Beauty Tuesday: Facing the Facts
We’re totally into the habit of checking the nutrition labels on all of our groceries, but reading the labels on beauty products, too?!
Yup, the ingredients that go on that pretty little moneymaker of yours are just as important as the ones you put into it. Even the most problematic skin can benefit from the right cleanser components. Just ask Hollywood’s fave facialist and beauty mogul Lauren Young London, who swears by checking the labels.
She said, “I’ve spent the last 10 years working to find solutions to every major skin problem, and I’m amazed that more people don’t realize that with the right ingredients in the right products anyone can have beautiful skin.” Lucky for us, the woman responsible for keeping those A-listers’ skin looking A-mazing has compiled a must-have list of exactly what to look for in a skin care regimen that will take your skin from fine to flawless!
Hyaluronic acid: Think of your skin as a super sponge as it soaks up the hyaluronic acid to give skin an invisible veil of moisture. It increases the skin’s ability to retain moisture so overtime skin gets super soft.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids: AHAs like glycolic and lactic acid work by stimulating cell turnover so you can diminish your fine lines, shrink pores, fade unwanted dark spots, and refine skin’s texture.
Vitamin C: We’re not talking about orange juice; we’re talking L-Ascorbic Acid, the kind that helps to brighten and illuminate the complexion. It delivers superior protection against free radical attack (which speeds up aging at a cellular level) so it protects against future sun damage and skin aging when you wear it on a daily basis.
Peptides: They do the best job of stimulating production of collagen and elastin so you stay looking younger longer. Who doesn’t want that?!
Salicylic Acid: This pimple fighter helps exfoliate, unclog pores, and prevent future breakouts. With regular use, it will help keep your pores clean and help you to maintain a blemish-free complexion.
