Hyaluronic acid, also known as HA, is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. It’s a type of carbohydrate that acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for our joints, nerves, and skin. But did you know that it also has amazing skin benefits when used in skincare products?
First things first, let’s talk about what exactly hyaluronic acid is. It’s a substance that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it a super effective moisturizer for the skin. It can penetrate deep into the skin and provide hydration where it’s needed most. This is especially beneficial for dry, dehydrated, or mature skin as it can help plump fine lines and wrinkles and give a more youthful appearance.
But that’s not all; hyaluronic acid can also help improve your skin’s overall appearance by keeping it smooth, supple, and radiant. It can also help to boost collagen production, which is essential for firm, bouncy skin. And if you’re struggling with acne or other skin issues, hyaluronic acid can help to soothe and calm irritated skin.
How To Use
You might be wondering how to use hyaluronic acid in your skincare routine. The good news is that it’s a versatile ingredient that can be used in various ways. You can find it in serums, moisturizers, masks, and even in some makeup products. You can apply it directly to your skin after cleansing or mix it with your moisturizer for an extra boost of hydration.
Here is our recommended skincare routine:
- Use this serum after toner. Try our Multi-Active Toner.
- Apply 4-5 drops of serum to your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. Using your fingertips, pat serum onto the skin, then smooth it outward.
- Ensure your entire face gets coverage.
- Let the formula absorb on its own.
- Layer with any of your other favorite Secret Beauty Club serums or treatments.

The Side Effects
But like any skincare ingredient, there can be some side effects. Although hyaluronic acid is generally considered to be safe for most people, some people may experience mild redness, itching, or dryness when first using it. If you’re prone to sensitive skin, it’s best to patch-test it before applying it all over your face. Also, if you’re allergic to hyaluronan, you should avoid products containing hyaluronic acid.
In conclusion, hyaluronic acid is a game-changer for your skincare routine. It’s a powerful ingredient that can provide intense hydration, plump up fine lines, and improve the overall appearance of your skin. So go ahead, give it a try and see the difference it can make for yourself. Your skin will thank you!
