Hyaluronic Acid In Skin Care

Hyaluronic Acid: Treatment For Thirsty Skin

You ask, Bella delivers! Last week we talked about Hyaluronic Acid, a component in your skin that can absorb up to 1000 times its weight in water. It helps the skin stay plump and smooth until our early twenties, when the moisture level begins to gradually deplete. Luckily, many skin care lines have recognized the potential of hyaluronic acid and are including it in their products. Here are three topical options you might like to try.

Cellex C's Hydra B-5 Complex ($73) feels like water on your face and it works to maximize your skin's hydration without clogging your pores. Although the cost is a little steep, I can attest that it's definitely worth the splurge for anyone with sensitive, oily or really dry skin.

To see two other options for hyaluronic acid-based skin quenchers,


A slightly more affordable option is this Acne Treatment Clarifying Hydrator by PH Advantage ($35). It packs a one-two punch: it delivers the benefit of the hyaluronic acid, plus salicylic acid to help kill acne bacteria, making it a great option for those of you with acne-prone skin.

Avalon Organics Daily Moisturizer ($16.99) contains not only hyaluronic acid, but also lavender to calm redness in your skin. However, it's not oil-free, so for those of you with oily skin, be warned.
