Is Hyaluronic Acid for Oily Skin?

December 19, 2017


When you have oily skin, it can be difficult to know what products to use. Some products will only make the oil problem worse. Others will not have any effect. Knowing what will work best enables you to choose the right products for healthy, glowing skin. So, if oil is your problem, then you should consider a hyaluronic acid serum.

The Right Choices

The best skincare for oily skin will help reduce the oil on your skin without causing dryness, which will then cause your skin to produce more oil. It can become a rather vicious cycle. However, you still need to moisturize. If you do not, your skin will dry and the problem will persist.

That is why product choice is so essential. A hyaluronic acid for oily skin will provide a gentle moisturizing action. It won’t irritate your skin, like so many products for oily skin. It also is lightweight and will not clog your pores, which can lead to breakouts. Finally, it doesn’t contain any ingredient that adds more oil to your skin.

How Hyaluronic Acid Works

A hyaluronic acid vitamin C serum provides all day hydration for your skin. It also plumps your skin to help make it look younger and to fill in lines and wrinkles. It also will not produce a shine. Oily skin is shiny enough on its own, so you don’t want your moisturizer to add to that. Overall, hyaluronic acid helps to moisturize your skin while keeping it clean and refreshed.

What Are the Benefits of Using Hyaluronic Acid on Oily Skin? 

Skin care is all about balance. If you have excessively oily skin, your initial strategy is usually to use products that will dry out your skin. However, stripping your skin of its natural oils can have a cyclical effect: 

  • If you use harsh products to remove oil, your skin will become overly dry.
  • Once the skin dries out, the body overcompensates by producing even more oil.
  • You use the same overly harsh drying products, or try even stronger ones, and the cycle continues.

In order to break the cycle, you need to find the correct balance of controlling the oil on your skin while keeping it sufficiently moisturized. A hyaluronic acid serum, such as the one available from the Timeless Pure line of skin care products, may be the solution.

The Effects of Hyaluronic Acid on Your Skin

Hyaluronic acid has potential benefits for all skin types, including oily, dry, and combination skin. Though the skin types may be different, the potential benefits are similar. 

  1. Lightweight Moisturizing

No matter your skin type, it is important to keep your skin moisturized. Skin that is too dry, either by nature or because it has been stripped of oil, is not healthy skin. However, the common ingredients frequently included in moisturizers can make your skin feel too heavy, especially if your skin is oily at baseline. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and maintains the balance of moisture levels. The serum moisturizes the skin by holding 1000 times its weight in water, yet it doesn't feel heavy.

  1. Anti-Aging

As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid your body produces diminishes, which contributes to the development of wrinkles in the skin. Because of hyaluronic acid's ability to hold water, applying the serum produces a plumping effect that makes skin look more youthful. Timeless Serums include a range of anti-wrinkle products to help your skin look and feel more youthful.

Using a Serum

Hyaluronic acid products come in serums, which you smooth onto your face or you can get it in hydrating sprays, which you spritz on your face. Regardless of which type of product you use, you want to use it twice a day. Apply it in the morning and evening. Make sure that you use it everyday to get the best results.

Dry skin is your skin type. It’s when your skin inadequately produces natural oils. It is often confused with dehydrated skin, which is when the skin’s water content is depleted. If you have oily skin, you can still have dehydrated skin, because it is due to a lack of water, not oil. Signs of dry skin and dehydrated skin are similar. Dry skin is characterized more by being flaky, tight, and uncomfortable, while the signs  of dehydrated skin include:
