This serum’s highest active ingredient is a hyaluronic acid. Please see the benefits below:

Why Science Says Hyaluronic Acid Is the Holy Grail to Wrinkle-Free, Youthful HydrationWhat’s hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan found throughout the body’s connective tissue. Therefore, glycosaminoglycans are simply long unbranched carbohydrates, or sugars, called polysaccharides.

HA is the main component of what gives your skin structure, and is responsible for that plump and hydrated look. You may have heard the chatter around collagen, but hyaluronic acid is where it’s at.

With the buzz around anti-aging, it’s about time we talk about hyaluronic acid, its benefits for our skin, and why molecular weight of an ingredient is important! It plays a pivotal role in the wound healing process, and decreases as we age making us more susceptible to sagging and wrinkles.

Read on to learn the science behind hyaluronic acid, so you can see that HA isn’t just a fad ingredient, but a staple for your skin care routine.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?

HA benefits
anti-aging
moisturizing
wound healing
anti-wrinkle
increases skin elasticity
can treat eczema
can treat facial redness

Why’s hyaluronic acid so magical?

For starters, HA can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water! In other words, it functions as a humectant and holds water molecules onto the surface of your skin to keep it nice and hydrated.

Anytime we’re talking about skin that’s well-moisturized, we’re mainly referring to skin that has a lot of water content. Perhaps you’ve heard the term transepidermal water loss, or TEWL for short? This is the scientific term for the measurement of how much water is evaporated from the skin.

When a product prevents TEWL, that means it’s keeping your skin hydrated by making sure that water doesn’t escape from your skin’s surface. Hyaluronic acid does exactly that by slowing the rate at which the water evaporates.

Apart from being a very effective hydrator, a couple of studies have also found that it’s very good for healing wounds, too!

Are there side effects to using hyaluronic acid?

If you’re formulating your own products, or purchasing HA products that list the percentage, we recommend keeping the HA concentration below 2 percent.

Why?

A very low molecular weight of 5 kDA HA has the ability to penetrate the skin, which means it can potentially carry other unwanted ingredients, chemicals, and bacteria more deeply into the skin. If you have compromised skin, this might be bad news. Thankfully, on its own, HA tends to not cause allergic reactions since our bodies also make it.

Fortunately, cosmetic chemists have this science down, so we can defer to their expertise and what people say about certain HA products. But if you’re formulating your own HA serums, know that not all hyaluronic acid is equal.

This holy grail of hydration may have unintended side effects. There are some varieties of HA that are a bit controversial, and increased levels are actually linked to inflammatory skin diseases like psoriasis.

One study found that an application of HA actually slowed down wound healing, compared to just pure glycerin. This may have been because of the concentration and molecular weight of the hyaluronic acid.

What’s the science behind hyaluronic acid?

The benefits of hyaluronic acid on the skin has to do with its molecular weight and concentration. In this case, size matters! The molecular weight refers to its mass, or how big the HA molecule is. This is measured in something called unified atomic mass units — daltons, or kDa for short.

HA between 50 to 1,000 kDa is the most beneficial for skin, with about 130 kDa being the best, according to the most recent human studies. Anything higher won’t make too much of a difference. Anything lower might cause inflammation.

How did we get this number?

When you look at studies, you’ll see a pattern, but one of the most thorough studiesTrusted Source looked at HA with different molecular weights, including 50, 130, 300, 800, and 2,000 kDa.

After one month, they found that treatment with 130 kDa HA was the most effective, increasing skin elasticity by 20 percent. Both the 50 and 130 kDa groups had significant improvement in wrinkle-depth and skin roughness after 60 days. All the other molecular weights still improved elasticity and skin hydration, just less so. You can read more about this molecular weight analysis from the original breakdown here.

Diameter of hyaluronic acid

The diameter of hyaluronic acid is also important as it too determines the ingredient’s ability to penetrate the skin. A recent studyTrusted Source investigated the efficacy of a topical, low molecular nano-hyaluroid acid, and found that smaller substances under 500 kDa:

changed the depth of wrinkles
increased moisture
increased elasticity around the eye
absorbed into the skin better

Larger molecules, with a molecular weight greater than 500 kDa, had a more difficult time passing through the skin barrier.

What products should you use?

There are skin care products out there that take away all the guesswork for you by combining various HA molecules for maximum effectiveness. It’s like a jam-packed party of hyaluronic acid-y goodness.

HA ingredients to look for
hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid
sodium acetylated hyaluronate
sodium hyaluronate

How to use a serum?

Serums deliver a highly concentrated blast of nutrients directly to your skin. To use, apply a few drops after you wash your face but before you apply moisturizer. Serums absorb deep into your skin, rather than sitting on the surface like moisturizers. Serums work great for specific concerns like acne, dry skin, brightness, and wrinkles. After you wash your face, apply a pea-sized amount of serum to your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. For best results, use both a daytime and nighttime serum.

Try a serum with aloe vera for an all-purpose option. If you have a “normal” skin type or simply want a serum to keep your skin flawless, try one with these ingredients. Aloe vera reduces redness and boosts skin hydration.

This is a great option if you don’t have any “problem areas” but still want to treat your skin to rich nourishment. It’s also a good option to help fade sun damage and acne scars.

Apply a serum with hyaluronic acid if you have dry skin. Hyaluronic acid help the skin retain moisture. The serum will not feel like a heavy moisturizer, and it will deeply hydrate your skin in seconds.

Serum with Peptides?

Choose a serum with peptides to reduce wrinkles. Peptides help build healthy skin. This serum contains various peptides. Combine these ingredients, and you have a fabulous, wrinkle-reducing serum. For best results, apply these serums at night so your skin can absorb the serum as you sleep, helpful when treating wrinkles.

Use this as an under-the-eye serum to reduce the appearance of dark circles. There are specially formulated serums specifically made to target dark circles under your eyes. If you want to reduce the appearance of under-the-eye circles, opt for one of these.

Choose both a daytime serum and nighttime serum for best results.

Daytime serums are typically less concentrated, so you don’t have to worry about sun exposure. Nighttime serums are very concentrated, and the ingredients take effect while you are sleeping. Use both to keep your skin as healthy and flawless as possible.

Start slowly with your serums to give your skin time to adjust to new products. Start by applying your nightly serum once every other day, and gradually increase build toward nightly application over the course of a few weeks. Then, add your daily serum.
Use an antioxidant serum in the morning to keep your skin protected. Apply a nighttime serum with retinol to keep a youthful appearance.

How to apply your serum:

Wash and exfoliate your skin before you apply your serum. Before you apply your serum, wash your face with a facial wash or scrub. Wet your face, then massage your face wash over your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Move your fingers in small, circular motions, then rinse the face wash away.

Washing your face removes superficial dirt and oil, while exfoliating gets into your pores for a deep clean.

For best results, wash your face daily and exfoliate your skin 3-4 times a week. Do not use a manual exfoliator and a chemical exfoliator like glycolic acid in the same day.
Apply 1 drop to each section of your face if using a thin serum. The amount of serum you use will vary depending on the consistency of the ingredients. When using thinner serums, you only need a tiny amount. Apply 1 drop to your finger, then rub onto your cheek. Repeat this for the other cheek, as well as your forehead and nose/chin area. Gently rub the serum in an upwards motion.

Warm 3-5 drops in your hands before applying a thick serum to the face. More dense serums need to be warmed up before you apply them. To do this, drip a few drops into the palm of your hand, then rub your hands together. This evenly distributes the product on both of your hands, as well. Then, use gentle pressing movements to apply the serum over your face. Cover both cheeks, your forehead, your nose, and your chin.

When applying the serum, you want to push the product into your skin with gentle sweeping motions.
Tap your skin gently for 30-60 seconds until the serum is absorbed. After you’ve rubbed the serum onto your skin, place your fingers on your cheek and press your skin in small, circular motions. Repeat this across the entirety of your face for about a minute.

This way, the serum will absorb deep into your skin.

Wait one minute to apply moisturizer over all of your face. Your serum will mostly dissolve into your skin after about a minute. Then, squeeze a dime-size amount of moisturizer into your hand, and rub it over your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin.
The moisturizer seals in all of the serum’s nourishing properties, so your skin will look radiant and glowing in no time.
If you are doing this in the morning, you can apply your makeup after you apply the moisturizer. Just give the moisturizer another minute to dry before starting your makeup routine.
