Jennifer Aniston has credited Swisscode Pure Hyaluron serum as the product behind her enviable, age-defying looks.  But what is it about this formula that makes it an effective anti-aging product? And is it right for you?

The secret to Jen's perennially glowing complexion has turned beauty editors around the world into detectives, sleuthing their way into her skincare routine regimen (if you find this interesting, you might also want to know where Jennifer Aniston's jeans are from). She's not the only celeb fan of this serum though. Former Friends co-star Courtney Cox is reportedly also a user, as is actress Emma Thompson.

Packed with a high concentration of clinical-grade hyaluronic acid, the serum claims to increase skin moisture levels by 20 percent in under two hours. This is also helped along by glycerin—another humectant beloved by dermatologists.  


Jennifer Aniston's serum—what you need to know about the formula

Hyaluronic acid is a key ingredient in Jennifer Aniston's favorite serum. This is worth noting because most people plump for one of the best retinol serums when trying to achieve a youthful glow. It's worth understanding the differences between hyaluronic acid vs retinol before splurging on either.

The key to Pure Hyaluron's success lies in the different weights of hyaluronic acid in the formula: the small molecules penetrate into the skin to bind water to collagen and elastin fibres, while the heavier molecules sit on the skin's surface, plumping up wrinkles. 

Who should use Jennifer Aniston's serum?

This serum is suitable for all skin types. But we particularly recommend it as part of a skincare routine for dry skin because of its super hydrating qualities. 

If your skin is sensitive to fragrance then you might find this irritates your skin barrier as it contains perfume. 

How to use Jennifer Aniston's go-to serum

Wash your hands thoroughly before you start. Then massage 2-3 drops into clean skin twice a day (see our guide to double cleansing to make sure your skin is perfectly clean). Using gentle circular motions, work from the chin up to the forehead. 

As far as complementary ingredients are concerned, layer a vitamin C capsule over the top for additional skin-brightening benefits and lock all the goodness in with the best moisturizer you can afford.

Jen also uses a gold-plated facial roller as part of her routine too. If this is something that appeals then read our guides to the benefits of gua sha and the best facial rollers. Though keep in mind we don't include her bourgeois model because we think you can achieve the same results with cheaper models.
