What’s the one thing that makes hyaluronic acid stand out? It is simply that it is already found in your skin. So, what does that mean? It means that your skin can absorb this a lot easier than it would other ingredients because it is familiar and not utterly alien to it.
It holds 1000 times its weight in water, which is why your skin plumps up instantly, covering up fine lines and wrinkles. All it takes a couple of drops of this serum before you get started with your regular makeup routine, and you’re sorted. We’ve rounded up the best hyaluronic acid serums available on the market right now. Take a look.

As we age, our skin loses its ability to hold moisture and gets dehydrated, which is the cause of a lot of issues. So, even though your body generates HCA, as you age, you need topical application in the form of a serum to make up for the deficit. Have you jumped on the hyaluronic acid bandwagon yet?
