Essential skin care Shopping Tips .
When choosing skin care, the price won’t help you find the best options. Ingredients will be listed in order of highest to lowest concentration . If you are seeking out a product for specific ingredients, but those ingredients are listed at the end, then that product isn't worth your money. With such a small percentage in the overall product, you won't experience the benefits of the ingredients at the end of the list. Look for skincare backed by science that include some of the following ingredients;
Ceramides and hyaluronic acid.
Both ingredients are important moisturising agents that are naturally found in the skin. Look for hyaluronic acid in the serum form, and glycerins and ceramides in lotions and creams.
L-Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
Vitamin C specifically the l-ascorbic acid form, is an antioxidant that works to reverse damage from UV radiation and stimulate collagen production.
Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Vitamin E offers similar properties as Vitamin C and works best when the two are combined as a skincare power duo.
Retinol is a key ingredient to seek out in products for your nighttime routine. It works to turnover skin cells and stimulate collagen.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
This ingredient is great for controlling oil while also hydrating the skin and evening out skin tone.
Natural doesn't always mean better. Seek advice.
