Hyaluronic acid is the gift that keeps on giving, and these 5 serums will keep you glowing all winter long

A humectant that attracts and retains moisture in the skin, hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, and our bodies naturally produce it. It is also a must-have ingredient for dehydrated skin as it helps to replenish moisture loss. With this in mind, most folks look to hyaluronic acid serums to give them that extra hydration boost — especially in the winter months.

Quick overview

But how do you know when your skin is dehydrated? Dehydrated skin occurs when your body loses more water than it takes in. Not drinking enough water or sweating frequently can cause it. If you have dehydrated skin, you might notice itchiness, dullness, dark under-eye circles, sunken eyes, and even more noticeable fine lines.

Hyaluronic acid is the key ingredient when it comes to combating or reversing aging because, as we age, our skin’s natural level of hyaluronic acid decreases, so it’s important to replenish our hydration levels to keep your skin plump, radiant and overall healthy.

I recommend making sure you use products with hyaluronic acid, especially during the winter when our skin tends to be the driest. Whether you’re looking for the most affordable under-$10 serum or the best one that also helps brighten your skin, I’ve got you.
