Does your skin love retinol? Hyaluronic acid? Ceramides? I’m curious to know what ingredients are your tried-and-true skincare superheroes.
If you want, you can also share your skin type and what your main concerns are, if you’re feeling extra chatty in the comments.
I have combination skin. My skin is dry on my cheeks and around my mouth, and oily in my T-zone. I have two main concerns: hormonal acne (UGH) and what I like to call my “experience lines.”
My tried-and-true ingredients are benzoyl peroxide, retinol, vitamin C (especially when it’s combined with ferulic acid, like in the Skinceuticals CE Ferulic serum). My skin also seems to respond well to beta hydroxy acid.
For the last few months I’ve been dipping my figurative toes into tranexamic acid for hyperpigmentation on my cheeks, but I don’t know if it’s actually doing anything for me yet, so the jury’s still out.
What about you? What are your tried-and-true skincare ingredients?
