6 Foundations Infused With Hyaluronic Acid for a Flawless, Hydrated Complexion
Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating ingredient that we love for its abilities to make your complexion look more plump and youthful. Lately, more and more brands have been incorporating hyaluronic acid into makeup to create face products with skincare benefits. Here, we rounded up our favorite hyaluronic acid-infused illuminating foundations that will even out your complexion while also nourishing your skin.
The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that prevents the loss of moisture in the skin and has the ability to retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water. When applied topically, hyaluronic acid can also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by making the skin look more plump. All skin types can benefit from hyaluronic acid, including sensitive.
