for your skin, hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its own molecule weight in water and helps bind water to skin cells so your skin is always super hydrated
- Helps with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because of the super hydrating properties and water attraction to our skin, fine lines and wrinkles have a softening and smoothing effect on our skin
- Helping our skin barrier and tone. As a result of all the plumping and moisturising effects from hyaluronic acid, our skin barrier is kept healthy and resilient while promoting a smoother and more even skin tone appearance.
Where can I find hyaluronic acid at TEMPLESPA?
Here’s the best part, we’ve taken those hyaluronic acid benefits and turned to the sodium salt from hyaluronic acid called sodium hyaluronate. The difference is sodium hyaluronate has a much lower molecular weight and can easily hydrate the deeper layers of the skin. You might say, so what? This means that when new skin cells work their way through the 28 day cycle to reach the top layers of the skin, they’ve already had lots of hydrating help from sodium hyaluronate to plump and moisturise the skin.
You’ll find sodium hyaluronate in our LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum, our super-charged science-led serum for brighter, clearer and more radiant skin. Combined with encapsulated vitamin C Ascorbyl Glucoside, brightening Alpha Arbutin, orange oil, lemon fruit water and a clever blend of minerals. Each ingredients has brilliant benefits, but working together in synergy they give the skin a glowing boost and promote clearer skin with less hyperpigmentation, age spots and blemishes.
In essence, if you don’t have a hyaluronic acid product in your skincare routine, what are you waiting for? It’s a perfect ingredient for all skin types and works in morning and evening skincare routines, or for whenever your skin is lacking in hydration.
