Pick Your Perfect Potion
No matter what concerns you have for your skin, there’s a serum designated for your complexion’s needs. Because serums are lighter and can penetrate your skin more effectively, you can use more than one to give your complexion a well-rounded approach to skincare and protection.
Here’s how to decode and pick what serums for you.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
To keep your skins production of collagen at its peak, take a daily dose of skin vitamins—Vitamin C and Retinal (Vitamin A). Both are powerful multi-tasking ingredients to combat wrinkles by strengthening collagen and increasing cellular turnover. They also help to tone facial contours while diminishing fine lines, as well as help delay any further signs of aging.
Use a moisture-plumping serum with Hyaluronic Acid to help bind water to the skin and provide continuous hydration. Follow with Argan Oil to not only provide additional moisture, but to nourish dry skin by helping to restore the skin barrier and hold water and nutrients in.
Sun Damage, Age Spots and Discoloration
Look for natural ingredients that reduce and prevent hyperpigmentation by regulating and balancing melanin production- like Malic Acid and Vitamin C. In addition, it’s important to load up on antioxidants to help neutralize free radicals that not only improve skin’s natural defenses, but also help prevent further discoloration.
Compromised and irritated skin needs an antioxidant rich, protective serum with anti-inflammatory ingredients, like Niacinamide. This Vitamin B3 derivative not only improves the skins barrier function and help reduce redness, but also has tremendous anti-aging effects that stimulate collagen synthesis.
Lifting and Firming
Use a serum with an intensive humectant, like Hyaluronic Acid, that replenishes skins’ moisture content to firm and lift facial contours; and Peptides to refine skin texture. Together, Peptides stimulate collagen production to boost elasticity, while Hyaluronic Acid fills and plumps fine lines and wrinkles.
If you are looking to target and help diminish deep wrinkles and expression lines, use collagen building Peptides and Retinal. Bioactive Peptides and Retinal help improve skin’s regenerative abilities by increasing firmness and elasticity while minimizing expressional lines.
Oiliness and Visible Pores
Use a Retinal based serum to help eliminate dead skin cells to expedite the removal of pore-clogging debris. Partner with a shine controlling serum with natural absorbing clay minerals to reduce oil production and help clarify pores.
Breakout prone skin also benefits form Retinal to help smooth skins texture, accelerate cellular turnover, and prevent clogged pores. Vitamin C is also excellent—it provides antioxidant protection while reducing redness and inflammation, often associated with acne-prone skin.
