There are many skincare ingredients which benefit your skin in different ways but there are a few ingredients we've always trusted. Even if you're not really a skincare junkie, you must've heard about antioxidants, AHAs, retinol, etc. because these are the 'superstars' of this business. While all the products have targeted benefits, these superstar ingredients pace up the healing process and help in addressing all your skincare issues effectively. RetinolRetinol
, also called vitamin A, is a fat-soluble vitamin in the vitamin A family. It has antiaging effects and can help clear acne. Retinol increases skin cell production (proliferation). It helps unclog pores. Retinol also exfoliates your skin and increases collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a fresher, plump appearance.Grape ResveratrolResveratrol
, a phytoalexin antioxidant found in red grapes, has been shown to have both chemopreventive and therapeutic effects against many diseases and disorders, including those of the skin. Studies have shown protective effects of resveratrol against ultraviolet radiation mediated oxidative stress and cutaneous damages including skin cancer.
Resveratrol also has anti-inflammatory, skin-soothing properties that help minimize redness and inflammation, making it a choice ingredient for people with rosacea, eczema, and other related skin conditions.Glycolic AcidGlycolic acid
is a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). Alpha hydroxy acids are natural acids found in foods. Glycolic acid works by speeding up cell turnover. In other words, it dissolves the bonds that hold skin cells together. In effect, your skin is able to shed dead skin cells more quickly than it would on its own. Glycolic acid also helps reverse sun damage to the skin.
