Spotlight on Hyaluronic Acid

Spotlight on Hyaluronic Acid

Acid in your skincare? It sounds scientific, but it's actually completely natural. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in your skin that helps to preserve its youthful appearance

Adding hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine can replace some of the moisture that mature skin loses over time. Here’s how it works.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid works to moisten skin by attracting and binding water molecules.

It is abundant in the skin and body, not only moistening and plumping facial skin, but also lubricating joints and repairing wounded tissue. Hyaluronic acid is essential to skin’s elasticity and structure and even helps to lessen the appearance of scars.

Read up on these frequently asked questions about hyaluronic acid in skincare to get to the bottom of this essential ingredient.

Why Use Hyaluronic Acid in Skincare?

As our bodies age and our skin matures, the hyaluronic acid previously found in the epidermis begins to diminish, leading to drier skin and more apparent wrinkles.

Adding in products that utilize hyaluronic acid as a key ingredient helps to reincorporate that essential moisture. This is especially important for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and crepey texture in more mature skin.

Is Sodium Hyaluronate the Same Thing?

You may notice some products list sodium hyaluronate as an ingredient instead of hyaluronic acid. Is it the same thing? Somewhat.

Sodium hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid, meaning it is a very closely related compound to hyaluronic acid.

Sodium hyaluronate actually attracts water to the skin even more effectively than hyaluronic acid alone. This is because it is a hydrophilic substance, holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and delivering all of that hydration to your skin.

Where Can I Find it?

You’re in luck, as Fièra products such as the Multi-Effect Neck + Decolletage Cream and the Citrus Stem C Serum utilize sodium hyaluronate as key ingredients for firm and hydrated skin.

Simply massage into your skin to reintroduce the hyaluronic acid that you skin loses throughout the aging process.

How Do I Get the Most Out of Hyaluronic Acid?

To get the most benefit out of hyaluronic acid, make sure to follow these skincare tips and tricks.

Pair it with an SPF 

A lot of the signs of aging that we see in mature skin are actually due to what is called “extrinsic aging.” This means that external factors such as UV radiation are causing the appearance of wrinkles and drier skin that lacks hyaluronic acid.

By pairing your hyaluronic acid products with an SPF, you can fight aging from two different angles and ward those UV rays away.

Use consistently 

Fièra products work best when used consistently. Always apply according to package instructions, whether once or twice daily.

This provides an ongoing supply of hyaluronic acid to skin that naturally produces less. You’ll begin to see real results with a regular skincare routine.

Layer products 

Combining products that utilize hyaluronic acid along with other beneficial ingredients is a great way to see the most improvement in your skin.

If you act now, you can bundle Fièra’s best selling hyaluronic acid products, our Multi-Effect Neck + Decolletage Cream and our Citrus Stem C Serum with the Apple Stem Cell Cream in our complete Skincare Set

This set is specifically bundled to act as a comprehensive skincare solution, moisturizing and plumping skin while also reducing the appearance of dark spots and redness.
