Some skincare ingredients have a lot of buzz surrounding them, with hyaluronic acid being one. From dermatologists to beauty bloggers, it’s an ingredient that everybody recommends.

If you’ve never used hyaluronic acid before, you’re probably wondering what all of the fuss is about. Read on as Vine Vera explains more about how this much-loved ingredient could benefit your skin.

What Exactly is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a compound that naturally occurs in the human body. It’s a slippery, gooey substance that provides lubrication. From your joints to your skin, it keeps everything flexible and working like a well-oiled machine. With that said, while hyaluronic acid can be found throughout the human body, around 50% of the body’s hyaluronic acid lives in the skin.

Sadly, the amount of hyaluronic acid that’s naturally produced in the body declines with age. Not only does this play a role in creaking joints, but it also impacts the skin in a few different ways…

Hyaluronic Acid vs Sodium Hyaluronate in Skincare

Before we get into the skin benefits of hyaluronic acid, it’s important to recognize that there are a few forms of the ingredient out there. Sodium hyaluronate is one of the most popular, so much so that many now favor it over hyaluronic acid.

What’s the difference? Hyaluronic acid consists of larger molecules than sodium hyaluronate. This inhibits its ability to penetrate the skin. It’s great for tackling surface-related issues but if you want the deeper layers of your complexion to benefit from the ingredient’s superstar properties, sodium hyaluronate is the way to go.

How Does Hyaluronic Acid Benefit the Skin?

It goes without saying that the lubrication provided by hyaluronic acid is vital for the skin. However, the ingredient offers several other benefits too:

Provides Deep Hydration


As you’re about to find out, hyaluronic acid can boost the complexion in a few different ways. However, its claim to fame lies in its hydrating properties. 

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant. This means that it has the ability to bind moisture to the skin. It does this quickly too, resulting in almost instant hydration. While just about every product containing hyaluronic acid will do this, serums are reputed to be the best at quenching the skin.

You’ll find sodium hyaluronate in several Vine Vera serum formulations, with the Resveratrol Pinot Noir Longevity Serum being one of the most popular. This serum combines sodium hyaluronate with lactic acid and glycerin. Both are also hydrating humectants. You’ll also find vitamins A and C in this formula too. While they’re most commonly utilized as a way to brighten up the complexion and counter the appearance of aging, they help to regulate skin moisture levels too.

Reduces the Appearance of Wrinkles

When you give your skin cells the hydration that they need with hyaluronic acid, they’re able to function to their full potential. This makes them more capable of staving off the appearance of aging. 

The way in which hyaluronic acid immediately plumps up the complexion helps with this too. It leaves the surface of the skin looking fuller, which smooths away the visibility of creases. Combine this with other ingredients that also work to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and you’ll have a smoother-looking face in no time!

This is exactly what the Resveratrol Cabernet Plump & Correct Treatment has been designed to do. It brings sodium hyaluronate together with other complexion-smoothing ingredients, including DMAE and acetyl hexapeptide-8. Just like hyaluronic acid, these ingredients work quickly, which is how this formula is able to instantly mitigate the look of wrinkles. Even better, thanks to the antioxidants in this solution, which come from the likes of resveratrol, vitamin A, cucumber extract, and rose stem cells, it will work to keep your skin looking youthful in the long run too!

Improves the Feeling of Skin Elasticity


Not only does hyaluronic acid help to make wrinkles look less noticeable, but it gives the skin a firmer and more elastic feel too. When the skin is dehydrated, it can look almost deflated. It starts to sag and lose its sense of firmness. However, give it the hydration that it needs with hyaluronic acid and it will once again feel tighter.

This is something that every area of skin can benefit from, yet the skin around the eyes can sometimes need it the most. The skin here is thinner and more delicate than the skin anywhere else on the face. This means that it’s more susceptible to losing its firmness and elasticity. Using eye care products that contain hyaluronic acid will soon have your eye area looking taut and youthful.

If you don’t yet have any eye care products featuring this superstar ingredient, check out the Resveratrol Eye Collection Age Defying Eye Serum from Vine Vera. Once again, sodium hyaluronate is joined by several other humectants, including aloe vera, peptides, and glycerin. These ingredients will give your eye area all of the hydration that it needs. Meanwhile, between the vitamins and the antioxidant-rich botanicals in this formula, you’ll also end up with skin that looks brighter and younger!

Lightens the Visibility of Hyperpigmentation

Some of the benefits of hyaluronic acid, such as the way in which it hydrates the skin, are well known. However, this ingredient offers some other advantages too, which many aren’t aware of…

One of these is its ability to lighten the visibility of hyperpigmentation. Research confirms these effects, with studies showing that hyaluronic acid can significantly decrease the look of excess skin pigmentation. However, low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid needs to be used. This means ingredients like sodium hyaluronate, rather than regular hyaluronic acid itself.

Again, if you want your skin to reap the rewards of this ingredient’s ability to lighten and brighten the look of discoloration, a serum is your best bet. Ideally, look for a formula that combines sodium hyaluronate with ingredients that also target the appearance of hyperpigmentation. The Vine Vera Resveratrol Chianti Revival Serum would be a great one to try. In addition to sodium hyaluronate, it also contains licorice root extract, vitamin C, vitamin A, kojic acid, green tea extract, and peptides. All of these ingredients are revered for how they brighten up the complexion, enabling this serum to even out the look of your skin in no time.

Gives the Skin a Brighter and More Radiant Finish

You already know how the extra hydration provided by hyaluronic acid helps to plump up the complexion. Well, one of the perks that follow on from this is that the skin usually then looks much brighter.

If your skin is sunken, it will naturally look duller. On the other hand, if your skin looks plump and full, it will be able to reflect light more efficiently. This is how hyaluronic acid is able to give the skin an instant glow!

One product that’s great for highlighting the radiance-enhancing properties of hyaluronic acid is the Resveratrol Pinot Noir Phyto Silk Mask. It’s a no-rinse mask, meaning that it’s left on the skin for much longer than a regular face mask. This gives the ingredients within more time to sink into the skin. In addition to sodium hyaluronate, this mask is also packed with superfruit extracts. From goji to mangosteen to pomegranate, each one is full of antioxidants that will do wonders for your complexion.

Soothes the Look of Redness and Inflammation

The skin can turn red and inflamed for a variety of reasons. For some people, it’s temporary, whereas those who have naturally sensitive skin have to deal with this for years.

Either way, if your skin is looking red and inflamed, you’ll need to be very careful with the skincare ingredients you use. Many can be too harsh for skin that’s feeling sensitive and will only make things worse. Instead, you should be prioritizing ingredients that have been proven to soothe the feeling of inflammation. This, in turn, will tackle the look of redness too.

The good news is that there are a few ingredients that are capable of doing this, one of which is hyaluronic acid. Again, for best results, look for products that combine it with other similar ingredients, meaning those that calm the feeling of inflammation while also hydrating the skin. You’ll find plenty of them in the Resveratrol Pinot Noir Phyto-Silk from Vine Vera. In this silky moisturizer, you’ll find sodium hyaluronate, algae extract, peptides, and soluble collagen. All of these ingredients feel deeply hydrating and soothing when applied to the skin. Use this cream regularly and your skin won’t feel irritated and inflamed quite so easily anymore!

Leaves the Skin Barrier Feeling Fortified

We’ve already talked about how hyaluronic acid can leave the skin looking plumper. This is down to the moisture that it binds to the skin’s surface. 

Well, in addition to hydrating the skin, this moisture also serves to keep the skin’s natural protective barrier feeling supported. It gives this all-important barrier a thicker feel. As you can imagine, this can go a long way in promoting a healthier-looking complexion overall.

If you’re looking for products that will emphasize this quality and leave your skin barrier feeling more resilient, you won’t go wrong with the Vine Vera Resveratrol Chianti Skin Restoring Capsules. This is an encapsulated serum, which allows the product to retain the potency of its ingredients for longer. It has a beautiful silky texture and packs a punch in terms of the content of each capsule. This is why, unlike a regular serum, it should be used weekly rather than daily.

Should You Be Adding Hyaluronic Acid to Your Skincare Routine?

There aren’t many skincare ingredients that pretty much every single person out there would benefit from, but hyaluronic acid is one of them. After all, not only does everyone’s skin need hydration, but chances are that you’re also dealing with some of the other visible skin concerns that hyaluronic acid can help with. 

Fortunately, now that this ingredient is so popular, you’ll find it in a variety of different skincare products. Try to incorporate it into several stages of your skincare routine and your skin will be able to benefit from it even more!
