Six Super Skincare Ingredients

Skincare is an essential part of maintaining healthy and youthful looking skin. In order to achieve the best results, it’s important to use products that contain effective ingredients. In this blog post, we’ll be discussing six of the best skincare ingredients that you should look for in your products.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in the body and is known for its ability to retain moisture. When applied to the skin, it creates a barrier that helps to lock in moisture and keep the skin plump and hydrated. So, if you have dry skin or want to keep your skin hydrated, look for products that contain hyaluronic acid. We recommend GERnétic’s Cells Life Serum which is particularly beneficial for dehydration of the eye area and neck.

Retinoids, which are derivatives of vitamin A, are known for their anti-aging and acne-fighting properties. They work by increasing cell turnover, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and by unclogging pores, which helps to reduce the formation of acne. If you’re looking to keep your skin looking youthful and smooth or say goodbye to acne, it’s a good idea to search for products that contain retinoids. We love Medik8’s Crystal Retinal which is unmatched in its age-defying power.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. It can also help to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Vitamin C is most effective when used in a serum form. If you want to protect your skin from sun damage and brighten your complexion, you should definitely add products that contain vitamin C to your skincare collection. Using the antioxidant power of vitamin C and E, Medik8’s C-Tetra Serum brightens and smooths the complexion while fighting free radicals to reduce visible signs of ageing. We definitely recommend this product!

AHA’s and BHA’s

AHA’s and BHA’s are exfoliating ingredients that work by removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. AHA’s, or alpha hydroxy acids, are water-soluble and work by dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells, while BHA’s, or beta hydroxy acids, are oil-soluble and work by penetrating deep into the pores to remove excess oil and dead skin cells. These ingredients can help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. So, give your skin the care it deserves and look for products that contain AHA’s and BHA’s. Medik8’s Surface Radiance Cleanse includes an exfoliating AHA/BHA complex of mandelic, lactic and salicylic acid as well as glycerin for deep cleansing and pore refining, without any stinging or dryness.

Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is a multi-tasking ingredient that can help to reduce redness, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and strengthen the skin barrier. It can also help to reduce the production of excess oil and improve the overall hydration of the skin. Medik8’s Clarity Peptides are formulated with a 10% Niacinamide-Infused Peptide Complex to nourish and clarify the skin, revealing luminous smooth skin.

Ceramides are lipids that are found naturally in the skin and are responsible for maintaining the integrity of the skin barrier. When the skin barrier is compromised, it can lead to dryness, irritation, and sensitivity. Ceramides help to strengthen the skin barrier and keep the skin moisturised and healthy. If you want to maintain a healthy skin barrier and keep your skin moisturised, incorporate ceramides into your skincare routine. Medik8’s Advanced Night Restore Moisturiser uses the power of ceramides to nourish and hydrate the skin, revealing a smoothed, restored and plumped complexion. You will absolutely love how this product makes your skin look!
