It’s the same when it comes to your skincare ingredients. Confused? Well, don’t be. All we’re trying to say is that certain skincare ingredients work best when paired together. They become more potent and deliver excellent results. Wanna know what these dynamic duos are? Scroll down to find out.
Antioxidants and SPF
Sunscreen is the number one product every girl needs in her life. This is the secret to flawless, spot-free and younger-looking skin. UV rays cause a lot of damage, making your skin age a lot faster than it should. But simply using a broad-spectrum sunscreen may not be enough to provide protection against free radicals. Therefore, you need to top this up with an antioxidant product for all-round protection against UVA and UVB rays, as well as, free radicals.
Salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid
Salicylic acid is amazing when it comes to dealing with acne. But unfortunately, it can be a little harsh on your skin, making your face appear inflamed and flaky. Therefore, salicylic acid works best when paired with a calming and moisturising skincare ingredient such as hyaluronic acid.
Vitamin C and E
Vitamin C is the most amazing source of antioxidant and delivers amazing skin nourishing properties. It is your one-stop-shop for achieving clear skin; It evens out the skin tone and delivers a host of anti-ageing benefits. But when vitamin C is paired with another antioxidant such as vitamin E, its efficacy improves. These vitamins together make for one of the most powerful antioxidants you will ever use.
