by 8.1K views 8.1K views  

As a beauty writer and a borderline skincare hoarder, people often ask me a lot of questions about ingredients and formulas—mainly about leading formulas and products that one should invest in. But it’s never just about one ingredient or one skincare concern that a good product focuses on. It’s all about the mix.

So, the actual question is—what ingredients go well together when mixed with one another? I’ve always leaned towards a good mix of science and nature. The perfect concoctions are an ideal blend of active ingredients whipped up in a lab and elements borrowed from nature, that target various skincare concerns.

Enter Nykaa SKINRX. A bridge between science and nature, the brand is formulated with highly effective, globally recognized, and scientifically researched ingredients. Every bottle boasts of a combination of components that are happy together and care for your skin on multiple fronts. It is a dermatologically tested, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free brand. A line of much-awaited Nykaa SKINRX serums will help us get a step closer to having perfect skin! Thank you Nykaa.

Nykaa SKINRX 2% Ceramide Deep Nourish

What are ceramides? These are fat molecules present in your skin’s barrier. They help retain your skin’s moisture and protect it from external damaging aggressors like pollution and dirt. With this serum, you can strengthen your skin’s protective barrier and make it more hydrated and plump.

What else is in the mix? In this bottle, you’ll find the goodness of oats and olive omega as well. They will repair, nourish and soothe your skin with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Result: Instantly moisturised and soothed skin!

Nykaa SKINRX 2% Multi Peptide 9 in 1

What are peptides? They are strings of amino acids that help build skin and muscle cells. They promote the growth of collagen and elastin and are predominantly used to fight the signs of ageing in skincare. You'll visibly see the change with your skin looking more youthful and firm.

What else is in the mix? The bottle of goodness also contains Australian Skinectura. It is a natural active ingredient that shows rapid skin firming effects on the skin.

Result: Youthful, firm, lifted and restored skin!


What are AHAs and BHAs? Both are skin exfoliators. Alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs are water-soluble acids that renew the surface of your skin while beta hydroxy acids are oil-soluble and go deeper into your pores to remove sebum and dead skin cells. Basically, they speed up the process of skin revival to make it smoother, plump and even.

What else is in the mix? Other than glycolic acid (AHA) and salicylic acid (BHA), this formula is also enriched with aquaxil. It's a derivative of plant sugars that smoothens and hydrates your skin.

Result: Visibly radiant, smoother and more even skin!


What is Vitamin C? It is also called ascorbic acid, a vitamin that is quintessential to your skincare regime. It is one of the best anti-ageing, glow-boosting, and collagen-stimulating ingredients, that truly works on every type of skin.

What else is in the mix? This formula is also enriched with hyaluronic acid for deep hydration and ferulic acid that is an effective anti-oxidant and also helps reduce the signs of ageing.

Result: A boost of radiance that fights against all odds!

Nykaa SKINRX  Spot Correct with 10% Niacinamide Serum
