There is a star beauty ingredient that all of the dermatologists are raving about – hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid plumps, moisturizes and softens fine lines. It can be found in everything from serums to cremes but what exactly is it? Our team of beauty experts break down the basics about hyaluronic acid and how to incorporate it into your daily skincare regimen.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that holds water and helps keep skin hydrated and plump. This molecule can hold a thousand times its weight in water helping skin retain its moisture while preventing it from evaporating into the air. Like collagen and elastin, the level of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies gets low as we age.

That is why it is so important to incorporate hyaluronic acid into your beauty skincare regimen. Your diet significantly impacts the hyaluronic acid production in the body. According to Dr. Meier “Eating foods like fruits and vegetables with a lots of antioxidants protect the skin from inflammation and help skin retain the hyaluronic acid”.

Hyaluronic acid’s ability to draw and retain water helps hydrate and soothe dry skin keeping it moisturized throughout the day. It also gives our skin the dewy and younger look. Due to its ability to interact so well with other beauty actives it can be paired with retinols, vitamins and other acids.

Since our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, it is usually safe to be used all over the skin but picking the right hyaluronic acid product for your skin can be tricky. Our Carelumina beauty experts view hyaluronic acid as the cornerstone product of any beauty skincare routine today.
