Discover the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, the answers to all of your Hyaluronic Acid-related questions & Charlotte’s magical foundation with hyaluronic acid!

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a well-known, well-loved ingredient used in beauty products around the world. It’s a sugar substance that is naturally produced by your body to retain moisture levels, and the highest quantities of it can be found in your skin, eyes and joints.

Hyaluronic acid’s moisture-retaining properties contribute to your skin elasticity, allowing it to appear plump and glowy.

As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid that your body naturally produces decreases, which is why it can be found in many beauty products such as moisturisers and foundations with hyaluronic acid. Makeup and skincare-lovers everywhere use these products to help maintain good moisture retention, a plump-looking appearance and skin elasticity.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid? Benefits in Beauty


A key benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it delivers hydration to your skin. When skin is hydrated, it tends to appear brighter, plumper, firmer and more supple, which ultimately contributes to the healthy-looking glow that many people look for when it comes to their skin.

As hyaluronic acid helps to firm and plump the look of skin to help it look more supple, this can also lead to a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!


Hyaluronic acid can be used as part of your magic skin routine to hydrate your skin! It can be used in combination with other ingredients in products such as serums, moisturisers and lip oils, to be applied morning and night to deliver intense hydration to your skin.

Hyaluronic acid can also be found in the formulas of makeup products! Choose a foundation with hyaluronic acid to further hydrate your skin and help create a dewy, fresh, healthy looking finish.
