When your skin lacks moisture, it reflects in its texture, color, and appearance. You'll notice telltale signs such as itchiness, dryness, tightness, roughness, or flakiness. Poor hydration also comes with the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles. Feeling defeated because this is your plight? Worry not, I've come bearing good news!
Dehydration (aka poorly hydrated skin) is a condition that can be reversed. And a reliable way of boosting water retention within your skin is by applying products that contain a humectant known as Hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a sweetheart in the beauty industry. Don't let the "acid" in the name deceive you. The hydrating superstar is far from being corrosive. It is safe, cool, and calming on the skin.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our bodies; skin, joints, hair etc. About 95% of the water stored in our bodies is stored as a soft jelly-like fluid (hyaluronic acid). And the fluid is what is responsible for the smooth, bouncy skin we all fancy.
However, due to certain factors such as aging, smoking, drinking, and unhealthy personal care practices, our body loses its ability to retain moisture. And this is where the need for an exogenous source of Hyaluronic acid becomes important.
How can my skin benefit from Hyaluronic acid?
To keep your skin healthy, happy, and luminous, you'll need to add a Hyaluronic acid-infused product into your beauty supply.
These are some reasons why you should be using hyaluronic acid.
Hydrates the skin.
The gel-like substance is like a magnet that attracts water from the environment and channels it to your skin. It has the ability to attract moisture over 1000 times its weight and store it. When you apply it to your damp skin, it'll boost the moisture content of your skin by absorbing water. And you'll be rewarded with plump, supple skin.
Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid does not only hydrate and lubricate, but it also serves as an anti-aging powerhouse. When your skin lacks moisture, it becomes shrunken and visible with wrinkles and fine lines. Topical use of this ingredient draws water into the skin, keeping it plump and full, thereby reducing the visibility of signs of aging.
Promotes wound healing.
Minor cuts, tears, and burns on the skin can be effectively managed by using this humectant. Hyaluronic acid supports wound healing by boosting the production of agents that play crucial roles in cellular repair.
Halts TransEpidermal Water Loss.
When your skin barrier is compromised or damaged, it leads to loss of water from the skin cells. Hyaluronic acid is an exceptional ingredient that stops water from escaping from the skin. It attracts water into the skin cells, traps the water, and seals the cells to prevent Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL).

Hyaluronic acid is suitable for every skin type. But I highly recommend it for dry and dehydrated skin.
