India’s weather is quite unpredictable. The month of October in particular can be pretty confusing; one day it rains for several hours, the next day you are faced with a heat wave. This constant weather fluctuation is not only annoying, but can be quite bad for the skin as well.

The harsh sunlight can rob all moisture from your skin and make it look dry and lifeless. But with the right ingredients you can lock the moisture back into your skin without the sticky or greasy feeling. Hyaluronic acid is a lightweight, refreshing ingredient that has the ability to retain large amounts of water thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines which look more prominent on dry skin.

Here’s how you can add hyaluronic acid into your beauty routine.

Moisturiser is an absolute must in every skincare routine irrespective of your skin type. The best thing about a hyaluronic acid based moisturiser is that it suits all skin types. It locks moisture in the skin for a longer duration without making it look shiny. Definitely a must-have product to deal with October skin dryness.

While thinking of skincare most people don’t go beyond their face but October heat is equally harsh on the rest of your body. Using a body cream or lotion with hyaluronic acid will prevent the feeling of dryness and make your skin feel soft and smooth.

Your skin can use some hydration at night too. Air conditioners can rob moisture from your skin. If you wish to wake up with soft, hydrated and healthy skin, it's best to incorporate a night cream or overnight gel with hyaluronic acid into your beauty routine.
