I think it’s fair to say at some point in our lives that we all battle some sort of skin issue, ranging from annoying eye bags, sun spots, rough skin, or the occasional pimple. With so many products making amazing claims about resolving skins issues, how do you know if the ingredients are actually going to help your unwanted skin problems? Here are a few reasons why you might want to look for ingredients like Glycolic, Hyaluronic and Salicylic Acid in some of the new facial cleansers, toners, serums, or face creams. Each has a specific purpose, and might be something you want to try!
Have skin discoloration/uneven skin tone?
Glycolic Acid – Glycolic Acid is a known exfoliator which may help with the shedding of old, dead, discolored skin cells, and brings new, fresh, even skin cells to the surface. Glycolic acid may help your skin look brighter and feel smoother.
Have wrinkles/fine lines?
Hyaluronic Acid – Hyaluronic acid is known for its ability to absorb a large amount of water, filling out the skin to help make it look young, moisturized, firm, and full. By drawing moisture into the skin hyaluronic acid may assist with increasing skins elasticity, which some believe makes skin appear more youthful.
Have Under Eye Bags?
Green Tea Bags – Soak your green tea bag in warm water for a minute or two and then store the tea bags on a plate in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Take the bags out and place under eyes. The caffeine in the green tea has anti-inflammatory properties which may help decrease swelling. Also try to avoid high sodium foods. High sodium intake make cause water retention in the facial region.
Have An Occasional Zit or Acne?
Salicylic Acid – This ingredient works by penetrating the follicle and aims to remove unwanted dead skin cells. By removing the irritant, it might help return your skin to its normal skin replacement cycle. To prevent future breakouts you should continue the use of your products containing salicylic acid.
