Buzzword skincare ingredients come and go, but hyaluronic acid is one whose fame lives up to its promises. This fabulous ingredient offers multiple benefits for any skin type and comes packed with anti-aging properties. So just how does this stellar ingredient work to improve skin?
Hyaluronic acid (also known as hyaluronan) is a glycosaminoglycan, a type of molecule composed partly of sugars. Hyaluronic acid is actually a natural structural component of skin, and, in fact, is present in connective tissue throughout the human body.
The magic of this ingredient lies in its ability to retain moisture and capacity to hold more moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water!
This is really important when it comes to aging because one of the hallmarks of youthful skin is its moisture content. As we age, our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness and suppleness.
Hyaluronic acid improves your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthens the skin’s barrier; that is, the outer layers of your skin. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother, and plumper—all hallmarks of younger-looking skin!
For best results use on freshly exfoliated or cleansed skin.

6 out of 8 people would recommend this product07/12/2020, By AlexMAP which is the collagen helping ingredient is very low on the ingredient list so not sure if this will actually do anything. Bit too oily29/05/2020, By TarynGreat moisturiser! Just placed my 3rd order.
My skin feels softer and quenched.15/05/2020, By Sandesh Elainenot for me28/01/2020, By KatelinI love this moisturiser, it really hydrates my skin and smells amazing!15/06/2019, By JoneI can't imagine using another face cream again. I've been using oil moisturizer up until now as my skin gets so dry and I've not been able to find a cream that is moisturizing enough. After using Beyond Ordinary by Hey Gorgeous, I'm hooked!07/12/2018, By NicoleneI have only been using it a couple of days, but it leaves my skin moisturized and refreshed.29/10/2018, By ClaudetteBought this as I imagined it would moisturize my skin and reduce wrinkles. Did not live up to expectations as it doesn't feel good on my skin and doesn't reduce any signs of ageing! Is very thick and clogs my pores instead of absorbing into my skin. Wont buy this again, not good value for the price.07/02/2018, By JanineWasn't moisturizing and didn't do anything for my skin.
