Hyaluronic acid is over-hyped – listed here are 7 elements which are simply as moisturizing


For as long as I can remember, hydration has been my top priority in skin care. I have combination skin that is dry especially in winter. Therefore, I have been known to reach for serums that are filled with ingredients that give a glittery, erased shine. As such, I am a recognized hyaluronic acid lover.

For quite some time now, this water-attracting skin care ingredient has been one of my favorites for adding oceanic moisture levels to my skin. If I see the ingredient in a serum or moisturizer, I am more likely to buy it. I just love this stuff so you can imagine my anger having to deal with it Hyaluronic acid isn't the only (or even the most effective) moisturizing ingredient out there. "(Hyaluronic acid) has always been used, but has gotten really lively over the past year," says Renée Rouleau, prominent beautician and CEO of her eponymous skin care line. "I think there is a renewed focus in the skin on hydration and barrier repair and this ingredient is riding the trend wave online right now and is winning the popularity contest for that reason. There are other comparable and better ingredients. "
