Our tip of the month? Use skincare products with hyaluronic acid. 

If you’re unfamiliar with hyaluronic acid, just the name itself might sound intimidating to you. But fret not! This ingredient is actually one of the best ones out there for plumping up skin (at least temporarily!) and introducing a dewy glow. 

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is hydrating. Like, seriously hydrating. It’s a humectant, which means it draws moisture from both the air and deeper layers of the skin. This helps your skin absorb more moisture more effectively. Plus, hyaluronic acid doesn’t tend to cause any irritation or other negative side effects because it’s actually a substance found naturally in your body! 

Is hyaluronic acid right for my skin type?

Good news: hyaluronic acid isn’t only for dry skin—it helps all skin types! Since it’s so deeply hydrating, it’s especially popular for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So if you’re on a mission to add more hydration into your skincare, hyaluronic acid might be the ingredient for you.

Where does hyaluronic acid fit into my skincare routine?

Hyaluronic acid is typically found in serums and moisturizers—like the Curology moisturizer and rich moisturizer! Applying your products from thinnest to thickest consistency is usually your best bet. If you’re using a thinner serum, you can apply it before your Curology Custom Formula. Using a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid? Apply it after your custom cream.

Curology’s favorite hyaluronic acid products

Skincare routines are super personal, so hyaluronic acid may not necessarily be “the one” for you—but don’t give up! Finding the right products for you might take a lot of slow and careful trial and error, but Curology is here for you, all the way. Talk to your provider about other hydrating and moisturizing options. They’ll be happy to help!
