Why Hyaluronic Acid is The Game Changing Ingredient for Menopausal Skin

Hyaluronic acid is well known for being the ultimate skin hydrator but did you know that all hyaluronic acid is not created equal?  To treat menopausal skin symptoms effectively you need to be using multi-molecular hyaluronic acid – read this week’s blog for everything you need to know about this game-changing skincare ingredient.

Why Hyaluronic Acid is The Game Changing Ingredient for Menopausal Skin

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced “moisture magnet” that can work wonders for menopausal skin. It’s well known for being the ultimate skin hydrator, but did you know that not all hyaluronic acid is created equal?

In menopause, to get the best results from this game changing ingredient you need to be using a product with different types and sizes of hyaluronic acid. Multi-molecular hyaluronic acid takes skin hydration to the next level.  There is nothing more effective for restoring lost moisture - leaving skin supple, hydrated, plump and refreshed.  Here’s why it’s a gamechanger for menopausal skin.


Hyaluronic acid acts like a magnet inside the skin, attracting water molecules and increasing the water content of skin cells.  Despite the acid in the name, it’s not an exfoliant.  It’s a sugar molecule found in the body that can hold up to 1000 x it’s weight in water to keep skin cells hydrated and plump.  It functions like a sponge in the body and binds water to the skin which is why it is known as “the moisture magnet”.  At Living M we use different sizes and types of hyaluronic acid in all of our skincare products meaning different sized molecules are able to penetrate different layers of the skin for maximum benefits.


Restores Lost Hydration

Just like collagen and elastin, as we go through menopause, hyaluronic acid levels in the body decline. As a result, skin becomes drier, thinner and more prone to dehydration and sensitivity.  Skin’s natural protective barrier starts to weaken which can cause skin to become more inflamed and irritated.  Skin starts to lose its ability to hold onto moisture and needs extra hydration.  A well-formulated product will the right types and sizes of hyaluronic acid is can deliver not only an instant hydration hit but lasting, deeper hydration over time.

Helps with Skin Barrier Repair & Cellular Renewal

Hyaluronic acid is a must when it comes to skin barrier repair and protection in menopause.  It acts to repair damage caused by exposure to free radicals and keep moisture and water locked in. It helps with cellular renewal by replenishing skin cells improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin supple and refreshed.

It’s non-irritating and helps calm inflammation and skin sensitivity

Hyaluronic acid can protect against the inflammation which can occur due to increased skin sensitivity in menopause. It’s a gentle non-irritating ingredient and can help soothe inflammation by restoring lost moisture to the skin.  When skin is dehydrated and dry it can become parched and irritated.  A natural humectant, hyaluronic acid helps reduce inflammation by restoring moisture levels to the skin.  You can layer hyaluronic acid in different products to maximise its hydrating effect without causing irritation.


To get the best results for both immediate AND long-term effects, you need products and formulations that contain different sized molecules of hyaluronic acid.

Molecule sizes vary from compounds that sit on the surface of the skin to smaller ones that go deeper into the layers of the epidermis.  This combination mimics what happens naturally in the skin with its natural reserves of hyaluronic acid which start to deplete as we go through menopause. 

Most products on the market use a larger molecule of hyaluronic acid..  While this is great for surface hydration, it isn’t going to do anything to boost skin hydration over time at a deeper level.  For long-lasting hydration and optimum results, you need to look for products formulated with hyaluronic acid in different molecular weights. This treats the skin is on multiple levels to replenish moisture and glow to regain that dewy complexion. Skin cells are refreshed and hydrated at a deeper level, leaving skin hydrated, refreshed and supple.

Living M skincare products are all formulated with three different-sized molecules of hyaluronic acid for superior hydration. We use multi-molecular hyaluronic acid as a base in all of our skincare blended with other skincare super ingredients to treat the hormonal skin changes caused by menopause.  Low and medium weight molecules provide maximum below the surface hydration while high weight compounds deliver immediate intensive hydration to the surface levels of the skin for an instant smoothing and firming effect.
