5 Ingredients That Your Skin Should Not Be Without

5 Ingredients That Your Skin Should Not Be Without
With so many ingredients claiming to be the next big thing, it is hard to know which ones truly have the most positive impact on your skin (with sufficient research to back up these claims). In our list, 6 ingredients went above and beyond the call of duty to maintain skin supple and firm. Drum roll please ... for the cream of the crop!


1. Hyaluronic Acid
Keeping your skin well hydrated is key for ageless skin. Being able to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid helps maintain skin supple, elastic and radiantly youthful. With daily usage, your skin's water content is significantly improved. Fine lines and wrinkles will begin to plump out becoming less visible day after day. A must have for all skin types, even oily skin!


2. Retinol
Retinol is by far the most researched and tested ingredient in the skin care industry. It is also the only ingredient that is recognized by the FDA to be effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Excellent choice for several types of skin concerns like aging skin, hyperpigmentation, and acne. Effectively increases collagen production, encourages cell turnover, and has an overall positive effect on the structural health of skin.

3. Caffeine
According to Dr. Oz, caffeine is the only ingredient that will help with dark circles and undereye puffiness. It has been clinically proven to increase circulation, also helping with skin concerns like cellulite and loss of elasticity.


4. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)
These exfoliating acids are essential tools in the skin care industry. They help to stimulate cell turnover, penetrating deep into the skin encouraging dead and dull skin cells to be removed and replaced by newer & healthier skin. Safe enough to be used at home, yet effective enough to have a significant impact on skin's overall clarity and radiance. Help with a wide range of skin concerns from hyperpigmentation, acne, dryness, wrinkles, elasticity and more!


5. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate
This is the most stable and non irritating form of Vitamin C. Studies have shown that it improves the effectiveness of suncreen by 4-times, when it is used in combination with Vitamin E and applied underneath sunscreen.

    I agree one can’t buy it all unless we know how to use it . At 55 I would prefer a routine written out. Please advise

    Ok. You have mentioned 3 different serums here. How does one use 3 different serums ( plus moisturizer/night cream) in a daily routine??
