Hyaluronic Acid. We’ve seen it on the labels of our favourite products. We’ve also heard a ton about it on Instagram. And, we just can’t get enough of it! But, what is hyaluronic acid and why should we add it to our skincare routine? Keep scrolling to find out why…
In simple terms, hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture, and helps strengthen the skin’s barrier by maintaining the perfect pH balance and promoting a healthy microbiome. Dr Rickson Pereira, celebrity dermatologist dished the deets on this magic ingredient previously to our Beauty Book team as, “a ‘humectant’, meaning it works like a sponge to help skin retain water.” Hyaluronic acid is also naturally found in our skin, and helps keep it moist and makes your skin feel comfortable. But with age and constant exposure to harsh weather conditions, pollutants and sun damage, the HA production in our skin tends to dip. This can make skin look dehydrated and result in visible signs of ageing. You, thus, need to add this ingredient topically as well.
Whatever your skin type may be, Hyaluronic Acid will work wonders for all! Found in a number of beauty products like serums, face masks, moisturisers, this ingredient has made its place in our daily regimens. Enter, the newest addition to the Nykaa SKINRX family, the hyaluronic acid range of moisturisers.

“I have super parched skin and have been on the quest to find a moisturiser that can give my skin the deep hydration it requires. When I got my hands on the Nykaa SKINRX day and night moisturisers for dry skin, I honestly felt like I found my perfect match. These moisturisers are water-based and boast marine extracts, something I look forward to, in beauty formulations. So you will always find these two products in my bag. I use one in the morning right before I step out for the day and the other one at night, right before I hit the sack. I absolutely love them.”

“Being a bearer of dry skin, I am always on the lookout for a hydrating moisturiser that will fit in both my AM and PM skincare regimen.This is why, I turned to Nykaa SKINRX’s new hyaluronic acid moisturisers and I am happy to concur that it's no short of a wonder! First of all the texture - chef kisses! It's so creamy, exquisite and lightweight— and a pea-sized amount of the product is enough for one wear. Only a couple of weeks in, using the variants religiously, my skin has been looking smooth and supple and the compliments keep coming in (laughs)!”

“Every morning, I wake up to my skin looking like an oil slick. As a beauty editor, I’ve been told by multiple dermatologists over the years that oily skin NEEDS to be moisturised well, with hydrating, water-based products. The Nykaa SKINRX Day and Night Hyaluronic Acid moisturisers for oily skin are thus perfect for me. They seep into my skin the moment I apply them and I’m surprised how quickly they seem to make my skin softer and more supple. Hello, happy skin.”
