If you follow the beauty industry, you should already be familiar with layering skincare products. Combining products in your skincare routine with ingredients that enhance each other’s effectiveness can meet your skincare needs. Here’s how to create the perfect dynamic duos.
Hyaluronic Acid + Antioxidants
Fine lines and wrinkles can be tackled with the proper ingredients. Hyaluronic Acid is a gentle and potent moisture-binding molecule. Hyaluronic acid on its own can retain and attract moisture to help keep skin plump and hydrated. When you mix Hyaluronic Acid with an antioxidant, however, it holds the secret to smooth, flawless, and hydrated skin. Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a regenerating antioxidant that also contains other Vitamins like C and E which are known for their soothing and anti-aging properties. Our Ultimate Anti-Wrinkle Duo includes a gel-water-based Hyaluronic Serum and bioactive crème containing ALA to strengthen the skin and reduce fine lines.
Vitamin C + Vitamin B5
Separately, Vitamin C is an ingredient used to lighten dark spots and protects against future dark spots appearing. When used with Vitamin B5 it’s even better. Panthenol, also known as Vitamin B5, improves dullness, minimizes pores, and evens complexion. The Skin Tone Correcting Duo contains the C Shield Smart Serum to brighten and improve signs of aging and the Botanica Souffle Crème helps calm inflammation and redness, making it beneficial for those with sensitive and acne skin. When these two antioxidants are combined, they protect your skin against harmful damage.
Collagen + Enzymes
If dullness due to stress, lack of sleep, or dehydration is your main concern then these two ingredients are the best combination for you. Collagen and active ingredients like enzymes help to revitalize and give skin a boost. Enzymes like Pumpkin or Papaya exfoliate dead skin cells and reveals a smoother complexion. Collagen provides enough hydration. The Plump and Polish Duo is a win-win combination for supple, plump, and glowing skin.
When it comes to skincare ingredients there are some that work together and some that work against each other. Pairing the proper ones can answer our skin-prayers. So, follow these simple rules for mixing and matching and remember that products that work well together, should stay together.
