POV: Your Skincare Ingredients Have A Better Dating Profile Than You

POV: Your Skincare Ingredients Have A Better Dating Profile Than You

POV: It’s a world where you’re swiping right on skincare ingredients instead of humans. And I’m pretty sure I like it better. Think about it like this. You know what you’re getting into from the get-go. You know that they won’t lead you on. Or ghost you. Or bombard with you god-awful pick-up lines. You know what their intentions are, and you know that they value effort. And that they’ll invest just as much time and effort into your relationship as you. They strive to make you feel beautiful, and, well, they won’t send you to therapy. They’re pretty good at listening to your needs anyway.

You might not meet them organically, but the chemistry is just fabulous. Even science concurs! Let’s live in this world for a few minutes, and speed-date our favourite ingredients, shall we?

Speed-Dating Popular Skincare Ingredients

Vitamin C

Designation: The Brightest Bulb
Bio: I’m the life of every party—and rightfully so. I brighten up every room I walk into (nope, modesty isn’t a virtue of mine) and I love consistency and effort. That’s how things turn into something meaningful, no? Before you swipe right on me, know that I’m not into the ‘no-strings-attached’ scene.
Location: You’ll find me…

Hyaluronic Acid

Designation: Your High-End Highlighter
Bio: I’m Bella Hadid-approved. And Hailey Bieber-approved. Do you need me to go on? This is your reminder to hydrate yourselves—so, slurp me right up, and I promise our conversations will never turn dry.
Location: You’ll find me…

Retinol

Designation: Your Time Machine
Bio: I don’t like boasting, but I reti-know-it-all. My intentions are clear from the get-go. A bizarre interest of mine includes reversing the time on people’s clocks. And now that we’re confessing…let’s just say that I might hurt you at the start, but remember that it’s not you. It’s me. I’m a tad complicated. Oh, also, are you a night-owl like me?

Niacinamide

Designation: The Social Butterfly
Bio: I’m pretty social. I mix well with everyone. I’m good at soothing and comforting people, calming them down, building their strength, and handling unexpected mood-swings. And I blend into a crowd very seamlessly. Let’s party this weekend?
Location: You’ll find me…

Salicylic Acid

Designation: Your Next-Door Hitman
Bio: I’m the alpha. I’ll protect you fiercely, and beat up anyone or anything that might hurt you. They’ll be as good as dead. I know I’m a little intense, but you’ll be safe with me.
Location: You’ll find me…

Bakuchiol

Designation: The Sensitive Guy
Bio: Do you know Retinol? Trust me when I say I’m not as irritating as them. They’re my younger, ‘cooler’ sibling, and I’m pretty much like them—just a little more mature and empathetic, you know? Let me take you out soon?
Location: You’ll find me…

Glycerin

Designation: The Soulmate
Bio: My friends describe my company as refreshing, and it’s so flattering. A fact about me? I’m such a water-baby. Let’s go for a swim on our first date? And…this might sound creepy, but feel like I’m already a part of you. Just look within, and there I’ll be.
Location: You’ll find me…

See? Isn’t this so much better? I told you. Now that you know where to find each of them, you decide your skin’s needs, type, desire, and boundaries, and give one of them a try. You won’t regret it.
