In today's post, we'll be talking about 4 highly sought-after ingredients that we recommend checking out, no matter your skin type or condition.

Products with skin-soothing ingredients are highly sought-after.

We will also be sharing some best-selling skin-soothing products that Altheans have been raving about. To find out what those products are, keep on reading!

Great for those with oily, acne-prone skin - Green Tea

1. Green Tea
Rich with antioxidants and nutrients, green tea is famous for having a ton of benefits for the skin (one of those being skin-soothing). Green tea is especially great for those with oily and acne-prone skin because of its antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties that improve and treat acne.

Green tea is also effective in reducing sebum excretion, which helps slow or stop excess sebum from clogging and turning into acne.

Your go-to skin soother - Aloe Vera

2. Aloe Vera
A cult-fave ingredient, especially for those living in hot countries, aloe vera is so synonymous with soothing that it's the first ingredient people think of when dealing with sunburns. Lightweight and cooling to the touch, aloe vera is a cactus-like plant that is popular for its healing and medicinal properties.

Used all throughout history, aloe vera gel contains vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, and amino acids that give strong relief and healing to damaged skin.

The trendiest soothing ingredient in these past few years - Cica

3. Cica
One of the more recent trendy ingredients that have been making its rounds, cica (or Centella Asiatica) is the number 1 ingredient that's been on everyone's lips when it comes to soothing for the past few years. Almost every skincare brand now carries cica products!

Known in Asia as what tigers rub on their wounds to help their skin regenerate, cica helps to soothe and repair irritated skin. Full of amino acids and vitamins like Vitamin C, A, B1, and B2, cica not only provides anti-inflammatory benefits. It also helps to stimulate collagen production, helping to repair the skin and making it firmer at the same time. It's an ingredient that doubles as an anti-aging ingredient as well!

Humectant & skin barrier reinforcer - Panthenol

4. Panthenol
A very common ingredient in skincare, Panthenol (also known as the alcohol form of B5) is a humectant. This means that it holds and binds not only moisture but other moisturizing ingredients as well. Both moisturizing and hydrating, it attracts moisture to the skin and helps to retain that moisture, giving your skin the chance to produce its own moisture and hydrate itself from within.

What makes Panthenol great is that it actually creates a protective skin barrier, reducing the risk of dehydration and dryness!

Now that we've shared a bit about our hero ingredients above, here are some of our curated picks, all of which contain at least of the skin-soothing ingredients we've mentioned above:

Calming Serum: Green tea + Panthenol 

Powered by 76% Green tea + Panthenol, this cruelty-free serum helps to improve the skin condition and prevent early signs of aging caused by sun damage. Because green tea contains Vitamin C, it also helps to brighten dull skin for a healthier complexion. Panthenol, on the other hand, strengthens the skin barrier and preventing moisture loss.

Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist

Made from 92% Aloe Vera gel, this soothing gel mist is enriched with vitamins and is great for keeping the skin hydrated, soothed, and cool throughout the day. The aloe vera used to make this product comes from certified organic farmers in California (CCOF) and is kind to even the most sensitive of skins, making this suitable for all skin types. Whether you like using this to set your makeup or to stay chill on a hot day, this is a definite must-have in your beauty routine!

The Professional Ice Calming Cooler 

Aritaum’s Professional Ice Calming Cooler can be stored in the fridge before use to calm redness, soothe irritations and cool heated skin. Use it with your favorite soothing gel and massage your face in gentle, circular motions to relieve swelling and improve blood circulation!

Cica Sleeping Mask

Did you know that your skin repairs itself while you sleep? Give it a helping hand with Laneige's Cica Sleeping Mask, a soothing and repairing formula to treat dryness and redness. Infused with Amore Pacific's patented 'Forest Yeast' derived from cica, it helps to strengthen the skin's barrier, preventing future irritations and calming the skin as you rest, leaving you with skin that's even, balanced and supple in the morning.

Dr. Belmeur Advanced Cica Hydro Cream

THE FACE SHOP's Dr.Belmeur line uses skin-repairing ingredients to treat and improve the skin, and the Advanced Cica Hydro Cream is a facial moisturizer rich in ingredients like Centella Asiatica extract, Hyaluronic Acid, and Beta Glucan. Helping to protect your skin barrier and add hydration to the skin, your skin will be left feeling extra hydrated and soothed upon application!
