How to Best Use Hyaluronic Acid

What is the Best Way to Apply Hyaluronic Acid? To very moist skin.


How to Get the Best Results Using Hyaluronic Acid

I always apply Hyaluronic Acid over wet or at least damp skin. I apply my moisturizer on top or mix it in with the HA. I even steam my face first sometimes for maximum moisture. Then as the last layer, I mist my face with water or a refreshing spray and let that dry before applying makeup or anything else.

The reason for this is the HA pulls moisture from where it can get it, and if it doesn’t get enough, it pulls from the air. And if THAT isn’t enough, your face can actually end up looking dry, because Hyaluronic Acid is thirsty. So give it as much water as it can drink for a maximum plumping effect.


  • It is important to use a moisturizer over your Hyaluronic Acid, as it draws as much moisture as possible into the skin. If Hyaluronic Acid can’t get enough moisture, the surface of the skin can appear DRY, because the Hyaluronic is still “thirsty.” I like to apply Hyaluronic Acid over damp skin; sometimes I mix a Hyaluronic cream or serum with some water before applying it to my face and eye area.
  • A small amount of serum or cream will cover your face. Apply more if needed, focusing on wrinkles, pores on the cheeks, and the wrinkles on the forehead and throat.
  • Apply Hyaluronic Acid over a Vitamin C serum or Peptide Serum to maximize your results
  • If you live in an area with higher environmental pollution, consider only using Hyaluronic Acid at night so that it does not pull the pollutants into your skin from the air.
