  • Hyaluronic acid – After you cleanse and tone your skin, add a serum with hyaluronic acid in it. Hyaluronic acid molecules pack an insane amount of hydration in them which is easily absorbed. Your blemish prone skin needs hydration to repair the skin barrier, and this will provide it.
  • Caffeine – Just like a strong cup of coffee can kick start your metabolism; caffeine infused skincare products can give a boost to skin renewal. Also caffeine is packed with antioxidants which reduce damage to the skin from exposure to the sun.
  •  Polyglutamic acid – Add this new ingredient to your jargon as it is here to stay. It is a potent source of hydration and helps relieve your skin. It improves elasticity and enhances your skin’s ability to repair itself.

  • Salicylic acid – This ingredient is a lipophilic substance, meaning it can penetrate through oily layers on your skin and reach into the pores and clean them. It is a mild exfoliating agent, and works by dissolving dead skin cells and rough patches of skin, especially in blemish prone skin.
  • Hyaluronic acid – Follow up the cleanser with a dose of hydration for your skin with a serum or a moisturiser with hyaluronic acid in it. Your skin gets to repairing itself during the night and there is increased blood flow to the skin while you sleep. So it makes sense to provide your skin all the nutrition it needs during its repair time.
  • Retinol – This is a power ingredient for improving the tone of the skin, evening out pigmentation and improving the overall texture of the skin. Using this will increase blood flow (which in turn helps skin heal), and boosts collagen levels in the skin.
