Trying to grasp atomic structures and ionic compounds in science wasn't always all that thrilling for us, and presumably—and it's amazing if it is—it's not your forte. Yet poring over the ingredient lists on skincare products is practically a hobby. We all love hearing about the latest skincare ingredients to deliver big results and usually rush to the nearest shop to find them afterward. This is the kind of science we can all get excited about. So for strictly educational purposes, it's our duty to share something that might have had your eyes glazing over in chemistry, but with these serious skin claims, you'll want to know all about it.

We're talking about amino acids for skin. They're essential throughout the body but may be especially beneficial for your skin.

Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Nectar, $65

This ointment-to-serum concoction is our go-to for any skin irritation, and one of the founders of the brand even claims it's the only thing that has cured her eczema. It's chock-full of the brand's proprietary tulip-based complex, which is meant to provide a rich source of amino acids to soothe whatever maladies may come your way. It also utilizes white horehound and hyaluronic acid meant to draw in and seal away moisture.
