If your skin is dehydrated, that means your skin is lacking water. Dehydrated skin can be dry and itchy with dull skin complexion while fine lines can be more visible. However, do not mix it up with dry skin. Dehydrated skin is when your skin lacks water which is a skin condition. Meanwhile, dry skin is a skin type as it lacks natural oil. Products that contain Hyaluronic Acid or have hydrating properties are excellent for dehydrated skin as they help plump the skin to prevent dehydration and moisture loss.

Hyaluronic Acid - The Elixir for Hydrated, Supple Skin

Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient that you probably have heard of in Korean skincare products, especially those that provide your skin with deep hydration. Did you know that the hyaluronic acid molecule is able to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water? Known for its amazing water retention properties, it is definitely a must-have in your summer skincare routine to keep your skin well hydrated, supple and smooth. Despite its name, hyaluronic acid is not actually an acid. In fact, it is a naturally occurring sugar which we can find in our body parts that require constant lubrication and hydration like our joints, skin and eyes.
