Is your skin itchy? Dry? Is the winter dryness causing your skin to dehydrate? Does it feel a little tight? Well, there’s a solution to your every skin problem here. Hyaluronic acid can help you with all that and even more. You may have heard or read about this ingredient somewhere, but do you actually know what it is?

Hyaluronic acid for dry skin during winters is the key to keeping it hydrated and moisturised. However, do we know the purpose it serves for our skin? Well, it is produced by fibroblasts. It is the key molecule in skin moisture because it absorbs up to 1000 times its weight in water. Think of it as sponge in your skin that holds on to moisture and keeps your face looking plump and dewy.

For this very reason, it’s best to use this to avoid winter dryness because our skin doesn’t produce as much as moisture in the winters.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid does not naturally occur on your skins surface, but when it’s applied, it is a wonderful moisturizing ingredient. It is nothing but a big drink of water for your face that softens fine lines while making your skin look firmer as it smoothens out even and rough patches. Not only that, it also plumps and adds volume to your skin cells to make it more radiant and smooth.

This ingredient comes in the form of serums, sleeping masks, and even an essence.

How do you use Hyaluronic Acid for dry skin?

This very ingredient typically has a watery texture and absorbs quickly in comparison to creams that are thicker and stay more on the skins surface. Hyaluronic acid seals moisture that is already there so it doesn’t evaporate.

But one thing to remember – it is important to combine hyaluronic acid with a more thicker texture so as to retain the moisture, in order to avoid winter dryness. Which means topping off a hyaluronic acid serum with an oil or a cream to make the results last. However, there are some creams and sleeping masks that have hyaluronic acid already present in them. But using a serum as well as a moisturiser separately have more powerful levels of active ingredients and then applying a cream can be used as a veil of protection.

Picking the right Hyaluronic Acid

This can be a tricky task, the molecules inside of this ingredient is often too large to effectively deliver hydration deep into skin layers and it’s hard to know if the product uses micronized particles suited to our skin needs.

Now something that you’ll totally be amused to know, hyaluronic acid is a good antibacterial agent on the skin to help heal wounds like burns and skin ulcers. This magical ingredient not only makes your skin look radiant and smooth but also cures any kind of rashes and blemishes on your skin.

It can also hydrate the eyes when used in eye drops. Pretty surprising, isn’t it?

Leaving aside that, this all in one ingredient is often also used as a primer before applying any kind of makeup.

3 tips for making any hyaluronic acid more effective and suitable for winter dry skin 
1. Smooth it on damp skin

Think of your face as a sponge, when it’s wet, it’s more receptive to absorbing whatever comes its way. Applying hyaluronic acid products when skin is slightly damp after cleansing or showering will help bind water to the skin and enhance the hydrating effects.

2. Top it off

As above mentioned, seal in hyaluronic acid with another product such as a moisturiser or oil. Otherwise, if you go into an environment with dry air, it can actually pull hydration from your skin, especially during winters.
