Before we start, please note that I'm not an expert in this field. All information are obtain through reading. Feel free to correct me if there are wrong information. I'll include product example for you as well! Let's go! 😘❤️
1. Ceramides

Ceramides improve "protective barrier". It also helps to prevent harmful irritants penetrate into our skin & prevents skin dehydration. Sesuai untuk semua jenis kulit. Example products: @domskincare Summertime Ceramides Liquid Moisturizer
2. Niacinamide

A powerful antioxidant and vitamin B3 derivatives. It can improve skin elasticity, minimize pores appearance, treat acne, & reduces inflammation. Suitable for all skin type! Example products: @mimpimikaHQ Hydro Brightening Skin
3. Hyaluronic acid

This one semua orang biasa dengar kan?😉 HA helps to hydrate and moisturise our skin. Long term use can slow down the effects of aging.
Example products: @mimpimikaHQ Hydro Brightening Serum
4. AHA (Alpha-hydroxy acid)

This one pun biasa dengar kan?🤪 AHA acts as chemical exfoliant by removing dead skin cells to allow new skin cells to be generated. Common AHA is Glycolic acid. Great for reducing pigmentation & give our skin smoother & plumper look.
AHAs don’t penetrate deep below the skin surface (due to the fact that they’re water soluble). Please, please moisturise & wear SPF kalau korang include acids in your skincare! 😡Example products: @alluskinhq Purifying Cleanser
5. BHA (Beta-hydroxy acid)

Selain AHA, BHA is also chemical exfoliant. Perfect for treating blemish-prone skin and blackheads. BHAs can penetrate below the skin’s surface to clear your pores of excess sebum and dirt. Best for oily skin! Example product: @mimpimikaHQ SA Cleanser
6. Vitamin C

Powerful antioxidant that stimulates collagen in our skin. It is used for skin brightening, treat hyperpigmentation, scars or dark spots! Muka jadi glowing gitu 😘
7. Vitamin E

My favorite! It can reduce wrinkles & fine lines, fade scars and dark spots. Before this I pernah ada luka and kesan jahit kat dahi, I sapu Cosmoderm Vit E tu and about one month, parut & kesan jahit tu hilang 🥳❤️
Vitamin E also makes a great moisturizer since it’s hydrating, and it has great wound healing properties as it helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier function. Product recomendation: Cosmoderm vit E & @mimpimikaHQ Super Boost Serum
8. Retinol

Retinol is loved for its acne-fighting ability, its anti-ageing properties, and its skin-brightening power. selalunya kita jumpa bahan ni dalam anti-aging product. Side note: Never mix Retinol with AHA/BHA, Benzoyl Peroxide, Vit C.
