Hyaluronic Acid: The hydrating active ingredient

Hyaluronic Acid The hydrating active ingredient

We've all heard of hyaluronic acid being injected as a filler but did you know that it's naturally present in our skin?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring major component of the dermis that hydrates the skin to make it look youthful and radiant. Hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge that can retain up to 1000x its weight in water, hence its ability to hydrate our skin. This also means it works wonders on dry and sensitive skin.

By hydrating our skin, we help its cells to regenerate and restore its hydrolipidic balance. Skin that lacks water can look blotchy and feel tight or itchy; hyaluronic acid makes such skin supple. It's due to a higher content of hyaluronic acid that younger skin tends to be so naturally plump and glowing.

Sadly, our natural hyaluronic acid levels drop with age. Our skin becomes drier, duller, and more fragile. This is where skincare products containing hyaluronic acid come into play. We can use these to moisturise our skin to look gorgeously plump. An anti-ageing powerhouse, hyaluronic acid now holds a place of pride in our bathrooms!

The L’Oréal Paris Skincare Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum instantly hydrates your skin and makes it visibly plumped. It even negates wrinkles to reveal glowing, even-toned skin.

This Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum from L’Oréal Paris returns a youthful/bouncy feeling to the skin and makes it firmer and more elastic. It moisturises dry skin too. You can even use it on your face, eyes, and neck before makeup for a boost of hydration. It’s suitable for all skin types, including dry, oily, combination, sensitive, and mature skin.
