It's official - Kbeauty is obsessed with hyaluronic acid and so are we. What are the best K-Beauty hyaluronic acid products on the market? Let's take a look!
Firstly, let's go back to basics with a simple question - what is HA?
If you answered an “acid”, you’d be wrong.
Unlike the name suggests, it's is actually a humectant (a molecule that attracts water).
It’s a different category than actual acids like BHAs, AHAs etc. Unlike them, hyaluronic acid is actually naturally found in the skin as well as the connective tissues in the body. It acts as a cushioning and lubricant for joints, nerves, hair, skin, and eyes.
Part of the reason young skin is so smooth and elastic is because it naturally contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid, which helps it stay healthy. Hyaluronic acid is even used in lip fillers because it is great for plumping.
One gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water.
This ability allows it to fill up the spaces between the collagen and elastin in the skin, which helps skin stay supple. It also prevents wrinkles forming in dry skin.
This also makes hyaluronic acid great for moisturising skin.
In fact, dehydration is one of the main reasons behind skin ageing. That's hhy yaluronic acid – which attracts moisture to your skin—is a must-have ingredient when it comes to anti aging. It is also essential for repairing your moisture barrier.
This newly released APLB Essence is infused with Glutathione (100ppm), Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid (100ppm) and more to provide elasticity and nutrition for youthful looking skin.
