5 Must-Have Winter Skincare Ingredients

Healthy, glowing skin requires commitment and a watertight routine that involves products made with effective ingredients. This winter, make sure your products contain these highly recommended ingredients:

  1. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally-occurring acid that attracts hydration. That means it improves the firmness and plumpness of your skin. It has the ability to retain moisture, and rejuvenate the skin’s outer layer.

This ingredient can be found in the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask, Turmeric Clay Mask as well as the Activated Charcoal Peel-off Mask.

2. Humecant

Humectants are moisture-attracting soldiers – they work like a magnet by drawing moisture and hydration from the atmosphere, and locking it into the skin. A widely-used humectant is glycerin, which can be found in the Spa-Grade Pore-Contracting Gel Mask, as well as avocado oil, which is the active ingredient in the popular Avocado Overnight Serum.

3. Vitamins A, C, D, E

These vitamins are essential for overall health and functioning of the skin. The vitamin A helps to build collagen and minimises fine lines; vitamin C – jam-packed in the Lemon Overnight Serum – brightens overall complexion; while the vitamin D helps repair skin cells, and vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, which is vital for healing damaged skin.

4. Collagen

According to Healthline.com, collagen is the most abundant protein in the skin. It’s the part that makes the skin elastic and plump, which is a sign of healthy skin. There are many Corium products that boast this ingredient. Our favorites are Pure Luxe Argan Oil as well as the Pure Luxe Baobab Oil.

5. SPF

Now, this is an all-year must-have! Never, ever leave step outside without putting on some SPF on your skin. Why? The sun is the leading cause for hyper pigmentation and early signs of ageing. An SPF creates a protective layer so that harsh sun rays don’t damage the skin at a cellular level.
