If hyaluronic acid isn’t already a skincare staple, it should be!
If hyaluronic acid isn’t already a skincare staple, it should be! Haven’t heard of it yet? It’s your body’s own hydrating molecule, often referred to as nature’s moisturiser and it can absorb up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Great! The bad news? Like collagen, our natural levels deplete as we age. Luckily, we’ve sought out the best thirst-quenching moisturisers to hydrate parched skin, without unnecessary chemicals or additives.
This lightweight highlighting fluid features a powerful blend of bamboo, pea extract and glucosamine that helps to boost your skin’s production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin, making it firmer and smoother-looking.

Liquid Lumière is available in two shades; Brilliance, a sheer radiant gold that provides a fresh summer glow, and Luster, a tropical sunset pink to add a pop of colour to your cheeks. £33, uk.spacenk.com
