One of the biggest culprits of skin aging is dryness - when your skin lacks moisture, it doesn't look as plump. Besides the "no duh" advice of drinking more water, make sure to also hydrate your skin on the outside with hyper-moisturizing ingredients. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, but levels decrease as we age, which hinders the skin's ability to retain moisture and leads to wrinkles. Products containing this super-hydrating ingredient boost skin's elasticity and hydration, as well as helps the skin's surface appear smoother.

We like: Peter Thomas Roth VIZ-1000 75% Hyaluronic Acid Complex , Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster Eye Serum, and Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream.
