Let me introduce you to my FAVORITE acid of all time…
Hyaluronic has so many functions in medicine and biology; in skincare, it is literally referred to as “nature’s moisturizer” because it is so hydrophilic (water-loving). Its chemical structure allows it to trap ~1000 times its weight in water, so hyaluronic acid is amazing for skin hydration.
💦 Personally, my go-to hyaluronic serum is the Deciem ‘hyaluronic acid 2% + B5’. I use it every single day, in the morning and before bedtime. The formulation combines low, medium, and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (and a whole lot of other goodness) to allow for increased skin hydration. When I run out of product, I definitely notice the difference in my skin. All in all, I’m totally obsessed with this serum and so happy I’ve found one of my favs!
