The Ordinary is one of the hottest skincare companies at the moment, and if you're keen to get on the hype but a little intimidated by their confusing product names then you've come to the right place.
Ditching all forms of traditional marketing, their skincare goodies have the most scientific names possible, so it can be overwhelming to even know where to start. Luckily, we've broken down their entire product range so you can easily build a routine for you, no matter what your skincare concern is.
The First Signs Of Aging
The Ordinary has an extensive range of anti-aging products, and we say it's never too early to start with an anti-aging skincare routine!
Dehydrated skin will not only highlight the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but will also speed up the aging process, so keep your skin looking youthful with The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5. There are many benefits to using hyaluronic acid but it's mostly known for its water-retaining properties. Hyaluronic acid will keep your skin looking plump and firm, whilst encouraging collagen production.
Vitamin C is another key ingredient when it comes to collagen production so should be incorporated into your routine. The Ordinary has several vitamin-c rich products, but if you're only at the early stages of aging, we recommend you use a lightweight formula such as The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% . This will not only reduce early signs of aging and keep skin hydrated but will brighten your skin tone.
A mild exfoliator such as The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% will also minimise fine lines by stimulating cell regeneration and targeting age spots. This serum also contains additional hyaluronic acid to lock in any moisture lost during exfoliation.
Retinol is one of the best anti-aging ingredients out there, and The Ordinary have multiple retinol products to choose from! We suggest using a retinol once a day, three times a week if you want to maintain a youthful complexion.
