Is It Beneficial To Use Hyaluronic Acid for Acne?


Even oily skin needs hydration. Boosting your skin’s moisture levels with a gentle ingredient like Hyaluronic Acid 100% Pure helps keep your skin healthy, combats the signs of aging and gives your skin that youthful glow. 

 

Sometimes using harsh or highly acidic products to address the overproduction of oil and subsequent breakouts can actually make your acne worse. If you overdry the skin, the body compensates by producing even more oil. This can create a vicious cycle. It’s beneficial to use a non-oily product such as Hyaluronic Acid for oily skin because it helps retain moisture without clogging pores or leaving a heavy residue. 

By adding Hyaluronic Acid into your skin care routine, you can actually help keep oil production in check and minimize the potential for acne that leads to  acne scars.

How Hyaluronic Acid Works

Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant, renowned for holding up to 1000 times its weight in water. This gel-like substance is naturally found in the skin, binding and retaining moisture; however, the production of Hyaluronic Acid gradually declines as we age, causing our skin to become less supple and bereft of that dewy glow.    

How Hyaluronic Acid Improves the Skin 

Hyaluronic Acid in a serum or cream provides long-lasting hydration, smoothing out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additional effects of Hyaluronic Acid include plumping up the skin, increasing elasticity, relieving tightness and assisting in the delivery of active ingredients. 

A gentle, clean product like Hyaluronic Acid 100% Pure provides hydration without unnecessary fillers or fragrance that can exacerbate and inflame sensitive skin.

Adding Hyaluronic Acid To Your Routine

Hyaluronic acid is a great addition to your morning skin care routine,  and/or evening routine,depending on personal preference. If you are using a brightening serum such as our Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C serum, it can be applied immediately after cleansing or toning, followed by your regular moisturizer and SPF. 

For your beauty routine before bed, mix  Hyaluronic Acid 100% Pure into your nighttime cream for extra hydrating benefits while you sleep. There are also many sheet masks  options with Hyaluronic Acid to achieve that perfect dewy glow!

Hyaluronic Acid for All Skin Types - Even Oily Skin 

For acne and/or oily-prone skin that is likely more inflamed and troubled, Hyaluronic acid is ideal.  All skin types can benefit with this on the go ingredient. As with any skin care product choose high-quality, dermatologist-tested formulations that are best suited for your specific skin care needs and include active ingredients.
