I've always had combination skin. Oily in the T-zones and normal-to-dry elsewhere, and save for a few hormonal breakouts here and there that I've treated with drying lotion, my combo skin has been relatively easy to deal with. But once I got pregnant things did a 180.

Within the last few weeks of my pregnancy I developed inflamed micro-pimples all over my cheeks. I was able to cover them with concealer and tinted moisturizer, but when I washed my face in the privacy of my own home, I was left to face the horror: rosacea. A total first for me. I wasn't that surprised, though, because my hormones were raging and I knew that it was common for pregnant women to experience complexion changes. I was, however, disappointed to see the inflammation still there months after I delivered.

After a visit to the dermatologist and a prescription for a topical gel failed to make a difference, I turned to hyaluronic acids. Known for their ability to reset moisture and create balance in the skin, I gave Cosmedica Skincare Hyaluronic Acid ($9) a shot because it was paraben-free, vegan, and made for people with sensitive skin. And my new skin was being very sensitive.

After a few weeks of using it as my base morning and night (I applied it immediately after washing) I saw a noticeable difference in the redness. The bumps on my cheeks just all about vanished. I still use it regularly because it feels light on my face; it's effective while still feeling gentle. If you're looking for a surge of hydration or trying to calm irritated skin I recommend giving this a shot.
