Skincare 101: About that Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid

Skincare 101 series - we'll be diving into the science and wonders of essential skincare ingredients. In this post, we'll be exploring the dynamic duo of glycerin and hyaluronic acid, featuring some key products packed with these incredible ingredients. It's pretty much the key to healthy, radiant skin all day long!

Understanding Glycerin - foundation of a solid skincare routine
Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is a versatile ingredient that plays a pivotal role in skincare. It is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture to the skin, keeping it supple and hydrated. Representative collections include Aqua Collection - products are enriched with glycerin, designed to quench thirsty skin, leaving it revitalized and refreshed. 

Here's a deeper look into why glycerin is integral. 

  1. Humectant Properties: When applied to the skin, glycerin draws water from the environment and deeper layers of the skin, helping to keep the skin hydrated.

  2. Moisturizing Effect: Due to its moisture-attracting capabilities, glycerin helps prevent and alleviate dryness by maintaining the skin's water balance. 

  3. Barrier Support: Glycerin contributes to strengthening the skin's natural barrier. By maintaining adequate hydration levels, it helps protect the skin from external factors such as harsh weather conditions and pollutants.

  4. Soothing and Calming:  It helps calm the skin and reduces the appearance of redness - benefitting irritated or sensitive skin. 

  5. Compatibility with Various Skin Types: Suitable for a wide range of skin types, including sensitive and oily skin. It is non-comedogenic, meaning it won't clog pores, making it a versatile ingredient in skincare formulations.

  6. Enhanced Product Texture: It's what gives skincare products a smooth and lightweight feel - making it easy to apply and comfortable on the skin.

  7. Versatile Application: Found in a variety of skincare products, including cleansers, toners, serums, and moisturizers. Its compatibility with other ingredients makes it a common component in skincare formulations.

Hyaluronic Acid - hydration powerhouse
It is a glycosaminoglycan, which is a type of molecule that can hold a large amount of water. In skincare, hyaluronic acid is widely used for its unparalleled ability to retain water. Aqua Hyaluronic Essence is the perfect example. Why this toner works so well and last so long is precisely because of hyaluronic acid. With seven layers of this goodness, moisture penetrates through each layer of skin ensuring hydration literally from the inside out. Not hard to guess why Aqua Hyaluronic Essence remains a top favorite for many till this day. Additionally, the Clean Collection showcases the depth of Hyaluronic Acid's reach in the hydration game. 

Hyaluronic Acid in action:

  1. Hydration: One of the key properties of hyaluronic acid is its capacity to attract and hold water. Hence the ability to bind to water molecules, helping to keep the skin well-hydrated.

  2. Humectant: Hyaluronic acid acts as a humectant, drawing moisture from the surroundings and deeper layers of the skin to the surface. This helps maintain a balanced and moisturized complexion.

  3. Plumping Effect: When applied topically, hyaluronic acid can give the skin a plump and revitalized appearance by temporarily filling in fine lines and wrinkles. This plumping effect is due to the increased water content in the skin.

  4. Supports Collagen Production: Hyaluronic acid contributes to the overall health of the skin by promoting collagen synthesis. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin, helping to maintain its firmness.

  5. Suitable for Various Skin Types: Hyaluronic acid is generally well-tolerated by various skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin. It is lightweight, doesn't clog pores and with minimal risk for allergic reaction, making it a versatile ingredient in skincare formulations.

  6. Versatile Application: Hyaluronic acid is found in a variety of skincare products, including serums, moisturizers, and toners. It is often used in both daytime and nighttime routines.

Ultimately, the first step to a skincare that simply works is hydration. Both glycerin and hyaluronic acid are great starter ingredients to build your very own solid skincare regimen to achieve glowing skin without any tricks, filters or extravagant skincare.
