Here are some of the best ingredients you can treat your skin to. If you’re not already using them, you’ll want to pick these up ASAP!
If you're looking for new ingredients to use on your skin, a great place to start is with the basics. And by basics, we mean ingredients people have effectively used as skincare treatments for centuries.
You don't need modern chemicals and harsh elements to stay trendy. Those will only destroy your skin barrier and leave you with a damaged complexion. Instead, it would be best to repair, hydrate, and nourish your delicate skin.
The Colorful History Of Turmeric
One skincare ingredient that has been around for years is turmeric. If you're unfamiliar with this culinary spice, it can be used for anything from skincare to lattes.
The turmeric spice has been used in India for at least 6,000 years as a cooking spice, dye, and herbal medicine. That's also where turmeric skincare originated from. Those that used turmeric benefited from its outstanding anti-inflammatory properties and skin-smoothing abilities.
More Than Just A Spice
By the year 800, turmeric had been traded all across Asia and even in some parts of Africa. This multi-purpose ingredient grew in popularity as people used it around the world as a delicious spice in many dishes (you can even try it in your morning scrambled eggs!).
Even in the 13th century, Marco Polo was so impressed by this yellow spice that he mistakenly called it a vegetable and compared it to saffron. Now, many call it "Indian saffron."
Benefits Of Using Turmeric In Your Skincare Routine
Turmeric is even able to treat acne and help reduce scarring. It can also brighten under-eye circles, diminish the signs of aging, and support excellent skin health with its unique antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.
Specifically, turmeric skincare products are known to smooth skin irregularities and even skin tone. Turmeric can deliver a glowing complexion while addressing even your skin's most stubborn conditions.
Using Turmeric To Fight Your Skin's Age
A skin concern that many of us have is the unwanted presence of fine lines and wrinkles. Over the years, our skin starts to show the effects of time. And that's okay!
Turmeric is well-known for its natural anti-aging benefits and ability to improve skin texture. With a potent turmeric serum, it'll be easy to add some wrinkle-fighting power to your skincare routine.
Giving Your Skin What It Needs

#2. Hyaluronic Acid
When it comes to the skincare ingredients you should be using in your beauty routine, a few big names always pop out. And one of the most well-known skincare ingredients out there is hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is well-known for its hydrating and moisturizing properties. It's a humectant that can bind more than 1,000 times its weight in water. Essentially, it can attract water to your skin, which is why it's so prevalent in many skincare products.
A Natural Hydrator
This hydrator is also found naturally in your body. It's critical for maintaining your skin's health and ensuring your skin stays hydrated. However, as we age, our body's natural levels of hyaluronic acid can drop.
That's why it's common for our skin to develop fine lines and wrinkles or dry patches as the years go on.
The Best Ingredient For All Skin Types
However, you don't need to be fighting the effects of aging to add hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine. Dry skin can lead to many skin conditions, and incorporating some of this potent hydrating agent into your skincare regimen can save your complexion.
#3. Avocado Oil
The next time you're going to make some avocado toast for breakfast, keep in mind that this green food is actually a potent skincare ingredient. It's good for meals and it’s good for your face as well!
Avocados are high in fiber, low in sugar, and chock full of vitamins and minerals. Avocado oil, which is derived from avocados, is a useful skincare ingredient that you should try using to give your complexion a powerful moisturizing treatment.
A Mega-Moisturizer For Your Dry Skin
Avocado oil is known to be a mega-moisturizer, meaning it can effectively soothe and hydrate even dehydrated skin. Because avocados are full of vitamin E, which is excellent for moisturizing skin, avocado oil can leave skin feeling more hydrated than ever.
But the benefits of avocado oil don't end there. It also decreases the pathways that may break down your skin's collagen (though it may not necessarily boost collagen production), minimizes free radical damage, and treats dry or flaky skin.
Delivering Your Skin The Moisture It's Been Craving
Especially in the winter months, it's common for our skin to be a bit more dry than usual. And if you already suffer from flaky or dry skin, wintertime can feel like a death sentence for your skin.
Finding ways to keep your skin moisturized year-round is critical, and what's more hydrating than a creamy and soothing face mask?
An Avocado Face Mask You Need Year-Round
Whether you have dry skin or want to give your face a much-need boost in hydration, an avocado oil face mask could be just what you need. And JUARA's Java Plum Avocado Nourishing Mask is full of all the best ingredients you can use on your skin.
It contains avocado oil, java plum, banana, and mango - ingredients that effectively hydrate and soothe even stressed or irritated skin. Our product’s leave-on formula gives ample time for the mask's vitamins, lipids, essential fatty acids, and minerals to penetrate your skin barrier and repair any damage at the source.
Incorporate Avocado Oil Into Your Daily Moisturizer
If your skin is a little dry, it could be because your daily moisturizer isn't compatible with your skin. Everyone has a unique complexion, and you must find the right products to treat it.
Using a daily moisturizer full of natural or organic ingredients is the best way to give your skin the support and affection it needs. JUARA's Sweet Black Tea and Rice Moisturizer is made with potent moisturizers like avocado oil and hyaluronic acid and natural elements like rice bran oil and fermented sweet black tea.
This unique mix of ingredients allows this moisturizer to soothe stressed skin and is safe enough to use daily. Plus, your skin will be left feeling exceptionally soft and moisturized.
#4. Glycolic Acid
You've probably heard the term "glycolic acid" a few times. This skincare ingredient is trendy in the beauty world for many reasons. The benefits this ingredient can offer your skin are almost endless.
A Powerful Chemical Exfoliant You Need
Derived from sugar cane, glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant that can do more than exfoliate your skin. Its powerful formula can also boost collagen production and improve skin moisture.
Falling under the classification of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), glycolic acid works by dissolving the outermost layer of your skin to reveal the smooth, plump, and younger skin underneath. This exfoliant is a great skincare ingredient for treating acne, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles.
There's no time like the present to curate the perfect skincare routine. And with these ingredients in hand, your skin will soon look its best!
