How can I use it?
We recommend incorporating HA into your skincare routine via your daily moisturiser. This is because moisturisers are made up of different types of "moisturising" ingredients which are designed to work well together. HA is a "humectant" - which meant that it attracts water molecules and holds on to them. You want to combine humectants with emollients (ingredients which trap in moisture by forming a barely detectable layer on the top of your skin) so that the water attracted by the humectant ingredients doesn't disappear. (If you're using an HA serum, it goes on under your moisturiser for this reason.) We also love a HA face mask or sheet mask for an extra boost of hydration.
Most ingredients are completely fine to use with hyaluronic acid, including retinoids, vitamins, other acids and even peels. But make sure you watch out for acids with low pH levels, like glycolic acid, because they may degrade the HA and make it ineffective.
Hyaluronic Acid is a wonder ingredient year round, but is most useful in Winter, as that is when your skin has trouble retaining moisture most due to the cold weather (this is because when it's cold and dry, the water in our skin evaporates more quickly versus when its hot and humid). Our Mad About Moisture moisturising drops contain two weights of HA, to keep skin healthy, glowy, plump and hydrated, (and also prevent wrinkles). These can be used on-the-go, at your boyfriends/girlfriends house, before date night, after the gym, or wherever you like. When you're done, just pop them in the compost bin or dissolve in boiling water for sustainable skincare.🌏⚡️
