The holy grail of skincare ingredients

With so many buzzy ingredients listed on moisturizers, face washes, serums, sunblocks, and eye creams, it can be challenging to tell which ones actually make a difference. That's why Camille Morgen, Director of Skincare at LaserAway, is here to help. Camille shares her top three skincare ingredients that are essential for maintaining optimal skin fitness:

1. Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally within the skin and other organs. As you age, your skin is exposed to environmental elements like the sun, and your body loses hyaluronic acid over time. Using products that contain this ingredient helps to bind moisture to the skin, keeping it hydrated. Hyaluronic acid is typically found in serums and moisturizers, such as LaserAway Beauty's Wake Me Up Vitamin C Firming Day Serum. It contains a dermatologist-developed Hyaluronic Acid Complex that delivers time-released hydration resulting in smooth and supple skin.

2. Vitamin A

Vitamin A helps to increase cellular turnover, renewing skin. This results in less noticeable fine lines and wrinkles and more even skin texture and tone. Look for topical Vitamin A in serums in the form of Retinyl Palmitate, Retinol, or any other Vitamin A derivative, which skin can absorb. LaserAway Beauty's My Hero Retinol Repair Night Serum contains concentrated Retinol that repairs and recharges the skin, minimizing the appearance of pores.

3. Peptides

Peptides help to support healthy collagen and elastin in the skin, which reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Referred to as "nature's Botox," peptides are found in a variety of different face, body, and lip products. In particular, LaserAway Beauty's Drenched Peptide Enriched Moisturizer targets and transports skin-firming peptides where they are needed the most — deep within the epidermis.

Skincare companies are constantly touting tons of new and hard-to-understand ingredients to make their products stand out—some of which are highly effective, and some of which are mostly just marketing. But if you only remember three ingredients as you're building out your routine, make it Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin A and Peptides.
