The Hype about Hyaluronic Acid

The Hype about Hyaluronic Acid
Skincare ingredient trends come and go, with many often proven to be unworthy of the hype. However, when it comes to Hyaluronic Acid, this is refreshingly not the case. Here's why this power hydrator should be in everyone's skincare routine.
You’ve probably heard someone say the word melasma before, it’s a pretty common skin condition. Basically, it's when you get these dark patches on your skin, usually on your face. Imagine tan or brown spots that come in different sizes and shapes. The culprit here is melanin, that pigment responsible for your skin, hair, and eye colors. The tricky part is we're not totally sure why melasma happens, but it's often connected to things like too much sun, messing with your hormones (like during pregnancy or if you're on birth control), and maybe even some family traits.

Dealing with melasma is a bit of a challenge because even a little bit of sun can make those patches darker or show up again. Avoiding the sun completely isn’t easy, especially for women between 25 and 40 who are often dealing with this. They’re out and about a lot. And to make things even more complicated, melasma seems to be buddies with hormones like estrogen and progesterone. So, if you’re in that age range and you’re trying to decide between birth control or having a baby, both of those choices might bring on melasma trouble.

Even though melasma doesn’t have any known bad effects on health, it can make people feel a bit self-conscious about their skin’s uneven colour. It’s important to know that you don’t have to do anything about it if you don’t want to. But if you do want to, we’re here to help you. Here are some of the best ways to treat melasma.
