Hyaluronic Acid: An Important Rule and 3 Tips for Superior Hydration.

Superior Hydration With Miloon's Advice.

You probably know what hyaluronic acid is, but we’re sure you don’t know that there is one important rule and at least three tips for superior hydration. These are other ways of using it to get the maximum benefit for your skin. Probably some of the tricks you’ll read will be really new to you, because they come from the intrinsic characteristics of this important molecule. But we can bet that it is your skin that will make all the difference. Are you ready to be surprised with the best ways to maximise the hydration of hyaluronic acid and the mistakes you should absolutely avoid?

Hyaluronic Acid: The King of Hydration.

It doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about Korean or Western cosmetics.  Hyaluronic acid is perhaps the most famous and celebrated ingredient by brands, beauty bloggers and consumers all over the world.

Before discovering the rule and 3 tips for using this natural molecule to keep your skin looking young and moisturised, let’s take a closer look at what it consists of.

Hyaluronic acid is often placed at the top of the list of must-have ingredients. This molecule is naturally present in the skin to maintain its elasticity and preserve its youthful appearance.

But here’s a bit of technical background. We have recently described in an article what the functional components of a moisturiser are. You can read more about this here.

In general, due to the medium size of its molecule, hyaluronic acid falls into the category of humectants. These are those ingredients that work like a sponge to help the skin retain water and leave it soft and moist.

Hyaluronic acid enters the myth because of its immense moisturising power. Its ability to absorb water is incredible. Suffice it to say that sodium hyaluronate is made with about 1% sodium and 99% water. Furthermore, research suggests that this wow ingredient can help protect your skin from pollutants.

While hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the skin, it goes without saying that as we age, our natural levels of this substance are slowly depleted, resulting in dullness, loss of skin tone and more furrowed wrinkles.

We conclude by saying that iauronic acid is good for all skin types, especially when in serum form, so it can be more easily absorbed and help fill in the skin in depth.

Now you know exactly what hyaluronic acid is and how it works. But what would you say if we told you that you might not always have applied it correctly? Let’s take a look at what to do and what mistakes to avoid in order to maximise the effect of Korean cosmetics based on this amazing wow ingredient.

The One Rule of Hyaluronic Acid? Always apply it to damp skin!

It would seem incredible. When hyaluronic acid is applied to a dry face, you run the risk of getting the opposite of the desired effect and this may actually leave your skin more dehydrated. But why does this happen?

Hyaluronic acid behaves with moisture like a magnet with iron: it attracts it very strongly. Consequently, when applied to dry skin, it acts by attracting to itself, on the surface, every last trace of moisture from deep within the skin, risking, absurdly, generating dryness.  From this macro-rule, here is a series of tips for maximising the moisturising power of hyaluronic acid.

Tip: Apply Hyaluronic Acid to the face while it is still wet from the Toner, Essence or Face Mist.

As we have said, when hyaluronic acid comes into contact with water, your skin will be extremely moisturised and plumped up. Therefore, it is important to always apply it to moist skin.
So the moisturising power of hyaluronic acid increases dramatically if the application of hyaluronic acid follows nebulisation.

Hyaluronic acid itself does not contain water. Consequently, the more moisture it can bind to, the greater its effect will be.

Spray your face with water or face mist, apply your hyaluronic acid treatment and then spray again to continue your routine.

Another good rule of thumb is to apply the hyaluronic acid to skin that is still wet after cleansing or tonic or even essence.

Tip: Use products with hyaluronic acid molecules in different sizes to combine moisturiser and serum in the same product.

Perhaps not everyone knows that there are different sizes of hyaluronic acid molecules and that each one is perfect for penetrating and moisturising different layers of the dermis. We start with the larger ones, active on the surface, and then move on to the smaller ones, perfect for the deeper layers. In this way you will have achieved the hydration level of an a cream and a serum.

Here’s a product that might be right for you. Waterfall Moist Balanced Hyaluronic Acid 100 is an ampoule containing 100% pure sodium hyaluronate, a stable, water-soluble form of hyaluronic acid that also has smaller hyaluronic acid molecules to better penetrate the skin and replenish it with moisture. Just a few drops help to plump and hydrate the skin, making it appear smoother and firmer over time. This powerful booster infuses the skin with intense hydration without using harsh ingredients or potential irritants such as parabens, artificial fragrances, silicones, surfactants and mineral oils.

Tip: Always take care of the skin on other parts of the body with Hyaluronic Acid.

It goes without saying that hyaluronic acid is good for all tissues, and applying it replenishes the natural level of hyaluronic acid in the skin. So, yes to hyaluronic acid products for lips and hair. But always remember to add water.
