Regular use of skincare with hyaluronic acid will help to protect the outer skin layer and enhance moisture content, making it a must-have for dehydrated skin. It also has powerful anti-ageing properties, so it can do wonders to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, as hyaluronic acid is so gentle, it can regularly be used on even the most sensitive skin types, for a softer, smoother and more hydrated look.
To learn about the science behind how it works, see: What is hyaluronic acid?
Paula’s Choice Skincare features a range of products that include hyaluronic acid, so you can choose how to add it to your skincare routine. You can combine it with most other skincare ingredients without any issues and even ‘layer’ multiple hyaluronic acid products to maximise the benefits. So you could start your day with a hyaluronic acid face wash, refresh with a hyaluronic acid toner and then slather on a hyaluronic acid moisturiser afterwards for an extra boost of dewiness.
Eagle-eyed label checkers might also notice that we include sodium hyaluronate in many of these formulations. This is a salt derived from hyaluronic acid that gives most of the same benefits, but is more easily absorbed into the skin, as it has a lower molecular weight.
If you’re wondering when to apply hyaluronic acid in a skincare routine, it’s most effective when smoothed onto slightly damp skin. It’s a ‘humectant’ that draws moisture to the epidermis, either from the air if it is humid, or from the underlying dermis in dry conditions. So if you use it on dry skin in a dry environment, it actually can draw water from your skin and make it less hydrated.
For best results, use a hyaluronic acid serum on slightly damp skin after cleansing, but before applying moisturiser, sunscreen or base make-up. Or for a hyaluronic acid moisturiser, simply use it as you would any other moisturiser: after cleansing and toning, but before applying sunscreen.
Salicylic acid, also known as BHA is a gentle exfoliating ingredient that unclogs pores and can help to prevent breakouts and blackheads. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits, which means it can work to calm skin and minimise redness. Skin that is prone to acne or rosacea can benefit from using both BHA and hyaluronic acid. The BHA will gently polish and prep, ready for the plumping and hydrating benefits of hyaluronic acid, for smoother, calmer, healthier-looking skin.
