Trying out some new skincare from @deciem
’s The Ordinary. At less than SGD15 each, with a whole range of active ingredients, gotta say Im impressed by the price and concept! Currently trying out their Hyaluronic Acid 2% and Lactic Acid 10%!
// Hyaluronic Acid is common in many skincare products targeting hydration, skin repair and anti-aging as it helps to eliminate dry patches, reduce appearance of fine lines (or wrinkles), and even wound healing for acne scars!
Lactic Acid on the other hand is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), whose main purpose is to reduce acne breakouts and provide anti-aging effects. Gentler than Glycolic Acid (another AHA), lactic acid is used as a peel to exfoliate and “reset your skin”. Another good AHA formula is by @kiehls
Clearly Corrective Brightening and Smoothing Moisture Treatment. Remember to put your sunscreen on the next day because AHA does increase skin sensitivity to sunrays for a day or two!! ☀️☀️☀️
These acids sound harsh, but trust me they arent, and more importantly, they work!
