Three of our favourite Hyaluronic Acid Serums.
Hyaluronic Acid sounds like a scary ingredient but it actually is one of the best ingredients to ensure smooth and well hydrated skin. A natural humectant, it attracts water from the deeper layers of the skin and brings these water molecules to the surface of the skin. It has the ability to attract and hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, ensuring deeply hydrated and moisturized skin.
Hyaluronic Acid hydrates skin without making it oily, making it a wonderful agent for those with oily and acne-prone skin. With anti-aging benefits like delaying skin thinning, itching, and the aging process, it works great for both young and mature skin as well as different skin types.
Let’s take a look at a few serums that can give you the skin of your dreams.
The Back to Life Hydration Serum by Pai Skincare is a perfect serum for sensitive and eczema-prone skin. Formulated with exotic berries that are native to Australia, this is a serum that deeply hydrates without irritating skin. Pepperberry and Riberry are a rich source of antioxidants, helping to heal and support the skin’s natural moisture barrier while Muntries help lock hydration in to prevent moisture loss. The Hyaluronic Acid in this serum has ultra-low molecular weight allowing it to sink deeply into your skin. It is easily absorbed and hydrates your skin intensely. It binds to your skin making it look healthy and plumped. There is an additional inclusion of coconut extract to further lock moisture into your skin, keeping it smooth and wrinkle free.
The Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 by The Ordinary is another superb serum to deeply moisturize skin. It is formulated with low, medium, and high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, as well as Hyaluronic Acid crosspolymer for multi-depth hydration. It harnesses the potent properties of Vitamin B5 to enhance the hydration on the surface of the skin. With these varying weights of Hyaluronic Acid and a crosspolymer, it overcomes the problems of skin penetration that larger molecules of Hyaluronic Acid have. These sit on the surface of the skin and draw moisture out of the skin, making hydration effects only temporary while causing
long-term dryness. This cleverly formulated serum offers multi-depth penetration and hydration. It visibly plumps up skin without drawing the water out of the skin.
The Advanced Plumping Serum by Patyka is a vegan formulation, chockfull of pure plant Hyaluronic Acid. It intensely and continuously hydrates the skin, leaving it brighter and suppler. It firms, plumps, and smooths out wrinkles to restore skin elasticity. It unleashes the hydration power of Hyaluronic Acid by utilizing four different weights to create a protective film, plumping and firming the skin.
The Wakame extract smoothens and improves skin elasticity with an immediate firming effect while the Hexapeptide -11 boosts collagen and elastin production, making the skin’s network firmer, more supple, and elastic. You can use this serum twice a day, morning and evening, to quench thirsty skin.
