While hyaluronic (phonetically it's pronounced hi-uh-ler-on-ick) acid mightn't roll off the tongue, it's certainly rolling into Australian shopping trolleys.
A skincare ingredient that suits everyone, hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in our body, but also added to serums, moisurisers and treatments to help curb dehydration and plump fine lines and wrinkles.
