I know this is not the sexiest subject, but you’ll know what your skin needs and what you should look for in new products. Of course, there are a lot of ingredients in the skincare world, so I will only discuss the most important ones. During this series about skincare, I will refer to these ingredients or even bring up some new ones. I promise after this explanation, we will dive into the skincare routine itself.
Let’s start with the one that scared me for the longest time. It sounds so complicated, but it is anything but. I can give you a complicated, fancy-ass explanation, but it basically is a super-hydrator. Hyaluronic acid is actually something we produce naturally, it is a water-holding molecule. As we age, we lose this in our skin. So, products with HA retain moisture to hydrate and plump the skin.
Furthermore, it promotes collagen production, fights free radicals, and maintains our skin elasticity. As well as having anti-inflammatory properties to speed up wound healing. This ingredient can benefit literally everyone. And unlike most acids, it won’t cause irritation to sensitive skin types. This product can be used in your morning as well as your evening routine.
