STEP 2 - Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Chances are you’ve heard a lot of good things about hyaluronic acid for skin (if not, these are all the skin benefits of hyaluronic acid), but how do you choose the best hyaluronic acid serum for you?
Here’s everything you need to know about adding hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA for short) is a molecule that occurs naturally in the skin’s structure and connective tissue throughout the body. Around half of the hyaluronic acid in your body is present in your skin. Hyaluronic acid binds to water to help retain moisture within the skin for a plump and youthful complexion.
Why do I need to use a hyaluronic acid serum?
Lack of moisture is one of the main culprits of ageing skin. As skin ages, it produces less HA and loses its natural ability to retain moisture, causing dehydrated, dull, wrinkled skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to your skin and repairs its moisture barrier so you’re left with smooth, firm and plump skin.
High and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid
Different molecular weights do different things. The lower the weight, the more it can penetrate.
Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid
Low molecular weight HA is made up of tiny molecules that can penetrate the top layers of the skin to increase collagen production and renew elastin. Essentially, it smooths out wrinkles from the bottom up.
High molecular weight hyaluronic acid
High molecular weight hyaluronic acid draws moistures to the top layer of the skin. It cannot penetrate the dermis like a low molecular weight HA, however together they provide the ultimate hydration treatment for all skin types.
HydroSkin’s HA² Serum contains both for hydrated skin from the inside out!
Adding hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine
HydroSkin Hyaluronic Acid Serum is the purest hyaluronic acid serum available. Our potent formula is 100% pure hyaluronic acid, with no fillers, sulphates, artificial dyes, fragrance, or parabens. What is so good about HydroSkin Hyaluronic Acid Serum is that it contains miniHA™, the most advanced form of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid.
miniHA™ is extracted from plants using no corrosive chemicals and it has a molecular size that can readily penetrate and deeply nourish the skin. It feeds collagen and renews elastin.
Our Hyaluronic Acid Serum also contains high molecular weight HA that draws water to the top layer of the skin, and it is this combination of high and low hyaluronic acid that makes our serum so effective. The result is vastly increased hydration that plumps and smooths the skin and a real reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

How to apply HydroSkin Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Morning and night after generously moistening skin with HydroSkin Vitamin B Mist, apply 3-4 pumps of Hyaluronic Acid Serum to the palm of your hand, rub together, and apply evenly to damp skin. Before it dries, apply the Vitamin C Moisturiser or Moisturiser Light.
