If you’re looking for a way to brighten and smooth your skin, you might want to try combining three products from The Ordinary: Niacinamide, Peeling Solution and Alpha Arbutin. These products work together to target uneven skin tone, dullness, texture and hyperpigmentation. Here’s how they work and how to use them.
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that helps reduce the appearance of pores, blemishes and congestion. It also balances sebum production and strengthens the skin barrier. Niacinamide can be used in the morning and evening, after cleansing and before moisturizing. Apply a few drops to your face and neck and gently massage until absorbed.
Peeling Solution is a 10-minute exfoliating mask that contains 30% alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and 2% beta hydroxy acids (BHAs). AHAs are water-soluble acids that exfoliate the surface of the skin, while BHAs are oil-soluble acids that penetrate deeper into the pores and unclog them. Peeling Solution helps improve skin texture, clarity and radiance. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Peeling Solution should be used once or twice a week, preferably in the evening. Apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin and leave on for no more than 10 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Alpha Arbutin is a natural ingredient that inhibits the enzyme that produces melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. Alpha Arbutin helps fade dark spots, scars and hyperpigmentation. It also enhances skin brightness and evenness. Alpha Arbutin can be used in the morning and evening, after cleansing and before moisturizing. Apply a few drops to your face and neck and gently massage until absorbed.
By using these three products from The Ordinary, you can achieve a more luminous and smoother complexion. However, keep in mind that these products are potent and may cause irritation or sensitivity if used incorrectly or too frequently. Always patch test before using any new product and follow the instructions carefully. Also, make sure to use sunscreen every day, as these products can make your skin more sensitive to sun damage.
