THE BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID

OUR BEST HYALURONIC ACID SERUM
Hyaluronic acid face creams aren’t the only way for you to work the popular ingredient into your skin care routine. Take your moisturizing and anti-aging routines to the next level with multiple products made with hyaluronic acid—including these must-have serums below.
The 1.5 percent concentration in this serum is key since, according to the NCBI, only a very low molecular weight of hyaluronic acid is able to penetrate the skin. The lightweight serum, which is free of fragrance, mineral oil, synthetic dye, and parabens, replenishes moisture for plumped, youthful skin with a bounce. After just two weeks, you can expect fine lines and wrinkles to be visibly reduced.
Each drop of this lightweight serum is like a hydration party for the skin. Formulated with an exclusive Antioxidant Recovery Complex (derived from bitter orange), vitamin E and hyaluronic acid, it works to help cell renewal at night when skin is at its peak recovery. It tackles wrinkles, dullness and helps firm the skin while it hydrates. Use it at night and follow up with a dose of the serum in the morning to protect against environmental aggressors that can affect skin in the daytime.
