Skincare is my religion. Seriously, I take it seriously (that’s how serious I am).
Growing up with pimples riddling my face, I’ve always been on the lookout for good products that will take care of my skin. I’ve tried it all: facials, chemical peels, and 10-step Korean skincare regimens. I would invest money on these treatments to get that dewy and pretty glow.
Today, I’ve calmed down with the skincare binge since my skin is doing pretty well. My current beauty routine involves washing with Kojic acid, toning with micellar water, and applying Laniege’s water firming cream once a week.
So far, I’m satisfied with my current routine, but I’m still always on the lookout for new additions to my collection.
Then I discovered the wonder of hyaluronic acid.

Before I dive into the product, first things first — what is hyaluronic acid and how does it benefit the skin?
What Is It?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural glycosaminoglycan that comes from multiple resources, such as food, natural supplements, and HA powders. This skincare wonder also naturally exists in our bodies, particularly in our neural, connective, and epithelial tissues. HA serves as the chief component of the extracellular matrix (tissues support the structure of cells).
How Will It Help Me?
In skincare speak, hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that promotes hydration by attracting and holding vast amounts of moisture, which results in smoother and supple skin. It revitalizes the skin’s outer layers to instantly improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, promoting a younger-looking appearance.
Apart from its anti-aging benefits, hyaluronic acid also boosts the skin’s health and protection. Dry skin is more vulnerable to sun damage and infection. HA moisturizes the skin’s outer layer, giving it a protective barrier against UV rays and other external factors.
Likewise, hyaluronic acid supports the skin’s healing ability — thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. Its moisturizing component helps people with dry and eczema-prone skin. HA also helps the skin recover from laser treatments, chemical peels, or resurfacing.
The Right HA Products Make a Difference

There are different types of hyaluronic acid products in the market. Some beauty brands sell HA supplements, which you can take during or after a meal. But if you’re looking for an addition to your current beauty routine, skin serums and creams are your new best friends — particularly from KEDMA’s Hyaluronic Collection.
Topical application of these skincare wonders boosts the skin’s glow through deep penetration. KEDMA’s serum and creams form an air permeable layer before it penetrates your skin’s upper layers (aka the dermis). It results in a protective barrier that locks in moisture, which gives your skin a glowing and youthful appearance.
The cream and serum have lightweight formulas that absorb quickly. No need to feel that sticky residue!
Apart from the skin loving benefits, KEDMA’s collection also makes you feel like a queen. For example, their Seven Wonders Signature Set doesn’t just come with an HA serum and cream; it also contains luxurious skincare treats, such as a gold toner, face mask, and facial peel.
It’s never too late to add something new to your current skincare routine. If you’re planning on doing so, make sure it’s from KEDMA’s Hyaluronic Collection!
