The best hyaluronic acid serum

Hyaluronic acid skincare is a wise choice for all skin types and concerns, as it delivers intense hydration to help skin look plump, youthful, and healthy.

Found naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid is a sugar-like substance that enables the skin to hydrate and retain water. It’s such an effective hydrator that it can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water!

Half the body’s hyaluronic acid is found in the skin, so a hyaluronic acid serum is your secret weapon for a dewy, healthy-looking complexion.

Benefits of hyaluronic acid for skin 

Hyaluronic acid is especially good for dehydrated skin. How can you tell if your skin is showing signs of dehydration? You may notice premature ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, dry patches, a feeling of tightness, or increased sensitivity.

The hydrating skincare ingredient is a powerful humectant, which means that it binds to water and helps skin to retain moisture. In doing so, it cushions, plumps, and freshens.

It’s also anti-ageing: young skin is naturally rich in hyaluronic acid, but levels fall as you age. This loss of moisture leads to visible signs of ageing. Hyaluronic acid skincare helps to replenish those depleted stores.

The all-rounder also helps to strengthen the barrier. Dehydration leads to a weakened skin barrier, more vulnerable to damage, which can result in inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea or acne.
