There are so many skin care products on the market that it's sometimes overwhelming. While it's true that many brands are good, it's equally true that certain brands have an edge when it comes to beautifying your skin. What is that edge you may ask? Well, it's simply their ingredient make up.
When it comes to having beautiful skin (and who doesn't want that right?), there are four key ingredients to look for in your skin care products that will help to promote fresh radiant skin. The following skin care ingredients are very beneficial for healthy skin:
- Peptides - Helps to heal blemished skin and is also effective for improving skin elasticity
- Vitamin C - A natural antioxidant that's effective to improve overall skin appearance
- Retinol A - Destroys free radicals that are in the skin and reduces the production of acne causing oils
- AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) - Helps reduce wrinkles and increases moisture in the skin
Using skin products with at least 2 or 3 of these ingredients will prove very beneficial. Of course, it's also important to use sunscreen and if you can find a product that has a sun protection factor of at least 30, that's a bonus.
