Skin Serums: What You Need to Know
As you age, your skin’s collagen production naturally begins slow down. The collagen becomes thin which makes lines and sagging more prominent. A daily application of skin serum helps turn back the hands of time and give your skin a more youthful appearance. Skin serums target and help repair a variety of problems we face as we age.
How Do Skin Serums Work?
Unlike traditional skin moisturizers, skin serums are readily absorbed by the skin to reach the skin’s deep layers. Generally, skin serums are applied to the skin’s surface once or twice a day for best results. Unlike heavy lotions, skin serums are water-based and lightweight. After application, they leave behind no sticky or oily residues.
Plumps skin from the inside out.
Skin serums work by penetrating the skin’s top layers to plump and restore the depleted collagen to give skin a firmer, fuller, and more youthful appearance.
Repairs cellular DNA.
Serums heal the skin’s cellular DNA. As the cells rejuvenate and repair themselves, the skin’s moisture levels rise and pores become less noticeable.
The skin’s antioxidants are restored for rejuvenated skin.
Thickens the epidermis.
The epidermis layer of the skin thickens to smooth out fine lines in the skin’s surface.
Improves texture & elasticity.
With regular use, skin’s texture and elasticity improves.
Your skin will glow.
The skin’s color balances and a more youthful luminosity is restored.
Hydrates the skin.
Skin’s hydration is increased which helps plump out wrinkles and fine lines.
Common Skin Serum Ingredients
Most skin serums do not contain heavy oils, which makes them ideal for people with naturally oily skin. Generally, skin serums are water-based with high concentrations of antioxidants, skin-brighteners, and peptides. The increased ratio of active ingredients means that it takes only a tiny bit of skin serum to be highly effective.
Skin serums contain one or more antioxidants such as Vitamin C, grape seed extract, or pomegranate extract. Antioxidants help fight sun damage and free radicals which all cause skin aging and fine lines to develop in the skin’s surface.
Anti-inflammatories such as goldenseal, aloe vera, or zinc help prevent inflammatory cell damage. They also neutralize redness.
Hydrators play a key role in skin serums by strengthening the skin’s barrier and helping build strong cell membranes. Many skin serum products use ceramides, amino acids, essential fatty acids and ceramides for primary hydration.
