5 Must-Haves From The Ordinary

1 comment

The Ordinary’s groundbreaking release managed to shake the core of skin care. These super-charged formulas are simple, easy to use, and pack some of the most advanced ingredients all to present an affordable range of super effective skin care products. We thought the scientific names and the wide selection might be overwhelming, so we handpicked five that we think are absolutely essential for our budget-savvy beauty lovers.

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - balances sebum production

For most of us, our skin gets really oily in summers which causes break outs. For that we recommend Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%.

Good For: Oily Skin

What it does: minimizes pores, regulates skin’s sebum production, and reduces oiliness – a major component of blackhead formation.

How to Use: Apply twice daily before applying any oils or heavy creams and don’t use any products with vitamin C along with it.

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 - for all-day hydration

Oily skin often lacks moisture – the less moisture there is, the more sebum and oil your skin creates to lubricate it which is why you need Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 for its majorly hydrating formula.

Good For: All Skin Types!

What it does: Softens, smoothens, and strengthens dehydrated skin.

How to Use: Apply after toning and before moisturizers. You can also mix a few drops of this product in your moisturizer for a plumped, dewy skin.

Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG - awakens tired eyes

We know South Asian girls are perpetually complaining about dark circles – and yes, The Ordinary’s got a solution for that too. Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG is a lightweight elixir which performs as an espresso for sleep deprived eyes.

Good For: All Skin Types

What it does: Tightens loose skin, reduces puffiness and pigmentation found in the eye contour region.

How to Use: Massage a small amount onto the eye contour area, morning and night.

100% Plant Derived Squalane - multipurpose hydrator

If you’re looking for a 2-in1 situation; The Ordinary’s got you covered with 100% Plant-Derived Squalane, a multipurpose hydrator found naturally in the skin.

Good For: Dry Skin

What it does: Prevents moisture loss and keeps skin supple

How to Use: Apply few drops after toners and water-based serums but before oil-based serums and moisturizers.

Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA - uniforms complexion

Say goodbye to dark spots and brown patches if you haven’t already. Our skin’s exposure to sun causes UV-A rays to penetrate into the lower layers of the skin aggravating melanin production. Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA inhibits melanin production and allows uniformity of skin tone.

Good For: All Skin Types

What it does: Uniforms complexion and heals pigmented or scarred skin

How to Use: Apply twice a day after water-based serums and before oil-based serums

These targeted products work if they are consistently used – be sure of that. They offer active ingredients and advanced solutions found only in high-end skincare products. However, if you’re a skincare newbie, we recommend incorporating one product at a time in your regimen and perform a little patch test before applying anything on your face – especially with the exfoliants.
