This is going to be an extra-informative post on benefits of Hyaluronic acid, which is quite a rage among the skincare industry. Be it anti-aging serums or moisturizers, this wonder ingredient is used by several big brands. Let’s read on to know more about its beauty benefits and how to incorporate in your skincare routine. Also there is a product review on Hyalugel by Ethicare Remedies that follows.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, a very long chain of disaccharides (sugars) present in all connective tissues that is responsible for retaining moisture. It is one of the main components of our extracellular matrix or the framework in which the skin cells sit. It has great capacity to hold water. Studies have found that, merely one gram of pure hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water. One molecule alone can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Almost 50 percent of the hyaluronic acid in found in our skin and it degrades bit by bit everyday. This helps in retaining the moisture in the skin and making it look hydrated with a youthful glow!
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid has shown dramatic results in reducing the fine lines and wrinkles by smoothing it out from inside the skin layers. It keeps the skin moisturized and reduces the appearance of aging signs. The moisture-binding ability of this magical ingredient makes it viable for achieving firmness and pliability.
The moisture retention increases and the toxins and free-radicals are automatically eliminated by the regular usage of hyaluronic acid. It stimulates collagen-production and makes the skin tissues more flexible. This is proven to be highly beneficial in boosting glow in dull and lifeless skin-types.
3. Sensitive Skincare
Hyaluronic acid is mild and soothing to sensitive skin. It reduces the redness and itchiness caused due to irritants like chemicals or pollen. It calms down the bumps and is helpful in reducing the blemishes.
4. Dry-Skin Care
During winter, our skin tends to lose moisture and feels stretchy. This imbalances the natural pH of the skin and break-outs may aggravate acne and break-outs. Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin hydrated with optimum levels of moisture. It locks in moisture so that the skin does not feel dry during cold weather.
5. Oily-Skin Care
Oily-skin is the result of excess production of oils by the sebaceous glands underneath our skin. Many of us think that drying out the skin by harsh chemical treatments will help. In fact, doing so will aggravate the oil glands and may lead to acne problems. Hyaluronic acid keeps the sebum secretion in check and replenishes the skin. It keeps the skin soft and supple along with keeping acne at bay.

My Take On Hyalugel
I have a combination skin more on the oily side though. My skin tends to breakout badly during PMS and weather changes. It is extremely sensitive to indirect Sunlight and chemical treatments. I got in my Fabbag a while ago and didn’t try it for almost a month because I was skeptic about using a medicine-like tube on my face. But I still gathered the courage to try it once when I knew that I am not going out the whole day. Ethicare Remedies is a well-known brand and I’ve read nice things about their products. 😛 On the first touch it felt like a clear jelly-like things which felt a bit cool. I massaged it on my face and it got absorbed in seconds leaving my skin look soft and supple. I loved the dewy glow it gave despite how dull the skin looks during PMS. I started to use it as a regular moisturizer under my SPFs, BB/CC creams, foundation, etc. Sometime I liked it without anything on it. The pores certainly looked minimized and the little white bumps on my skin almost vanished. Hyalugel by Ethicare Remedies is the best thing I’ve added to my skincare routine! 🙂
Let me sum up the Pros and Cons as I always do it for you,
♥ Decent packaging
♥ Travel-friendly pack
♥ Easy on the pocket
♥ Minimizes pores
♥ Controls sebum
♥ Gets absorbed easily
♥ Moisturizes well
♥ Keeps the skin soft and supple
♥ Improves skin elasticity
♥ Prevent acne
🙁 The only con is it is not so easily available offline or in stores, which is a solvable problem with so many online stores to the rescue!
