The Role Of Hyaluronic Acid In Hydrating Skincare

The Role Of Hyaluronic Acid In Hydrating Skincare

  • By Srishty Singh

Hydration is key for healthy skin. It ensures your skin's youthful appearance by combating fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles. But that is not all. Hydration maintains a balanced skin microbiome, ensures accelerated healing and offsets inflammation or redness – among other things. It also plays a pivotal role in upholding the lipid barrier that serves as your body’s first line of defence. So, you can only imagine what the lack of adequate moisture content in your skin can cause.  

If you want that one ingredient that ensures long-lasting and multi-level hydration, might we suggest Hyaluronic Acid for your vanity?

 Hydration Vs Moisturization: What Does Your Skin Need?

Even the most seasoned skincare enthusiasts make this rookie mistake – use the terms hydration and moisturization interchangeably. To dispel all clouds of confusion, we delve deep into the difference between the two. 

Moisturization: Moisturization helps create a protective barrier on the skin that prevents TEWL or transepidermal water loss. Moreover, the process puts a big, sturdy lock on any active-infused treatments or serums you may be administering to your skin. 

Hydration: Hydration helps replenish your skin’s water reservoir. This is where humectants like Hyaluronic Acid come into the picture. 

If you are wondering which one you need in your daily skincare – the simple answer is both. To reiterate, hydration is indispensable for your skin’s health. But all efforts for skin hydration become futile if you don’t have a moisturizer to seal the water bank. 

Conclusion: The most efficacious ingredient to ensure sustained and multi-level hydration to the skin is Hyaluronic Acid. The active can hold an incredible number of water molecules to the skin – almost X 1000 in its weight. Luckily, Foxtale carries an assortment of cleansers, serums, and moisturizers infused with HA that you can easily integrate into your pre-existing skincare. 


1. Is it okay to use Hyaluronic Acid every day?  

Ans) Yes. The active ingredient has zero to no side effects and is safe for everyday use.  

2. What is better for hydration, Hyaluronic Acid or Niacinamide?  

Ans) Hyaluronic Acid helps bind water molecules for long-lasting and multi-level hydration. On the other hand, Niacinamide helps strengthen the skin barrier, preserving your skin’s moisture bank.  

3. What acid is best for dehydrated skin? 

 Ans) Dehydration is characterized by the lack of moisture in your skin’s outermost layer. This is where Hyaluronic Acid comes into the picture. The humectant binds water molecules to the skin for its soft, supple appearance. 

4. Can I skip moisturizer after using Hyaluronic Acid? 

Ans) We recommend applying a thin layer of moisturizer after using Hyaluronic Acid. A potent moisturizing formula forms a protective layer on the skin, preserving its water reservoir.  

5. What is the best time for using Hyaluronic Acid for skin? 

Ans) You can use Hyaluronic Acid in your morning and nighttime skincare routine. 

6. How to use Hyaluronic Acid serum? 

 Ans) Take 2 to 3 pumps of Foxtale’s Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and dab it on your skin. Be extremely gentle to avoid any stress or strain on the skin. Once the serum absorbs into the skin, follow up with a generous amount of your fave Foxtale moisturizer. 

7. Can I use Hyaluronic Acid for skin during summer? 

 Ans) Yes. The blazing sun can dehydrate your skin. Choose Hyaluronic Acid, an active that serves as a tall, refreshing glass of water, deeply rejuvenating your skin.
