What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that is naturally found in your body, with most of it in your skin. Known to hold 1000 times its molecular weight in water, hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain its moisture and stay hydrated and plump. It also keeps all your tissues and joints well lubricated. Using hyaluronic acid products in your 20s and 30s ensures your skin’s elasticity and bounce are intact. Well-hydrated skin also has fewer wrinkles and fine lines.
Step 1 – Cleanser
Before layering multiple products, it is important for you to have a clean canvas. Start your routine by cleansing your face with a facewash infused with hyaluronic acid. Using a face cleanser ensures your skin is squeaky clean and is ready to absorb the goodness of HA acid. Additionally, a facewash with hyaluronic acid, like the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Cleanser, will make sure your skin isn’t stripped of its natural hydration.
Step 2 – Serum
While applying products, it is advisable to apply products from the thinnest to the thickest consistency. This helps your skin reap maximum benefits from each product. As the second step of your routine, using a HA acid serum works like a miracle. Hyaluronic acid serum benefits the skin by penetrating deep into your skin and giving it intense hydration. You can also pair your hyaluronic acid serums with other actives like retinol, vitamin C, niacinamide, salicylic acid and more. This ensures your skin retains hydration without drying out. One of the best hyaluronic acid serums is the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5 % Hyaluronic Acid Serum. It has a lightweight texture that leaves the skin intensely hydrated and plump. The formula for this serum is alcohol-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free which helps it deliver the hyaluronic acid serum benefits to all skin types.
Step 3 – Moisturizer
Layering your skin with hydrating products infused with HA acid helps it stay moisturised throughout the day. Create a moisture sandwich by using a hyaluronic acid moisturizer or day cream as the third step. For the perfect amount of hydration, you can opt for the L’oréal Paris Reviatlift Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Day Cream. It hydrates and plumps your skin for visibly smooth and radiant skin.
Practising these three steps religiously can work wonders for your skin! However, if you want to go the extra mile to reap more HA acid benefits here is what you can also do.
- Along with your face, you can also deliver hyaluronic acid serum benefits to the skin of your body. Use a hyaluronic acid body lotion to plump and nourish your skin deeply and give it the moisturization it needs.
- For days when you want to give your skin an instant boost of HA acid, you can opt for the L’oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Fresh Mix Serum Sheet Mask. This revolutionary tissue sheet mask has a separate chamber with the best hyaluronic acid serum for the skin. It gives your skin a burst of hydration and radiance in just 15 minutes!
- If you are looking to further benefit from the goodness of hyaluronic acid, you can also choose to intake supplements. Hyaluronic acid supplements benefit the skin by alleviating dry skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and speeding up wound healing. However, we encourage you to consult a professional first. Don't forget that, like any food supplement, these will only be beneficial if we also put in a little effort, and take them alongside a healthy lifestyle and by adding superfoods that boost hyaluronic acid to your diet!
- For a few years now, injections of hyaluronic acid have become more accessible. These intradermal injections have an incredible effect on frown lines, those on your forehead, crow's feet, and the smile lines around your mouth and near your nose. In 30 short minutes, and after a few small pricks in your skin, only a few millimetres deep, all the lines are filled, your skin is smoother and the contours of your face appear firmer for 6 to 9 months.
There are multiple ways to reap the benefits of hyaluronic acid. You can use a hyaluronic acid moisturizer, serum or mask the choice is yours. Choose from the wide range of hyaluronic acid products by L’oréal Paris to get dreamy and hydrated skin.
