The thought of putting acid on our faces might not be the most appealing one, but hyaluronic acid is a common ingredient in the best beauty products around and is a powerful one at that. The body naturally produces hyaluronic acid and when used in beauty products can help to heal the skin, smooth the surface and reduce inflammation, making it particularly useful against the signs of ageing. Dermalogica and Decleor offer several products with hyaluronic acid, and we thought we’d show you the best of the bunch.
This moisturiser not only contains an SPF for added sun protection, but it also contains galanga extract which actually stimulates the skins own hyaluronic acid production to smooth and reduce fine lines. It also contains ginseng extract, which instantly tones and visibly brightens the skin, eliminating signs of fatigue.
As well as smoothing the skin, hyaluronic acid holds up to a thousand times its own weight in water, which gives maximum hydration to the skin. This moisturiser from Dermalogica helps to protect the skin from the external forces which cause ageing, whilst also repairing the skin and revering the internal forces of ageing. It also contains a high SPF to deflect the sun’s harmful rays.
These little pouches are one of the most powerful weapons in Dermalogica’s arsenal and they’re clever too; as well as containing hyaluronic acid to resurface the skin, they also contain botanical skin brighteners and maximum hydrators which prevent redness and inflammation. They’re suitable for all skin types and will improve the appearance of just about every face they touch!
This facial mist offers a number of functions; it hydrates the skin deeply, forms an antioxidant shield against free radicals, firms the skin, improves elasticity, protects against pollution and a whole wealth of other things. It’s best used after cleansing as a toning and moisturising solution, but can also be used throughout the day, even over the top of your make-up!
If you’ve never used this cleansing mousse before, you’ll be hooked once you see how the cream takes on a mousse-like texture when it comes in contact with water! The hyaluronic acid is combined with grape juice, papaya extract and Japanese white mulberry as well as neroli essential oil which will exfoliate, hydrate, smooth and soothe the skin.
