7 skin-loving makeup ingredients to give your skin a boost

Skin loving makeup ingredients

When it comes to looking after your skin, choosing beauty products that include skin-loving ingredients is super important. The right ingredients can help keep your skin feel balanced, slow down the visible signs of aging and leave your skin looking hydrated, glowing and healthy.

But here’s the thing: choosing skin-loving products doesn’t just stop at skincare. The ingredients in your makeup plays an important role in keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy too. If you’re wondering what ingredients to look for in makeup, you’ve come to the right place! At DB Cosmetics, you’ll find skin-loving ingredients in most of our makeup, helping you achieve that goddess glow. Get to know some of the key ingredients for healthy skin below.

#1 Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a secret weapon for slowing down the signs of aging. But what is Vitamin A? Retinol, found in many effective anti-aging products, derives from Vitamin A and helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, and visible pores. It works by stimulating blood flow and collagen production while also tightening pores. 

If you want the skin benefits of Vitamin A in your beauty routine, check out our Skin Renew Ceramide Foundation. This innovative foundation delivers a perfect natural coverage, feels lightweight on the skin, and its Vitamin A-rich formula helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

#2 Vitamin C

We all know that Vitamin C is a great immunity-booster, but did you know that it’s great for your skin too? Vitamin C is an antioxidant that boosts collagen production and inhibits pigment formation. It works by brightening your skin and helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties help protect the skin from pollution, leaving it glowing with health.

To reap all of the benefits of Vitamin C for glowing skin, try our Natural Ground Minerals Foundation. Formulated with Superfruit Pomegranate Extract, this natural foundation helps the skin retain its moisture and brightness, giving you a fresh, flawless finish every time.

#3 Vitamin E

Vitamin E is found in many moisturising products, helping to leave your skin feeling baby soft. Protecting against free-radical damage, it’s a must-have for healthy skin. It’s a great skincare ingredient, and is also found in lip products such as lip balm or lipstick to help your lips feel soft and moisturised all day.

Get your Vitamin E fix with the help of our Lip Boost Plumping Lip Gloss, which will leave your lips lovely and nourished, while giving them instant volume for a fuller-looking pout. It’s available in various shades so you can find the perfect hydrating lip gloss for every occasion!

#4 Green Tea

Many people drink green tea for its antioxidant properties, but it’s also a super treat for your skin. Extracted from green tea leaves, Green Tea Extract in skincare helps fight free radicals, helps with anti-aging and it can soothe sun damage too. 

If you’re more of an iced coffee gal, you can enjoy some of the Green Tea benefits in our Luminous Hydrating Foundation. Hydrating and super dewy, this foundation will become your all-time favourite for creating a naturally radiant complexion.

#5 Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has some incredible soothing properties for your skin. It is a life-saviour to help fix dry skin, and is also a wonderful healing agent, particularly if you’ve got irritated or sunburnt skin.

We use Aloe Vera in a number of DB Cosmetics products to make sure we’re giving your skin the best hydrating ingredients. Our Mist Me Setting Spray, for example, is enriched with Aloe Vera for a refreshing & hydrating finsh. It will invigorate the skin & help extend the wear time of your makeup.

#6 Peptides

Peptides are the tiny protein fragments that help repair skin and encourage collagen growth. Collagen Peptides are found in many skincare products to help achieve youthful, plump skin. 

Our Mineral Veil Powder Foundation contains Peptides to nourish your skin and give it an extra boost. It is formulated with various antioxidant ingredients to keep your skin looking young and feeling silky-soft, and even has natural SPF 25 to keep your skin protected from UV rays.

#7 Coenzyme Q10

As we age, our skin tends to lose its natural Coenzyme Q10, leading to the fine lines and wrinkles we know and loathe. By adding it back into the skin, you can help fight fine lines and protect skin cell function for improved skin texture. 

Give your skin a boost of Coenzyme Q10 benefits with our BB Cream All-in-One Skin Perfector, which gives your skin a nice lightweight coverage and features SPF15 to help protect your skin from sun damage.
