What Is Hyaluronic Acid?


What is hyaluronic acid, you ask? It’s something you should be using—trust us. A key ingredient to youthful, radiant skin—it’s frequently referred to as “the fountain of youth” after all—hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps the skin, capable of absorbing 1000 times its weight in water.

And although hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our bodies, like most things, it depletes over time. Lucky for you, the skincare industry (and now makeup too!) has made it its go-to ingredient.

From your cleanser to foundation to lip plumper, it’s possible to work HA into your skincare routine every step of the way, so we’ve rounded up all our favorite products that contain it. Scroll through the slideshow above to shop and learn more about the best hyaluronic acid products on the market.
