However, if you apply Hyaluronic acid on an absolutely dry skin surface it only takes moisture from the deeper layers of the skin making the skin dry.
- You must top the Hyaluronic acid serum with a moisturiser to lock the Hyaluronic acid within. if you don’t do that again it dries up your skin.
- If you use a Hyaluronic acid which has a large molecular weight, they does not gets absorbed into the skin leaving the skin dry and dehydrated
