Hyaluronic acid is excellent for hydrating dry skin, and that is why it should be an essential part of your skincare routine. But there’s more to this amazing ingredient than hydration. Come explore this wonder ingredient, how it works, and why and how it should be incorporated into your routine for best effect. Finally, we will talk about Fait avec Coeur’s Hyaluronic Acid Intense Soothing Serum, and why it would make a great addition to your skincare regime.
How Hyaluronic Acid Works
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, thick liquid that is naturally present in your body. When applied topically, it works by absorbing moisture and allowing your skin to pull it deep down, where it keeps your skin hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid also prevents moisture loss from skin, thus keeping your skin moist for longer.
While there are other ingredients that do the same job, hyaluronic acid is especially great at it. It’s a bit of a superhero of hydration, in fact. Studies have found that each molecule of hyaluronic acid can hold as much as ten times its weight in water! This means it can retain a lot of moisture – more compared to many other beauty products.
Oral supplements and certain foods such as soy, citrus and leafy greens contain hyaluronic acid, too. But if you’re looking for the best skin benefits, you’d do best to stick to a topical application, such as a serum, because then its beneficial effects are concentrated on your skin, and it can be 20-40 times more effective than if you were to take an oral supplement.
The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
What does hyaluronic acid do for your skin and body? Here are just a few of the benefits that come with total hyaluronic hydration:
It offers a more youthful appearance
Dry skin loses its pliability, appears flaky, and begins to dull, so rehydrating your face will immediately replenish your youthful appearance. Anti-ageing creams and treatments often use hyaluronic acid as an ingredient because locking in moisture is extremely important when you want your skin to look younger.
- It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Wrinkles and fine lines are much more apparent on dry skin, because the skin isn’t as plump and smooth. With your skin cells rejuvenated and plump, your skin will be smoothed out, and those wrinkles won’t show up quite as much, thus turning back the clock on your face!
- It makes your skin feel softer
Dry skin can feel papery and brittle. Fresh, youthful skin, on the other hand, feels plump. soft, and firm. If your skin looks great but feels unpleasant, it may be because it’s a little dry. Applying a hyaluronic acid serum will help with that. It will give your skin a pleasant firmness which will make it feel soft to the touch.
- It makes your skin healthier and offers advanced healing properties
Hydrated skin doesn’t just look better, it’s also healthier. Besides, hyaluronic acid contains antioxidants which do a lot of good things for your skin – protecting from daily UV damage, pollution, healing wounds and infections. So, apply a hyaluronic acid serum regularly to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. In fact, the Fait avec Coeur formulation is one of the most effective serum on the market because it has been designed with the unique healing, hydrating and barrier building benefits of six varying sizes of Sodium Hyaluronate. This includes 110,000 daltons Sodium Hyaluronate. These unique healing benefits can only come from a synergistic combination of varying sizes of Sodium Hyaluronate.

- It helps reduce acne
Acne occurs when your sebum production gets out of hand, which often happens when your skin gets too dry. So, to control acne, use a hydrating ingredient such as hyaluronic acid (also called hyaluronan). Breakouts and pimples will soon become a thing of the past, and you won’t have to use makeup anymore to hide your acne.
- It boosts your self-esteem
Youthful looking skin may look good on the outside, but what really matters is how you feel about yourself – and if your skin looks younger and healthier, you will feel more confident, and you will have increased self-esteem. This is a powerful benefit of using hyaluronic acid.
Additional benefits of hyaluronic acid prevents your skin from being damaged as easily,, and it’s protected better against environmental factors such as pollution. Suffice it to say that including hyaluronic acid in your skincare regime is a good idea. Now let’s talk about how to do it!
Including Hyaluronic Acid in Your Skincare Routine
Using hyaluronic acid is very easy. It comes in serum form, which is easy to use. Start by washing and lightly drying your skin, making sure it’s still slightly damp. Then squeeze out a couple drops of serum onto your hand and pat them gently onto your skin, padding them in using an upward motion. You shouldn’t apply any pressure – do it very gently. Avoid rubbing it near the eyes. And that’s all there is to it!
There are a couple best practices that you can follow to make the application more effective. The first, as we’ve mentioned, is applying hyaluronic acid when your skin is slightly moist. Here are a couple others:
- Using moisturizer afterwards
Think of it as layering. First you have a fine layer of water, then you have hyaluronic acid, and finally you have moisturizer, which seals it all in. If you use heavy, oil-based moisturizer, it’s especially important to remember and use it after you apply the serum. Oil forms a protective covering that prevents water loss, but it also prevents other products from soaking into your skin.
- Using other products
Skincare isn’t as simple as applying one product and calling it a day. We recommend that you work other beneficial ingredients or products into your skincare routine, and this will help your skin quality improve a lot faster. Retinol and vitamin C serum are good ideas – they’re both strong ingredients, but they have similar age-delaying properties, which is good news for your skin.
Keep these best practices in mind, store the product properly and avoid using it after it has expired, so you can reap maximum benefits from your application of hyaluronic acid.
