The New Hydrating Serum Insiders Swear By

Searches for hyaluronic acid have soared as many of us look to soothe dry, winter-ravaged skin. While plenty of topical remedies promise to cater to the cause, one in particular stands out from the crowd. CeraVe’s brand new Hyaluronic Acid Serum contains hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture, plus, it’s affordable – no wonder it earns such rave reviews. Here’s what else you need to know, including how to use it for best results…



CeraVe is the affordable brand founded by – and developed alongside – dermatologists, so it’s no wonder their launches continually cause a stir. Their latest drop is no exception – a silky hyaluronic acid (HA) serum known for the impressive hydration it lends. Alongside HA, the formula is brimming with CeraVe’s three essential ceramides, which work to protect your skin’s barrier and lock in moisture. On top of this, vitamin B5 and glycerin come together to draw moisture into the skin and keep it there. In short, it’s a must-try for all skin types. It’s incredibly gentle, too, so it suits everyone and is often described as a ‘brilliant introductory serum’. Designed to be a serum-moisturiser hybrid, you’ll find you don’t need to use both – this alone is enough to keep any dryness or inflammation at bay.


Combining the lightweight texture of a serum, with the hydrating benefits of a cream, this formula works double-time to protect the skin’s natural barrier. CeraVe co-founder Tom Allison explains: “The concept of a serum is to deliver a high concentration of active ingredients into the skin. Watery serums can prove tricky to apply and evenly distribute across the entire face. CeraVe’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum was designed with dermatologists, focusing on lightweight emollients for a creamy serum texture that will spread easily and evenly across the face to effectively lock in moisture for all day hydration.” The lightweight texture absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave a sticky residue on the skin. You’ll find it sits seamlessly under your make-up, as a primer.

The unique formulation of CeraVe’s Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum is delivered via its patented MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), allowing for 24 hour hydration. As this serum is lighter in texture – but packed with active ingredients – its best applied after cleansing so these can absorb easily. With this in mind, massage in CeraVe’s formula onto a clean face, allowing the emollients, hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5 and glycerin to plump and deliver a much needed dose of moisture.
