Everything You Need to Know About Hyaluronic Acid
The type of plumping up we actually want
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple years (if so, we totes don’t blame you), you’ve most likely heard of hyaluronic acid. It’s one of those skincare must-have miracle ingredients, which is why it’s always papped by beauty brands, social media, and magazines. We cannot stress enough, though, that not all hyaluronic acids are created equal. Some of the popular ones are quite expensive *and* ineffective. We’d rather buy something that we know is going to work. Dr. Emer understands this and that’s why he developed Emerage Skin Hyla-B. It is hands down best and most effective hyaluronic acid on the market to give you the results you want (and deserve).
Hyla-B is like taking a big sip from the fountain of youth.
Time to hydrate
Hydrated skin looks younger. This is not an opinion. Just straight up facts. Skin that’s lacking hydration has noticeable fine lines and wrinkles, a bit of dullness, sagginess, and/or an all-around tired-looking vibe. If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned skin maladies, it’s time drink up, bitches, Dr. Emer style.
The packaging is as sleek as the formula.
We’re suckers for instant gratification (who isn’t?), and that’s exactly why Dr. Emer created Emerage Skin Hyla-B with a powerful blend of four hyaluronic acids. A quick n’ easy mini science lesson is that hyaluronic acid is a humectant. That means it sinks into skin and binds to water. When it holds onto water, skin stays hydrated, fine lines and wrinkles are plumped up, and skin looks *a lot* more supple and youthful.
Emerage Skin’s Hyla-B penetrates to all depths of skin with its hyaluronic acid complex. The four hyaluronic acids have different molecular weights, ensuring that every level of the dermis is hydrated. This instantly improves skin’s texture, hydration, and elasticity making it look as fresh as a rose gold Amex card.
Always press the serum into your skin and have fun with it. Turn it into a relaxing AM and PM ritual.
Dr. Emer also added skin-softening panthenol (aka pro-vitamin B5) to the mix. Panthenol keeps skin looking youthful by protecting its barrier and replenishing its hydration. Strong skin barriers are essential to younger looking skin as weak barriers cause skin to lose its water. He included Tamarind Seed extracts in Emerage Skin Hyla-B to smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles, all while improving elasticity and hydration. Last but not least, pseudoalteromonas ferment extract firms skin by stimulating collagen growth. It also regenerates and protects the skin’s barrier *and* it’s hydrating. What more else could we ask for?
The sooner you start…
using Emerage Skin Hyla-B, the sooner you’ll start seeing results. Every morning and evening after cleansing, apply Emerage Skin Hyla-B to your skin. Dispense 4-5 drops from the pipette into the palm of your hand. Rub your palms together and gently press the serum into your face, neck, and chest. Follow with Emerage Skin AOX-C serum, Emerage Skin Re-Fit Eye to your under-eye area, and Emerage Skin Re-Fit Face to your face, neck, and chest. Follow with your moisturizer of choice.
If you have uneven skin texture due to acne scarring or large pores, Dr. Emer recommends using the Jan Marini Bioclear Face cream. This cream is formulated with alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids to even out the skin texture, minimize pores, and reduce fine lines. It also helps to reduce breakouts and the appearance of fine lines while boosting skin’s radiance. This is a great for those prone to redness as it contains skin-soothing and calming ingredients like cucumber extract.To minimize redness and large pores, hit up Jan Marini. For increased radiance, take a look at SENTÉ.
For those who with maturing skin who want to firm skin and reduce the signs of aging, Dr. Emer recommends Senté Dermal Repair Cream. This cream contains a the patented HAS (Heparan Sulfate Analog) technology to improve the appearance of skin’s texture, tone, and radiance. It also contains antioxidants like vitamin E to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
If you like using moisturizers with a gel-texture, try the Faith LAMÉLABO Moisture Gel Enrich. This gel-like cream is richly moisturizing but sinks into the skin quickly and leaves a smooth finish. This anti-aging moisturizer is a great product to use prior to makeup application.
Always finish with a broad-spectrum UVA/B sunblock. The Emerage Skin Fusion Shield SPF30+ is a tinted moisturising mineral sunblock that not only protects skin from harmful burning and collagen depleting rays, but also leaves skin with a beautiful, tinted glow.
Dr. Emer’s Tips + Tricks
• Good things come to those who remove their makeup before bed. Always make sure you double cleanse your skin at night before your evening skincare routine. One cleansing is not enough to remove the makeup, skincare, sunblock, and other impurities your skin accumulates throughout the day. Start with Nudeskin Vegan Bamboo-Derived Cleansing Cloths to dissolve impurities like makeup, skincare, and sunblock on your skin as well as give it a hydrating and calming boost. Follow with an oil-based cleanser like Nudeskin Citrus Clean Balm & Makeup-Melt and afterwards use a water-based cleanser. Dr. Emer recommends antioxidant-based Emerage Skin Foaming Polish because it deeply cleanses the skin, has lightening properties, and works especially well with Emerage Skin Hyla-B. For those with dry skin, Dr. Emer suggests using Faith LAMÉLABO Clay Wash. This face wash contains red clay to deeply cleanse the skin without stripping it of its moisture. Skin is left soft, hydrated, and glowy.
Clear skin starts with clean skin. The Emerage Skin Foaming Polish is great deep cleansing.
After cleansing, use a toner to balance out your skin’s pH so it can optimally receive all the skincare goodness coming its way. Nudeskin’s 5% Citrus Fruit & Glycolic Glow Toner has an added benefit of gently chemically exfoliating skin and smoothing skin texture. Skin looks brighter and healthier with continual use because your serums and lotions will better penetrate your skin. For acne prone skin, use the ReveSkin Acne Purifying Enhancer. This toner controls excess oil production and unclogs pores in addition to combating acne-causing bacteria on your skin. It heals existing breakouts while fighting future ones. You will love how clear your skin will look in your selfies.
Follow these steps to optimize your cleansing and toning routine.
• If you notice your lips need a bit of a plumping boost too, try RestorSea Lip Magic. This softening lip treatment creates more defined and plumped up lips in 15 days. It contains hydrolyzed roe to redefine the lip line by gently removing the extra layer of skin that grows over the lips as we age. Having issues with your lipsticks bleeding? Make sure to add this product to your cart. Another great moisturizing option for the lips is Nudeskin’s Hydra Peptide Lip Butter. This deeply hydrating, vegan, and non-sticky formula rebuilds collagen in your lips to give you a firmer, more plumped up pout.Restorsea Lip Magic uses specialized enzymes to define and rejuvenate lips.
To take your firming and plumping skincare routine to the next level, it’s essential to use the Emerage Skin x AnteAGE Aerify Microneedling System as part of your weekly routine. This kit dramatically regenerates skin with its state-of-the-art Aerify Microneedling Solution and 0.5mm microneedling roller. The dermaroller stimulates collagen and creates microchannels for the Aerify Microneedling Solution to penetrate deep within the dermis.

Follow with a mask for an extra dose of ingredients to treat your skin concerns. Think of it as adding a shot of espresso into your cappuccino on mornings when you’re dragging the kitchen sink. For those battling hyperpigmentation and seeking to even out their skin tone, follow with the Jan Marini Luminate Face Mask. This gives instant results and visibly reduces the appearance of darks spots, uneven texture and increases skin’s radiance. If you have deeper fine lines and wrinkles, soften their appearance with the Jan Marini Retinol Plus Face Mask. This helps to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.
Afterwards, apply firming growth factors to your skin with Emerage Skin Re-Fit Face to regenerate your skin cells and give you a healthy dose of youth-boosting peptides. Use Anteage serum on top of the Re-Fit Face to heighten the effects of the cell regeneration. Top with anti-aging active ingredients to complete the routine. Dr. Emer recommends SENTÉ Bio Complete Serum with sustained release retinoids to continually dose your skin overnight to maximize treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Another effective nighttime retinol serum is Reve Skin Retinol Essential 1.0. This retinol not only positively influences collagen production, but it also prevents collagen that is already within your skin from breaking down. It also supports skin cells to create hyaluronic acid, reduces the appearance of large pores, strengthens the skins barrier, and increases moisture.
