The Perfect Skincare Ingredient Pairings

Everyone has a soulmate out there. Someone or something that completes you and makes you better. Skincare is no different! There are ingredients that when used together make them more effective and stronger. If you want to maximize your skincare routine, take a look at these ingredients and make sure you are pairing them together. 

First, let's start with,


Retinoids and Hyaluronic Acid - a perfect pair! Vitamin A essentially tells the skin how to look younger by increasing the skin's cellular turnover. Making the skin create more collagen and restore itself. Although vitamin A is totally safe and highly effective, depending on your skin type and the percentage, it can be harsh causing redness, dryness, and flaky skin. This is why pairing with a Hyaluronic Acid works so well. The Hyaluronic Acid brings hydration and moisture to the surface of the skin. Unlike a typical acid, Hyaluronic Acid will not exfoliate the skin but instead transforms water to the surface of the skin. 


Vitamin C and Glycolic Acid - If these two were on a dating app, they would swipe right! Vitamin C protects the skin from free radical damage and fades dark spots and hyperpigmentation for an even skin tone. In order to ensure your vitamin C is the most effective, we love pairing it with a Glycolic Acid. Glycolic Acid loosens dead skin cells to allow them to detach and make way for newer, more vibrant cells to emerge on the surface. Glycolic Acid also helps fade dark spots and allows vitamin C to absorb into the skin and improve the skin's tone and texture!


Vitamin C + E - When combined, vitamin C and E are the ultimate pair to protect you from antioxidants. That is why you will often see them combined in skincare products like SkinMedica Vitamin C+E Complex and Photozyme MD Vitamin C+E Ferulic Acid Serum With DNA. Vitamin E helps stabilize Vitamin C so your product doesn't oxidize as easily. Each vitamin works to fight against free radical damage by blocking off different types of UV and preventing photodamage.


Bonus - You know what is the perfect pairing for any skin care product? SPF!
