Over time, our skin's ability to stay hydrated decreases dramatically. It's great to moisturize skin, but keeping it hydrated - meaning actually increasing the skin's water level - is key to lessening the signs of aging. 

HA (Hyaluronic Acid) is a natural hydrator found in skin. That's why The O Report recommends SkinMedica's HA5 serum. It contains a mix of five different HA's that immediately lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while providing time released hydration for eight hours. SkinMedica's research says that over time, HA5 also helps the skin replenish its own HA.

It is pricey, but it's the best serum we've tried. And a little bit goes a long way (a bottle from three months ago is still pumping out product). Use it twice daily on your face and neck area after cleansing skin, but before applying moisturizer or sunscreen.
