The Five Skincare Ingredients You Should Add To Your Regime

To ensure that my skincare regime is packed with all the goodness I need to protect myself from common skin woes, I always make sure it contains these five skincare ingredients. 

ingredients

#1: Hyaluronic Acid

This is one of the main and most common ingredient used to replenish moisture to skin. I cannot stress the importance of hydration as it is the key to achieving soft, supple skin. It also regulates cell renewal and maintains skin’s moisture and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, giving amazing benefits to dehydrated skin. Because it also plumps up skin, this helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The result: a soft, smooth and healthier-looking complexion.

#2: Ceramides

Ceramides are lipids molecules that help to hold skin cells together, forming a protective layer on the outermost part of the epidermis to help plump skin and retain moisture (think of it as the cement that helps stick bricks together). It is also used to replenish the natural lipids in our skin that gets lost from exposure to harsh environmental factors (ugh, pollution) and during the ageing process. They restore moisture, strengthen skin’s natural barrier and help protect it against environmental stresses. Because the ceramide levels in our skin decline with age, it is crucial to use skincare products that contain ceramides to ensure skin is well protected and does not lose its elasticity.
