It's easy to get lost in all the beauty world buzzwords.

Get ready to meet the MVPs of Beyond Glow.

1. Snail Mucin

Snail mucin, or snail secretion filtrate as it’s also known, is the hot new ingredient skin care aficionados can’t get enough of. It’s rich in nutrients like hyaluronic acid, glycoproteins and antioxidants, and is believed to have a range of benefits for the skin. Composed of proteins, enzymes, peptides and trace minerals, snail mucin helps to keep snails hydrated and creates a barrier. It may help reduce the appearance of signs of aging like wrinkles, uneven skin tone and sagging, and helps protect—no wonder it’s caused such a stir.
Must-Buy: Avon has two exciting new products, Beyond Glow Snail Mucin Complex + Niacinamide Serum and Beyond Glow Snail Mucin Complex + Panthenol Cream. Both the cream and serum contain Snail Mucin Complex and have been clinically tested to improve skin tone and brightness. In a consumer perception test, women said discolourations looked reduced and skin’s fine lines appeared softer.

2. Niacinamide

Based on a CNN interview with board certified dermatologist Dr. Adeline Kikam, “niacinamide (pronounced nahy-uh-sin-uh-mayhd) can help with various skin concerns, especially for those with oily and/or aging skin”. Touted as a multi-functional skin care superstar, niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, helps even skin tone and strengthen the skin barrier. It helps visibly improve discolouration, the appearance of skin texture and fine lines while targeting excess oil.

3. Vitamin C

Goodbye dullness, hello brilliance! Considered by many experts and skin care enthusiasts as a holy-grail ingredient that can restore your skin’s natural glow, Vitamin C is a brightening, visibly firming antioxidant that reduces the look of dark spots and dullness. It is known to help support skin against free radicals and even skin tone.

4. Ferulic Acid

Possibly the most underrated skin brightener. In a 2023 Allure article, New York City-based, board-certified dermatologist Hadley King, MD said “Ferulic Acid is an antioxidant found naturally in the walls of plant cells and has been proven to help stabilize multiple ingredients, such as vitamins C and E, so they can last longer without losing their potency”. A powerful antioxidant, it is known to help defend skin from environmental stressors.
Must-Buys: See how Beyond Glow Vitamin C 6% + Ferulic Acid Serum works wonders for your skin! Based on clinical testing on 30 subjects, it was found out that this formula improves skin radiance in 3 days and revitalizes skin in 2 weeks.
During sunshine season, your skin might start feeling a little parched. Beyond Glow Hyaluronic Acid 1.5% + Ferulic Acid Serum is an essential serum that pairs ferulic acid with hyaluronic acid to provide your skin with instant and lasting hydration anytime of the year.

5. Panthenol

Also known as pro-vitamin B5, panthenol helps smooth the look of skin and retain hydration. A humectant, which means it is a moisturizing agent, panthenol draws water into the outer layer of the skin or the stratum corneum, attracting and locking in much-needed moisture. 
Must-Buy: Beyond Glow Niacinamide 10% + Panthenol Serum refines and softens skin with a powerful moisturizing formula that helps visibly improve uneven skin tone and elasticity.

6. Hyaluronic Acid

The super hydrator, Hyaluronic Acid helps increase hydration levels, helping keep skin looking plump and bouncy. Sometimes referred to as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, it is a gooey, slippery substance that your body produces naturally. What’s more, based on a Cleveland Clinic article, hyaluronic acid is believed to be safe and reactions or adverse effects are rare. By helping restore moisture levels, hyaluronic acid improves the appearance of wrinkles and promotes a more youthful-looking complexion.
