Hyaluronic acid and Hadaai Face Oil can be inseparable duo, especially in summer months. Using hyaluronic acid in winter can be a little tricky, because the moisture of the environment falls down significantly.
– Humidity –
When the humidity level is very low, applying hyaluronic acid to really dry skin can end up drawing even more moisture moisture from the deeper levels of your skin. It could cause more harm than you could think of as the moisture is brought to the outer layer of skin, whence it evaporates, leaving skin drier than it was.
– Damp skin + oils –
In winter months or in dry climate we recommend layering hyaluronic acid with face oil to provide the barrier against the moisture loss. Also you should apply hyaluronic acid serum to a damp skin for better results.
If applying the hyaluronic acid in this manner still makes your skin feel a bit dry or taut, the hyaluronic acid is probably pulling moisture out of your skin instead of pulling moisture from the air and into your skin. In this case, say ‘goodbye’ so hyaluronic acid and never look back.
– Molecular weight –
While choosing your hyaluronic acid keep in mind the molecular weight of hyaluronic acid. High molecular weight hyaluronic acid is the only form that work as both, humectant and occlusive. This is a huge advantage.
Using a product with high molecular weight hyaluronic acid allows you to have the benefits of occlusive ingredients without their downsides (“heavy” formulations that are tacky and greasy) and an dramatic increase in moisture due to its humectant properties.
– Your age –
There is no point to use hyaluronic acid for young people, as their skin contain sufficient amount of water. This product is a great filler and it may hydrate fine lines to make them slightly less noticeable.
– Not anti-ageing –
Unfortunately, it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but hyaluronic acid is not anti-ageing after all. It won’t improve your skin elasticity, cells regenerations. Mainly what is does, it forms the layer on our skin which draws moisture and we feel more hydrated.
– Note –
Hyaluronic acid of small molecular weight penetrates deeper into your skin layers. This means it can potentially carry other unwanted ingredients, chemicals, and bacteria more deeply into the skin. So be carefully what you put on your skin with hyaluronic acid, especially if you tend to have prone to breakout skin.
