Why you need to include Hyaluronic Acid in your summer skincare routine

Why you need to include Hyaluronic Acid in your summer skincare routine

If you long for plump, glowing, hydrated skin, you need to know about Hyaluronic Acid.

A large sugar molecule which is found naturally in our bodies to hold moisture between cells, Hyaluronic Acid plays a critical role in upkeeping the supple, radiant appearance of our complexions.

In recent years, methods have been developed to reduce the molecule size of Hyaluronic Acid in order to allow it to penetrate easy into the skin making it a staple ingredient in many serums and moisturises. Extremely lightweight and refreshing on the skin, this wonderful ingredient delivers intense moisture to your skin thanks to its ability to hold more than one thousand times its own weight in water.

As this wonderful ingredient is based on a natural structure, our body breaks it down over time so it is essential to use a Hyaluronic Acid product at least once a day to keep you complexion hydrated, fresh and glowing.
