Hyaluronic Acid Serum and creams have been rising in popularity and are becoming a regular part of many women’s skincare routines all over the world. However if you are unfamiliar with the product, then the name itself may seem pretty intimidating. Rest assured, there is nothing to fear. In this post we want to explain exactly what Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is and what it does to your skin.
First of all, it’s natural, not a trend. That’s right! Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance that is already present in our body. In fact, almost 50% of our body’s HA is found in the skin. It has two purposes, it acts as a lubrication agent for joints as well as retaining moisture in your skin, leaving it to look and feel softer.
But why does Hyaluronic Acid Serum matter?
What happens is, as we get older our skin loses the ability to hold moisture. The scientific cause, our natural HA levels are decreasing. As a result, the elasticity of our skin decreases making us appear older. That’s when wrinkles, crows feet and lines start to get more defined.
This is where a hyaluronic acid serum can help you. It doesn’t strip away or exfoliate dead skin cells in fact, it’s the exact opposite. The serum contains a powerful moisture-binding ingredient that is capable of holding 1000x its weight in water. What it will do is draw water to the skin and prevent moisture loss. This in turn, will keep your skin plump, hydrated and of course, looking young.
Hyaluronic Acid serums can be a part of your regular skincare routine. If you aren’t currently using one but are experiencing any of the following, you should definitely consider it:
● Dull, lifeless, dry and/or dehydrated skin
● Aging skin with loss of elasticity and collagen
● Wrinkles, crow’s feet and fine lines
● Uneven skin tone complexion and rough skin texture
● Spider veins or dark circles
Our Petunia Skin Care Hyaluronic Acid Serum is made with natural, vegan and organic ingredients. This way you can maintain your skin in a holistic way. With the use of our serum, you should be able to notice the benefits it brings to you:
● Supple, firmer, softer, plumper, younger looking skin!
● Diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
● Retained skin moisture and elasticity
● Diminished appearance of dark circles and puffiness
● An overall vibrant and glowing complexion
Still not convinced?
Well, Hyaluronic Acid is already being incorporated into a wide variety of cosmetics and skincare products for the exact same reasons we’ve mentioned. It’s included as an ingredient in everything from makeup to moisturizers. You may already be receiving the great benefits of HA but just not its full capacity. If the product’s formula contains less than 1% Hyaluronic Acid, then is may not be as effective as a specialized serum.
Ready to get started?
We would recommend starting with the Petunia Skin Care Hyaluronic Acid Serum as opposed to a Hyaluronic Acid infused topical cream. Although topical creams may also create a barrier on top of the skin to improve moisture levels, they tend to be heavier and may not necessarily agree with your skin.
Serums are generally suitable for all skin types, even those with eczema or acne-prone skin. Since serums are water-based, this makes them lightweight and less irritating for your skin. Additionally, a serum will penetrate deeper as well as absorb more quickly and easily. Another benefit is that a Hyaluronic Acid Serum can be layered under other products without interfering with them. Combining it with your choice in moisturizer can help achieve the soft, plump skin you’ve always wanted.
