Dot & Key Hyaluronic Acid Serum Concentrate Review

Hyaluronic acid serums have been popular in the skincare industry for quite a few years now. Indian skincare brands have been including various hyaluronic acid serum in their range too.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring glycosaminoglycan which is present throughout the body. It can hold upto 1000 times the weight in water. It helps in plumping the skin, restoring hydration and moisturisation to the skin and also helps in plumping it up.

 


When used topically along with a good emollient cream on top it helps in sucking in the moisture from the cream and also prevents transepidermal water loss.

Harsh environmental factors such as sun damage, oxidative stress can lead to depletion of hyaluronic acid levels in the skin leading to a dry dehydrated skin.


Adding a topical hyaluronic acid serum helps in replenishing the lost moisture and promotes a healthy skin barrier.


Coming to the Dot and Key Hyaluronic acid serum concentrate.

My experience with the product-


Dot and key comes with a wide range of products. Their hyaluronic acid serum concentrate was my first buy from the brand. The serum spreads easily on the skin and feels really light. The serum has a mild fragrance which I really like and is not overpowering. The serum doesn't feel sticky while application. It provides good moisturisation immediately after its application.

I apply a thick moisturiser after application of this serum. The finish of the serum is very smooth due to the presence of silicones. Just make sure that you are not allergic to silicones before using this product. Silicones are not bad in skincare as they act as an occlusive and prevent water loss from the skin but some people are allergic/ sensitive to it. The serum also contains vitamin C and E which works great with hyaluronic acid.The serum also contains ceramide 3 which helps in maintaining the lipid barrier of the skin.his particular serum can be applied along with your vitamin C serums to add an extra boost of glow to the skin.
