Hyaluronic acid: the ultimate skin hydrator

We reveal why hyaluronic acid is our ultimate skin hydrator missing from your routine

If you ever experience dryness, dehydration and prominent ageing signs, your skin is probably in need of hydration. And, when it comes to adding moisture to the skin without leaving behind oil and residue, nothing rivals hyaluronic acid.

This lightweight humectant is actually produced naturally by the skin and is responsible for keeping our complexions soft, eyes moist and joints supple. The bad news is that natural ageing and aggressors in the environment can cause these levels to deplete leaving the skin feeling sensitive, dry and uneven in tone.

So how can you top up your skin’s natural levels of hyaluronic acid and help it look instantly smoother? Allow us to introduce you to 4 La Roche-Posay products that harness the power of this skin-plumping super ingredient.

Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum

This intensely hydrating serum is clinically proven to re-plump the skin with moisture, particularly if it’s dehydrated and showing signs of ageing. Fine lines are plumped, and skin feels supple, more elastic and fresh. How does it do this? With a formula that contains two different-sized molecules of hyaluronic acid. The larger molecule works on the surface of the skin to reduce to re-plump, while the smaller molecule is able to penetrate more deeply into the skin. Additionally, vitamin B5 is known to help improve the skin's natural repair process. Apply a few drops to freshly cleansed skin morning and evening.

Hydraphase Intense Riche

La Roche-Posay’s Hydraphase range is created to address dehydration in the skin with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. Hydraphase Intense Riche is an intensive moisturiser for dry skin that contains innovative targeted moisturising technology for intense, lasting moisture. Formulated with minimal ingredients and hyaluronic acid fragments, it instantly infuses moisture into the skin and helps maintain hydration levels. Your skin should be left feeling intensely soothed, moisturised and feeling more supple and soft.

Hydraphase Intense Masque

For additional hydration, try Hydraphase Intense Masque. This soothing and hydrating mask is suited to dehydrated and sensitive skin that feels tight and appears dull looking. Its formula combines hyaluronic acid with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring water to intensely hydrate, soothe and soften the skin. It’s designed to be used as a complementary step to your usual skincare routine so why not make it a regular part of your Selfcare Sunday and apply in the bath as you relax and unwind?

Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream

If you find that the delicate eye area is somewhere that you experience dryness and fine lines, a product such as Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream can provide an immediate improvement. It helps restore and replump the skin with a high concentration of vitamin B5 and a duo of hyaluronic acids that provide both surface and deep hydration. Wrinkles and fine lines should appear reduced and the eye contour fresher looking.
