Boost Your Skincare Routine With This Ingredient

ONE ingredient that’s sure to work miracles when added to your skincare routine is Hyaluronic Acid (HA). You can boost your skincare routine with it. It’s a superstar when it comes to adding hydration and fighting aging.  HA’s calming, hydrating and antioxidant properties are great for all skin types, even for rosacea-prone and eczema-prone skin. Reap the amazing benefits of HA by swopping out one (or all) of the steps in your skincare routine with one of these.

Quench Skin Serum: R329, Boost!

QUENCH is a powerful & hydrating serum with multi-molecular Hyaluronic Acid that improves hydration levels on a cellular level. It’s best for dry skin, including climate dryness (air travel, or altitude), change of environment and air conditioner exposure.

Hydra-Derm HA Masque: R690, Optiphi

REINSTATE skin moisture with a once-a-week hydrating Hyaluronic Acid active-complex masque. This masque will actively promote skin plumping and target the signs of aging: it tightens, lifts and conquers skin fatigue.


Foam Cleanser: R313, Filorga

THE most important step in skincare is cleansing. So why not add extra oomph? Enriched with hyaluronic acid, Filorga’s Foam Cleanser is a rich lather that helps to gently, yet effectively remove impurities, make-up and oil from skin. Cleanser doesn’t get more luxurious than this!

Cellular Anti-Age Facial Night Cream: R269.95, Nivea

THE rich texture softly melts into the skin and is quickly absorbed, providing immediate sensation of skin comfort and efficacy. Combining Hyaluronic Acid and magnolia extract, Nivea’s Cellular Anti-Age Skin Rejuvenation Night Cream reduces wrinkles, increases firmness and improves skin renewal.

Hyaluron-Filler Day Cream: R390, Eucerin

AN advanced non-comedogenic lightweight day cream with SPF15 and UVA protection that plumps up even the deepest wrinkles from within. The formula combines high and low molecular Hyaluronic Acid to take action at the origin of wrinkles, while bio-active Glycine-saponin promotes skin’s own production of wrinkle-plumping Hyaluronic Acid.

Eye & Lip Cream: R330, Esse

PACKED with active ingredients that combat the signs of ageing. Apart from Hyaluronic Acid, the cream includes Vitamin K (to lighten dark circles around the eyes), Copper boosts collagen production (to keep the lip and eye area looking plump and youthful) and Vitamin C (an antioxidant that protects against UV damage).

Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum: R600, Kiehl’s

A super smart 5-in-1 solution for eyes that lift firms, smooths, hydrates and restores youthfulness. Using Sodium Hyaluronate – the sodium salt of Hyaluronic Acid – as a moisturizing agent, it is a powerful humectant capable of binding 1 800 times its own weight in water!

TIP: USE a hyaluronic acid cream based cleanser if skin is dry and a gel based cleanser if skin is oily or acne prone.
