I always tell you that hyaluronic acid are magic words. These are words I look for when choosing what to use for my skincare so imagine my delight when PCA Skin sent their Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum. That’s like bottling up the magic and delivering it directly to your skin.
What makes this magic? Hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate attract and hold 1,000 times their weight in water on the surface of the skin for instant smoothing and hydration. Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid penetrates deeper into the skin, attracting and holding moisture that’s already in the skin, and plumps fine lines from below the skin surface. Now tell me this isn’t magic. Especially as your skin ages and you start losing that bloom of youth.
PCA Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum gives my skin that extra plumpness underneath it all. I don’t need extra plump on my body but I want my face looking full and more youthful. The blend of ingredients in this serum increases your own body’s hyaluronic acid production.
What you’ll see when using this is a smoothing effect on your face. Before I apply any foundation is when I really notice it and it amazes me at times. This is a thicker serum than most I use so I mainly use it at night even though it’s meant for both day and night use. I prefer it at night so that it has time to work and settle in. My face is smoother in the morning and I swear I see less fine lines.
There are so many fine ingredients in this that make this a wonder for your skin.
Ceramides repair damage to your skin to support hydration retention.
HA-Pro Complex™ is a propriety blend that stimulates the production of the skin’s own hyaluronic acid and delivers 24-hour hydration. Even though Allure magazine has banned the words “anti-aging” our skin doesn’t know that and our skin wants these anti-aging ingredients.
Niacinamide strengthens your skin’s natural barrier to help prevent future damage.
And of course Hydrolized Hyaluronic Acid plumps fine lines from below the skin’s surface.
PCA Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum is recommended for all skin types even oily and acne prone. There’s a fragrance that I notice when I first apply it but it dissipates instantly, it reminds me a bit of an autumn night with a bonfire burning in the distance. But that’s just an initial fragrance that is gone before you know it. There’s no denying that this is a splurge when it comes to skincare but it’s your skin and taking care of it now means you can avoid more expensive treatments later. — Marcia
