Hyaluronic acid has gained mass popularity due to its hydrating benefits to the skin, as it can store around 1000 times its weight in water. It’s a well trusted ingredient that may even be found in some skincare products you’re already using, and this is the correct way to use HA.
HA is a humectant substance, which means you must add other hydration or water-infused products. After you cleanse and tone your face, add the HA while your skin is slightly damp, so the HA serum will absorb and retain moisture from the previous products.
HA can be used twice a day along with other issue-specific ingredients, like vitamin C. Remember to put hyaluronic acid on top of damp skin, then finish off your routine with any other products like moisturizers and sunscreen.
