There’s nothing quite as upsetting than noticing how dull your skin looks in the mirror every day. You might be dedicatedly spending big bucks on cleansers, sheet masks, and moisturisers, but that ‘lit from within’ glow still eludes you. Well, fret not because we have figured out what the problem is. Your skincare shelf is missing a few essential ingredients and the right bottle of serum that can actually accentuate the overall health and radiance of your skin.

Wondering what exactly those ingredients are and where to get them? We break it down for you below:

 

 

Gluta Boost C

Gluta Boost C

If you’ve been trying hard to find an ingredient that lends a brightening effect to the skin, your search should stop at Gluta Boost C. Derived from the combination of Glutathione (called the master of all antioxidants) and Vitamin C, Gluta Boost C carries super potent actives that make your skin appear smooth and glow from within. Interestingly, glutathione is known to promote light melanin (pheomelanin) in the skin that visibly lightens dark spots and blemishes and reveals brighter-looking skin.

 

Vitamin B3+

Vitamin B3+

Bookmark this one ingredient and add it to your skincare arsenal if you've been dreaming of achieving glowing skin. Also called niacinamide, vitamin B3 is a skincare treasure trove. Its antioxidant properties shield the skin from damage caused by UV rays while also reducing pigmentation and redness. The best thing? It is suitable not just for normal and dry skin types but also for sensitive skin. With constant use of Vitamin B3, expect your skin to be super moisturised.

 

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid

By now, you must’ve heard hyaluronic acid being mentioned in skincare routines a thousand times, but do you know why exactly is it being favoured by everyone? This ingredient that even beauty-conscious celebrities are hooked on to, packs a serious punch and helps achieve that long-lasting glowing skin. It strengthens the skin’s natural (lipid) barrier and locks in moisture for a visibly plumper skin texture. If your dull skin is also showing signs of sagging, trust hyaluronic acid to tighten it, increase new cell generation and restore your natural complexion.

 

Pond’s Spotless Glow Serum

Pond’s Spotless Glow Serum

Now that you know the key ingredients your bottle of serum MUST have, your final stop should be the newly launched Pond’s Spotless Glow Serum. The good news is that this serum is budget-friendly, priced at just ₹449 for 30ml (amazing, right?) and combines the power of all three ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, vitamin B3+ and gluta boost C. It is 60X more effective than a typical Vitamin C serum and using it will provide the skin with hydration for a softer and lifted look.
