The top 3 natural ingredients for acne, wrinkles, and dehydrated skin

Published 05th Jul 2024 by PB Admin

Natural skincare can provide all types of skin with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, promoting skin health while minimising the risk of skin irritation.

Synthetic ingredients can cause adverse reactions in sensitive-skin clients, so understanding the gentle and effective natural alternatives available, is key to servicing them.

AHA and BHA exfoliants

Chemical exfoliants AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) and BHAs (beta-hydroxy acids) help
remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, which improves the skin texture, unclogs pores and brightens skin complexion.

What is the difference between AHAs and BHAs?

AHAs such as glycolic or lactic acids reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin youthful and radiant. 

They break down the outer layer of skin and peel it away to allow new skin to grow, so it is important to use AHA products cautiously.

BHAs such as salicylic acid penetrate deep into the pores leaving the skin perfectly clean. 

BHAs also help with correcting dark spots, reducing skin oil production, and treating blackheads and whiteheads. 

If you have a client with acne-prone and oily skin, a BHA toner will refresh and soothe the skin as a last step of skin cleansing. 

This prepares the skin for absorbing all the nourishing ingredients from other cosmetic products from the beauty routine.

What is bakuchiol?

Bakuchiol, sometimes also called “nature’s retinol”, is a natural antioxidant that helps reduce signs of ageing, stimulates cell renewal and increases skin elasticity. 

Unlike retinol, bakuchiol is gentler on the skin and it can be used also in both morning and evening anti-ageing skincare routines.

If your client wishes to target signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and loss of
elasticity in their beauty regime, recommend bakuchiol serums, masks and moisturisers, as part of their home care. 

It is also great to pair bakuchiol with highly hydrating hyaluronic acid for the best results. 

How do ceramides work?

These barrier-repair agents naturally present in the skin help prevent dehydration. 

Their content decreases with age and when this happens, our skin tends to lose moisture and elasticity, shows signs of ageing and the potential irritants and allergens easily enter the skin as the skin barrier no longer works effectively. 

Adding ceramides into our cosmetic routine brings only benefits, so if your customer suffers from dull and dry skin with signs of premature ageing, recommend using ceramide moisturisers and serums daily.
