The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 by Deciem
Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body. It is found in the highest concentrations in fluids in the eyes and joints. Some people apply hyaluronic acid to the skin for healing wounds, burns, skin ulcers, and as a moisturizer. There is also a lot of interest in using hyaluronic acid to prevent the effects of aging. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a "fountain of youth."
Sagging of the skin mainly takes place due to the lack of water in those tissues and hyaluronic acid keeps that water locked. Sun exposure can also cause skin dehydration, but hyaluronic acid can help keep the moisture in place so that skin looks and feels healthier. As body collagen declines, the appearance of wrinkles and discoloration become more visible. Maximizing collagen levels will keep skin supple. Hyaluronic acid keeps collagen synthesis up, as well as helps in retaining skin moisture, contributing to the anti-aging benefits to the skin
The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is basically a water based serum that contains hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5.

How Does It Work?
Hyaluronic acid works by acting as a cushion and lubricant in the joints and other tissues. In addition, it might affect the way the body responds to injury.
What Does it do?
The Hyaluronic Acid Serum by The Ordinary aims to hydrate the skin by creating a smooth and plump appearance. Hyaluronic acid is an amazing ingredient that can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water therefore giving the skin a boost in hydration, whilst also smoothing the skin texture and giving it a more firm appearance.
How to Use It?
Apply Hyaluronic acid twice a day (AM & PM) right after washing your face or after taking a shower. Apply a small amount - like a dime size which would be enough for your face and neck. Make sure your face is NOT dripping wet. Apply the product to your face, neck and chest and lightly rub it in. Your don’t need to massage this in. The skin will absorb it super quickly. However, in case you’ve applied too much, your skin might feel tight or dry. So scale it back, mama. It’s also normal for your skin to feel a little tacky, but that will go away as soon as you apply moisturizer. A thin layer of that will get rid of the tacky feeling and will help seal the hyaluronic acid in.
My Verdict of the Hyaluronic Acid serum from The Ordinary Range:
I apply Hyaluronic Acid once or twice a day. (Every morning and every other night). Don’t overdo it by applying it more often than that, and don’t use a huge amount thinking that will help either. Going buck wild with skincare products does not yield faster results and can actually cause adverse effects (on your skin and to your wallet). Also, your visible results time may vary depending on the condition of your skin and also your diet. And please make sure to do a patch test before committing to daily use of Hyaluronic Acid. Simply apply a small amount on your neck and wait 24-48 hours to see if you have a reaction. It’s not a product known to cause allergic reactions or irritation, but I would recommend doing this with any skincare product.
After having used the product for more than a year now, I can vouch the amazingness of the product!!!!
Also, hydrated skin looks and feels so much better (and younger, if that’s your jam), plus it allows makeup to blend more easily. And who wouldn’t want that?
So go ahead and get your skin plumped up! You can buy the product from https://skinnmore.com/collections/the-ordinary in India
