Hyaluronic acid is found in the deep layers of the skin, keeping l it smooth and plump due to the acid’s ability to hold up 1,000 times its own weight in water. It’s also in skincare, so look for this in the ingredients list as it’s a great choice for mature and dehydrated skin. l Avoid skin care containing harsh ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide, alcohol and perfume, which can be too drying and rob the skin of moisture. l Add another layer to your skincare, such as a serum or facial oil, to give skin extra moisture, particularly as we come
into the colder months. l Always protect skin with moisturiser.
