When it comes to sticking to a skin care routine, most of us probably have the same end goal. You likely want to keep your complexion looking fresh and feeling hydrated. Of course, there are plenty of different skin care products—including facial serums, facial moisturizers, and eye creams—that you can use to help meet your skin care goals. If skin hydration is what you’re after in particular, then it’s time to learn a little more about hyaluronic acid, a popular ingredient found in many different skin care products. Keep reading for all the details on hyaluronic acid, including what hyaluronic acid is and what it can do for your complexion.
If you’ve heard one thing about hyaluronic acid, it’s probably that it’s capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Yep, it’s true! As you age, your skin can start to become drier, as it loses natural oils—and that’s when this popular ingredient manages to come through in the clutch, since hyaluronic acid benefits skin by helping with hydration. The American Academy of Dermatology confirms hyaluronic acid is often used in formulations meant to help with dry skin. So, if your skin could use an extra dose of moisture—and remember, oily skin needs moisture too—you may want to consider adding hyaluronic acid products to your skin care routine. If you’re ready to add hyaluronic acid to your skin care routine, below we’re sharing skin care products formulated with this ingredient.
One of the best ways to introduce hyaluronic acid into your life is with a hyaluronic acid serum. And we have just the thing! The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum is an intensive hydrating 1.5% pure hyaluronic acid serum that helps replenish moisture for plumped, youthful supple skin with bounce. Part of L’Oréal’s Derm Intensives line, the serum has a lightweight formula that absorbs quickly with no tacky feel or residue.
How to use it: Every morning and evening, apply 2-3 drops to the face and neck, avoiding the eye area.
Looking for another hyaluronic acid serum option? Let us introduce the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Daily Volumizing Concentrated Serum. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, this serum helps to boost skin’s moisture retention, improving the look of skin’s fullness and smoothness. Immediately, skin hydration is improved, while skin looks smoother and fuller and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced with continued use over time.
How to use it: Every morning and evening, dispense a few drops on fingertips and gently massage over the entire face, concentrating on areas as needed until thoroughly absorbed.
There’s no harm in adding more than one hyaluronic acid product to your skin care routine. In fact, it could be just what your complexion needs! Below, find our best hyaluronic acid moisturizers.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care — Normal/Oily Skin: In normal and oily skin, external factors such as pollution, UV rays, and excessive cleansing can damage skin’s moisture barrier, causing loss of moisture and an increase in oil production. As a result, your complexion can start to look overly shiny. This water-based moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water helps reduce the appearance of excess shine and has a matte finish.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care — Normal/Dry Skin: Normal and dry skin faces external factors such as pollution and UV rays that can damage the skin’s moisture barrier, increasing loss of moisture and causing it to become drier. As a result, skin’s surface loses its glow, becoming dull-looking. This water-based moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water envelops skin with moisture, improving the look of radiance.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care — Extra Dry Skin: Your skin has a very fragile moisture barrier that can be easily damaged by external factors such as pollution and UV rays. Skin consequently loses its ability to retain moisture, becoming easily dehydrated, feeling tight and uncomfortable. This water-based moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water envelops skin with moisture, providing comfort.
How to use them: Apply your Hydra Genius moisturizer of choice to clean, damp skin (this can help lock in hydration!) every morning under makeup and every night after cleansing, gently smoothing it over face and neck.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Intensive Anti-Aging Day Cream Moisturizer: Formulated with hyaluronic acid and Pro-Xylane, this lightweight yet intensely moisturizing formula absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling velvety soft. Immediately, skin is deeply hydrated, while skin texture looks smoother, skin feels firmer, and the appearance of wrinkles is reduced with continued use over time.
How to use it: Every morning and evening, smooth the moisturizer over your face, neck, and jawline until thoroughly absorbed.
