Hyaluronic Acid Skincare Essentials

Photography: Emma Palmer

You’d be hard-pressed to find a skincare expert or dermatologist who wouldn’t advocate adding hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine. 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. The result is plumper, healthier, more hydrated skin.

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 get back on track looks for topical products that can boost hydration. Here are five of our favourite hyaluronic acid essentials…

The Multi-tasking Serum

Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum

With low and high weighted hyaluronic acid molecules, this bestselling serum reaches deeper skin layers for longer lasting hydration. It also contains purslane extract, which helps to soothe your skin. The lightweight gel-like texture can be used twice a day before your moisturiser. In the winter months we sometimes add one or two drops into our foundation if our skin is feeling particularly dry. Not only does it give your skin a boost, it also helps your base last longer.


The Daily Moisturiser

Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Oil-free Moisture Cushion

Soothe, comfort and replenish a dry, tight complexion with this hyaluronic acid infused moisturiser. With a hybrid texture that sits somewhere between a cream and gel, it’s suitable for all skin types, including oily skin.

The Hydration Supercharger

Paula’s Choice Hyaluronic Acid Booster

If you like the idea of adding hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine without changing your existing products, this booster is just what you need. Two-to-three drops added into your favourite face cream or foundation will give you that healthy, happy glow. It’s a very handy product to have at your disposal when the seasons are changing and your skin’s moisture levels are fluctuating.


The Overnight Facial

Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Hydrating Mask

Slather four pumps of this dreamy, hyaluronic acid packed mask over your face and neck around 20 minutes before your go to bed and you’ll wake up to softer, plumper skin. We’re convinced this mask is the next best thing to an at-home facial and use it twice a week religiously.

This bestselling self-tan serum is our go-to on the days when our skin is looking dull and tired. You can apply it directly onto clean skin or mix a couple of drops into your face cream for a softer glow. With the help of hyaluronic acid, this self-tan counteracts the skin-drying side effects of tanning agents.
