This serum contains hyaluronic acid, to hydrate skin without ever feeling greasy or heavy. Because hyaluronic acid attracts water to and traps it within the skin, there is an immediate plumping effect, helping to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also an incredibly well-tolerated ingredient, making this a good serum for all skin types.

- Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid but this production decreases with age. Topical hyaluronic acid is a large molecule that doesn’t penetrate very deeply, but rather sits on top of the skin, where it attracts and retains water so that skin appears more hydrated, smoother, and plumper.
Use in the morning and at night. Apply a thin layer to skin and let dry before layering with your favorite moisturizer.RealSelf tips:
Maximize hyaluronic acid’s effects by applying it onto slightly damp skin, immediately post-washing.
Because this product is so lightweight, it makes the perfect prep step to use before makeup application.
If your skin skews more toward oily, using this without a moisturizer may be sufficient. Otherwise, follow it up with your favorite moisturizer.
