Hyaluronic Acid Lotion
By now you probably already know the amazing benefits that hyaluronic acid offers. Being that it works so well on the face, it only makes sense to have a hyaluronic acid lotion to moisturize the body, right? Well that may seem like common sense, but because this ingredient is costlier to produce and the fact that lotion bottles are at least several ounces big, many skin care companies have held back on making a lotion. However there are a few currently on the market, which we well discuss in a moment.
How hyaluronic acid nourishes the skin
What’s so amazing about this ingredient is that it basically acts as a magnet to suck up water (and therefore, offer major moisturization). The most incredible part is to what degree it does this… reportedly it can absorb water up to one thousand times its own weight! This is why the best anti aging creams for the face use it. But it can work just as well when you use it on the body.
How to buy hyaluronic acid lotion
As mentioned, there are many companies that make it yet since it’s so expensive to make. Fortunately, there are a few products out there, like iS Clinical skincare, JuJu Cosmetics, and Sircuit Skin. I imagine in the near future more companies will start making hyaluronic acid lotion, because there’s definitely a demand for it. For now, the only place you can buy it is online through specialty skin care retailers. You may find something at the drugstore that claims to be a hyaluronic acid lotion, but if you look on the label, you will see it only contains a percent or two of this ingredient.
How to use hyaluronic acid lotion
Because it will cost more than your typical run-of-the-mill lotion, you will want to use it accordingly. With cheap lotion, you probably don’t mind slathering it on and having it rub off on clothes since it’s so inexpensive. With hyaluronic lotion, you will want to be a bit more careful. What I do is apply it after I get out of the shower and dry off. Before getting dressed, I wait until the lotion has had time to dry and be absorbed by my skin.
