Pureman is proud to be an official stockist of The Ordinary and their incredible line of skin care products. From Vitamin C to retinoids and direct acids within their numerous serums and solutions, The Ordinary will turn your skin care routine on its head and leave you looking and feeling your best.

Direct acids found in some of these products work to improve hydration and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid (HA) 2% + B5 is one such product. Hyaluronic acid can deeply hydrate the skin and helps to reduce the signs of aging by softening those unwanted lines and wrinkles.

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% is a mild exfoliant that can also reduce inflammation, when used correctly. Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin; The benefits can be both quick to notice and impressive, however, take your time introducing this product into your regime so as not to cause irritation or inflammation. Your skin needs to build a proper tolerance when using strong acid based products.

Of course, the incredible antioxidant and L-ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C, fights free radicals, boosts collagen production and in turn brightens your skin and combats the signs of aging - just check out our last post on The Ordinary and the Benefits of Vitamin C for a taste of what else this cheeky acid offers. 

When you’re looking for skin care treatments that work the best for you, do your homework. Direct acids can be incredibly beneficial, but they aren’t for everyone and have to be used correctly to get the best results.
