The Hyaluronic Acid [HA] proved to be my second favourite after the 5% Lactic Acid [ see full review here ] and its the favourite The Ordinary product for many. This is formulated to improve the skin’s hydration and stimulate collagen production. Hyaluronic Acid acts as anti-oxidant and has inflammatory properties and has become the latest craze in the skincare industry which has caused different HA products – which are mostly serums that are springing up. You shouldn’t sleep on this fantastic skincare ingredient as it has many benefits. The science behind HA is that, it acts like a sponge and can hold 1000 times its own weight in water. Retained moisture then results in hydrated skin which becomes plump, firm and soft. The texture of skin improves which then helps reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin B5 is water soluble vitamin that is stored in the body. It helps stimulates skin’s healing process, enhances the surface of the skin to provide hydration and plump the skin. Its deeply hydrating and helps keep skin moist from drawing moisture from the air.
My skin type is dehydrated oily skin and gets super oily all year around. Since I started using this, my skin is now well balanced, sebum production has decreased immensely. As a result of this, my makeup stays put for longer and my skin feels plump, soft to touch and feels hydrated. I use this together with the L’oreal Hydra Genius Liquid Moisturiser and these are perfect combo for combatting my dehydrated skin. I use two drops for my face and neck, twice a day and alternating on evenings but I don’t finish my morning routine without this.
It’s a simple ingredient and yet its effective and provides hydrating for all skin types. I’d highly recommend this even if you don’t have dry or dehydrated skin. It’s a skincare necessity and its cheap and cheerful and it works. Your skin will thank you for it.
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you blessing until there is no more need.
