Hyaluronic Acid = Moisture Miracle
Seriously, though! Hyaluronic acid is one of the most moisturizing skincare ingredients out there. This is why Sam and I make sure we always include this gem in either our AM or PM skincare routines! Especially during these dry, Michigan winter months. Want to know why hyaluronic acid is so incredible?
It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water!
Insane, right? For a full breakdown on this magical ingredient, check out this post. We walk you through the benefits, where this ingredient is sourced, and how it compares to sodium hyaluronate (a derivative of hyaluronic acid.) After you read the breakdown, check out the list below for our all-time favorite hyaluronic acid products!
Top 5 Best Hyaluronic Acid Products:
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
If you want to go straight to the source, this is a great place to start! This HA serum by The Ordinary is super easy to incorporate into your skincare routine. We recommend you use this at night after exfoliation and before your regular moisturizer. Your skin will literally glow the next morning! Plus, it’s only $8.
Sephora All Day Hydrator
If you follow our blog regularly, you know this is my absolute favorite AM moisturizer. The Sephora All Day Hydrator contains hyaluronic acid, vitamins E and C, and glycerin – the all-star combination of hydrating ingredients! It’s a lightweight moisturizer with a mild scent, perfect for everyday use. For $17, you can’t go wrong!
M-61 Hydraboost HA Serum Pads
Holy moisture!! These M-61 Hydraboost HA Serum Pads are like a tall drink of water for your face. No joke, these are ultra hydrating and we love them! While these aren’t the cheapest option ($68), they are incredibly effective and worth having around. We like to use these pads when our skin is in desperate need of moisture, like post-travel or when we get single digit temps here.
Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
You really can’t go wrong with DE! Their products are amazing quality, and this B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum is no exception. This serum actually contains sodium hyaluronate, the derivative of HA, which is smaller in size and can penetrate deeper into the skin. Dry skin be gone!
OSEA Hyaluronic Acid Sea Serum
I’m obsessed with all things OSEA! Every product they make is clean, effective and totally worth the money (IMO). This Hyaluronic Acid Sea Serum is extremely lightweight but packs your skin with moisture. This one is great to use in the mornings because it doesn’t leave your face greasy. A tiny bit goes a long way, so this rather steep $88 bottle will last you longer than you think!
These are our go-to’s when it comes to moisture!
