Redness, itchiness, and fine lines—you’ll know these symptoms all too well if you have dry skin like me. When it comes to skin care products, we always reach for moisturizers, hydrating serums and masks that will give our skin that much-needed moisture.
Years of investing in moisturizing skincare have made me realize that one product certainly doesn’t fit all when you have dry skin. It used to be a real challenge for me to find the right serum or moisturizer that’ll help reduce symptoms such as flaking, irritation, rough patches, and redness.
One of the most popular skincare ingredients today is Hyaluronic Acid. But, what is it and what good does it really do for the skin?
I know the sight of the word “acid” might instantly frighten you but worry not because Hyaluronic Acid or what’s commonly listed as HA in your beauty products, is actually a naturally-occurring compound in your skin.
It can be found in our eyes, internal fluids, and connective tissues but approximately 50% of its total amount in the body can be found in our skin.
HA is a jelly-like substance that acts as a cushioning agent and keeps the skin plump and supple. It is a moisture-binding ingredient that provides lubrication and works by helping the skin retain water, keeping it healthy, plump and hydrated.
It absorbs and holds moisture while preserving its elasticity and firmness with its extra moisture retention properties.
Basically, the presence of Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin cells survive longer because it prevents the buildup of dead skin by making the epidermis thicker. It also protects the epidermis from free radicals our bodies absorb from too much exposure to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun.“David Bank, M.D. recommends this serum with 100 percent medical-grade hyaluronic acid to instantly impart hydration and make skin smoother and softer.” - Women’sHealthMag.com
Along with collagen, Hyaluronic Acid plays an important role in keeping your skin healthy and youthful. You probably have heard about collagen from skin care professionals and anti-aging experts.
It is a fibrous protein that can be found in your skin. Collagen, water and HA form together this structure that reinforces the walls of your skin cells. These compounds go hand-in-hand together to keep your skin looking supple and firm: the collagen maintains cartilage elasticity, while the HA holds the moisture.
You might be wondering why on earth do you need Hyaluronic Acid if your body is already producing it for you?
Unfortunately, our body’s ability to produce Hyaluronic Acid reduces as we age resulting in visible signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, dryness and sagging skin.
This is why synthetically-derived Hyaluronic acid products that help replenish our lost HA reserve have become extremely popular.
The body produces about 15 grams of Hyaluronic Acid but we degrade one-third of that amount on a daily basis. Normally, the HA lost is simply replaced but in as early as our 20s, the production of HA begins to wane and decrease.
The synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid takes a complex process and our aging bodies eventually will not be able to keep up because the metabolic power of our cells is decreasing.
This means that the HA levels of your body are most likely not enough to satisfy your body’s needs and the telltale signs of aging will become apparent. When this occurs, your skin cells will not be able to hold enough water and the collagen itself will degenerate resulting in saggy, wrinkly skin.
This is why we need more Hyaluronic Acid to keep skin tight, firm and youthful.
As I have said, I absolutely love including Hyaluronic Acid in my skincare routine and this is because of the tons of wonderful benefits that it does to my skin. Here are the top reasons as to why it has given me a better complexion and why it has gained so much attention in skincare:
Hyaluronic Acid acts as a magnet for moisture allowing your skin to absorb it.
In fact, an HA molecule can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Wow right? This amazing ability is Hyaluronic Acid’s superpower which enables it to provide lasting moisture for our skin.
As we age, we produce less HA which makes our skin lose its suppleness and gives way to signs of aging.
Using HA restores skin’s moisture making it more supple which in turn helps smooth out the fine lines and wrinkles. It’s like transforming a dehydrated raisin to a plump grape! Hyaluronic Acid is the key to achieving ageless, radiant skin.
Dry skin is more vulnerable to damage and infections and you can protect it by using Hyaluronic Acid.
HA provides a rich moisture barrier that acts like armor with its skin-soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.
It also gives the skin antioxidant defenses against free radicals like pollution, UV rays and other aggressors.

Hyaluronic acid is phenomenally beneficial for all skin types. Whether you have dry, oily or combination skin, Hyaluronic Acid is perfect for your skin type. This is one of the best things about HA.
It is obviously great for dry and aging skin because of its moisturizing and anti-aging properties but it is also perfect for oily complexions.
People who have oily or combination skin types still very much need hydration and Hyaluronic Acid’s lightweight formulation will not clog the pores while still providing the skin it’s much-needed moisture.
HA is also good for people who have sensitive and blemish-prone skin as it can help calm the skin while protecting it with its antioxidant properties. It’s also incredibly gentle but drenches skin with long-lasting hydration.
Products with Hyaluronic acid absorb without leaving any residue and boast incredible benefits. So what’s not to love?
Hyaluronic acid is commonly used in cosmetic surgery as injectable treatments as it is said to deliver more effective results than a Hyaluronic acid cream or serums. The size of the molecule of Hyaluronic Acid in topical products are usually larger and may not always penetrate deep within the skin.
However, unless you’re loaded with cash and not afraid of needles, a hyaluronic acid serum is your best option. It may have larger molecules than injectable fillers but it contains concentrated active ingredients that are good enough to deliver exceptional results.
Hyaluronic acid serums not only plump and moisturize the skin, but they also help to heal and soothe inflammation too.
You will surely notice amazing results because Hyaluronic acid serums are potent and have a thin consistency allowing your skin to soak up all that Hyaluronic acid has to offer.
Let it sit for 5 minutes to be completely absorbed into your skin before moving onto the next step of your skincare routine.
My favorite Hyaluronic Acid Serum at the moment? YEOUTH’s Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum.
It contains 100% pure medical grade hyaluronic acid so you’re sure that it will give you the hydrating results your skin needs.
I love how I can use it under my other regular products like sunscreen. I had a very dry patch on my leg and when I used the serum under my regular moisturizer, it was gone in 2 days! So it doesn’t work only for your face.
Since using this serum, I have found my skin to have a brighter and healthier appearance. I also use it on my decolletage area and see an improvement there as well.
I honestly expected this to be so-so, but after a few days (about 3) I saw a great change in my skin's tightness and overall appearance.
My laugh lines seemed intense to me before using this product, now they are much less dramatic and I love this stuff for making that happen. I'd tried some other brand Hyaluronic Acid serum but they are undoubtedly not as effective as this one.
Start with clean skin. For best results, spritz on YEOUTH Balancing Facial Toner.
While your skin is still damp (important!), apply a pea-sized amount of YEOUTH Pure Hyaluronic Acid to entire face and neck area. Allow to absorb into the skin.
Follow with your favorite moisturizer or you can use YEOUTH’s Anti-aging Moisturizer L-22 or YEOUTH’s Day Night Cream. These moisturizers will support the anti-aging benefits of the serum and will create a barrier on top of the skin to keep all the good stuff in.
You can use this Serum in the morning and night.
If you’re a beginner when it comes to Hyaluronic Acid, it is recommended you test it out first and start slowly by applying it only once per day. See how your skin reacts and if you do not experience any negative reactions, continue and add it as a staple to your morning and night time skincare routine.
Hydrated skin is happy skin! More than happy, your skin will totally love YEOUTH’s 100% Pure Medical Grade Hyaluronic acid. Think of it as a tall glass of lemonade on a hot summer day for your parched skin.
Give it a few weeks and you’ll see more supple skin and less visible pores. It seems to have the right amount of concentration (not greasy or heavy) and the hyaluronic acid used is of excellent quality.
It's a great substitute for high-end products that do the same thing. Make sure you apply it to a damp face and this product will last about 4 weeks. It attracts moisture as well to keep what moisture your skin already has in place.
Make room for it in your daily skin care regimen today for plump, younger-looking skin tomorrow!
