journalWhy We're Not All About The Hush-Hush at Heyday
We mix this serum with just about everything in our facials - masks, moisturizers – to get next-level hydration. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occuring compound in our skin and bodies that can draw 1,000 times its weight in water, is a phenomenal hydrating compound. This particular formula has hyaluronic six ways, offering several molecular sizes to penetrate the pure hydration deeper into our skin.

Just about anyone can use this. This is a great tool in your arsenal to boost hydration anytime – in the depths of winter, in any dry season, or even in summer when you want a lighter and cooler feeling moisturizer. Reach for it if you often feel like your skin is lacking that glow, clarity, or energy, or you're experiencing dryness that is due to dehydration.
Serums generally are the most concentrated of all products and contain the most actives. They are truly a pot of gold. When an ingredient such as hyaluronic acid (more like a fatty acid than an exfoliating acid) is in serum form, it has a smaller molecular size and penetrates further into the skin. Being someone who has long had a love affair with AHA's and peels, hyaluronic is a godsend. It retains all the hydration and glow beneath the skin.
How we use it
Apply 2-3 glob-drops to the palm of your hand, lightly rub between hands, and pat into cleansed skin, day or night. Do this before any moisturizer or SPF application or, if you're a mixologist like us, add it into your moisturizer or mask for added hydration and a one-step situation. We do this often while your eyes are closed during a facial.
What to expect
Many hyaluronic serums can feel quite tacky on your skin. This one finishes matte and not sticky. If you feel that it won't dry down upon applying, try cutting your amount by half and build up from there. You can always add more product, but you can't take away!
Some hyaluronic acids are pretty diluted – I know because I've tried them ALL. Not this guy. It really plumps and hydrates the skin before any other products are applied. It helps enhance anything you layer on top of it.
Back of the Bottle
Able to hold 1,000 times its own weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid has excellent hydrating qualties, protects the skin cells, and maintains the structural integrity of the tissues. It naturally exists in our skin. 🚰

Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate
"Leucidal" is the trade name of Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, a water-soluble preservative derived from the same bacteria that has traditionally been used to make kimchi. With a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity and low to no irritation potential, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate can provide effective protection for certain cosmetic systems and is viewed as a more natural alternative in the preservative category. 🛡
