Increase skin’s ability to protect itself against UVB-induced skin damage.
One Thing's Green Tea Serum contains concentrated green tea and 8 types of hyaluronate. These are gweat because they work together to boost hydration for nourishing effects. In addition, they can assist to reduce visible signs of ageing.
If you combine this together with a caffeine serum you can achieve even better results because they work together to protect the skin.
Increase skin’s collagen production.
Start your routine with this toner and exfoliant, which helps balance the PH levels of your skin with glycolic acid. Then, follow up with a Vitamin C Serum like Innisfree Truecare Vitamin C 20 Ampoule. This will assist to target dull skin, dark spots and pigmentation.

This is a great skin boosting combination because the combination of acids and antioxidants targets a variety of anti aging concerns.
Retinol and niacinamide are a power couple because when used together they increase the tolerability of retinol.
Missha’s iconic Time Revolution Ampoule is made on a base of 10 types of Lactobacillus. Each have different effects that enhance skin’s moisture levels and elasticity. However, the real jewel in the crown is the combination of retinol with niacinamide because it works to brighten skin. It can also reduce the signs of aging.
Similarly, APLB’s luxurious anti-aging formula includes retinol and niacinamide. It also contains peptides, collagen, squalane, sodium hyaluronate. Further, it contains licorice and sea buckthorn, both of which are ideal ingredients for pigmented skin.
These two powerhouse ingredients work beautifully together in treating the appearance of fine lines. Retinol helps speed up skin cell turnover and increases collagen production, while peptides can assist to encourage tighter, firmer skin. Because they strength the links that hold skin layers together, pairing retinol and retinoids with peptides can help to achieve a smoother, firmer look for the skin.

Pairing your SPF with vitamin C can better protect your skin from the sun and free radical damage.
A 2013 study on the effectiveness of antioxidants with and without sunscreen found that:
Great for skin that has been damaged by the sun and is showing signs of premature aging because they correct some signs of aging.
A study found:
"We have previously demonstrated in vivo the beneficial effect of a topically applied formula of 5% vitamin C in the treatment of skin ageing. Another active compound, madecassoside extracted from Centella asiatica, known to induce collagen expression and/or to modulate inflammatory mediators, might thus prevent and correct some signs of ageing.
A randomized double-blind study was carried out on photoaged skin of 20 female volunteers to investigate the effects of topically applied 5% vitamin C and 0.1% madecassoside on the clinical, biophysical and structural skin properties. After 6 months of treatment, we observed a significant improvement of the clinical score for deep and superficial wrinkles, suppleness, firmness, roughness and skin hydration.
These results were corroborated by measurements of skin elasticity and semi-quantitative histological assessment of the elastic fibre network in the papillary dermis. Two-thirds of the subjects showed an improvement. The re-appearance of a normally structured elastic fibre network was observed. Our results revealed a functional and structural remodelling of chronically sun-damaged skin."
These three are the ultimate pairing to increase skin’s hydration
Dr Jart’s moisturising line is perfect to use on dry, itchy skin because it combines some excellent hydrating ngredients. It also helps damaged skin.
The combination of ceramides in these products, along with cholesterol and fatty free acids can visibly improve rough skin. It can also help with flaky and tight skin. Further, it is an ideal combination for those with allergies and itchniess.
