Best 5 Hyaluronic products for your dry skin.
Keep your skin moisturized all year long!
Do you think your skin gets dry only in winter? You'd be surprised. Summer is the worst time for all those dry skin faces out there. Here's the science behind it: in summer your skin gets oily because of lack of moisture. The oil is actually released to prevent your skin from further loss of water. AC is also not too great for your skin, making it even more prone to lose moisture.
What's the solution to this 'dry' dilemma? Well, we can tell you that oil-control products are not. Limiting oil won't fix the fundamental issue behind oil production, which is your skin not being moisture enough. You got it, Sherlock! The solution is to hydrate your skin more. One of the best hydrating elements is Hyaluronic acid. It sounds a bit scary but it's actually naturally present in the human dermis layer. It has high viscoelasticity, water retention (moisturizing + water locking) and lubrication properties. It is the most effective natural moisturizer for the human skin, locking in water 1,000 times vs its own weight. Quite impressive right? Today, we hand-picked what we think to be the best products containing this super-hydrating acid. 3 different price ranges for all kinds of pockets. Get ready!.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 （~$112）
First and Foremost, the Ordinary, one of your fav brands. It's affordable and effective in making your skin moisturized. It contains both hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5. Vitamin B5 is similar to the skin sebum film. Hence it helps the whole solution infiltrate through the skin layers, making it easier to absorb. Great combo!
Drunk Elephant B-Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Serum (~$385)
The second best is Drunk Elephant products. Another popular brand and in our top ranking. You will pay quite a premium compared to the Ordinary, but the quality and texture of the product are on a completely different level. It's much lighter and even more packed with Vitamin B5. Additionally, a compound derived from lentils and apples has been added to further help on dryness.
La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum（~$439 ）
Last but not least, if you're willing to invest even more on your skin health, check out La Roche-Posay. The Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum contains two pure natural hyaluronic acids, making it even more powerful in moisturizing your skin. Another key differentiator is that this product is great for sensitive skins, more gentle than the other two above. We tested them, we listed them here. Now it's time for you to try them out!
SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator (~$761)
First of all, you’re getting what you paid for. The reason behind this pricey product is that this moisturizing essence contains 5 kinds of beneficial hyaluronic acid. Ranging from macromolecules to finer molecules, it allows the essentials to penetrate to the bottom of your skin. If you are born with or experiencing dry skin, and your skin peels during the winter, then this one will definitely be the savior you have been searching for a long time!
Dr.Strum Hyaluronic Serum (~$2200)
Amongst many hyaluronic acid essences, Dr. Sturm Hyaluronic Serum is the most expensive one in this list, and there’s a reason for it. Developed by Hollywood's beauty doctor, Dr. Barbara Sturm. Even Victoria Beckham is her regular visitor. This essence uses medical-grade cell repair technology, so you know this is the real deal! By essentially adding purslane extract, it is rich in vitamins A, B and C and a mixed variety of natural minerals. Effectively fighting against aging and repairing skin cells, preventing them from further damages. In addition, double-stranded hyaluronic acid is added to help penetrate into different cell layers. If you are going to invest generously, this is perfect for you!
