Favorite skincare Ingredients?

What are some skin care ingredients that you just love? 

Re: Favorite skincare Ingredients?

@mamadanielle  Answers will differ based on each person’s skin type/behavior, sensitivities/allergies, and skincare goals. I have mostly dry combo skin that’s quite reactive/inflammation-prone and hates certain ingredients. My face loves:  


  • Humectants and hydrators (hyaluronic acid, PCA, polyglutamic acid, carrageenan, trehalose) 
  • Peptides 
  • Azelaic acid 
  • Ceramides
  • Skin soothers (licorice root, heartleaf, centella asiatica, allantoin) 
  • Vitamin A (currently retinaldehyde)
  • Evening primrose oil
  • Niacinamide 
  • Petrolatum 

Honorable mention: salicylic acid, lactic & glycolic acids, kojic acid, and alpha arbutin.

My dry and sensitive skin loves hylauronic acid, niacinamide, ceramides, vitamin C, cintella asiatica, retinol and salicylic acid, @mamadanielle. What are yours?
