Hyaluronic Acid Serum: How It's Hugely Benefitted My Skin

I made it my goal this year to improve my skincare routine and invest in it. Before the end of last year, I bought Caroline Hirons' skinCARE book and it's been like my skincare bible. Thanks to reading it religiously over the period of a week, I've really upped my skincare game. Caroline's advice is so valuable and you can read about what I learned from her book here. One of the best pieces of advice I took from that book was to start using...hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced in your body (your fact for the day). When it comes to hyaluronic acid in skincare, people automatically think that it comes in a serum bottle. Surprisingly though, it can come in the form of a supplement. Personally, the serum is the better option. 


The main function of hyaluronic acid is to retain water to keep your skin lubricated and moisturised. It's a good investment if you feel you have dry skin. Hyaluronic acid is a perfect investment for your winter skincare. You know what it's like, the Winter comes around and your skin starts to feel as dry as sandpaper. So hyaluronic acid is just a godsend during the winter months!


I started implementing hyaluronic acid into my skincare routine a few weeks ago now and I have definitely noticed a difference in how my skin feels. My skin now feels incredibly supple, smoother and moisturised. There are so many benefits to using this acid in your skincare routine -

Hyaluronic acid helps with -

  • Anti-ageing 
  • Moisturising skin
  • Reduces wrinkles
  • Treat facial redness
There are other benefits to using it, but the benefits I've listed above are the main ones for me.

Now I've incorporated hyaluronic acid into my skincare routine, I won't let it leave my skincare routine, like, ever. It has been so beneficial for my skin and I wish to god I had started using it sooner. I think I always thought that it was one of those overexaggerated skincare trends that didn't really work. I don't like to prove myself wrong, but in this case, I'm glad I did!


There are many skincare brands that sell their own hyaluronic acid, so have a look around at the reviews and recommendations before buying your first serum. I can't really recommend the best one until I've tried a few more. But I suppose they all do the same job anyway, so I think it's just up to you how much you're willing to spend. 


All I will say is that if you're not using this in your skincare routine, please do. It's honestly the best decision I have ever made with my skincare and like I said, I wish I had started using it sooner.

  15. Love this post - I also swear by Caroline Hirons' book and general advice. I have a love/hate relationship with hyaluronic acid. Even though it's such a simple ingredient, my skin is quite fussy and I definitely think it's hard to find the perfect formulation. I enjoy the Medik8 Hydr8 B5, and also The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics - which one has been your fave so far?

    1. Like you, I swear by Caroline's advice as it's always spot on! I'm glad that you have found two HA that suit your skin, at the moment, I'm using the Lily Glow by Lily England HA serum and I'm loving it! I need to try more though to find my absolute favourite!
