Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for skin

We live in a fast-paced world, demanding a balance between personal, professional and social life. Your skincare routine can take a backseat with the hustle and bustle of a busy schedule. Now that tables have turned and work from home culture has become the new normal, it perhaps is a tad bit easier to look after your skin. Your wellbeing is in your hands and Kiehl’s is at every step to guide you. At Kiehl's, we provide top-notch skin care products that you will love!

Today, let's talk about one such element that enhances your skin's quality to give you a healthy-glowing skin- Hyaluronic Acid.

Hyaluronic Acid- It isn’t as scary as it probably sounds. And applying this acid on our skin does wonders to it! Hyaluronic Acid is a gel-like substance that consists of a unique ability to retain moisture. In fact, our bodies actually produce it naturally to help retain moisture. Hyaluronic Acid production becomes lesser and lesser as we age. Our skin starts to lose its elasticity, which causes deep-set wrinkles. So now you know how important it is to maintain the balance of this element for your skin.

What does Hyaluronic Acid do to your face?

The best feature of Hyaluronic Acid is that it can hold over 1000 times its weight in water. You would be stunned to know what it does to your face. It acts as a hydrating agent for your skin as it binds the water to skin cells that leads to rejuvenating moisture. This element does not need a companion to bring out its best qualities; as it is a self-sufficient ingredient.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid on your skin are stated below:

  • Humectant: It acts as a humectant that you find in a lot of skin care products. It draws in moisture and holds it after collection. Kiehl’s facial serums with Hyaluronic Acid are a must-have in your skincare collection.
  • Increased Resilience: The skin gains the ability to defend itself against environmental age-factors and pollutants. It helps improve your skin's barrier function to achieve healthier skin. It helps getting rid of signs of aging, spontaneous blemishes and uncomfortable dryness. Cleansing and moisturizing help with plumper skin.

    One of Kiehl's anti-aging eye serum is Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum makes your eyes look shiny, lifted, and less-puffy. It helps reduce dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines as it is infused with Hyaluronic Acid.

  • Lipid Barrier Enhancement: It is essential to have products that help protect the body from the outside. The UV rays and several other elements that are present in the environment are harmful to the skin. To recover from the damage caused, products with Hyaluronic Acid play a crucial role in healing the skin.
  • Tight Skin and Smooth Texture: We try to do our best to avoid saggy skin. The elastin in the skin breaks down as the skin loses its bounceback as we age. The lack of Hyaluronic Acid causes this scenario; it does not replace the elastin. Instead, it helps with the tightening of the skin. It firms facial contours for a more youthful appearance. It enhances the skin and smoothens the texture of the skin. Give a shot to Anti-Aging moisturizer to help you maintain youthfulness.
  • Pigmentation: One of the many best Hyaluronic Acid qualities is that it treats pigmentation issues and reduces and prevents age spots. Always protect your skin by wearing SPF on a daily basis to maintain healthy skin.

What percentage of Hyaluronic Acid is good for the skin?

When we talk about Hyaluronic Acid, there are nearly negligible side effects. It plays great with other ingredients; hence you find it in a ton of products. Dermatologists recommend that using 1-2% percentage of Hyaluronic Acid is ideal as it is the industry standard. Higher the percentage of this ingredient -the higher the skin irritation.

Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to heal wounds at a faster pace by regulating inflammation levels. It is naturally present in our skin, although the concentration increases in case of damage. Applying it to skin wounds reduces the size of injuries and decreases pain. It consists of antibacterial properties, helping reduce the risk of infection.

You must try out Anti-Aging Moisturizer from the house of Kiehl’s; their Super Multi-Corrective Cream. It is infused with Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid, Jasmonic Acid, Beech Tree Extract, and more. These elements help lift the skin, smoothens the skin, give firms, and retextures and moisturize for younger-looking skin. The cream is best suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Do you need a moisturizer after Hyaluronic Acid?

Generally, Hyaluronic Acid is known to be safe for all skin types; however, it is exceptionally beneficial for dry skin. Dry skin needs moisturization, more than any other skin type. The most common forms of Hyaluronic Acid are moisturizers and serums. Once you start using serums that are Hyaluronic Acid induced, your routine will be a little different.

After cleansing the skin, while it's still damp, apply the serum with Hyaluronic Acid followed by a moisturizer to seal in the hydration. Thankfully, it works pretty well with vitamin C. Vitamin C is infused in several products; one of them being Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, known to boost radiance, diminish fine lines, pores, and wrinkles, and helps firm skin. It is an anti-wrinkle Vitamin C serum infused with 12.5% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. This water-free concentrate is a Kiehl's customer favourite.

It provides plumper and more hydrated skin within a few minutes of application. It is the simplest way to keep your skin hydrated. However, if you are looking to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other aging signs, Hyaluronic Acid products are your way to go!
