Hyaluronic acid is in everything. From skin care to concealer to supplements — yup, you can eat your hyaluronic acid now — the skin-plumping hydrator has leveraged its reputation for attracting 1,000 times its weight in water into household-name status. Predictably, this means you'll need to do your research if you're after the very best hyaluronic acid products. When a hyaluronic acid serum can range from $7 all the way up to $450 (and higher), how are you supposed to know which one to buy?

After reading up on the difference between hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate, your next step is figuring out which form you want to slather on. Are you more interested in layering a hyaluronic acid serum somewhere into your current routine, or do you want to find an all new moisturizer that features the ingredient? Likewise, there's more than enough infused makeup options if you're looking to bridge the gap between your routine. You could use it in your primer, foundation, concealer, and blush, if you wanted to. Givenchy's Le Rouge lipstick even has sodium hyaluronate in it.

The first step is to start scrolling. Below, some of the best hyaluronic acid beauty products to work into your routine this year, since there's never been a better time — or more options on the market.
