In this article, you will find out what hyaluronic acid is, how to use it and what not to pair it with to get the best results for your skin.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid has water retention properties that attract moisture to your skin. This helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. It works by binding with the collagen in your skin as well as elastin and this helps to keep your skin youthful and radiant.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Hyaluronic Acid?
The main benefit of using hyaluronic acid is its hydrating properties, however, it comes with many more great qualities.
Hyaluronic acid can help protect your skin against lifestyle and environmental damage and reduce irritation, as well as being anti-inflammatory, and full of antioxidants.
The Barbara Strum hyaluronic acid serum will leave your skin fresh and radiant as it will provide deep hydration as well as surface hydration. This also helps to reduce the signs of ageing, fine lines, and wrinkles as it plumps and firms the skin.
How To Use Hyaluronic Acid?
To get the optimum results there is a set way for when to use hyaluronic acid in your routine. It can be used in the morning, to help keep your skin moisturised all day, and also in the evening to hydrate your skin and replace any moisture that has been lost.
Step 1: Before you go to bed or when you wake up in the morning, you should start by washing your face with a hydrating cleanser to make sure your skin is clean and rid of any bacteria or impurities.
Step 2: Then apply your facial toner or facial mist but make sure to not dry your face or even pat it dry. You could even just add some water to your skin after you cleanse to make sure there is some moisture present on your skin.
Step 3: Then apply a few drops of the Dr Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum to your skin. Squeeze the serum into the palm of your hand and apply it evenly to your face, before patting it in gently.
Step 4: Now is the step where you apply your chosen moisturiser. This helps your skin to absorb and seal in any moisturiser.
The key to getting the most out of your hyaluronic acid is to always apply it to damp skin. This helps to hydrate your skin as the hyaluronic can draw the moisture from the water and replenish this mack into your skin.
What Not To Mix With Hyaluronic Acid In Skincare
When it comes to the lotions and potions that you apply to your face, some are the perfect pairings whereas others can counteract the other one therefore not giving your skin the full benefit of the products.
Hyaluronic acid can be paired with many amazing serums and can be layered with other products, such as vitamin C and retinol.
However, you should not pair it with acids like glycolic acid because it will make the hyaluronic acid ineffective.
