Best Hyaluronic Acid Serums: A Guide to Hyaluronic Acid Serums in Australia
Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most well-known skincare ingredients, but what is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant, meaning it attracts water and moisture into the skin. It is a naturally occurring substance found in the body, and helps provide that plump look and feel to the skin. Some benefits include, hydrating skin, boosting moisture content and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Despite having acid in its name, it is not an acid. It is suitable for all types of skin and works well with ingredients like Vitamin C, Glycolic Acid and Vitamin B5.
As we age, our body naturally produces less and less hyaluronic acid, and overtime, this results in loss of skin firmness.
So how can we fix this? By implementing a hydrating serum into your skincare routine, you can expect moisturised and plump skin, enhanced moisture retention, improved skin texture, with a reduction in the appearance of fine lines.

What does hyaluronic acid do?
Hyaluronic Acid holds a thousand times its weight in water, which helps our skin retain moisture and prevents it from evaporating. This leads to visibly reduced fine lines and wrinkles, which creates a plumping effect. When the skin is hydrated and protected, it increases the production of skin cells, leading to plumper and smoother skin.
Can I use hyaluronic acid at night?
Yes, it is safe to use Hyaluronic Acid both day and night.
Is it safe to use hyaluronic acid serum everyday?
Yes, it is safe to use Hyaluronic Acid serum everyday. Ensure it is applied onto clean skin and followed by moisturiser to lock it in.
How do you apply hyaluronic acid serum?
It is best to apply Hyaluronic Acid onto damp skin as it draws moisture from the environment. By applying it onto damp skin, it gives it more water to grab onto.
However, it is not necessary. It can also be applied to dry skin. It is recommended to try both ways to see which works best for your skin.
Can I use other products with hyaluronic acid serums?
