Can I use Hyaluronic Acid for Oily Skin

Can I use Hyaluronic Acid for Oily Skin? 

It can be difficult to know what products to use when you have oily or combination skin and still want to achieve a healthy glow. Oily skin is defined as the overproduction of oil, most evident in the T-zone- chin, nose and forehead- that leads to enlarged pores, and generally more breakouts. There are many factors that go in to having oily skin, some of which are harder to control, such as genetics or hormones but there are other factors that play into it, such as diet and skin care products, where your oily fate is in your hands! 

Some skin care products can exacerbate the problem, while others have no effect. The best products will help reduce sheen and breakouts, without causing dryness. You don’t necessarily want to eliminate all of the oil in your skin, because that is also what helps keep your skin plump and glowing. It’s all about achieving the right balance for your skin. 

By trying to combat excessively oily skin, sometimes using strong products, such as a cleanser with a pH level higher than 5.5 can actually make it worse and create a vicious cycle: 

  1. Your skin feels tight and dry after washing and toning. 
  2. Once the skin dries out, the body overcompensates by producing even more oil.
  3. You continue to use harsh products, or try even stronger ones, and the cycle continues with your skin even oilier than before. 

 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. The key is to embrace a hydrating layer into your skin care routine in order to keep the oil in check. A hyaluronic acid based serum, such as Timeless Hyaluronic acid vitamin C serum  that is lightweight, yet moisturizing, may be the solution. 

How Hyaluronic Acid Works

HA is a gel-like substance that naturally occurs in the skin and works as a magnet for moisture, absorbing up to 1000 times in weight in water. 

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. 


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

Choosing a lightweight product like Hyaluronic Acid Vitamin C Serum won’t clog pores or leave a heavy residue while still providing a gentle moisturizing action. 

It’s important to choose a product that is gentle and clean, without unnecessary fillers or fragrance that can exacerbate sensitive skin. Timeless Serums include a range of anti-wrinkle products to help your skin look and feel more youthful.

WHY DOES pH MATTER? The Magic Balance of Healthy Skin
WHY DOES pH MATTER? The Magic Balance of Healthy Skin

December 31, 2020

They say everything in nature is about balance, and that is no less true when it comes to our skin. Achieving the delicate ying and yang of beautiful skin may come down to maintaining the right pH balance. So, what is the magic pH level of healthy skin?  On a scale of 0 to 14, the ideal state is slightly acidic, sitting around 5.

What products we use can also affect the pH level of healthy skin. Have you ever wondered why some cleansers give your skin that squeaky-clean tight feeling? They could be disrupting your skin’s pH level. Choose soap-free cleansers that are pH balanced (not too alkaline or too acidic) that fall within the range of normal, healthy skin.
