Why You Should Be Using Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer Vs. Oil Based

Do you suffer from dry skin? If so, you are probably using a moisturizer to remedy the problem. Many moisturizers are oil based, intending to replace the oils that your skin is not producing naturally. Some moisturizers, however, are hyaluronic acid based. Hyaluronic acid is better for your skin for several reasons.

Hyaluronic Acid Is Natural

Your body already has stores of hyaluronic acid, and about half of it is in your skin. Hyaluronic acid is what keeps skin hydrated and moisturized, as well as smooth and supple. As we age, our stores and production of hyaluronic acid decrease, sometimes considerably. This leads to the signs of aging that we all begin to notice around our mid-30s to 40s. Hyaluronic acid moisturizers supplement this natural element in your skin to boost your skin health.

Clearer Skin

You are more likely to have clearer skin when you use a hyaluronic acid moisturizer. Oil-based moisturizers can sometimes clog the pores and cause acne breakouts. People with sensitive skin may experience frequent redness or dermatitis. All of these issues are resolved with hyaluronic acid. Studies have proven that hyaluronic acid applied topically will reduce redness and dermatitis.


Hyaluronic acid is being used in a number of wrinkle creams, facials, and dermal fillers due to its ability to reverse the signs of aging. Research suggests that hyaluronic acid applied topically will make skin look smoother and more supple. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are also very effective at firming skin.
