It’s no secret, I am addicted to facial serums and skin care products! One of my darlings of the moment is topical hyaluronic acid. I like how it makes my skin feel soft, smooth and hydrated. I also like that it plumps my skin up (temporarily) and makes my fine lines a little less obvious.
Lately, I have been using Brilladerm Pure Hyaluronic Acid. I cannot boast impressive before and after results because I already have been using Hyaluronic Acid Serum for months. Also, the visible difference is subtle. However, it is a staple in my daily skin care routine.
How To Use Hyaluronic Acid Serum:
I like to use Hyaluronic Acid Serum while my skin is damp after a shower or after I wash my face. I follow application with a moisturizing oil or lotion. If it is during the day, I either add a sunscreen or a lotion with sunscreen. My impression is the lotion helps lock in the water.
Hyaluronic Acid can hold many times its weight in water. That is why it is so popular as a moisturizer.
Some say there is a flip side… In theory, I’ve heard that if the air is very dry it can draw moisture out of your skin. I read this in a few places when I started using hyaluronic acid. This is partially why I like to start with damp, clean skin and follow with a moisturizing lotion or oil. I feel this is a triple threat against dry skin and doesn’t irritate my semi-sensitive skin. The difference is subtle, but I will take all the help I can get!
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
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 skin care companies make vegetable hyaluronic acid, Brilladerm is one of those companies. This Hyaluronic Acid is vegan-friendly
“Hyaluronic Acid is a large sugar molecule, what chemists would call a polysaccharide. Its structure and this large weight give it the ability to hold between 500 and 1000 times its own weight in water. That’s why our bodies use it to hydrate tissues and lubricate joints.

The ability to draw water to it and hold it is why it is such a popular moisturizer.
My Impressions of Brilladerm Hyaluronic Acid:
Brilladerm Hyaluronic Acid feels thicker to the touch than some serums, but goes on easily and absorbs quickly. My skin feels a little sticky for a moment when I first apply it, but that sensation goes away quickly. I like the way this serum feels once it is absorbed. I have also experienced no irritation from it (though I never have from hyaluronic acid).
I like skin care serums that are packaged in dark glass and use either an eyedropper or pump. The packaging fits the bill (and yes it is important in serums to protect the ingredients from light and air).
