While we may not have access to Hollywood's top dermatologists and estheticians, we can always rely on media outlets for our daily dose of luxury beauty and skincare. That’s why we've been on the lookout for industry trends—and the verdict is in!
Here's a roundup of the most popular skincare ingredients that celebrities swear by:
1. Aloe Vera Gel
While we've known that this ingredient was a skincare game changer for a while now, we never realized just how magical it really was.
Celebrities may spend thousands of dollars on high-end skincare products, but when it comes to effective remedies that actually work, they ultimately turn to nature.
This multi-purpose ingredient packs a punch, and can be used for everything from brittle hair to dry skin. It instantly hydrates parched skin, and forms a strong moisture barrier that keeps the skin supple and nourished for hours.
Filled with antioxidants, natural aloe vera gel also fights free radicals to heal and strengthen skin. In recent years, it has been a top recommendation by celebrity dermatologists and estheticians for its ability to fight Psoriasis—a growing concern among A-listers like Kim Kardashian and Cara Delevingne.
It also heals Eczema and inflammatory acne because of its incredibly effective anti-bacterial properties.
Retinol officially takes the crown as the product of the year among celebrities. Luckily, we caught a whiff of the best-kept secret in Hollywood long before it became mainstream!
While retinol has established itself as a staple in many households, there are still some people who are slowly yet surely jumping on the bandwagon.
A form of vitamin A, it has the incredible ability to promote cellular turnover, thereby fighting acne, reducing signs of aging, stimulating collagen for plump skin, and fighting pigmentation.
This powerful ingredient refines skin texture and enhances radiance for a youthful look that can't be replicated by conventional skincare treatments and ingredients.
Reverse the clock and make the most of this potent skincare powerhouse by investing in an anti-aging cream packed with retinol in its purest form.
3. Hyaluronic Acid
From Khloe Kardashian to Kristen Bell, celebrities have been touting hyaluronic acid for some time now.
This powerful humectant holds up to a thousand times its weight in water! Its ability to hydrate skin and seal in moisture is so incredible that it has everybody (including us!) perplexed.
So ditch your regular moisturizer and opt for hyaluronic acid for hydration and nourishment that lasts all day. This multi-purpose panacea reverses signs of aging, including fine lines, crow's feet, and wrinkles.
4. Matrixyl 3000
While this little firecracker remained under wraps for a long time, it's finally becoming more popular.
Matrixyl 3000 is a must-have among celebrities because of its powerful ability to stimulate collagen production and boost anti-aging. The best part? It helps combat premature aging as well.
Whether you have deep wrinkles at 50 or have recently developed fine lines beneath your eyes in your late 20s, this product will target each problem area and produce effective results.
Packed with peptides, Matrixyl 3000 also increases skin firmness for a lifted appearance that takes years off your face.
Resveratrol has been making quite a buzz in the beauty industry lately, and we've caught on!
This natural antioxidant is commonly found in grape skin and works on a cellular level to promote skin health and radiance. It also tackles signs of aging, removing dead skin cells and improving skin elasticity.
Its protective properties make it ideal for healing the damage caused by ultraviolet radiation and toxic enzymes. Resveratrol also improves the functioning of fibroblasts in the body for damage-free skin that appears rejuvenated and refreshed.
Want to up your skincare game by investing in these powerful ingredients that promise the benefits of high-end treatments at a fraction of the cost? We've got you covered with a range of products that are packed with these nutrient-laden holy grails.
