This is one of those gems that you could very well miss unless you were really paying attention. The packaging isn’t anything special, and you’re just as likely to find it in a health food store rather than a department store. But don’t let any of that keep you from discovering the benefits – Reviva Hyaluronic Acid Serum is an affordable gem that simply needs to be in your anti-aging regime.
Hyaluronic acid, also known as a glycosaminoglycan, is found naturally in the body, especially in the connective tissue. It has lubricating properties there, and in skin care it is often used in conjunction with vitamin C to aid in penetration. It is also found in the dermis and is helpful because it can hold up to 1,000 times it’s weight in water. How does that help? It literally plumps up the skin by attracting moisture (water) and holding it in. It also helps in the formation and maintenance of collagen, an important part of the skin that breaks down in the aging process.
When used in my skin care routine, I notice that it is an excellent fix for fine lines and wrinkles. The more moisture in your body, the better it works, so drink your water! It’s a simple serum, inexpensive, and easy to use. It’s not greasy and absorbs very well. Use after cleansing and before a moisturizer.
Reviva Hyaluronic Acid Serum is available at Amazon.com for about $14.
