Spring Has Sprung: Why Hyaluronic Acid Is a Spring Skincare Essential

If you are a beauty buff like us, then you are probably no stranger to what hyaluronic acid (HA) can do for your skin. Whether you are looking to fight back on signs of ageing, prevent redness of the skin, or just add moisture to your face, hyaluronic acid truly works wonders... In this article, we will be looking at why hyaluronic acid is a springtime essential.

Why Is Hyaluronic Acid Important in Skincare?

Hyaluronic acid is extremely beneficial when it comes to protecting the skin’s barrier and maintaining the skin’s overall hydration. In your beauty routine, you may notice that some of your products will have hyaluronic acid present in various creams and serums.  So, why is it such a popular ingredient with dermatologists? 

As well as aiding your skin to maintain its optimal level of moisture, hyaluronic acid can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as delay the formation of new ones appearing. This is due to its ability to absorb and hold large amounts of water which helps the skin to retain collagen, thus improving youthful skin elasticity. This is because Hyaluronic acid helps skin to stretch, which can prevent signs of ageing. Not to mention, it may also help to reduce scarring, whether that be from acne or blemishes.

Why Is Hyaluronic Acid a Springtime Skincare Essential?

As the seasons change, so too does the weather - but how does the springtime affect our skin?  In spring, we can expect a multitude of different climates - particularly if you live in the UK. Our Skin Experts recommend using hyaluronic acid all year round for optimal results. It’s extremely beneficial during the colder months when spring is still getting started, as it helps to keep dry skin hydrated by allowing it to maintain more moisture. However, even in the warmer climate, hyaluronic acid acts as a lightweight product which won’t clog your pores.

3 Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

1. Hyaluronic Acid & Hydrated Skin

One of the number one benefits of using hyaluronic acid is that it truly helps your skin to stay moisturised. If any of your skincare products are rich in hyaluronic acid, then they will work to attract and retain water, and enable your skin to stay hydrated for longer. 

For example, our MZ Skin Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum is rich in this powerhouse ingredient, working to attract and retain moisture for a plump and dewy finish. Our Skin Experts recommend applying a few drops to your cleansed, damp face, neck and décolleté. Then, simply press into the skin until absorbed. If you have sensitive skin, this hyaluronic acid is an ideal choice. It is soothing and gentle, so it won’t irritate the skin. 

2. Anti-Ageing: Targeting Wrinkles & Fine Lines

As we get older, our skin’s natural collagen production gradually slows. Everyone experiences this and adjusting our skincare routine to enable us to keep feeling our best is a must. Our collagen levels depleting can mean that we start to see more fine lines, and wrinkles - and this is where hyaluronic acid comes in.

Hyaluronic acid has been known to reduce the appearance of ageing, as it retains the natural collagen our skin produces whilst working to plump and hydrate the skin, making wrinkles less visible. Our very own Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum has been proven to provide both deep hydrations, as well as surface hydration, promoting firm skin and reducing the formation of wrinkles.

3. Facial Redness 

As mentioned above, hyaluronic acid is gentle on sensitive skin which means that it could be good for those who suffer from skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Not only will hyaluronic acid protect your skin against any lifestyle or environmental stressors, but it also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which could reduce swelling, inflammation, and of course, redness.
