Rosacea and hyaluronic acid: some examples
I want to share some examples of good products that are good for our skin and have that ingredient too.
Remember that for rosacea prone skin, dehydration is really common, hyaluronic acid is a good ingredient to tackle that problem.
My favorite product is Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective. It has HA on it and soothing ingredients too, perfect for our skin type.
Another interesting serum I have in my wishlist is La Roche Posay Hyalu B5. Anti-wrinkle, hydrating and from a really good French brand. There are no paragons, so it is ideal for sensitive skins and non comedogenic. It also has vitamin B5 to calm down the skin.
The Ordinary HA is another serum that deserves a mention. An economic product with a good formula. It will not feel luxurious on the skin but it is a good choice too. It also has vitamin B5 on it.
There are lots of it, hyaluronic acid is a very common active so there are lots of serums with it in the market. The ones I shared are good for our skin type, as well as Institut Esthederm serums.
