Hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) is a natural occurring substance in skin that attracts, then locks water in the dermis, giving skin its thickness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines
Make the most of your moisturizer and apply it on skin immediately after it’s been towel-dried. This helps seal in added moisture and increase your product’s effectiveness.
Even those with oilier skin need might need extra hydration—just because skin is oily doesn’t mean it’s hydrated. A great moisturizing ingredient for oily skin is Hyaluronic Acid because it’s a humectant that pulls moisture from the atmosphere rather than layering it on top if skin and provides intense hydration without a heavy feel.
While drinking excessive amounts of water won’t benefit your skin, being dehydrated can have an impact on your skin’s appearance. Make sure you are consuming enough water to fight dehydration and ensure your skin is receiving the moisture it needs internally.
