I have seen in powder but somehow cannot find it in liquid form

Also, I have been using retin a but had to stop because I live in LA and am so much outdoors not so much at the beach but when I am working out, biking etc...My face was really red even with a sunblock. do you think it was a good idea or should I have continued? thank you..

Hi chanel
GardenofWisdom.com is a reliable source for the liquid HA that I have used.
Hyaluronic Acid Serum 1% [clear] / 2 oz

Rather than giving up on RA totally, I would buffer it until you get acclimated to it. You mix it half and half in your hand with a mild neutral cream like Eucerin or Vanicream (availabe at WalMart) - mixing just enough for one time treatment each time. Gradually you decrease the buffer cream and increase the RA until you are up to full strength. This helped me - hope it is some help to you.

Thanks Fawnie..

The last thing I need to get is vitamin E, do I get the regular gel tablets?

Also good idea about mixing retina a and a mild cream
