Hyaluronic acid or HA has now become a must have in every skin routine. If you have not included it in your routine then now is the time to start.
Did you know that our skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid? But it does not produce enough. Which is why we need supplements which will quench our skin's need for this ingredient.
But before that you ask what is hyaluronic acid? And if it is an acid, does it mean it exfoliates?
The answer to that is despite having acid in its name it does not exfoliate. In fact it is one of the best ways to keep your skin hydrated. HA is naturally made by our skin and is a natural moisturizer for our skin. It helps to attract water to your skin to make sure your skin is hydrated and plump. This is what makes HA so good in keeping your skin hydrated.
A lot of people believe that only dry skin people need HA to hydrate their skin. It is quite the contrary, this is an ingredient that is great for all skin types even oily skin types. People mistaken hydration is the same as nutrition. The first being related to water and the second to oil. However, oily skin tends to be dehydrated as well because people tend to over cleanse and not apply proper hydrating products. However finding the right product for your skin and budget is not always easy so I have found the top hyaluronic acid products for your budget.
