Hyaluronic acid is one of the most effective ingredients for skin hydration as it has the ability to retain up to 10 times its own weight in water. Hyaluronic acid makes the skin hydrated, smooth and plump. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the skin, so it helps to maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance. All skin types, from oily to sensitive, can benefit from moisturising. Hyaluronic acid is not an exfoliating acid, despite its name, so you can safely use it in your skincare routine every morning and evening. Hyaluronic acid has a larger molecular size, so it acts on the surface layers of the skin. It forms a moisturising film on the surface of the skin, from which moisture is released throughout the day.
Hydrolysed hyaluronic acid
Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid is a hyaluronic acid that has been broken down into smaller particles so that it is absorbed more effectively into the skin. This allows it to hydrate the deeper layers of the skin for a long time.
Glycerin is one of the most common hydrating ingredients used in skincare, and for a good reason! It hydrates the skin effectively and strengthens the skin barrier while helping the skin stay hydrated for a long time.
Watermelon is a delicious, summery fruit packed with vitamins, antioxidants – and of course, plenty of water. Watermelon extract is rich in vitamins (A, B and C) and amino acids that are beneficial to the skin, moisturising, brightening and soothing. Thanks to its high water content, watermelon is a highly moisturising ingredient that also helps to smooth fine lines. In Korea, watermelon has been used in skincare for generations. For example, watermelon is used to soothe irritated or sunburnt skin. Watermelon extract soothes skin irritation, reduces redness and speeds up skin regeneration.
