hyaluronic acid

noun | hi·uh·loo·rah·nik as·id

A viscous fluid carbohydrate present in connective tissue, synovial fluid, and the humors of the eye.

Don’t let the “acid” in hyaluronic acid worry you -- it’s a naturally-occurring substance located in between your skin cells, as well as your eyes and joints, that promotes moisture and suppleness. But hyaluronic acid diminishes as you age, which leads to some of the dryness and fine lines you might encounter as your skin matures. Good news, though -- you can combat this by using a skincare product that features hyaluronic acid as its key ingredient! Try out one of these hyaluronic acid-rich products if you’re looking for softer, smoother, and more hydrated skin. And honestly, aren’t we all?

The hyaluronic acid in Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Water Gel helps keep skin supple and hydrated throughout the day. 

You can also find hyaluronic acid in makeup and skincare products alike -- see our picks below!
