ICYDK, you can have dehydrated skin no matter the skin type. It simply means that your skin lacks the hydration it needs to look plump, even-toned, and radiant. To correct this, you can turn to hydrating serums to replenish that moisture into the deeper layers of your skin. These fast-absorbing thin consistency liquids usually contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and/or vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) that act as the main hydrators for your parched complexion. Want to know which of the best hydrating serums are available in Singapore? Read on.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
This no-frills oil-free hydrating serum contains vegan hyaluronic acid of different molecular weights to help it penetrate deep into the skin. It is also formulated with vitamin B5 to help hydrate skin on the surface. Head over to escentials.com to get one and try it for yourself.

This lightweight hydrating gel serum contains pro-vitamin B5 and pineapple ceramide that help attract and lock in moisture into the skin.
