3 secret ingredients for achieving flawless, glowing skin

Flawless skin – it’s the holy grail for beauty seekers everywhere. Discover the secret ingredients that will make your skin glow.

Many of us have spent years trying to perfect our morning and evening skincare routine in the quest for flawless, glowing skin.

Regardless of whether your skin is oily, normal or dry, ensuring it is well-hydrated is the key to achieving your skin goals. But how do you know you’re quenching its thirst?

The secret is targeting the right products that harness the superstar ingredients needed for the dream glow-up.

Marine collagen

Marine collagen is at the forefront of new-age beauty thanks to its ability to help improve skin hydration.

According to a recent study, marine collagen has been shown to have anti-ageing benefits by improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles1.

During our day-to-day lives, we are exposed to pollution, smoke, alcohol and chemicals, which affect the health and appearance2 of our skin. As an antioxidant, collagen helps to neutralise and reduce free radicals.

It has also been found to be effective in supporting in the healing of wounds.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is found in countless skincare products on the market. But why is it so important?

Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, which is mostly found in our skin, eyes and joints3 – but as we get older, our body’s levels start to decline4.

Using products containing hyaluronic acid helps us to replenish our natural supply, which in turn boosts our skin’s ability to retain moisture and, ultimately, hydrate our skin.

In addition to being an amazing moisturiser5, it minimises the signs of ageing by plumping our skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C

A favourite ingredient for many, vitamin C has many benefits.

Research has found vitamin C helps to prevent skin from ageing and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots6.

Vitamin C may also help to improve overall skin appearance and texture by supporting collagen formation to tighten skin and prevent sagging, while a review study by researchers at the University of Otago found it can assist with wound healing and skin repair7.
