I Took Skin-Plumping Pills for 1 Week—Here's What Happened to My Skin

I Took Skin-Plumping Pills for 1 Week—Here's What Happened to My Skin

The kind of hyaluronic acid pills that I was sent and took was Biocyte (pictured below), a French brand which is extremely difficult to find online, however you can try any one of these alternative options[1]. I have chronic acid reflux (lucky me) so I was wondering if taking a pill with acid in the title would have any gastric effects, but it was surprisingly easy to stomach—I experienced absolutely zero physical side effects, which is all you can hope for when taking a new supplement. The box said to take one pill (200 mg) every morning with breakfast, and a large glass of water. I wondered why it had to be taken in the morning, and with food and a large glass of water, but I followed the instructions and did just that, and had no issues.

The box also says that you are supposed to take the pills every day for three months, so I didn't expect to get the plumpest skin of my life after seven days. When the week was over, I can't say that I had noticed a "lifted" look, or any fine lines that looked less prominent, but something very telling did occur. When the week began, I had been experiencing one of the worst outbreaks of my ongoing skin condition, periorial dermatitis, that I've had since it began several years ago—horrible, cystic scabs and red, inflamed skin. By the time the week had ended, my flare-up was completely gone, without a single other change to my diet and without using any new products or stopping anything I usually use. In short, nothing else in my life had changed except the pills, and a serious flare-up had completely gone away. That, to me, was a huge sign about the pill's skin benefit potential, and I definitely plan to keep taking them daily.
