With winter well and truly underway, time and time again we find ourselves reaching for lightweight, hydrating serum formulas that keep our skin moisturised, plump and delicious all day long.
From budget buys to exxier options, we’ve rounded up 2020’s best hydrating serum offerings that’ll keep dry skin sitting pretty through the cooler months.
L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler Hyaluronic Acid Anti Wrinkle Serum
With a formula that boasts two types of hyaluronic acid, this budget-friendly number is a bit of a no-brainer when it comes to dealing with dry skin. Layer with a moisturiser of your choice for super dry days or wear it alone under makeup for lightweight, lasting hydration that won’t rub your foundation the wrong way.
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum
Fresh has finally blessed us with an extension to their hydrating rose collection, with their latest oil-infused serum. Utilising a two-phase hydration release system, this little guy delivers water-based hydrators and a blend of nourishing oils to the skin, for hydration that lasts up to 24 hours after application. Honestly, our dry skin is stoked about that.
ALPHA-H Hyaluronic 8 Serum
With a formula that features short and long-chain HA molecular strains, as well as cureberry, pollushield and lumicease technologies to minimise the signs of solar and digitally induced ageing, this one’s for all the science nerds out there. The dry-skinned science nerds that is.
DR.JART+ Vital Hydra Solution Capsule Ampoule Booster
In love with your current serum but just need a little bit of extra hydration during winter? These nifty ampoule boosters from Dr. Jart+ combine the hydrating effects of five types of hyaluronic acid and seaweed extract, allowing you to customise your favourite serum formulas with an added dose of hydration.
SWISSE Hyaluro-Natural Intense Hydration Boost Serum
Like your skin care packed full of natural skin-loving goodies? Swisse’s hydrating serum combines a natural botanical alternative to hyaluronic acid with niacinamide, sweet almond oil and jojoba oil for lasting hydration, that nourishes and protects skin without any added nasties to worry about.
