5 Powerful Skincare Ingredients to Know

1. Retinol

Retinol is also known as vitamin A. It’s a skincare superstar because it helps boost the appearance of collagen-deprived skin and helps exfoliate dead skin cells. Both of these benefits help to prevent visible signs of aging while also addressing the noticeable manifestations of aging that already exist. Regular use of retinol can help soften the appearance of wrinkles. Another benefit of retinol is its helpfulness in battling the appearance of blemishes thanks to its ability to help keep pores clean. This allows cells to slough off and shed more readily instead of piling up inside hair follicles and clogging pores. Find retinol in Image Skincare products, including: AGELESS total overnight retinol masque, and AGELESS total repair crème.

2. Niacinamide

This ingredient has been appearing in more and more skincare products lately, due in part to its ability to hydrate, protect the lipid barrier, and help minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Find niacinamide in Image Skincare’s ILUMA intense facial illuminator.

3. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is another superstar skincare ingredient. It provides hydration, helping to lock in moisture thanks to its remarkable ability to retain 1,000 times its weight in water. This allows it to help plump up fine lines and wrinkles, making them less perceptible. Find it in many Image Skincare products, including: AGELESS total pure hyaluronic 6 filler, VITAL C hydrating repair crème, VITAL C hydrating water burst, I MASK hydrating hydrogel sheet mask, VITAL C hydrating eye recover gel, I MASK firming transformation mask, ORMEDIC balancing antioxidant serum, and ORMEDIC balancing biopeptide crème.

4. Vitamin C

Add vitamin C to your list of must-have ingredients. This essential substance has emerged as a giant among skincare ingredients because it packs quite a punch against signs of aging and hyperpigmentation by helping to improve the appearance of collagen-deprived skin and brighten and even out the overall look of one’s complexion. Vitamin C should be in everyone’s skincare regimen. Find it in Image Skincare products, including: VITAL C Collection, CLEAR CELL restoring serum, AGELESS total eye lift crème, ILUMA intense brightening crème, ILUMA intense brightening serum, I MASK purifying probiotic mask, and ILUMA intense facial illuminator.

5. Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that rushes in to clarify and clean out pores. It is a common ingredient in over-the-counter acne treatments as it helps increase cell turnover to help unclog pores. Salicylic acid can also help with signs of aging because of its ability to aid in cell turnover. Find it in Image Skincare’s CLEAR CELL clarifying gel cleanser, CLEAR CELL clarifying pads, CLEAR CELL clarifying tonic, and CLEAR CELL clarifying masque.
