When it comes to skincare, our body requires a lot of things. With so many products to choose from, we are not sure what to do. There has been hype over Hyaluronic acid and products containing it. A lot of dermatologists also recommend it, and most brands are including it in their products. 

Hyaluronic acid is a clear gel-like substance naturally produced inside our tissues. Various brands use this acid (synthetically produced) to help combat skin problems and even other problems. It helps with face tightening and fights wrinkles, sagging skin and makes your skin firm. It also helps with dry skin issues as it helps hold on the water into the skin. 

 

However, it is time to stop obsessing over Hyaluronic acid and move on to a much better product. Mandelic acid is a superstar of an ingredient that most people don't know about. It is an aromatic alpha hydroxy acid derived from food products.
