When it comes to my skin care routine I believe less is better – so for years I’ve cleansed my skin, used sunscreen and a good moisturiser which worked perfectly well for me. However, for the past few years, I noticed that my skin was not as supple as it once was. Yes, I know with age skin loses elasticity, becomes dehydrated, fine lines appear. I’ve read it all. My idea is to maintain that plump radiant looking skin for as long as possible.
After checking out and reading many reviews on different creams and serums that plump the skin, I decided to try hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that is naturally present in our bodies and contributes to skin moisture, which diminishes with age. As we age we lose the ability to maintain moisture in our skin which gives that plump effect and a youthful appearance. Lack of moisture leads to aging skin. Applying hyaluronic acid to the skin helps to draw moisture to the skin surface.
There are so many hyaluronic acid creams and serums out there so it was very difficult for me to decide until I researched Babor cosmetic products. I like the idea that their products are not tested on animals. I’m using Dr. Babor hyaluronic cream after getting advice from one of their beauty therapists. My skin looks hydrated and smoother but I wouldn’t say that it is plumper. I will definitely keep it in my regular skin care routine.
