#2 FANCL Hyaluro Premium, $132 (30 sticks of six tablets)
If you notice that your skin is becoming rougher, duller and more prone to enlarged pores, chances are it might be more prone to dehydration than before. As we age, it is inevitable that our skin’s barrier function gets compromised. This means that its ability to retain moisture drops so it tends to become drier more easily.
To fix this, these tablets take a three-pronged approach: by replenishing skin with hyaluronic acid, improving its ability to produce the moisture-magnet as well as by strengthening its barrier function for better moisture retention. This formula also contains nano hyaluronic acid, which is easily absorbed by the body for optimum results. Over time, skin looks and feels smoother, plumper and less prone to dryness.
