Ever wish you knew exactly what ingredients to look for so you knew exactly what product to buy, targeting your specific skin and beauty issue(s) and desires?
I know, for me, ingredients of a product will either make me want the product or not. They must be pure (nature-derived), healthy and organic (or, mostly) for my skin.
So, now, after reading an issue of Cosmopolitan, we’ll have this handy go-to list as a resource for when we’re in need of some beauty help. 🙂
Here we go!
- uneven texture – use retinol to boost cell turnover for a healthy complexion
- discoloration – phytic acid – fades everything from sun spots to acne scars and niacinamide to prevent future pigmentation
- oily skin moisturizer – hyaluronic acid – creates balance
- dry skin moisturizer – ceramides – cocoon skin, leaving it feeling silky-smooth
- moisturizing body wash – sulfate-free
- face oil – rich in vitamin C, rosehip and sea buckthorn berry – evens skin tone and boosts firmness
- body oil – macadamia and avocado – makes skin glisten!
- SPF for the face – 50 and sweatproof
- SPF for the body – zinc – amazing at preventing burns
- dry skin cleanser – jojoba and aloe – face won’t feel tight post-wash
- oily skin cleanser – charcoal – ‘sucks gunk from pores’ and salicylic acid ‘zaps zits’
- A.M. eye treatment – peptides – plumps thin under-eye skin
- P.M. eye treatment – pop on eye patches
- brightening mask – AHA and glycolic acid – resurfaces the skin, leaving a glow
- wrinkles – hyaluronic acid and collagen – repair skin damage
- acne – adapalene (a retinoid) – regulates cell turnover to prevent clogged pores and reduce redness
- at-home peel – gentle fruit acids for 14 days and then, something rich in glycolic and salicylic acid for 14 days
- lip-plumping – restylane and restylane-L – allover volume; restylane silk – subtle enhancements; juvederm ultra XC – a ‘plush, pillowy effect’; juvederm volbella XC – defines the lip line and treats fine lines around the mouth
So, there you go. Let’s go for the natural healthy beauty products with great ingredients!
