What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is the key to plump, smooth, younger looking skin (hello, fountain of youth!). Thankfully, our skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, but when applied topically, hyaluronic acid hydrates and locks in moisture. According to Dr. Maryam Zamani, "hyaluronic acid is critical in maintaining skin hydration."

Hyaluronic acid helps skin appear smoother by promoting healthy, supple skin. Having a smoother skin texture also allows for a great base for makeup. So don't forget to moisturize with some hyaluronic products before your daily makeup routine!

 Hyaluronic acid is actually proven to help prevent the effects of aging on the skin. This magical elixir helps increase skin's resilience and maintain it's tone. Hyaluronic acid won't replace the elastin in your skin, but it can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It can also help firm facial contours, giving the skin a more youthful appearance. 

 

Clarity

A common skincare misconception is that oily, acne prone skin needs to be dried out and stripped of the oils, however it is the opposite. Having proper moisture in your skin also helps keep acne and breakouts in check, by balancing the natural oils in your skin. Hyaluronic acid not only moisturizes the skin, it helps to maintain ideal levels of hydration so that you stay balanced and clear.
