Hyaluronic Acid serum is a natural skincare regime that has received attention and coverage from beauty editors and experts alike. We take a look at what the acid is and why this miracle ingredient is making waves for all the right reasons.
what is Hyaluronic Acid serum?
Hyaluronic Acid serum is derived from Hyaluronic Acid, a molecule also known as a glycosaminoglycan. It is produced naturally in humans, animals and plants.
For humans, this natural substance can be found in your body's skin, nerves, eyes and joints. The acid is linked to keeping you youthful in your early years by maintaining an exceptional amount of moisture within your skin. Thus, your skin is plumped and supple, like you were as a baby. However, as you age, particularly after you turn 40, your skin loses this moisture and becomes less tight and less firm over time.
why is the serum beneficial for people's skin?
The acid has a quality that can hold an exceptional amount of moisture in the skin. In fact, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can hold up to one thousand times its weight in water. It can help your skin to feel softer, firmer and tighter with its unique properties. One application and you are likely to see or feel the result.
is Hyaluronic Acid suitable for all skin types?
For oily skin, HA is perfect as it will help to absorb excess oil on your skin, leaving you with skin that is soft, smooth and with a matte like feeling.
The acid is also suitable for dry skin. However, you'll need to pair with a face oil to ensure you get the best result.
what are the other benefits of using the serum?
Other research has indicated that this ingredient can help in many other ways. It can also be found as a supplement. The ingredient is used in medical surgery as well and is typically said to be more important than collagen as it's a support agent.
what does your serum contain?
At baimeni, we've developed our serum with nature in mind. Our skin plumping serum is free from sulphates, parabens, lanolin, SLS, SLES, artificial colours & fragrances. So you know you're getting a quality product without any nasties!
how often should you use the serum?
The best use is twice daily. Morning and night. One or two pumps is all you'll need and the bottle should last you a few months. After applying, use a moisturiser as part of your skin care regime.
If you have dry or sensitive skin as mentioned before, consider using a face oil before application.
When using a product for the first time, we always recommend you perform a patch test to see if your skin reacts to the product. You can do this by applying the product behind your ear or on your elbow. Wait a few hours, or in some cases 24 hours depending on your needs to see how you go.
