Giveaway: Which Skin Care Ingredient Can’t You Live Without?

NIcki with Vitamin C

How Which Skin Care Ingredient Can’t You Live Without? Share in Comments, and you could win a $10 Amazon gift card! Winner announced Wednesday, July 16, 2014.

Everyone always thinks I can’t live without retinol — it was our first product, after all — but what I actually can’t live without is vitamin C! My rules are that it has to be in concentrations of at least 15%, combined with vitamin E, and stabilized.


When I was 19 years old, I had three sunspots under my right eye. I was religious about skin care even then — we’re talking hats, sunscreen, creams, you name it — so I was really surprised. So I bought Skinceuticals CE Ferulic, and after six months of diligent use, I was sunspot-free. Now I am all grown up and formulate my own version — FutureDerm Vitamin CE Caffeic 16+2 —  and I am happy to say I’ve been sunspot-free and have had a “glow” ever since I first discovered vitamin C!

    Vitamin A derivatives! Isotretinoin works miracles for cystic acne, but it’s not a long-term maintenance treatment. I’m a big advocate of Rx retinoids, but for those who can’t get a Rx, a well-formulated OTC retinol can produce a noticeable result.

    Sunscreen! I live in AZ, and the search for the “perfect” sunscreen is on-going. It has to work, obv, but also can’t be shiny. It can’t leave my face a weird color. It also can’t irritate my skin, which can be touchy, since I wear sunscreen every single day.

    Glycolic acid without a doubt. I started using it 3 years ago now and it cleared yo my skin significantly. It started to fade my hyperpigmentation adnn completely got rid of those small bumbps I would get on my cheeks. Currenly using Glytone Face Lotion Step 3. But yes, glycolic acid!

    Sunscreen ingredient(s)! Whether it’s zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone or the like, this stuff has definitely prevented my skin from getting lots of damage in good ole’ bakin’ Texas. Before I started with sunscreen I got some freckles on my face, but since I’ve started wearing sunscreen regularly (for the last couple of years) they’ve been fading!

    I’ve been using Glytone Antioxidant Prevent Anti-Aging Facial Serum consistently for the last two years. I think it’s made a huge difference in the quality of my skin.
