Humectant - After infusing the epidermis with valuable moisture, hyaluronic acid continues to draw moisture in from the surrounding environment to provide lasting hydration benefits.

Increased resilience - By enhancing the skin’s natural barriers, the skin is better able to defend itself against environmental age-factors and pollutants.

Tighter skin tone - As it fills the skin with moisture, Hyaluronic acid tightens the overall complexion and firms facial contours for a more youthful appearance.

Smoother texture - Much in the same way it tightens the skin, it also smoothes the texture of the skin for a silky smooth finish you can see and feel.

Less visible fine lines and wrinkles - Hyaluronic acid reduces the size and visibility of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating skin cell production of collagen and elastin, two fibers that contribute to skin elasticity.

Stimulates skin cell regeneration - In addition to stimulating skin cell production of collagen, hyaluronic acid promotes skin cell regeneration for healthier cells and a more vibrant complexion. Pigmentation - A description of hyaluronic acid wouldn’t be compete without mentioning ability to reduce and prevent age spots and pigmentation issues. Clarity - By promoting proper moisture balance in the skin, hyaluronic acid prevents the over-production of oil that clogs pores to cause breakouts.
