The skincare sector is filled with mixed messages. For each skin specialist willing to hype an ingredient, there’s another armed with studies that disprove their theory. One day we are told hyaluronic acid is the Holy Grail for skin hydration however the next, someone’s pulled some bizarre stuff from a very niche vegetable and all of a sudden there’s a fresh skin hero in town.
