Top Skin Care Ingredients

There are definitely tons and tons of ingredients that people are skeptical about using within their skin care routine based on what they might have heard through social media, word of mouth, etc.

The number one rule in skin care is that everyone’s skin is different, so what may work for your friend may not for you and that’s okay. So what ingredients are beneficial for your skin? Let’s get right into it.

Vitamin C- An antioxidant that stimulates synthesis of collagen which helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C also assists to help make the skin brighter and take away that dullness in the skin.

Retinol- An ingredient that many people swear by. It helps increase the cell production while also unclogging pores to make the skin appear fresh, glowy and plump. Retinol is something your skin needs to get used to so creating a consistent routine with it is key. Do not use it everyday if you are first starting out.

Hyaluronic Acid- Everyone loves the dewy, glowy glass-skin look and hyaluronic acid is a big help in achieving that look. It hydrates the skin, helps reduce scarring, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Especially great in the winter months to give your skin an extra boost of hydration.

Peptides- A skincare ingredient that has definitely taken off in 2022 and for good reason. Peptides are chains of amino acids that support the skin barrier. They also help the skin appear firmer, even tone and reduce acne.

BHA- BHA is one of the exfoliating acids in the skincare world that breaks down buildup for clearer looking skin and pores. This is another product you should start out slow in using and with time, can switch to using it everyday.

With some of these ingredients, always make sure nothing will interfere with using them. Double check medications, especially with retinol, and know what ingredients are able to mix and what don’t.

If you don’t already, start to incorporate some of these ingredients into your skin care routine and achieve that natural glow!
