What It Does

Why It Works
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, meaning it is a naturally occurring substance that hydrates the skin. It is also a humectant that works to moisturize and hydrate skin by drawing in moisture from its surroundings and locking it in the skin. Hyaluronic acid works extremely well because of its ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water, keeping skin plump.
