What You’ll See On The Ingredient List Sodium Hyaluronate
Why Your Skin Needs It Hyaluronic acid benefits the skin as this powerful humectant floods your skin with hydration and helps strengthen your skin’s natural moisture barrier. As we age, supplies of hyaluronic acid diminish. Replenishing your skin’s reservoir helps maintain a plump, dewy, and healthy condition.
The Clinique Expertise Best-loved Moisture Surge™ 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator features three different types of hyaluronic acid to penetrate multiple layers of your skin. Clinical testing proves a hyaluronic acid serum works non-stop for 72 hours—even after you wash your face.
What Our Clinique Derm Says “Hyaluronic acid is a must-have, regardless of your skin type,” says Dr. Michelle Henry, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City. “It plumps up your skin with hydration and makes fine lines and wrinkles appear less obvious.”
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that is able to absorb 1000 times its weight in water. Although this popular ingredient is naturally found in the human body, as you age, production starts declining and consequently, so does your skin’s natural plumpness and hydration. That’s why using hyaluronic acid skincare products can be so beneficial, regardless of your skin type.
Hyaluronic acid is most commonly known for its hydrating properties and rightly so, as it is able to increase the moisture content of your skin and boost your natural moisture barrier to prevent common issues associated with skin dehydration, from roughness and flakiness to redness and inflammation.
But that’s not all. Other benefits of hyaluronic acid include its ability to improve skin elasticity to keep ageing signs at bay and minimise pigmentation issues by accelerating cell turnover.
Whether we’re talking about moisturisers, serums or even makeup, with the right products in your skincare kit, it’s easy to start using hyaluronic acid for skin.
Wondering when to use hyaluronic acid? We suggest doing so right after cleansing your face, so your skin can better absorb it.
As if there weren’t enough already, another benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it pairs well with virtually any other skincare ingredient. Hyaluronic acid and retinol, for example, is a match made in heaven, as the first leaves the skin hydrated, enhancing the benefits of the latter. You can also pair hyaluronic acid and vitamin C or niacinamide for even deeper hydration.
