Choose a Hyaluronic Acid Serum that Works

If you’re in the skincare and beauty industry you get a lot of questions about the ingredients that are supposed to improve your skin. Especially when it comes to battling the signs of ageing and of course, dry skin problems. Hyaluronic acid serums are on everyone’s must-have list as well as in your favorite brand’s online shops.

What is HA (Hyaluronic Acid) anyway and why is it the “HOT” ingredient of the skincare industry?

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful moisture retention substance able to hold a thousand times its weight in water. It’s also a natural component in different areas of our bodies, including the skin. But when we age, the production of substances that protects the skin’s natural moisture and elasticity decreases. And that includes hyaluronic acid and collagen, which often lead to a considerable lack of hydration and premature ageing.

Is a Hyaluronic Acid Serum Good for Your Face?

It depends. If you find the right one for dehydrated skin, you’re on the right track. And since Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance on our skin, you’d want to incorporate it into your routine with topical anti-ageing skincare products. If you want to get the best out of a Hyaluronic Acid product, our hyaluronic acid serum contains a 100% hydration formula with 3 molecules of hyaluronic acid while mainstream counterparts provide only under 10%. Plus, it’s formulated with a large molecular weight to lock in moisture. You get deep hydration plus plumpness, tighter pores, and more.

Why You Should Start Using a Hyaluronic Acid Serum

What is it about hyaluronic acid that makes it the most popular ingredient in the global skincare market? Well, it has been getting a lot of (warranted) attention since people learned that it’s your “main character” in skincare. Many of us also swear by its amazing results. Aside from that, it’s also a great anti-ageing solution, especially for women who are already showing lines and wrinkles on their lovely faces.

Tips for Finding the Best Hyaluronic Acid Product

If you’re reaching a new level of confusion about which hyaluronic acid product to use, you can first look at serums. However, you can also find HA in all sorts of skincare products such as gel moisturisers and facial creams.

We recommend using a serum that has a high concentration of all three molecular weights of hyaluronic acid. 

Pay Attention to Acid Concentration

There are products containing the acid—or its salt form, sodium hyaluronate as the main ingredient. They include a higher acid concentration because their main aim is to provide hydration and improve ageing support. 

Some hyaluronic acid serums have 0.25% -1.75% only, so check out what concentration your serum has, you don’t want to be chasing the perfect hyaluronic serum only to discover the main ingredient is not hyaluronic acid. 

Check  Molecular Weight

  • Lower-weight – molecules work deep into the skin, addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and skin elasticity which is great for those whose primary concern is premature skin ageingThese molecules help create healthy, younger skin in the long term. 
  • Medium-weight molecules help lock in moisture slightly below the skin’s barrier and also have long-term results.
  • Higher-weight molecules – can only stay on the skin’s surface but will leave it looking hydrated, and plumper, and improve the outer layer. It will retain moisture that it already had in the short term, creating a more aesthetic effect. 

For best results, add your hyaluronic acid serum twice a day as the last step in your skincare routine. Then, use the best moisturiser for dry skin or a lightweight hydration cream.

Our Hydracure Hydractive 50 ml cream would be a great choice for your holy grail serum since it also contains hyaluronic acid. Not only that but it’s also formulated with 3 different molecular weights to increase hydration, protect the skin’s barrier, and restore hydration.
