In our books, there are a few different non-negotiable skincare products. For starters, every woman should have her regular skincare routine down, consisting of a cleanser, serum, and moisturizer. From there, there are optional skincare picks you can add into this rotation, like masks, toners, exfoliators, and different cleansing tools.
Having said that, when you’re picking and choosing which skincare additions to add to your routine, if we could mention only one ingredient that we think should be at the top of every lady’s list, it would be Hyaluronic Acid.
While the sound of “acid” might not sound like the most nourishing and gentle ingredient, when it comes to revealing soft, supple, youthful skin, Hyaluronic Acid is an absolute must have.
If you’re already nodding your head, totally convinced of all the amazing benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, be sure to check out our AMETHYST Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Featuring real amethyst gemstones, this powerful serum assists in cellular regeneration, increased blood flow to the skin, and a healthy dose of antioxidants.
Do you need a little more convincing that Hyaluronic Acid is for you? Let us elaborate.
To begin, let’s make sure we all know what Hyaluronic Acid is.
Hyaluronic Acid is a skincare ingredient that can be found in everything from sheet masks, to moisturizers, and serums. It is found naturally in our bodies, and is responsible for holding onto water.
While the amount of Hyaluronic Acid will decrease in your body over time, there are certain measures that can be taken to increase the production and keep skin plump and hydrated, with diet being one of the primary factors. Of course, though, thanks to modern science, we now have plenty of skincare brands that include Hyaluronic Acid in their products to help ensure our skin is getting the proper amount of hydration.
Just from the brief description above, it probably doesn’t take an expert to see why this is such a well-loved ingredient in the skincare world, but just to make sure you truly understand the necessity of Hyaluronic Acid in your skincare routine, let’s discuss further.
As we just mentioned, Hyaluronic Acid excels at keeping skin hydrated and plump. We can’t say it enough. If you need a serious boost of hydration in your skincare routine, Hyaluronic Acid is what you should keep your eyes open for.

While Hyaluronic Acid is known for helping to create plump skin, if you’re looking for the opposite effect (i.e. you’re feeling puffy), it will also help in that department. In particular, Hyaluronic Acid is often used in eye creams to help bring relief to tired, puffy eyes.
With that in mind, be cautious about what products you’re using under your eyes. The skin under your eyes is extremely delicate, and it’s best to use a product that is specifically formulated for that area of the face. If you’re on the hunt for an effective under-eye cream, we highly recommend our best-selling LUMINOUS Under-Eye Brightening Creme
When it comes to working overtime on anti-aging, nobody does more work than Hyaluronic Acid. Trust us, start regularly using products that contain Hyaluronic Acid and watch as your fine lines and wrinkles slowly start to diminish over time.
One of the best things about Hyaluronic Acid is that it’s so readily available in a variety of products. As we mentioned earlier, you can find it in everything from your favorite skincare masks, to your regular moisturizer. Whatever your skincare concern and budget, there’s a good chance you’ll find a product that has Hyaluronic Acid listed as one of its ingredients. In other words, it’s time to start reading labels and looking out for Hyaluronic Acid. Your skin will thank you.
While Hyaluronic Acid is most well known for its hydrating properties and anti-aging abilities, it’s one of those skincare gems that anyone can get benefits out of. And yes, that includes those of you with sensitive skin. As we mentioned, while “acid” might scare you off, don’t let it. This is a gentle, hydrating skincare must-have that will bring the glow, no matter what your skin type.
