4 powerful skincare ingredients for the perfect glow

Winter seems like the ideal time of year due to the fresh air, warmth of comfortable sweaters and the approaching holiday season with the start of the New Year.

The skin on the face and body can be exposed to harsher weather conditions, even though winter seems like the best time of the year as the season results in reduced humidity and dryness in the air. Understanding how best to deal with them is crucial.

Deconstruct founder Malini Adapureddy is here to give you a breakdown of the components to use in your skincare regimen to keep your skin looking and feeling good throughout the cold winter.

Lock in moisture with Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid has become an essential ingredient in serums, moisturizers and even body washes for people who want their skin to appear significantly softer and nourished. In order to allow people to experience the maximum effectiveness of this ingredient, it has been included in a variety of skin care products. The hydration that hyaluronic acid provides to the skin is one of its key qualities. When applied externally, it binds to water molecules in the skin, improving hydration, retaining moisture and preventing the skin from drying out.

Pro Tip: Use hyaluronic acid right after your shower to lock in the most moisture in winter.

Get that citrus boost with vitamin C

Adding a regular, healthy dose of vitamin C is important to maintaining winter sparkle, especially given the numerous benefits that this activity brings. First of all, maintaining a good body temperature through improved blood circulation is important during the colder months and ensures that the cold winter doesn’t take its toll on your skin. Vitamin C is also incredibly beneficial for the care of many skin conditions such as dull, dry and tired skin. It is also known to support the production of collagen, which helps maintain skin elasticity and makes your skin firmer.

Pro Tip: Use a product that contains both vitamin C and ferulic acid, such as B. Deconstruct’s Vitamin C Serum – 10% Vitamin C + 0.5% Ferulic Acid to ensure ingredients are at their highest potency.

Treat yourself to some ceramides

Ceramides play a role in skin’s barrier function, which serves as our body’s first line of defense against external pollution and toxins, making them an excellent choice for those looking to lock in moisture and prevent skin from drying out during the cold winter months. Ceramides work best when used twice a day and can be used in many skin care products like serums, moisturizers, body washes and even scrubs.

Pro Tip: Use a ceramide-based moisturizer immediately after using a face serum to lock in moisture and deliver intense hydration while strengthening the skin barrier.

Turn your winter skin around with AHA

While not a moisturizing ingredient, AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) has a different role to play in a winter skincare routine. Best known for its exfoliating properties, AHA is a chemical peel that scrubs away dead skin cells from the body to reveal visibly more radiant and nourished skin underneath. The process of removing dead skin cells from the body also helps the body produce more evenly pigmented skin cells, preventing uneven skin tone issues. However, care must be taken not to overuse AHA in the skincare routine to prevent skin from peeling or causing any kind of damage.

Pro Tip: Use a lactic or glycolic acid exfoliating serum and body cream once/twice a week if you are new to chemical peeling.

While the winter months are truly a magical time of year, no one wants to go through them unprepared with skin issues and worries. Using a combination of these three ingredients is a great way to get through these months with beautifully glowing skin and avoid the dryness and damage that comes with lower temperatures.
