Hyaluronic acid is one of the world’s favorite skincare ingredients. It is intensely hydrating, non-irritating, and can benefit all skin types. Hyaluronic acid is found in products from moisturizers to serums to face masks. However, many of these products do not only have hyaluronic acid as their only beneficial ingredients. So, what pairs well with hyaluronic acid?
Since hyaluronic acid does not irritate the skin in normal dosages, it works well and complements other skincare ingredients. Vitamin C is an ingredient commonly combined with hyaluronic acid. In higher dosages, it can irritate the skin, but when paired with hyaluronic acid, it provides a good balance of nourishment and moisture.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the few skincare ingredients that people can combine with retinol. A derivative of Vitamin A, retinol, is frequently somewhat irritating and cannot be used with several ingredients. However, hyaluronic acid can help soothe the irritation retinol may cause.
In short, hyaluronic acid can be combined with nearly anything. However, it should still be used sparingly as too high a concentration of anything can cause skin irritation. Hyaluronic acid can be used in fairly high concentrations safely, but be mindful about what you are combining it with if using such a high concentration.
