My skin is more skewed towards combination/dehyrdated and moisturisers just doesn't cut out for me. At my current skincare regime, oils are my current effective moisturisers now and I am incorporating products containing hyaluronic acid to increase skin hydration. Honestly, before I would venture into using new products, I would usually do a background check to understand certain ingredients and benefits. Here is a quick background of Hyaluronic Acid.

water reservoir and an ideal lubricant. HA, when incorporated into cosmetics, leads to a perceptible and visible improvement in skin condition.
