January blues seem to hit even harder when you wake up with dry, aggravated skin due to the freezing temperatures.

However, Perricone MD’s skincare is here to hydrate; using science-backed technology, discover refined, supple and visibly plumped skin. 

Here’s some expert advice from Perricone MD’s Director of Education, Rosalba Martone. Find out what Hyaluronic Acid is, to the benefits and top tips, particularly the benefits for our skin barrier this Winter. 

What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)? 

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that the skin produces an abundance of when we are born. However, our bodies naturally deplete this important molecule as we age. When synthetic Hyaluronic Acid is applied topically to the skin, the body recognises Hyaluronic Acid as its own, which leads to dramatic results in a short amount of time.” 

So, what is the importance of HA? 

“Two key responsibilities of Hyaluronic Acid serums are to ensure the skin locks in moisture and also to also keep environmental aggressors such as sun damage, pollutants, chemical irritants and allergens out.”  

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for the skin barrier? 

“A weakened skin barrier can result in a range of skin concerns such as skin sensitivity, inflammation, acne flare ups, congestion, lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and enlarged pores. So, a key benefit of hyaluronic acid serum is that it strengthens and protects the moisture barrier, important for the skin to be hydrated.”  

Who should be using HA in their routine? 

“Hyaluronic Acid is tremendous for any age group and any concern, so it should be considered if you want to strengthen your skin barrier. As it’s preventative and corrective, every single person can benefit from hyaluronic acid.”  

Where in your skincare routine should you use Hyaluronic Acid serum? 

“Hyaluronic Acid binds to moisture so the Hyaluronic Serum needs to be applied to damp skin, either straight after cleansing or by spraying with a light mist. Press the HA Serum into the skin and massage. To seal in moisture, apply a moisturiser and then a face oil over the top, to create a Hyaluronic sandwich. Applying Hyaluronic Acid to dry skin can have the reverse effect”
