Just like the food we eat, the ingredients in our skincare products matter. Some skincare ingredients are more essential than others, and there are those that can even be harmful if used improperly.
When it comes to taking the best care of your skin, there are a few key ingredients that you should always look for in your skincare products. These ingredients can help to improve the health and appearance of your skin, so it's important to make sure they're included in the products you use on a regular basis.
Skincare expert New York Skin Solutions reviews these essential ingredients and explains how they benefit your skin. This article also highlights customer-favourite products for different skin types.
Best Skincare Ingredients That Really Work
Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin derivative of vitamin B3 and nicotinamide (a form of vitamin B3) that works with the natural substances in your skin. It reduces environmental damage because of its ability to improve the skin’s barrier. It also plays a role in helping the skin repair past damage.
If you are looking for a product to improve your complexion, be sure to check that niacinamide is listed in its ingredients. For example, you can use New York Skin Solutions’ AGF_Reverz Cleanser that’s designed for all skin types.
2. Hyaluronic acid
We lose collagen and hyaluronic acid naturally as we age, so the skin becomes dehydrated more quickly. Harsh weather conditions can also cause tiny breaks in the protective skin barrier, allowing water to escape. That's why creating a tailored hyaluronic acid skincare routine with moisturising products is important and beneficial.
When it comes to hydrated skin, few products deliver the way hyaluronic acid products do. This natural ingredient can hold up to 1000x its weight in water, and imparts resilience and firmness to your skin.
Additional perks of hyaluronic acid include its lightweight, watery nature and ability to lock in moisture from the environment and deeper dermis to hydrate the skin thoroughly. Hyaluronic acid is also excellent for all skin types. The ingredient is non-irritating and doesn’t cause allergic reactions. Check out New York Skin Solutions’ Hydro Perfect Serum as a start!
H3 3. Humectants
Glycerin is a natural humectant that keeps your skin soft, supple and hydrated. It improves the texture of your skin and protects it from harmful environmental aggressors. This makes it a valuable ingredient in skincare products like foaming wash as they can help to keep the skin hydrated for longer periods of time.
Benefits Of using glycerin-containing products -
- Moisturises skin
- Protects and heals
- Creates a calming effect on the skin
- Has anti-aging properties
- Repairs skin barrier
- Forms a protective layer
- Prevents acne
- Removes dead skin
4. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is found in skincare as L-ascorbic acid, an antioxidant. It helps to protect your skin cells from sun damage, air pollution, and other premature agers. Vitamin C is a safe and highly effective acid that, in the proper concentration, can reduce dullness, uneven skin tone, texture, and acne scarring while offsetting environmental aggressors. With continued use, you’ll notice brighter, glowing skin. New York Skin Solutions’ Aqua Intensive Serum is not only enriched with Vitamin C, but it also has collagen extract to increase your skin’s hydration.
Collagen is a significant component of your skin. It plays a role in maintaining the elasticity and strength of your skin. Look for products that contain hydrolyzed collagen or peptides, such as New York Skin Solutions’ Beauty Cream. Avoid products with synthetic ingredients which can irritate and harm your skin.
6. Sodium Hyaluronate
Sodium hyaluronate has great hydrating benefits that address several skin concerns caused by the lack of moisture in the skin. That's why it's becoming a popular ingredient in skincare products. The benefits include:
- Combating skin dryness
- Restoring and maintaining a moisturising barrier
- Leaving skin with a non-greasy glow.
- Keeping signs of aging at bay
- Improving breakout-prone skin by rebalancing the skin
