This Skincare Super Ingredient Is Exactly What You Need to Fight Dry Skin

Say goodbye to dry, dull skin thanks to this one ingredient: hyaluronic acid. It holds 1,000 times its weight in water, and when applied directly to clean skin, it instantly hydrates and locks in moisture. While we could tell you all about how amazing you'll look after using hyaluronic acid (and, trust us, you will), you might just want to try it for yourself.
