Who doesn’t want glowing skin that can shine brighter than the sun during golden hour? We sure do! Achieving luminous skin can seem like a task, but we got just the cheat sheet for you with all the ingredients you need to achieve that radiant lit-from-within-glow. Read on to know the five beauty ingredients you need to add to your skincare routine, STAT!
01. Hyaluronic acid
The moisturising properties of hyaluronic acid make it a popular skincare ingredient for plump, radiant skin. It lubricates the skin tissues at high altitudes with the necessary moisture so that the skin becomes soft, firm and supple. Hyaluronic acid is widely used in oral supplements and skincare formulations such as skin-restoring creams, serums, and skin-enhancing injections. Fine lines and wrinkles at an early age are often caused by dry and dehydrated skin, which also responds to deep moisturising, making the skin look softer and more youthful. Use the Pond’s Bright Beauty Spot-less Glow Serum infused with Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin B3 and Gluta Boost C for the perfect, radiant glow!
02. Vitamin E
Vitamin E, or tocopherol, is a fat-soluble vitamin with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It soothes skin irritations and reduces redness and inflammation associated with a variety of skin problems. Due to its heavy texture and consistency, it is usually limited to components in night serums. Still, it is an essential part of your PM routine to keep the skin under the eyes glowing and comfortable. Regular use of vitamin E for the skin improves natural radiance and accelerates skin cell regeneration.
Liquorice is an organic and natural ingredient that effectively fights sun damage, has anti-ageing properties, brightens and evens skin tone. It can also be combined with other popular ingredients like vitamin C or niacinamide to enrich their impact.
Antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Pomegranate Extract, Apple Stem Cells, etc., are known for their powerful barrier protection properties that help reduce daily oxidative stress on the skin. It's a good idea to take antioxidant supplements orally from time to time while incorporating them into your daily skincare routine for a natural glow. Vitamin C has collagen-promoting properties and protects the skin from harmful pollutants and the effects of light. So get on with adding it to your daily skincare routine by moisturising every day with the Lakmé 9to5 VitC+ Day Cream in the morning followed by the Lakmé 9to5 VitC+ facial serum. Repeat the same in the night, replacing the day cream with the Lakmé 9to5 VitC+ Night Cream. This Vitamin C power pack combo will ensure you a lit-from-within radiant glow and supple skin.
Alpha hydroxy acids such as lactic acid and glycolic acid in mild concentrations can be used at home to deeply exfoliate skin and slough off dead cells, bacteria, and debris to reveal brighter skin without the need. When used over a period of time, AHAs reduce age spots, blemishes, hyperpigmentation and enhance skin texture and tone.
