hyluranoic acid

a powerful moisture-binding ingredient that keeps the skin hydrated and plump. it’s naturally produced in the human body and the reason why babies have such soft skin- they’re born with such high levels of it! however as we age, our skin loses moisture, so it’s crucial you have this in your rotation to combat dehydration.

snail slime

our favorite korean beauty ingredient. let’s be honest, they never get it wrong. snail secretion is packed with nutrients such as hyaluronic acid (explained above) and antioxidants that fight free radical damaging and signs of aging.

retinol

AKA vitamin A, has been shown to reverse signs of aging and improve the appearance of skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. it’s also a powerful exfoliant, helping with cell turnover. it quite literally can transform your skin and is great for treating: acne, hyper pigmentation, and wrinkles. use 2x/wk in your 20s, 3x/wk in 30s, 4x/wk in 40s, and so on.

vitamin C

this is one of the most powerful antioxidants and greatest weapon when it comes to anti-aging and maintaining clear skin. it not only fights free radical damage, but also comes to your skin’s rescue when too much oil is produced and clogged pores begin to develop. it’s an overall, must-have ingredient in your regime.
