3 Skincare Ingredients That Your Skin Will Love

14 October 2020

In this day and age, there is more skincare available than ever before. With thousands of brands and products to choose from, varying between super low-budget skincare to luxury products that will cut a big chunk out of your bank account, the variety can be mind-boggling. 

Every single brand promises you that your skin will turn out more beautiful, glowing, clear and youthful if you use their products. So how do you know who to trust? Well, one way of doing this is by doing your own research on the ingredients that matter in skincare.

Of course, there is an almost infinite number of skincare ingredients that make up the products you love. It might be the ingredients in the Invisicrepe Body Balm that you really rely on, for example. So let’s take a look at just three of the ingredients you should watch out for when buying your next skincare product - and why your skin will love them!

Amaranthus Squalane

When shopping for facial oils, the choices can be endlessly frustrating. Our skin naturally produces oil, known as sebum - and if your skin over-produces oil, it can result in a shiny appearance with a likelihood of blackheads and acne too. But even for those of us with oily skin, facial oils are useful to replace some of the natural oils which are stripped away by cleansers and toners.

Amaranthus Squalane is an oil found in the Amaranthus plant. This oil is non-greasy and helps to keep your skin supple and youthful, without the oil-slick feel of some heavier oils. It’s a definite win for any product - your skin will love it.

Vitamin E

You may have seen Vitamin E used to advertise moisturisers by various brands. You can also buy Vitamin E oil which is applied straight to your face overnight. Many people also take this vitamin in an oral tablet once a day. But why is Vitamin E so good for your skin?

Vitamin E is key for helping your cells repair. It is an antioxidant, meaning that it helps get rid of toxins in your skin. If you get spots, discolouration, wrinkling or any other kind of facial blemishes, Vitamin E can accelerate the repair process of your skin, helping it to feel luscious and youthful again in no time. Try it today - you will not regret it.

Salicylic Acid

If you have spied any cleansers on the market containing salicylic acid, keep your eye on them. Although salicylic acid sounds like a scary leak from a chemistry lab, it is actually a fantastic ingredient for washing your face. Especially if you are acne-prone, this product works wonders on your skin.

This is because salicylic acid penetrates your skin, exfoliating away dead skin cells and bacteria, as well as oils, which get trapped in the skin and cause blemishes. Without stripping away your skin and making it feel dry and taut, salicylic acid gets rid of nasty bacteria which clumps in your pores. Get into it!

No matter your skin type, these three ingredients are the ones to watch for clear, youthful and moisturised skin.
