Ingredients That Should Be Included in Your Skincare Products
They say everything you put on your body goes into your body – but have you thought about what goes into your skincare? The most important thing about your skincare products should be the results they help you achieve, not the trendy packaging and gimmicks. And nothing contributes to that more than quality ingredients that help to get the job done. When you are dealing with skin issues as stubborn as acne, you want to ensure you have the most powerful and effective ingredients on your side. Acne Intelligence’s custom routines use a blend of quality ingredients that are proven to help deliver you clearer skin. But what are the standouts that really shine?
Acids in skincare are not as scary as they sound. In fact, they are an important acne-fighting ingredient! Mandelic Acid is categorized as an alpha hydroxy acid, as it is one of the most gentle acids, making it suitable for most skincare types. Because of its large molecular size, Mandelic Acid is more easily absorbed into the skin, causing less redness and irritation than other active ingredients. While it may be less irritating, that doesn’t mean it is any less effective! Mandelic Acid is frequently used in acne-fighting products as it helps to regulate sebum production leading to fewer breakouts over time. As a plus – Mandelic works to accelerate cell turnover, which helps to prevent wrinkles and fine lines.
If it’s not broken, don’t fix it! Benzoyl Peroxide is a staple in the acne industry, and for good reason. This ingredient is one of the most powerful acne-fighting ingredients and works to eliminate current breakouts and prevent future ones from forming. It is bactericidal, working actually to kill the bacteria and quickly!
Retinol is made from Vitamin A and can make a big difference in the way your skin looks and feels. Retinol increases the production of collagen, improving skin color, evening pigmentation, and softening the skin. Retinol is a great ingredient for those looking to maintain clear skin and prevent the signs of aging.
Lighten and brighten with the power of vitamin C! Unlike the other ingredients listed, vitamin C isn’t used to fight acne directly. Instead, this ingredient is included in a routine to reduce discoloration and brighten the appearance of the skin. This antioxidant’s main goal is to protect your skincare and keep it healthy!
Quality of ingredients is important, but it’s a frequent misconception that using certain ingredients on their own will be the solution to your acne problems. It’s the delivery mechanism of the ingredients that really matters, one which allows the active ingredient to absorb naturally giving maximum effectiveness without irritation. It all starts with a derm approved scan, which through AI, allows Acne Intelligence to customize the level of active ingredients necessary to maximize treatment and get you on your way to clear and beautiful skin. One-size-fits-all skincare will not work for everyone. There are a variety of factors our advanced AI uses when determining which products, and therefore which ingredients, to recommend to you. The Acne Intelligence technology is propriety, and so are our formulas, meaning you won’t get results like these anywhere else! For products that will truly make a difference, you need something created just for you.
Our number one priority is helping you achieve the clear skin you can feel confident in, and we can’t do that without quality ingredients that will work to treat your skin from the inside out. While there are many powerful ingredients available, everyone’s skin is different! Acne Intelligence goes a step further than “the other guys” and creates a custom skincare routine specifically for you based on your initial scan. As your skin changes – so will our recommendations!
