As we age skin moisture can drop significantly which makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of ageing on the skin. Using a good quality Hyaluronic Acid serum is significant for its line-smoothing, hydrating, plumping and wound healing properties. Hyaluronic acid is known to increase our skins cells ability to bind water giving our skin a plumper and firmer appearance.

Its so powerful at pulling moisture to the surface of skin, you likely don’t need to use in more than one product in your routine.

In general, hyaluronic acid is safe for all skin types, but it is especially helpful for those with dry skin. However, those with rosacea or eczema may want to test patch HA to make sure it doesn't irritate skin.
Hyaluronic acid can be applied twice a day topically, at morning and at night, before other heavier treatments. Hyaluronic acid works well when used with Vitamin C, vitamin B5, and glycolic acid. Make sure to apply a good quality moisturiser to lock in surface moisture and.
