When looking for the best skincare products for your dazzling skin, consider what ingredients they contain and why these make every option more or less expensive. We’ve made a little guide for you to get to know five of the most costly beauty ingredients and their benefits. It’s time for some pampering (you’re worth it)!
These are the five most expensive beauty ingredients:
1. Hyaluronic Acid : £25/100ml
Hyaluronic acid has exploded in popularity in recent years, especially in the beauty industry; it’s been presented as a miraculous anti-aging remedy. Why is it so popular and expensive?
Hyaluronic acid is one of the few acids with many benefits for our skin. Its structure has little to do with other famous acids. It has a great affinity for water, a property known as hydrophilicity, and can absorb and retain it. This is precisely why we love it. It provides volume and turgidity to our skin, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.
2. Seed oils £35/100ml
Seed oils offer significant benefits to our skin and have won an important place in cosmetics manufacture. These have several valuable constituents, such as vitamins, flavonoids, antimicrobial agents, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory factors, which make them perfect for fighting many skin woes, including acne, pimples, dark spots, scars, eczema, and premature aging.
3. Caviar £125/100ml
Caviar is not only delicious. Researchers have found that fish egg extract can do amazing things for your skin. Caviar has antioxidant properties that protect and nourish the skin, and it also contains omega-3 and six fatty acids, which moisturize and improve skin texture. It primarily hydrates the skin and makes it soft and perfect.
4. Ceramides £250/100ml
Ceramides are widely used in cosmetics as essential in moisturizing creams, masks, and all kinds of regenerative skin products. These are intercellular lipids that can be found in our skin and have the function of uniting cells to prevent tissue dryness and are usually compared to the “cement” of our skin.
5. Diamonds £2496/100g
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! And your skin's best friend too. Stop using diamonds on your fingers, ears, and neck, and start adding them to your beauty routine. You can now find diamond serums, masks, BB creams, nail polish, and shampoos on the market. But do they work? It’s safe to say that diamond powder does offer some fantastic benefits. The most important one is light exfoliation without damaging the skin.
