There's a nip in the morning air, fallen leaves carpet the ground in red and gold and sunsets come earlier every day. You don't need to be a Game of Thrones fan to know that winter is coming...

As temperatures plummet, so do your skin's moisture levels. This loss of hydration leads to dull, itchy and flaky 'winter skin'.

To keep skin hydrated and radiant throughout the cold and dry months ahead, treat yourself to products rich in hyaluronic acid - an intensely moisturising substance that naturally occurs within the human body, and has the ability to retain a thousand times its weight in water.

What does it do?

When applied topically, it enables the skin to draw in moisture from the air and hold onto it, despite harsh environmental factors.

Where can I find it?

We've rounded up the crème de la crème of hyaluronic acid products. Make sure at least one of these babies ends up on your bathroom shelf this season…
