What two skin care products should everyone own and use?

If you’re sick of buying creams and potions that just don’t seem to work, or don’t have time to do multiple skin care steps each day, then I have the answer for you.

Here are the two must-haves in everyone’s skin care arsenal!

Vitamin C – This powerful antioxidant usually comes in a serum to use every morning. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which are a main cause of aging. That’s why Vitamin C serums are considered by most skin care experts as a “must.” The keys with Vitamin C are to make sure it hasn’t oxidized (toss it out if it’s turned brown) and to combine it with Vitamin E. Studies show that when Vitamins C and E are combined, they can work synergistically for an even bigger anti-aging punch.

Most major skin care lines contain a Vitamin C serum. For a budget option, check out THIS ONE from Vichy. If you’d like to splurge, my YOUN Beauty CE Antioxidant Serum is perfect for every day use and includes Vitamin E, too!

Retinoids – These are considered by most dermatologists and plastic surgeons to be the best when it comes to anti-aging! Retinoids come in prescription-strength and non-prescription-strength forms. Retinol is the over-the-counter version and the easiest to come by. It exfoliates the skin, thickens the deeper skin layer, and works well to diminish fine lines and wrinkles!

Like Vitamin C, most major skin care lines contain a retinol, including THIS BUDGET OPTION from Cerave. For a splurge, the YOUN Beauty Retinol Moisturizer can be the cornerstone of any anti-aging skin care routine.

If you add these two types of products with a good cleanser and sunscreen, then you are doing better with your skin than almost everyone else!
