Four must-use ingredients if you’re serious about your skincare

Autumn is a time to rethink your skincare. And it’s an even better time to think about what skincare ingredients might help reverse some of the repercussions of all that summer fun. We found out which are Exuviance’s top suggestions …

• Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that works hard to fight free radicals that can significantly damage our skin. The new Exuviance Vitamin C Tone Correcting Serum is powered by three antioxidants that assist in correcting, protecting and revealing brighter and firmer-looking skin and a more even tone and texture. R847.

• Hyaluronic acid is a key skincare ingredient which not only helps retain moisture but also helps plump the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You can find HA in Exuviance’s Total Correct Eye, R1596, and Total Correct Hydrate, R1475.

• Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, benefits those suffering from acne and eczema as well as treats hyperpigmentation. It calms and soothes, helps with moisturising and strengthening the skin barrier and also helps with brightening and discolouration, making it an excellent option for those with dark circles. Try Exuviance Brightening Serum which brightens, exfoliates and reduces the appearance of dark spots brought on by ageing and overexposure to the elements. R797.

• Retinol … the purest form of vitamin A, this is a cell-communicating ingredient and antioxidant that stimulates collagen, activates cellular metabolism to encourage faster cell turnover, fades brown spots and discolouration, and improves skin firmness. It is one of the most studied and proven ingredients on the market and truly can create permanent change for the look of the skin. Simply put, it’s an anti-ageing powerhouse! Exuviance Retinol Serum reverses signs of ageing, revealing a smoother skin texture and tone and a more youthful complexion. R1377.
