If you're a female, odds are you've had times where sleeping with your makeup on was the only option because you were so freakin' exhausted, but If you do this enough times, your skin suffers and ages you faster and your pores get clogged, causing breakouts. Even if you're a person who hasn't slept with their makeup on, harsh elements in the environment push your skin to its limits on a daily basis, and sadly, we are also aging, which isn't helping our constant search for getting younger, healthier skin.
Thankfully, some skin care ingredients are here to save the day! Here we will look at what I look for when buying skincare and how these ingredients do good for your skin as well as two products I tried this month that changed my skincare routine!
1. Hyaluronic Acid
Restores skin by rehydrating and thickening skin. This baby is found naturally in your body with the highest concentration in your eye fluids and joints. Hyaluronic Acid is used for joint disorders, eye surgeries, and lip fillers as well as helping to heal skin with wounds or burns.
2. N-Acetyl Glucosamine
Applied to the skin to reduce dark spots caused by aging and sun exposure. This ingredient will help brighten and even out your skin tone. If you have spots or sun damage this is the ingredient to look out for.
3. Salicylic Acid
Used if you have pimples, acne, or warts on your face. This ingredient dries up your skin, and could possibly make you peel, which is why you want to apply it on spots, areas, or every other day.
These 3 ingredients are my "product must haves" to keep my skin looking and feeling young. This February, here are two products sitting on my shelf that I have tried and tested and highly recommend.
Avya Anti-aging Power Serum
Their exclusive formula blends peony, turmeric, and neem extracts along with pure encapsulated Vitamin C to boost radiance, restore even complexion and protect your beautiful skin, no matter your skin tone. I use this day and night, their pump is very generous and it's more than enough to cover my face and neck. This also smells like heaven itself, if this did nothing but smell good, I'd still be applying it religiously just to feel like the pearly gates have opened in my bathroom.
Eye Bright Cream:
Regardless of your skin tone, this breakthrough formula combines our exclusive blend of peony, turmeric and neem extracts with potent topical caffeine and Cassava Matrix Technology for instant lift, brightness, and reduction of fine lines in addition to the long-term reduction of puffiness and dark circles. I use this twice a day and this pump is also incredibly generous. I love the way it brightens my eyes right after using it and feels amazing on the skin.
These two products have been my go-to this February and have been an amazing transition from the harsh winter season. The absorbancy is incredible and I can feel the elasticity of my skin every time I apply this. My skin tone has also looked more even and fine lines have significantly reduced.
What are your favorite skin care ingredients and how have they helped your skin improve, I'd love to know!
