An ingredient beloved by skincare experts and dermatologists alike, hyaluronic acid is an essential ingredient to have in your skincare arsenal. A naturally occurring compound found in the skin, hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet, able to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and responsible for helping your cells to retain as much moisture as possible so that skin appears plump, healthy and hydrated. Unfortunately, not only does production starts to decrease as we age, external aggressors such as UV exposure and pollution also cause it to degrade. To help your skin (even oily or sensitive skin) get back on track looks for topical products that can boost hydration. Here are five of our favourite…
