Best Hyaluronic Acid Products | Beauty

I won’t assume everyone knows what hyaluronic acid is or what it does. For those who know, do not hesitate to come back next week. All the others, that’s it. Number one: don’t let the word “acid” terrify you. Yes, it sounds like a rough liquid that should come with a “at your own risk” signage, but it’s nothing like that. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body and its purpose is to retain moisture. However, this function is compromised by factors such as age and environmental stressors. So it needs to be replenished. Hyaluronic Acid contains over 1,000 times its weight in water and so when used topically helps combat those diminished stores, leaving you with plumper, younger looking, super hydrated skin. But not all hyaluronic acids are created equal and choosing is a minefield. But I hope the following will help you. When hyaluronic acid is well formulated with, for example, an active ingredient such as niacinamide, the results are much more impressive. Hyaluronic acid comes in different molecular weights – the most basic is, well, basic. But not bad. The results just take longer to see. A mixed and more complex weighting of hyaluronic acid (like that of NIOD) will, however, give you faster results. Using hyaluronic acid to boost the effect of your other skincare products – instead of using it alone – really boosts its effectiveness. It’s like a side dish that complements your main course. Think of it like that and you won’t be disappointed.
