No two skin-care routines are the same — or at least, they shouldn't be. While it's fun to ask friends for product recommendations or impulse-buy a mask because it's trendy, there's a lot to be said for a personalized routine that caters to what your skin actually needs. But where should you start? Our suggestion: the ingredients.
Just like your taste in celebrity crushes, your skin's need for certain ingredients evolves over time. This month you might really need the pore-clearing benefits of niacinamide, but next year your skin might desperately crave the plumping power of watermelon extract. To avoid the tedious trial-and-error process, discovering the ingredient your skin needs right now is as easy as taking this quiz.
Your Ingredient: Pineapple
Your current routine is lacking in a little zing — and this juicy fruit is the missing piece to your skin-care puzzle! Since pineapple is naturally rich in antioxidants this superfood ingredient is unstoppable when paired with vitamin C and E — a unique combination you can find in the Garnier Green Labs Pinea-C Brightening Serum Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30. You love trendy ingredients, but you’re in no place to add yet another million products to your medicine cabinet shelf. Luckily, this unique product combines the power of a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen into one bottle — so your skin looks brighter and more even in just a week.
Your Ingredient: Watermelon
It should come as no surprise that your dehydrated skin needs something to quench its thirst. The solution: watermelon. Besides drinking more water throughout the day, you might want to consider adding the Garnier Green Labs Hyalu-Melon Replumping Serum Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 into your everyday routine. This product holds the power of a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen rolled into one, plus it offers up the hydrating benefits of watermelon, which not only helps to create more collagen in the skin for a bouncy glow, but when combined with hyaluronic acid, manages to keep skin looking supple and glowing.
Your Ingredient: Hemp-Derived Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil
Oh, hemp-derived cannabis sativa seed oil, the buzziest skin-care ingredient to surface in the last five or so years — and it’s exactly what your skin-care routine needs. Luckily, this is not one of the oils out there that will clog your pores. In fact, it can help regulate your skin’s oil production. The Garnier Green Labs Canna-B Pore Perfecting Serum Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 utilizes hemp-derived cannabis sativa seed oil to do exactly this. When used in combination with niacinamide, you can expect skin to look and feel balanced and mattified. While this three-in-one product won’t technically shrink your pores, they will appear much less clogged.
Your Ingredient: Niacinamide
Niacinamide, or vitamin b3, will become your new best friend. This ride-or-die ingredient is here to, well, do it all (or at least close to it) for your skin. Not only does it help to improve moisture retention, but it can also minimize the appearance of pores and regulate oil production. Tl;dr it’s made for combination skin. The Garnier Green Labs Canna-B Pore Perfecting Serum Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 features this ingredient — alongside hemp-derived cannabis sativa seed oil — to provide the lightweight, but potent, benefits of a serum and moisturizer in one product (bonus: it also includes SPF 30).
Your Ingredient: Vitamin C
This zesty ingredient is like armor for your skin against free radicals. Its antioxidant properties can help you to address any hyperpigmentation or dull skin you want to appear brighter. The Garnier Green Labs Pinea-C Brightening Serum Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30, a three-in-one serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen, utilizes the regenerating and brightening power of vitamin C — in tandem with pineapple — to improve dull, uneven skin and aid in as little as one week.
Your Ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid
If there’s one thing you should include in your routine — no matter your skin type — it’s hyaluronic acid. This ingredient is the MVP of treating dryness, and hydrating your skin with it can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Ready to incorporate it into your usual rotation? Consider trying the Garnier Green Labs Hyalu-Melon Replumping Serum Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30, which uses this necessary ingredient along with watermelon to address fine lines and moisture loss — fast.
