One of the newest high-potency, no-frills, ingredient-focused skincare products from The Ordinary is Pycnogenol 5%, a natural plant extract that comes from the pine bark of French maritime pine trees. The ingredient is powerfully effective for rejuvenating the skin by enhancing hydration and firmness, especially since it is a plant-derived antioxidant that targets free radicals. The vegan-friendly two-ingredient formula is water-free, alcohol-free and additionally made without gluten, nuts and silicone.
When it comes to incorporating Pycnogenol 5% into a skincare routine, The Ordinary recommends applying it on its own, or alternatively using it before oils or creams, after water-based serums, or even combining it with other treatments to boost their antioxidant effects.
