A LOOK AT SERUMS...

by Christina


Why we need them:

They contain the most potent doses of anti-aging ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, and brighteners and are therefore excellent in combating the signs of aging!

Pros:

  • Weightless product feel.
  • Highest concentration of active ingredients = super efficient.
  • Long-lasting!
  • Penetrates the skin faster and more effectively.
  • Helps fight the signs of aging.

Cons:

  • Usually very expensive!
  • Can cause irritation and allergic reactions to those with sensitive skin.
  • Not a good match for individuals who have Eczema or Rosacea, as they have a weakened skin barrier and usage can cause flareups of the skin condition.
  • Designed normally to only treat a specific problem.

What's the best way to apply?

  1. Start with cleansed and toned skin.
  2. Use very little amount-a pea sized amount is good!
  3. Spread on your face and neck area.
  4. Follow with moisturizer, 
  5. Try to use overnight, as serums tend to be absorbed better during this time period.

MY TOP SERUM PICKS:

  1. Lancome- Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate
  2. Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Resurfacer
  3. Tarte- Maracuja Oil {this is really a treatment oil but it's the price, feel, and ingredients it made the list!}
  4. Benefit- Instant Comeback Specialist Facial Serum
