My Dry Skin Drank Up Glow Recipe's New Hyaluronic Acid Serum Like a Plum Smoothie
As someone who grapples with dry skin, hyaluronic acid has been an ingredient I've often sought out. I'm no chemist, but I've never forgotten the stat about how this molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water . . . and not just because I'm hoping it will be a question on The Chase one day.
I've also done enough beauty research to know hyaluronic acids come in different weights; smaller molecular weights penetrate skin easily to replenish moisture, while higher-weight ones coat its outer layer and slow the evaporation of that necessary hydration.
When hearing about the new Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum (£37), I was immediately impressed because this serum includes five (!) different molecular weights to work on several layers of skin. Plus, since I was already a fan of the brand's fruit-forward skin-care line including the papaya cleanser, pineapple serum, and watermelon toner, I was more than ready to give my face this plummy treat, too.
Not only did my skin absolutely love the serum, but I also realised why the follow-up products are just as important. See my thoughts ahead.
