What's The Beauty Acid?

Let's talk about acids today

“Acid” becomes all the rage skincare beauty word. It is the go-to word to search for your beauty needs for whatever skin problems you have.

One "Holy Grail" of anti-aging ingredient is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has the structure of acid but it is not an exfoliating acid.

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool.

Why Hyaluronic Acid should be in your skincare routine?

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist.  It is really a good ingredient to have in your skincare products for every skin type.  Hydration and moisturize skin is much healthier and reduce other skin problems.  After all, skin ability to heal becomes slower than snail if your skin is dry along with sort of other problems such as wrinkles or fine lines appearing before you are even 40.

There are 3 types of hyaluronic acid
  1. hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid
  2. sodium acetylated hyaluronate
  3. sodium hyaluronate

You don’t need all three to appear in all your skincare products.  I prefer sodium hyaluronate though.  Hyaluronic acid in your skincare will make sure that the products are not drying for your skin.

Here are some product recommendations for all skin types.

If thick moisturizer is not your thing but you do not want to leave your skin feeling like a desert, then how about this famous slight viscosity toner that does not contain any essential oil and it fragrance-free to moisturize your skin. The hyaluronic acid inside this toner just makes your skin hydrated without the heavy feeling of thick cream.

The most popular HG even among beauty influencers. It contains 96% snail mucin extract and hyaluronic acid that moisturizes the skin, repair and improving elasticity from within. It is made for sensitive skin

This is the Korean version of the famous hyaluronic acid in the form of ampoule that contains all the 3 types of hyaluronic acid which is just perfect for your dry skin. It can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to plump them up. It also contains panthenol and arginine for a protective moisture barrier.

Here comes light, non-greasy texture moisturizer that contains an orchid extract that grows in Jeju Island, a place so rich in volcanic soil.  Combined with hyaluronic acid and squalane, powerful anti-aging that keeps your skin firmness and elasticity.

Never go out of the house without wearing sunscreen to prevent skin damage.  This sunscreen smells like a bed of roses.  With hyaluronic acid inside this sunscreen, this is a no white cast sunscreen that also hydrate your skin while protecting your skin from the harmful rays.
