3. Why You Should Add Hyaluronic Acid to Your Skin Care Routine

Hydration is the backbone of good looking skin. When your skin is properly hydrated, it looks plump, firm, glowy and more youthful. Sometimes due to where we live, weather changes, the natural aging process, etc., our skin gets dried out leaving us looking older and our skin less firm.

This is where Hyaluronic Acid comes in; it is a naturally occurring substance in your skin and is the key molecule involved in skin moisture because it can absorb up to 1000x its weight in water. Its purpose is to retain moisture and in turn, skin volume which makes skin look more plump and dewy. We’ve rounded up some of our current favorite Hyaluronic Acid products that have received glowing reviews thanks to their skin-enhancing powers.
