The Best Ingredients For Your Skin Type

When it comes to skincare, it's important to address your specific concerns in order to see the best results. But how do you know which concerns are most important for your skin type? In this blog post, we'll walk you through how to identify your biggest skincare concerns based on your skin type, and suggest ingredients that can help address them.

Unsure of what skin type you are?Ā Askthescientists.com has a skincare quiz that can help you find your answer!

If you have oily or combination skin:
You may be most concerned with acne and breakouts. Salicylic acid is a great ingredient to look for in products designed to target this concern, as it helps to unclog pores and reduce the appearance of blemishes. You can shop our Salicylic range here.

If you have dry or sensitive skin:
Your biggest concern may be dryness and lack of hydration. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid can help to plump up the skin and increase hydration levels. You can shop our Hyaluronic Acid range here.

If you have normal or mature skin:
You may be looking to address hyperpigmentation and scarring, as well as signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Kojic acid and Vitamin C are both powerful ingredients that can help to lighten dark spots and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. Shop our best selling Kojic Acid soap here & our Vitamin C range here.

Our retinol range is great for aging and fine lines, it can help to boost collagen production, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin.

It's important to note that every skin is different, and you may experience more than one of these concerns at once. In those cases, look for skincare products that contain a combination of ingredients to address multiple concerns at once.

It's also essential to remember that good skincare regimen not only needs good ingredients but also a healthy routine, including regular sunscreen use, proper cleansing and not over exfoliating. Read this blog for our guide to the ultimateĀ skincare routine.
