If you swear by a basic skincare routine, you might be wondering why you need a hydrating serum on top of having a moisturizer.

Serums are potent. Hydrating ones, in particular, contain hyaluronic acid in high concentrationsthis is what makes a few drops so effective. "Hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet," beauty brand Kiehl's Retail and Education Manager Yricka Dela Pena tells Female Network. "It pulls and attracts moisture to the skin so it's [best used] together with a moisturizer kasi while the hyaluronic acid would attract moisture, your moisturizer will lock in the moisture to trap it within your skin barrier." 

If you're ready to add this serum to your routine, here are some hydrating picks worth trying out:
