Well, a gentleman learns something new and extraordinary almost every day. Now, willingly admitting full ignorance, I was oblivious to the existence of a certain molecule that is being touted as an effective tool to wage war against aging and wrinkles. Naturally occurring within eye tissue, human skin, and connective tissues throughout the human body, this wonder compound is hyaluronic acid. Until I started this site, I truly did not afford any attention to the matter of aging skin. However, my perspective has evolved over the years, and as my years slowly advance, I am far more conscious regarding the health of my skin. Many men would shun such affectation, however, showcasing a mug like Clint Eastwood really isn’t a personal preference – a Nelson Mandela glow is more my speed.
Enter Filorga Laboratory and its newest skincare offering Hydra-Hyal. Hydra-Hyal boasts 4 types of highly concentrated hyaluronic acids that promise to replenish, hydrate, plump, and smooth the skin. Utilizing two plant-based boosters (galanga leaves and seaweed), Hydra-Hyal pledges to stimulate the production of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in the dermis and epidermis, and restore skin’s natural reserves. Formulated as a serum, as it is applied topically to the skin, the molecule also helps retain water in the skin’s surface, thus skin cells are hydrated and dryness alleviated.
The result: a supposedly rejuvenated and youthful appearance. Hydra-Hyal arrives in a cool frosted glass tube with a metallic pump top. When the top is compressed, a preset amount fills the dropper for usage. It is a small amount, but it certainly spreads generously on one’s face. The texture is slick, but not tremendously oily. It readily absorbs into the skin absent bothersome residue or film. The scent is surprisingly fresh with slight floral notes that smells great. A word of note: The serum should be utilized in conjunction with a regular moisturizer during your grooming regimen.
- Hydrating, smoothing and plumping: 4 types of hyaluronic acid deeply penetrate the skin, instantly hydrating, smoothing and plumping it.

There is a popular saying in African-American culture that jokingly declares that “black don’t crack”. Heavily relying on the notion that our melanin shields us from harmful UV radiation, it is generally accepted that our skin ages very well. Nevertheless, some added assistance cannot hurt. Filorga’s Hydra-Hyal is worth an honest look.
Filorga’s Hydra-Hyal can be purchased on Filorga.com, select Nordstrom stores or on Nordstrom.com, for $69.00.
