Ingredient Spotlight: Hyaluronic Acid
WHAT IT IS
Hyaluronic Acid is a water based molecule that can hold up to 1000x its weight in water making it a natural humectant that binds moisture to the skin. Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid but overtime we begin to produce less, leading to more visible signs of aging. When we apply hyaluronic acid to the skin, we absorb it as our own making it instantly effective in plumping fine lines and wrinkles.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Hyaluronic Acid is gentle yet effective and works for every skin type. You can use it morning or night and it does not interfere with any other skincare products. It is the ultimate thirst-quencher giving visible results instantly. When hyaluronic acid is applied before makeup, it creates a luminous effect on the skin that is never shiny.
