Which ingredients are beneficial for your skin type?

Deciding which ingredients to include in your skincare can be very hard. They key to choosing the right ingredient for your skin type and/or skin concerns is knowing the benefits of each ingredient. High quality medical grade skincare are especially beneficial. Look for products that contain:

  1. Hyaluronic acid: It is found naturally in the body but as we age, it depletes. Using hyaluronic acid on the skin has many benefits like stimulation of collagen which helps plump and rejuvenate the skin. Hyaluronic acid is also a great hydrate to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is great for all skin types and concerns. 
  2. Retinol: Retinol is a popular anti-aging ingredient derived from vitamin A. As we age, our skin cell turnover slows down. Retinol works by accelerating the skins cell turnover, therefore, it prevents and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol is also a good ingredient for acne prone skin since it exfoliates and renews skin cells. 
  3. Salicylic Acid: Is a beta-hydroxy-acid. Salicylic acid is oil loving which is why it is commonly used for acne. Salicylic acid helps with clearing the pore and oil control. Salicylic acid is also great for brightening hyperpigmentation. Salicylic acid is best for normal, combination, or oily skin. 
  4. Glycolic Acid: Glycolic acid is one of the most popular alpha-hydroxy-acids. Its small molecular size allows it to penetrate deep into the skin. Some of the benefits of glycolic acid are evening skin tone, diminishes fine lines, removes dead skin cells. Glycolic acid is safe for all skin types.
