It’s almost certain that you have already heard of hyaluronic acid before. You have possibly even heard that it is the secret to forever young skin. But is this really the case and is there anything you need to look out for when choosing the right hyaluronic acid skin care for you?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that retains moisture. It has the amazing capability of binding over 1’000 times its weight in water. This substance is naturally found in many areas of the human body, including the skin, eyes, and synovial fluid of the joints. I recently found out that it is also used in medicine to treat against various bone ailments.
As we age our skin produces less hyaluronic acid resulting in less volume, hydration and plumpness. However is using a hyaluronic acid serum really the answer?

Hyaluronic Acid – Is it the Secret to Forever Young?
The answer requires a closer look at the type of hyaluronic acid in a product/serum.
Hyaluronic acid comes in different molecular sizes. Larger hyaluronic acid molecules, despite being the best at binding water and offering hydration, cannot penetrate into the skin. Smaller hyaluronic acid molecules can penetrate deeper into the skin. For maximum hydration, look for a product that contains hyaluronic acid molecules in a variety of sizes.
You should also look for other key ingredients such as vitamin C.
If you use a good hyaluronic acid there is a high chance that after 6 weeks you will notice your skin feels plumper and hydrated plus a reduced appearance of fine lines.
Having done my research and to help you choose a good hyaluronic acid serum I have spent the past 6 weeks testing a few of the Croma farewell hyaluronic acid products.
