Nowadays Hyaluronic Acid (HA) serum isn’t foreign anymore. But back in the days, hydration serum is almost unheard of. What people want is a mattifying cream or serum. So where does that leave us the dry-skin group? The benefit of HA serum doesn’t only favour those with dry skin but also those with oilier skin. Because whether you have dry or oily skin, it’s only a matter of oil production. When we’re talking about dehydration, we’re talking about the skin’s water level. That’s where HA serum comes to the rescue.
Anyway, like I said, back in the days the concept of HA isn’t so widely known. Except of course to the Japanese which has been using it for years – whether in their toner or essences. So it’s not a surprise my first encounter with HA serum came from Japanese brand SK-II.
When I first handed Facial Treatment Repair C more than a decade ago when I’m having troubled skin because of dehydration, I never knew that my skin could be so supple and hydrated. It’s been so parched and dry all my life, especially with all the changes in my life, that I believe the state of my skin is unrepairable.
