A common main ingredient in several types of facials, face cleaning agents, serums, and moisturizers is hyaluronic acid. While this may sound like an intense ingredient, it is what gives you moisturized glow after a facial treatment.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in the cells of your skin. Its job is to bind water to collagen present in your cells, which is why it is used in skin care. This method of hydrating your cells is what makes your skin appear plumper and have that dewy glow.

Why is Hyaluronic Acid added to skin care products when we naturally produce it?

Over time, the body’s hyaluronic acid levels, as well as collagen levels, reduce. Weather, external elements, and other chemical products can also affect how the body absorbs and uses the water we consume These reasons can make it harder to naturally keep the skin hydrated as we age

By using hyaluronic acid in skin care products and Essential Facials like our Signature Hydrating and Calming Facial or our Antioxidant/Anti-Aging Facial, we can help assist the skin in the process of proper cell hydration.

Hyaluronic acid is also lightweight and watery in nature—no “greasy” or “heavy” feeling after a facial! It can also deeply penetrate cells with ease making it ideal for topical facial applications. It is also safe for all skin types to use because it is a naturally occurring molecule on a cellular level. Most who use facial products with hyaluronic acid do not report any irritation or triggering of rosacea, acne, or allergic reactions. However, as with any product, there is always a slight chance of potential reactions.
