Moisturizing and replenishing, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that should be a part of everybody’s skincare regimen. From its anti-aging properties to its abilities to strengthen and rebuild the unique microbiome on your skin, you’ll start to see the benefits of hyaluronic acid almost instantly.
Read on to find out more about hyaluronic acid, including what it is, what it does for your skin and how to incorporate it into your skincare regimen.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your eyes, skin and joints, but it can also be made in a lab and added into skincare products.
First and foremost, it’s a glycosaminoglycan (or GAG), which is a substance that works to constantly renew the skin, helping to keep your skin looking and feeling youthful.
Hyaluronic helps to strengthen and rebuild the skin’s cells when they break down, and a humectant, meaning that it draws moisture from its surroundings. This helps to boost your skin’s hydration and smooth wrinkles and fine lines.
What does hyaluronic acid do for your skin?
One of the best qualities of hyaluronic acid is its ability to attract and hold onto moisture—up to 1000 times its own weight to be precise! Hyaluronic acid has the ability to attract water to your skin, which it then locks in like a sponge. Regular hyaluronic acid usage can leave your skin hydrated and replenished, revitalizing the skin’s outer surface layers so your skin feels softer and smoother.
With age, your natural hyaluronic acid levels decline by two percent each year, leaving you with more pronounced wrinkles. Environmental damage adds to this loss, so making use of an SPF is essential for protecting your skin's natural HA content.
RoC<sup>®</sup>’s Hyaluronic Acid formulas work by penetrating the upper levels of the skin, drawing moisture from within to plump up skin and help fill wrinkles. With continued use, your skin will have a smoother, firmer and more youthful appearance. In fact, with just four weeks’ use of our hydrate + plump serum capsules, 91% of our customers had firmer-looking skin.
How to use hyaluronic acid
From serums and moisturizers to oral supplements and injectables, hyaluronic acid comes in many forms. You can find hyaluronic acid in many different skincare products, from eye creams to moisturizers —and even those with sensitive skin are able to use products containing hyaluronic acid. Unlike other hyaluronic acid products, our products have been proven to replenish the hyaluronic acid that your skin loses as it ages. Here’s the best way to incorporate it into your skincare regimen:
