When it comes to skincare ingredients, it is not just the superstar that does all the work and delivers results! Potent combinations of ingredients can also be focused on to help deal with your particular skin needs. These combinations not only support each other’s tasks but also elevate their effects. And isn’t two ingredients working together always better than relying on just one? We think it is! Especially when it comes to seasonal skin needs like winter dryness, moisture loss and irritation.
We compiled some awesome skincare with potent ingredient combinations that do just that for your skin needs; check them out...
- 01. Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E
- 02. Zinc and Witch Hazel
- 03. Niacinamide and Retinol
- 04. Glycerin and Allantoin
- 05. Camellia seed oil and chia seed oil
01. Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E
Your skin tends to get extremely dehydrated during the winters thanks to the low humidity levels and cold winds. But using ingredients with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E can help you deal with this issue. Hyaluronic acid brings moisture to the surface of your skin and locks it in. Vitamin E works as a powerful antioxidant to protect your skin from UV damage that leads to moisture loss. Together, this combo can help maintain the hydration levels of your skin all day long.
02. Zinc and Witch Hazel
If you suffer from an excessively oily skin type, this mattifying combination will come in handy for the winter. Instead of skipping a moisturiser, use one with zinc and witch hazel in it. Witch hazel is an effective sebum regulator while zinc can help heal and rejuvenate damaged winter skin. Zinc can also inhibit UV damage caused by the harsh winter sun.
03. Niacinamide and Retinol
In the skincare community, niacinamide is considered an all-rounder that helps protect your skin’s lipid barrier and boost immunity. Pair it with the anti-ageing properties of retinol and you have yourself a versatile product that protects from the harmful effects of the cold weather while keeping your skin looking youthful!
04. Glycerin and Allantoin
This combo is particularly good for people who suffer from winter-induced skin irritation! While glycerin is a powerful humectant that helps lock in moisture in your skin, allantoin is a trendy botanical ingredient that works as an excellent soothing agent for the skin. We have a feeling that the ingredient is on the verge of going viral, so remember, you read it here first!
05. Camellia seed oil and chia seed oil
When it comes to face oil, we trust plant-based ingredients much more than synthetic ones. Camellia seed oil has emerged as a powerful antioxidant and moisturising agent, especially in K-beauty. And chia seed oil’s fatty acid content is known for retaining the moisture content of the skin. This means that the combo can be a godsend for super dry skin types.
