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. Harley Street Skin Care Any­time Mois­ture Surge SPF20, £30 ( harleystreet­skin­care. com), is a light­weight op­tion that in­stantly re­freshes skin and ab­sorbs quickly, while also pro­tect­ing against UV rays. A good bud­get choice is Sim­ple Kind To Skin Hy­drat­ing Light Mois­turiser, £4.29 – great value for money, a light­weight tex­ture and it gives a hefty hit of vi­ta­mins E and B.
