5 Ingredients to Look for in Skincare for Smooth, Glowing Skin

Soft, glowing skin is probably what every woman tries to achieve when doing their skincare routines. But stress, diet, the weather, and lifestyle habits can prevent you from having the complexion of your dreams. Fortunately, we have nature on our side; it’s one of our biggest allies in accomplishing this goal. Plants, fruits, and botanicals are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients that deliver powerful, anti-aging, and radiance-boosting benefits to the skin.

Here are some to look for when choosing products for your regimen:

1. Turmeric

This powerhouse ingredient is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce acne and photoaging and help fight off free radicals that contribute to skin aging. The powerful spice is also known to help revive skin and bring out its natural glow.

2. Avocado

It’s good on toast, and it’s also great for your skin. This fleshy fruit contains fatty acids and vitamins A, D, and E that help moisturize your skin and help increase collagen production. The effect? A smooth, plump, and hydrated complexion.

3. Teasel

Native to Eurasia and North Africa, this flowering plant has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Teasel extract helps fight free radicals and increases cell energy to boost skin vitality and radiance.

4. Kiwi

This fuzzy fruit with the tasty green center is loaded with health benefits that rival those of many other fruits. In skincare, it’s loaded with vitamin C to help your skin look brighter, and antioxidants that help fight off free radicals to give you a youthful glow.

5. Marsh Samphire

Historically, this thick, grass-like plant has been used as a food source. Lately, however, more research has been done on its topical value. Marsh samphire can help prevent water loss from the various layers of the skin, which means the skin is able to stay hydrated and supple for longer.

These five botanical ingredients, plus 16 other anti-aging plant extracts, are used in the Clarins Double Serum. The award-winning skincare product harnesses the power of nature to help skin cells perform five basic functions—hydration, nutrition, oxygenation, protection, and regeneration—to give you the soft, glowing skin that you’ve been wishing for.
