It seems to be the word that we can't hear enough of if in the beauty world and everyone seems to be using it, but why is it such a hype and does it really work?
Here are some of the questions that many people like ourselves had to ask all about hyaluronic acid.
How often should I use it?
When using hyaluronic acid and your skin is starting to be benefiting from it, you should be applying it twice a day. Once in the morning and once at night. The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is water-based so should be applied before heavy oils and creams, all over the face. This is a very commonly used one by many people.
What does hyaluronic acid do to your skin?
Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. When the skin is protected and hydrated, increased skin cell production can take place, as the skin isn't busy fighting for hydration. This leads to smoother, plumper skin cells.
Does hyaluronic acid really work?
Hyaluronic acid supplements can be safely taken by most people and provide many health benefits. Hyaluronic acid has been well known for its skin benefits, especially alleviating dry skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and speeding up wound healing.
Can you use hyaluronic acid everyday?
Like with any new skincare product, you should start slow with hyaluronic acid, applying it once per day to see how your skin takes to it. If you find your skin is really benefiting from the additional hydration, you should apply it once in the morning and once in the evening.
How long does it take for hyaluronic acid to work?
As a general rule, you'll need to give it four to six weeks before seeing definite results. However, like moisturisers, they also often contain ingredients that let you see some immediate benefit. Our Organic Hyaluronic Acid Serum, as the name suggests, contains hyaluronic acid as the star ingredient.
