29 Sep Hot Beauty Trend- Hydraluron
Ah yes. An item Caroline Hirons convinced me to get. Mrs Hirons- making your girl broke since 2013.
Hydraluron’s primary ingredient is a pure form of hyaluronic acid, which is an incredibly hydrating substance that holds up to ‘1000 times its weight in water’ and provides below the surface hydration, leading to visibly glow-y and plumped up skin.
This serum isn’t only for dry, dehydrated skin. It is also recommended for oily skin (hurray!) as it can help control oil production. This makes sense because oil glands go into overdrive when the suckers feel your skin is dehydrated. Which is why it is NEVER a good idea to skip moisturiser if you have oily skin (I used to do this, but I know better now).
It is important to note that this isn’t a moisturiser replacement, it is a moisture BOOSTER that will suck the water from your moisturiser deep into your skin. Genius stuff really.
I use a pea sized amount all over my face in the morning after using my toner. I then follow up with moisturiser (currently La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo) and sunscreen (La Roche Posay Anthelios 50).
Hydraluron in my humble opinion is a fantastic product. It has made a small difference in my oil production (I’ll take ANY improvement there) but more importantly it makes my skin feel smooth and soft, and definitely gives a moisture kick to my Effaclar Duo which I quite like but isn’t moisturising enough.
Have you tried Hydraluron or any products with Hyaluronic Acid?
Let me know,
