You may have heard of hyaluronic acid and how it's one of the most trending ingredients in skin care for hydrating skin. And how another top ingredient, vitamin C, helps brighten your skin. But put hyaluronic acid with vitamin C together and you have something even more remarkable.
Hyaluronic acid works by binding water molecules together in a cluster to retain moisture. Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, but we all know the body produces less collagen with age, which in turn affects the synthesis of hyaluronic acid. As both collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decline, wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear, most evident on the face and neck. However, you can harness the power of hyaluronic acid products by applying them topically to the skin for anti-aging benefits.
Additionally, you can pair it with Vitamin C—another excellent ingredient in facial products. It helps the skin retain moisture and keeps it safe from environmental stressors for the ultimate beauty boost.
Benefits of Using Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C
When used individually, both hyaluronic acid and vitamin C have incredible benefits for the skin. Hyaluronic acid benefits the skin by:
- Increasing moisture on the skin
- Diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Helps tighten and firm the look of your skin
- Helps rejuvenate skin
Since the skin loses moisture with age, it's best to start early and use hyaluronic acid to prevent your skin from drying and showing the premature appearance of fine lines.
When you apply vitamin C, the best-studied antioxidant that we have for topical use, you'll experience the following skin benefits:
- Protecting the skin from environmental stressors
- Renewing the look of beautiful skin
- Balancing the skin’s natural oils
- Preventing the skin from clogging
- Brightening the appearance of your skin
Combining Hyaluronic Acid With Vitamin C
Hyaluronic with vitamin C together are the best combination for optimal skin care and beauty. Hyaluronic acid and vitamin C complement each other perfectly, ensuring your skin remains firm, hydrated and protected against natural stressors.
Combining hyaluronic acid with vitamin C also works great because when excessive vitamin C is used on the skin, the skin can become irritated—resulting in dryness. Hyaluronic acid increases hydration and doesn’t stress the skin, perfectly balancing vitamin C.

The Best Way To Use Hyaluronic Acid With Vitamin C
You can use your hyaluronic acid as a serum or any other facial product. If you’re just introducing hyaluronic acid into your skin care routine, we suggest you apply it once a day—either in the morning or evening, especially when using high percentages of pure hyaluronic acid. Over time, as you recognize how your skin responds to the ingredient, you can work your way up to using it twice a day.
If it’s mixed with other ingredients in a serum, you can use it twice a day in the morning and evening (though, we always recommend reading the product instructions for best results). We don't recommend using it more than twice a day.
