Bigger is better – I am old enough to remember those slogans.

Back when I was young (CENTURIES ago, people!), minimalism wasn´t really a thing. You had to always have more. The newest, the latest, the biggest.

It didn´t matter if you did need it. Or even use it, for that matter. You just needed to HAVE it. And while minimalism (and low-buys) seem to be everywhere these days, I feel like some of that more is more mentality is still around.

Take skincare ingredients for example – some seem to think that the higher the percentage of “active ingredient”, the better the product, not taking into account that your skin can actually only absorb a certain amount, and once that amount is reached, the rest goes to waste.

The effect is called bioavailability, and for Vitamin C it seems to be somewhere around 20 – 25%.

Which means that a formula containing 30% Vitamin C, like THE INKEY LIST Vitamin C Serum, essentially contains more than you can use.

Whenever I try to learn a new language (which, to be honest, hasn´t happened in a long time!), I try to get to the point where I am able to read magazines.

Well, the actual “speaking” part should probably be taken into consideration when measuring language skills, but I am trying to make a point here.

Point is, I was feeling pretty good abut my skills at the language of skincare ingredients. Not quite “reading the classics” good, but at least “flicking comfortably through a magazine” good.

At least until I decided to venture into Asian skincare… Really, there is a whole new world of ingredients out there, and I struggle to add them all to my vocabulary.

But I try! Reading material of choice for today? klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drops *.
