Rétinol or hyaluronic acid, what difference?
Let's talk about the effects of these two ingredients
You have probably already heard of hyaluronic acid or retinol, these sought-after ingredients in anti-aging cosmetics, but what are they and how should you use them? We'll tell you everything in this article.
Hyaluronic acid is currently one of the most hydrating molecules available. It acts as a water sponge and can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. This acid, naturally present in our body, promotes skin elasticity and a fresh complexion. However, its production decreases over the years, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles.
Retinol is a type of retinoid, an active form of Vitamin A. With its antioxidant power, it helps our skin fight against aging and increases collagen production. It is not naturally present in our body but is derived from animal or plant sources such as butter or Calendula.
Therefore, it is interesting to start incorporating hyaluronic acid and retinol into your beauty routine around the age of twenty to prevent signs of skin aging. But which one should you choose?
Each of these ingredients has proven to be highly effective as an anti-aging treatment, but they also have other properties. Indeed, retinol is excellent for treating acne and imperfections, while hyaluronic acid is ideal for dehydrated skin.
And it is also possible to combine them in your beauty routine to benefit from their full effectiveness.
Here is a selection of products enriched with hyaluronic acid or retinol:
