Do people tell you that you look younger than you are? Is your complexion a 10 out of 10? Do you have zero lines or spots on your face? If so, you may stop reading this.
If not, please do yourself a favor and start using Hyaluronic Acid (HA), pronto. HA is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, found in joints and other highly lubricated areas. As such, it has been developed to bring the same elasticity properties to our skin care regime. HA has the ability to hold 1000x its weight in water. As my skin care professional described it to me, when applied before your moisturizer in the morning and evening, it essentially sucks out all the moisture and injects it into your skin.
You can take HA in the form of a supplement (capsules, powder) or apply directly to your face in the same way you would a serum (my preferred method). I have been using this regularly for months and have noticed a huge difference, I can even go to work without foundation on and feel good about it. My mom’s skin (she’s 60 – sorry for telling everyone!) has dramatically improved in the 2 short months she has been using this serum.
The best news? You don’t have to pay out the wazoo to get your hands on this stuff. I swear by SkinMedica’s HA5 but also have used much cheaper versions (for as little as less than $10) from TJ Maxx or off Amazon, and they seem to serve the same purpose if splurging is not in your budget this month.
