Today, we’re exploring the ultimate skincare to use together for the best results!
Even if they’re not in the same product, combining these hero ingredients together in the same routine will help to supercharge your skincare:
NIACINAMIDE + SALICYLIC ACID
What they do: When used together, niacinamide and salicylic acid work to reduce pore size and sebum production. This combination is great for oily, combination and acne-prone skin.
Where to find them: APLB Sensitive Micro Cleansing Foam
The soft, dense micro bubbles in this foaming cleanser help to gently remove makeup and residues for a soothing yet thorough cleanse.The combination of niacinamide and salicylic acid is perfect for oily and combination skin, as well as those with large pores.
GREEN TEA + CAFFEINE
What they do: Increase skin’s ability to protect itself against UVB-induced cancer.
Where to find them: Innisfree Eco Science Eye Cream
This beauty-award winning eye cream is enriched with natural anti-aging active ingredients from marine plants and botanical extracts. Caffeine and green tea keep skin looking energised and bright, while the formula skips out on nasties like parabens, synthetic colorants, artificial fragrances, mineral oil and imidazolidinyl urea.
CENTELLA ASIATICA + VITAMIN C + GLYCOLIC ACID
What they do: Increase skin’s collagen production by 4 times.
Start your routine with this toner and exfoliant, which helps balance the PH levels of your skin with glycolic acid and more.
Follow up with Purito’s cruelty-free Vitamin C Serum, which contains 15% pure L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). This helps create a complexion free from pigmentation, dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Finish off with Dr Jart’s Cicapair Cream, which is jam-packed full of Cica (AKA Centella Asiatica).
Talk about a skin boosting combination!
RETINOL + NIACINAMIDE
What they do: Retinol and niacinamide used together increases the tolerability of retinol.
Missha’s iconic Time Revolution Ampoule is made on a base of 10 types of Lactobacillus, each with different effects to enhance skin’s moisture levels and elasticity. However the real jewel in the crown is the combination of retinol with niacinamide. This works to brighten skin, reduce the signs of aging and acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Similarly, APLB’s luxurious anti-aging formula includes retinol + niacinamide. It also contains peptides, collagen, squalane, sodium hyaluronate, as well as pigmentation-busting licorice and sea buckthorn.
CERAMIDES + CHOLESTEROL + FREE FATTY ACIDS
What they do: These three are the ultimate pairing to Increase skin’s hydration
Dr Jart+’s cult favourite moisturising line increases skin’s ability to restore itself and relieves itchiness and extreme dryness while also repairing damaged skin.
The combination of ceramides (Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Ceramide AS, Ceramide NS, Ceramide EOP) with cholestrol and free fatty acids (Glyceryl Stearate SE and Stearic Acid) is a winner. It visibly improves rough skin, flakiness, tightness for dryness and soothes and moisturises chronic dry skin, allergies and itchiness.
