The word "acid" may sound scary, but it is a key ingredient that can help with smooth, flawless and hydrated skin - even in the throes of winter.

 

What does hyaluronic acid do?

 

Hyaluronic acid is a natural, "water-loving" substance found in the skin, acting as your body's natural hydrator. It acts as a natural humectant for the skin by adding hydration to the epidermis.

 

This key ingredient holds 1,000 times its weight in water, maximizing the benefits of any daily moisturizer. It is ideal for all skin types.

 

Our two favorite HA products:

 

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel

 

This oil-free moisturizer combines vitamin B5 with hyaluronic acid, the body's natural hydrator, to help bind moisture to the skin. It can be used alone or with a daily moisturizer to provide extra hydration and is an ideal moisturizer for acne prone skin.

 

SkinMedica HA5

 

Hyaluronic acid (HA) holds in moisture, keeping skin healthy, resilient and supple. With age, the amount of HA in the skin decreases, diminishing your skin's ability to remain hydrated.
