One to Watch: Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid (HA): the moisture-boosting, skin-plumping, glow-inducing powerhouse ingredient that almost sounds too good to be true. It binds and retains water molecules, holding up to 1,000 times its own weight, giving it an unrivalled ability to nourish dry and dehydrated skin… So it’s no wonder that since 2019, the search for HA has increased by 400%, according to Cult Beauty.

All the way from Canada, Luna Nectar's new HA-infused serum is a pure, potent hydrating drench of hyaluronic acid concentrate for a smoothing effect and to lock moisture into the skin. Plus it's all natural, Leaping Bunny and PETA-certified cruelty-free and vegan.

New to sustainable Danish skincare brand grums, is their Hydra Calm Face Cream that’s been two years in the making. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid and coffee extract, this multi-tasking moisturiser not only calms the skin and reduces redness, but deeply nourishes and seals in moisture for long-lasting hydration. Plus, for any professional spas or clinics, it’s available in a professional edition too.

The ultimate serum for graceful pro-ageing, évolué’s lifting and firming serum contains and replenishes the three components that naturally deplete as you get older: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Infused with an impressive concentration of 40% soluble collagen (which is the only form of collagen readily absorbed by the skin), this is a must-have to slow down and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
What do you get when you cross the wonder ingredient Hyaluronic Acid, with microneedling – one of the largest at-home beauty trends of the year? There is no punchline, just German cosmeceutical brand Apricot Beauty’s clever Microneedle Patches. Saturated in HA, the microneedle patches allow the hydrating hero to flood the lower layers of the skin to deeply hydrate and replenish lost moisture from deep within.

As the colder months approach, it’s imperative not to neglect the skin on your body, even if it might be covered up. From Korean beauty brand KOCOSTAR is their Foot Peeling Pack that does exactly what it says on the tin – the sheet mask for feet gently exfoliates to remove dead skin and reveals baby-soft feet within five days. Plus, mint extracts refresh while HA and royal jelly extract intensely nourish.
A must-have for gyms and gym-goers, this cooling gel body moisturiser replenishes the skin’s lost moisture levels after a workout. Hyaluronic Acid and Black Oats keep the skin soft and supple, while Aloe Vera soothes and refreshes for a cooling sensation.
From legendary Turkish pharmacy brand Atelier Rebul is their signature scent, Istanbul, in a hand & body lotion that’s fit for a luxury hotel, gym or spa. Enriched with shea butter, argan oil and hyaluronic acid, it’s the perfect addition to a bathroom or changing room for soft and smooth hands.
