Hyaluronic Acid is in so many moisturizing products now. However, many use the wrong kind of Hyaluronic Acid and it cannot penetrate the skin to actually help. The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid uses three forms of HA of varying molecular weights with a cross polymer to offer multi-depth hydration and visible plumping without drawing water out of the skin solely to improve temporary surface hydration.
You apply this Hyaluronic Acid like a serum twice a day before any oils or moisturizers. That way it helps maintain the moisture you add. It has a nice lightweight formula that absorbs quickly. It can feel a little tacky but dries completely in under a minute and you can apply other serums while it is still tacky. You will find some HA in many of Deciem’s products, but the boost from the 2% definitely helps my skin.

How To Use Deciem The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
Use the same way you would any other serum. A few drops spread over your entire face. Either with your fingers or a cotton pad. Apply right after cleansing and toning, with any other serums. Deciem recommend that you use no more than three serum type products at once to keep their effectiveness. Follow up with any oils and creams.
My skin has been really dry recently and the difference after using this for only a few days was amazing. My skin feels less tight and looks so much smoother. I have not changed my moisturizer and the only other change was switching from 5% Lactic Acid to 10% for my weekly peel to get rid of dead skin. Definitely one to try if you are new to the Deciem range.
