If You’re Not dropping acid for the sake of soft, plump and deeply hydrated skin, you will be soon. The acid we’re referring to, of course, is skincare superstar hyaluronic acid — and we have good reason to be obsessed.
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, viscous substance that is naturally produced by our bodies but becomes less abundant over time. Its innate presence means it is absorbed easily when applied topically or taken as a supplement. This amazing molecule can hold over 1,000 times its weight in moisture — one gram can old up to six liters of water! As a humectant it helps draw in moisture from its surroundings, meaning it’s actively effective long after it soaks into your skin (which in our experience is basically instant).
Hyaluronic acid soaks in easily, hydrates deeply and helps improve the look of fine lines, all without weighing down skin or causing it to react — what more would we want? Trendy beauty ingredients come and go, but our hyaluronic acid obsession is here to stay. KIock off your new obsession with our fave hyaluronic acid products…
