Skincare isn’t just about one ingredient, but a multitude of ingredients interacting or conflicting with one another. And trust us, it can get confusing knowing which ingredients pair together! At least you’ll have 3 powerhouse ingredient combos to remember for the future.
#1. Retinoid & Hyaluronic Acid
Opposites really do attract, and this pair is proof! Retinoids can be quite irritating for the skin, but Hyaluronic softens the blow thanks to its hydrating properties. Hyaluronic acid beckons in the water to offset that dryness retinoids can create.
#2. Salicylic Acid & Niacinamide
These two are great ingredients on their own, but together…they bring out something special in one another. Salicylic acid can unclog those pores and control acne/sebum levels while niacinamide reduces hyperpigmentation, redness, pore appearance and sebum. So if you need two ingredients that just go hand in hand together, look no further than salicylic acid and niacinamide.
#3. Retinoids & Peptides
This is a quality pair already well known in the skincare industry, being uses in numerous products on the market. Peptides come in a variety of sizes and scientists still are trying to understand the full benefits they possess. Especially when it comes to anti-aging. And we all know that ties in well with any retinoid! But in addition to this, peptides can be very moisturizing which helps to balance the dryness and irritation that comes with retinoids.
