I’ve often heard people say, “Wouldn’t it be great to go back a couple of hundred years and live in a time that was simpler and more natural?” I can definitely understand the sentiment behind this idea, but frankly, I like indoor plumbing. I like gas stoves and microwaves. And something I really like that you couldn’t find back then is Hyaluronic Acid!
