Beauty experts like to confuse us by using words like peptides, essential oils (often without specifically naming any) and collagen. But there’s one truly ‘essential’ ingredient in effective facial treatments – hyaluronic acid.
You will find this powerful molecule – yes, molecule – in a wide range of premium moisturising creams and anti-ageing serums. In fact, while the word ‘acid’ sounds alarming, this particular type is found naturally in the body. In the skin, our biggest organ, it draws moisture into the face. Think of it as having a sponge-like effect.
So, if you are looking to ensure your skin is hydrated, you should double-check hyaluronic acid is in the beauty and cosmetic products you use. Even advanced foundations and concealers can contain it.
Plumping and firming, it will help to iron out the creases that give away your age.
