Youthfully radiant and luminous – the coveted glass skin look has been a popular beauty trend that’s gotten everyone to pay more attention to having that fresh, lit-from-within skin. Similar to how a piece of glass is clear and smooth, glass skin refers to a translucent, hydrated, and luminous complexion with the right amount of sheen.
And when it comes to achieving dewy, hydrated skin, Hyaluronic acid can pack a punch in ramping up hydration levels and maintaining your moisture barrier. This naturally-occurring substance in the body is known for its impressive ability to attract and hold onto 1000 times its weight in moisture from the surroundings. As such, moisture is retained in the skin and prevented from evaporating into the air – enhancing a healthy, supple look and feel to the skin.
We explore more in-depth on the benefits that Hyaluronic acid deliver to the skin.
Keeps the skin sufficiently hydrated
Sitting in an air-conditioned room can provide you relief from the heat outside, but staying in there for an extended period of time can dry out your skin. Air conditioners suck the moisture and humidity from the air, and this can lead to a loss of moisture in your skin too.
If your skin is feeling dehydrated and looking dull, Hyaluronic acid can continually keep the skin moisturized throughout the day due to its ability to draw water from the environment for long-lasting hydration. When applied using skincare products like serums and creams, Hyaluronic Acid can enhance the protective barrier on the skin and lock down moisture – giving the skin a plumper, more radiant look.
Turns back the clock on your skin
As people age, the skin loses the ability to hold onto water and retain a balanced amount of moisture. This results in visible loss of resilience and firmness, as wrinkles and fine lines start to form and become more visible. At the same time, Hyaluronic acid keeps collagen synthesis up to maintain skin elasticity to give off a more dewy and youthful appearance. Besides retaining skin moisture, Hyaluronic acid can contribute with anti-ageing benefits to the skin – diminishing the appearance of fine lines, and keep the skin firm and supple.
Contributes to improving breakouts and acne scars
Hyaluronic Acid works for any skin type, including oily and acne-prone complexion. It ensures the skin’s moisture barrier is functioning effectively to keep it hydrated and supple. As such, sebum levels are more regulated and the skin stays away from being dehydrated. The skin produces excess oil to make up for the lack of hydration, and this increases the likelihood of clogged pores – leading to breakouts. Thus, by rebalancing the optimal moisture content, acne breakouts can be improved.
Hyaluronic Acid can also help you to get rid of acne scars – through dermal filler treatments. Hyaluronic Acid-based face fillers help to restore lost volume and diminish signs of ageing – but it can also be used for indented and depressed scars. When injected, new collagen growth is stimulated and over time, the skin texture will be more evened out and the appearance of scars is improved. For the best results, fillers can also be combined with other acne scar treatments such as Infini Fractional RadioFrequency (FRF) treatment – which delivers heat energy through a patented microneedle system to stimulate deep collagen production and remodel the scarred areas.
