I'm thinking of trying a new cream that's just come onto the market in the UK, it contains Matrixyl, Argireline, Skinergium, and Hyaluronic acid

I've heard such erratic reports of the first two ingredients and haven't heard of the last two. Can anyone enlighten me what Skinergium and Hyaluronic acid do? Does this sound like an effective product?

Sorry, the product doesn't give percentages in the ingredients- I know that's the info you'd really need to make an estimate.

Dr. Leslie Baumann ( a noted dermatologist and author of "The Skin Type Solution") claims that hyaluronic acid can actually dry the skin out when applied topically. It's true that HA moisturizes the skin when it is contained in the skin because it draws water to it so effectively. In fact, HA is one of your skin's prinicipal natural moisturizers. But the molecule has to be inside your skin to do that, and when applied topically, the molecule can't get into your skin because it's too large. So the theory is that it will just sit on the surface of your skin and draw water out of your skin, since it draws water to it so effectively. This, of course, may dry the skin out. One other person on this site claimed that HA did dry her(or his) skin out, and when she(he) stopped applying it topically, the probelm subsided. Dr. Howard Murad (another noted dermatologist)has taken a different approach:increase the body's natural production of HA by taking glucosamine sulfate supplements(glucosamine is a precursor to HA) along with other nutrients needed for the production of HA. I don't know yet if this approach actually works in actual practice, but if it does it would be more effective, because ideally you want HA to be "in" your skin, not "on" your skin.
