Skinceuticals HA intensifier serum, £83

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: Designed to boost your skins’ own hyaluronic acid levels by 30% this serum delivers refreshed, smoother skin in a matter of weeks. 

H.A. intensifer actively targets those fine lines, dull areas, shadows and other signs of premature ageing: hydrating and encouraging collagen production.

Balance Me Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Mist, £12.50

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: An excellent replacement for your toner or as a refreshing spritz to mist over makeup throughout the day for a top up on-the-go.

Better than a spring water facial mist due to it’s hyaluronic acid qualities providing 10 x the amount of hydration as water. And if you’re a fan of the natural stuff, don’t worry – aside from the hyaluronic acid, all the other ingredients are a natural blend of fruit infusions and oils.

Institut Estherderm Intensive Hyaluronic Mask, £31

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: All the goodness of a hyaluronic acid serum, but intensified and highly concentrated, so your skin will receive an instant boost – expect skin to appear visibly plumper and bouncier.

If you’re short of time but need a quick fix, leave it on for 20-25 mins, or if you need a deeply hydrating treatment it’s advisable to leave on overnight – and wake up to smooth, supple skin!

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick, £6.49

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: If there’s one thing that can totally ruin the look of your lipstick, it’s a load of dry, flaky skin.

The solution? Keep lips primed and protected with plenty of lip balm before applying your chosen shade.

When it comes to choosing your lipstick texture, pick a sheer formula as matte textures highlight flakiness even further.

We like this one from Rimmel London, which is packed with plumping hyaluronic acid to stop flakiness before it start.

Philosophy Hands of Hope Hand and Cuticle Cream, £9

Philosophy Hands of Hope Hand and Cuticle Cream, £9

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love:Our hands are constantly exposed to the same ageing elements as our faces (not to mention other moisture sappers like detergents and oil-wicking papers) yet rarely receive the same love and care.

This is where hyaluronic acid products really come into their own. Absorbing (and holding) up to 1000 times it’s own weight in water, hyaluronic acid is a brilliant plumper for parched, environmentally-assaulted skin like that on the back of our hands.

This rich hand cream by Philosophy delivers a mega dose, as well as glycerin, shea butter, barrier-boosting glycerides and sweet almond oil, to really soften and soothe hard-working mitts.

Indeed labs Hydraluron Moisture Booster, £24.99

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: This fuss-free moisturising gel was inspired by the injectable fillers used in dermatologists’ offices.

When first applied, it feels thin and watery but it works quickly to smooth rough patches and calm hot, dry skin.

Firming red algae extract and tiny hyaluronic acid molecules work at the deeper layers of skin to plump out fine lines from within. A great post-peel or post-holiday skin soother.

By Terry Hyaluronic Face Glow, £45

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love:Part make-up primer, part base – this innovative moisturising face tint from make-up maestro Terry de Gunzberg is wholly brilliant.

It glides on like an ultra-light mousse, perfecting skin tone with light-reflecting particles and pearls of pigment, all suspended in a line-blurring hyaluronic acid gel.

More moisturising than foundation, more correcting than a tinted moisturiser – it’s the perfect base for those who don’t like the feel of traditional make-up but want its glow-giving benefits. 

Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask for Dehydrated Skin, £34

Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask for Dehydrated Skin, £34

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: An instantly soothing cream-gel mask from Clarins that plumps and quenches thirsty skin.

Slick on a layer and relax for ten minutes to really feel the benefits, or use it like a (totally on-trend) Korean-style sleep mask by spreading on a thin layer in place of night cream before heading to bed.

Caudalie Teint Divin Mineral Tinted Moisturiser, £18

In Depth

Caudalie Teint Divin Mineral Tinted Moisturiser, £18

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love:A fresh tinted moisturiser that goes on sheer but deposits just enough pigment to diffuse shadows and make skin look luminously even.

As one of a new breed of clever hybrid make-up products, this lovely light cream contains free-radical fighting grape seed extract and soothing shea butter (as well as plumping hyaluronic acid) so it delivers a load of great skincare benefits as well as a lovely even glow.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II, from £53 (30ml)

In Depth

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II, from £53 (30ml)

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: This bestselling serum works like nothing else to re-plump skin. And recently it underwent a serious upgrade.

Now, alongside its winning formula of moisturising hyaluronic acid and reparative antioxidants it contains ingredients that help skin cells to purge themselves of damaging toxins – something that skin does naturally when it’s healthy but can’t do properly when it’s tired, stressed or ageing.

By speeding up our cellular ‘spring cleaning’ capabilities, this ‘sleep in a bottle’ serum reduces the levels of ageing toxins in our skin, so skin looks fresher, brighter and (crucially) more youthful.

Dermalogica Ultrarich Body Cream, £42.50

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love:Dry, sensitive and winter-weary skin simply drinks in this nourishing cream, which is packed with hyaluronic acid, strengthening pro-vitamin B5 and antioxidant vitamin E.

We like this Dermalogica body lotion’s chunky, salon-sized bottle and practical pump dispenser.

But we love its fragrance-free, kind-to-skin formula and its cossetting, super-thick texture even more.

Phyto Phytokeratine Serum, £19

Phyto Phytokeratine Serum, £19

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: It’s not just skin that benefits from a little extra moisture.

Dry hair needs extra TLC, particularly on the ends, which can be left frayed and frazzled by heat styling. Phyto’s silicon-free serum uses silk peptides and amino acids to strengthen hair strands, hyaluronic acid to restore moisture (and therefore elasticity) and plant oils to renew shine.

Use on damp hair to protect against damage, or use on dry ends as needed to calm flyaways.

Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Eye Cream, £22

In Depth

Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Eye Cream, £22

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: Because it’s up to 10 times thinner than the skin on our face and is surrounded by constantly moving muscles, the skin around our eyes is the one of the first places to show signs of ageing.

This light eye cream from Eucerin contains spheres of hyaluronic acid that absorb moisture and swell, filling fine lines and wrinkles and delivering an instant soft-focus effect.

It also contains saponins, active ingredients that stimulate skin to produce more of its own hyaluronic acid, so lines stay plumped out over time.

This Works No Wrinkles Wonder Essence, £30

This Works No Wrinkles Wonder Essence, £30

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: In Japan, there’s an extra step in every woman’s skincare regime: the active lotion or ‘essence’.

Applied post-toner but pre-serum, these refining lotions infuse skin with extra nourishment, banishing dehydration and roughness so the active ingredients in serums can get to work faster.

This hyaluronic-infused spritz from This Works also contains enzymes that slough away dead cells to leave skin soft, clear and bright.

Kiehl’s Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler, £32

In Depth

Kiehl’s Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler, £32

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: A line-filling concentrate from Kiehl’s with not one, but two different kinds of hyaluronic acid to plump out fine lines. Larger hyaluronic acid spheres instantly soften the look of wrinkles, whilst tiny fragments of hyaluronic acid penetrate deeper into skin and work in the long term to keep them at bay.

Fountain The Hyaluronic Molecule supplement, £27.99

In Depth

Fountain The Hyaluronic Molecule supplement, £27.99

By Rebecca Hull

Why we love: Our natural levels of skin-plumping, joint-easing hyaluronic acid take a nosedive as we age (cue crepey skin and creaky knees), but this liquid supplement promises to plump out skin from within.

Billed as ‘the drinkable moisturiser’, it’s packed with a high concentration of a bio-available hyaluronic acid, so it’s easier for our bodies to absorb and use.

It also contains ginger extract, which also helps with absorption (as well as adding a subtle, warming flavour).
