Hyaluronic Acid: An Ingredient That’s Actually Worth The Hype

By now, you’ve probably noticed that hyaluronic acid is everywhere. Cleansers, moisturizers, eye creams, serums – this stuff is in everything. But it’s not just because it’s trending – it’s because this ingredient is that good. It’s more than just a trend. Hyaluronic acid is here to stay.

Let’s start with the basics. Hyaluronic acid is actually a naturally-occurring substance that your skin already produces. Known for its ability to hold onto 1000x its weight in moisture (not an exaggeration), it works to keep our skin and joints stable and protected. It also helps bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, which in turn helps to plump and hydrate, giving us that subtle glow we’re all after. And just like collagen, the amount of HA we produce decreases as we get older, which is why our skin begins to dry out more easily, and then takes longer to bounce back. Luckily, an easy way to combat this is by applying the ingredient topically.

That’s why hyaluronic acid is in so many creams and serums. Because of its ability to hold water, it’s used as a humectant in skincare routines. By drawing moisture to your skin’s surface, it helps improve elasticity and create a dewy texture, which is why skin appears younger and plumper with use. 

So by now, you’re probably sold on hyaluronic acid. We at Orcé most definitely are, and we realized that there’s no reason this amazing ingredient should be limited to just skincare. We decided to include it in the formula of our skin-perfecting foundation, Come Closer. The addition of this powerfully hydrating ingredient created a silky-smooth texture that glides seamlessly across skin, keeping it moisturized throughout the day – and even after you remove your makeup. With continued use, skin is enhanced with a healthy, supple look and feel. Get the best of both skincare and foundation with Come Closer.
