Jennifer Aniston's serum of choice is one piece of beauty intel we'd all like to be privy to. 

Luckily, we don't have to work hard to find it, as the actor has credited Swisscode Pure Hyaluron serum as the product behind her enviable, glowing skin. And what's more, the highly prized product on many skincare fans' wishlists is currently on a huge discount and flying off the shelves.

So what is it about this formula that makes it one of the best skincare products to replicate Jen's California girl glow? And is it right for you? Let's find out.

Jennifer Aniston's serum—what you need to know

The secret to Jen's perennially glowing complexion has turned beauty editors around the world into detectives, sleuthing their way into her skincare routine. And guess what? That juicy, dewy glow we all want to replicate is largely thanks to this serum, formulated with hero skincare ingredient, hyaluronic acid. 

The key to Swisscode 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 fibers, while the heavier molecules sit on the skin's surface, plumping up the skin texture. 

This is worth noting because most people plump for one of the best retinol creams when trying to achieve a youthful glow. While both can be used successfully in the same routine, it's worth understanding the differences between hyaluronic acid vs retinol before splurging on either.

Jen is not the only celeb fan of this serum though. Former Friends co-star Courtney Cox is reportedly also a user, as is actor Emma Thompson.

Our beauty team recommends...

Swisscode Pure Hyaluron Serum | RRP: £85 Now £50.58

Packed with a high concentration of clinical-grade hyaluronic acid, Jennifer Aniston's serum of choice 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.  

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 | RRP: £5.90

If you're after a more affordable way to incorporate the key ingredient in Jen's go-to serum into your own skincare routine, this serum will deliver the hydration benefits of the quenching humectant ingredient, with a friendlier price tag. 

How to use Jennifer Aniston's go-to 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. 

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, then 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. If this is something that appeals then read our guides to the benefits of gua sha and the best facial rollers—used in combination with that super-dewy serum, you can't go wrong!
