Hyaluronic Acid in Skin Care: What You Need to Know

It doesn’t take a skin care lover to notice or hear about the endless trends and ingredients that seem to show up in new products everywhere we look. Today we’re going to dive deeper into an all-star ingredient that isn’t necessarily new to the scene, BUT is one that’s grabbing our attention and taking over the skincare world: Hyaluronic Acid! 

We’ve seen this acid show up in serums, masks, lip products, oral supplements, and the list goes on! Here at Blume, we know *and love* this fast-acting ingredient for the way it works in our Whirl Moisturizer. We’ve rounded up all the facts for you below.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

Did you know? Hyaluronic Acid is something your body produces naturally, usually in places like your eyes and joints (it’s even a building block in your dermisa layer in your skin)! Its transparent and gooey consistency is known for its ability to retain water for ultimate hydration, leaving you with healthy and super plump looking skin. Plump skin = goodbye fine lines and wrinkles (AKA why people rave about it so much). Yay to a naturally occurring substance that brings us closer to our skin goals! 

Why Hyaluronic Acid is in Skin Care

THE BIG QUESTION. You’re probably wondering, if it occurs naturally then why do we need products for it? Fun fact we learned from TikTok’s fave skin care bestie: Hyram (@skincarebyhyram), is that Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water… (WHAT???) But as we get older our bodies seem to produce less of it. This is why we implement Hyaluronic into our skin care routines, to bump up our hydration game to the next level, at any age. If you’re anything like usyou love alllll the hydration you can get!  

Best Way To Use Hyaluronic Acid

We love using a Hyaluronic Acid moisturizer because it holds onto water, bringing hydration to the skin. Whirl Moisturizer is a great choice because it also uses other gentle (and effective) ingredients like grapeseed oil + prickly pear seed oil to lock in the moisture all day long. The best part? There’s also rosehip and skullcap root extract that create a powerhouse duo for reducing redness and inflammation. Together, these natural ingredients will leave your skin noticeably more hydrated, smooth, and supple! 

*Pro tip: If you’re like our team and you have dry (but also acne-prone) skin, and you’re tired of zit creams leaving you more dry, red, flakey, and irritated—we’ve got the trick for you. Try mixing in 1 pump of Meltdown acne oil for acne-prone skin with your hyaluronic acid Whirl Moisturizer to reap all the benefits we talked about before, plus say goodbye to acne spots + stubborn scars!
