Best Skincare Ingredient Duos Part 2

In the first post on the best natural ingredients that pair well together for skincare, we discussed four groups of ingredients that help exfoliate, moisturize, rejuvenate, and de-stress our skin.  Today we'll discuss four more duos and learn which we should start including in our skincare routine today.


Bamboo is useful for absorbing excess water and balancing oil production, this gives the skin a mattified, radiant glow.  The CLARISMA Daily Moisturizer contains bamboo to provide a stunning finish or even the perfect makeup base!

Squalane is an oil that is high in essential fatty acids, ideally derived from olives, not shark liver! These fatty acids are good for nourishing the skin and protecting the skin's natural barrier against the elements.

Both of these ingredients are beneficial for everyday use, but if your skin is on the oily side, it may be beneficial to use squalane two to three times per week.


Caviar Lime is a gentle natural ingredient that exfoliates and brightens the skin.  Caviar Lime is an essential part of the CLARISMA Enzyme Complex, found in every product!  Caviar Lime is safe for daily use and can provide an overall brightening effect to your complexion.

Vitamin C is similar to Caviar Lime in that it exfoliates and brightens your complexion, but it takes your skin to another level!  Vitamin C is a great ingredient to use when you want to target dark marks - apply Vitamin C twice a day to the spot.  Be sure to apply SPF when using this ingredient to help your skin fight against harsh UV rays.

However, if you have sensitive skin, try using Caviar Lime products a few times a week or every other day. (Still always apply your SPF!)


Monoi Oil is derived from Tahitian Plumeria flowers and is great for increasing hydration while soothing the skin.  It's an extremely nourishing oil which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.  You can find Pacific Monoi Oil in CLARISMA's Clarifying Night Mask and Energizing Mask.

Green Tea is one of the best antioxidants out there.  It attaches to the free radicals that try to damage the skin and counteracts them.

Both of these ingredients combined are great for sensitive and dry skin.


Acai is a great antioxidant for combating environmental aggressors while naturally increasing hydration levels in the skin.  You can achieve this benefit with any one of CLARISMA's incredible products.

Caffeine is another common ingredient that acts as a cellular energizer, great for using on the body for concerns like cellulite.  It is important, however, to only use caffeine on the face no more than one to two times per week.


Our CLARISMA Skin Quiz will help match your skin with the right products to start building your perfect skincare routine!  We recommend slowly integrating new additions into your routine and sticking with it (unless something drastic occurs).  For a quick and easy reference on how to safely layer your skincare, use this guide.
