You probably already know how major of an ingredient hyaluronic acid, also known as HA, has become in the last few years. Nowadays, you can’t walk into Sephora without spotting this powerhouse as the ingredient in so many skincare products or even makeup products. There are hyaluronic acid serums, masks, moisturisers – it’s there are even hyaluronic acid foundations and hair treatments. And trust us, it’s worth the hype. But why is it so popular?

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means that it can attract moisture from its surroundings, and it does a really good job at retaining the moisture, too. It’s actually naturally found in the fluids of our eyes and joints, and of course, it’s also found in skin. When used in skincare, hyaluronic acid can help restore hydration, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and leave your skin looking super dewy and healthy. Plus, it can also help to repair the skin barrier, which in turn helps to reduce acne. There’s absolutely no downside to using hyaluronic acid, and we love that for her.

Hyaluronic acid is not corrosive at all, unlike what the name might suggest, and it’s completely safe for all skin types. You can use it in the morning and at night, and most experts would even recommend using it twice a day for maximum hydration. It’s an amazing ingredient if you have dry or dehydrated skin, and even if you don’t, you’ll still definitely get that dewy, hydrated skin. And trust us, once you have hydrated skin, literally all your skin problems will go away.

Now that we know all about hyaluronic acid and all the good that comes with it, let’s check out the best hyaluronic acid serums in Malaysia so you can start incorporating this star ingredient into your skincare routine ASAP.
