First of all--What is serum?
A serum is a skincare product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing with the intent of delivering powerful ingredients directly into the skin. Serums are particularly well suited to this task because they're made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. This makes them a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles.
A serum can be used morning and/or night. Use your Retinol serums at night and your Vitamin C, Peptide, and Plant Stem Cell Serums during the day. Always layer a serum first and moisturizer second. That way, the moisturizer seals in all of the serum's nourishing properties.
How do I know I need a Serum?
For boosting radiance, targeting fine lines, fading discoloration, minimizing pores, and deep hydration you can't beat a game-changing serum.
Serums take skin care to a new level because they are formulated to transform skin by delivering a potent shot of active ingredients directly where you need it.
You should notice an improvement in 2-4 weeks, with optimum improvement in 3-4 months. But, remember, like exercise, improvement lasts only as long as you consistently use your serums.
Vitamin C Serums - Antioxidant-rich serums (such as those rich in Vitamin C) tend to work well at preventing oxidative strain from pollution and UV radiation that we are all exposed to during the day, making them ideal for application under a sunscreen in the morning. These multifunctional serums work to protect the skin as well as improve the evenness of the skin tone and reduce the number and depth of facial wrinkles.
Peptide Serums - Serums rich in peptides can help to boost collagen and elastin production and restore firmness to the skin.
Retinol Serums - Serums formulated with retinol can help accelerate cellular renewal and can brighten the skin and make it appear more luminous and smooth. Retinols address uneven skin tones, sun damage.
Plant Stem Cell Serums - Accelerate the skin’s natural repair process and fight skin aging. These Serums can stimulate better cell turnover, leading to more youthful skin cells at the surface of the skin.
