Why don’t people ever notice when your skin looks good? They immediately assume it’s your hair. I don’t know if this is a scientific phenomenon but I know it to be true. This is the reason I like short lasting ingredients like VitC, Hyaluronic Acid, and Niacinamide to be used during the day. So the people around you can appreciate it and tell you how pretty you look. The best compliment is when we are told we look like we’ve been on vacation. Which is why I always get “beach waves” when I go to Dry Bar.
Three great skincare ingredients that illicit those WOWs are:
Vit C: an antioxidant, that lightens and brightens your skin. The most effective version of VitC is in serum form. It should appear very pale yellow or even clear. It has a very short life span, as the product starts to oxidize it will turn dark brown and become less effective. So don’t “save” the product for a special occasion. Use it up and let’s see you glow.
Hyaluronic Acid: a moisture holding molecule. It is found naturally in your body and helps to keep your skin hydrated, plump, and supple. I also like this product in serum form. I feel you get greater results when the molecules can really penetrate your skin!
Niacinamide: also known as Vit B. This ingredient will really improve the skin’s glow. Again, let’s use it serum form. You will layer your moisturizer on over the niacinamide. The moisturizer assists in product penetration and preventing the serum from evaporating off the surface of your skin.
