3 skin care products that contain hyaluronic acid (and where to find them)
Have you been hearing about something called hyaluronic acid?
It’s been popping up in a lot of ads for cosmetics and skin care products. As an active ingredient in many skin creams and serums, hyaluronic acid (HA), pronounced hi-ah-lew-ron-ic acid, retains moisture in our skin, keeping it hydrated throughout the day.
Let’s take a look at three popular skin care products that contain HA (and how we can incorporate them into our skin care regimen).
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Face Moisturizer
This light, oil-free moisturizer instantly quenches dry skin, leaving it hydrated, supple, and smooth. Formulated with HA, it continuously releases hydration to the skin throughout the day. It also absorbs quickly and is non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores.
TREATMENT AREAS: Face, neck, chest.
BEST TIME TO USE: Immediately after cleansing, morning or night.
HOW TO USE: Gently massage a nickel-sized amount onto your face and neck.
AVAILABLE AT: Most drug stores, mass retailers, online retailers.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream
This cream is formulated with a blend of active ingredients, including HA, shea butter, and vitamins A, C, and E, that lock in moisture and promote a smooth and glowing complexion. The cream is also enriched with a signature “Magic 8-Oil Blend” that helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, and protect the skin from environmental damage.
TREATMENT AREAS: Face, neck, chest, hands, arms, legs, elbows, knees, feet.
BEST TIME TO USE: Immediately after cleansing. Before applying other skin care products.
