Serums

I think most of us are on the lookout for skin care products or treatments that are going to cure our skin concerns and help us age gracefully. There are so many products out there that are claiming to do it all. How do we know which products are actually going to work?! Well, one of the most important ways of knowing if a product is going to be beneficial for us is to look at the ingredients. Generally, serums have the highest percentage of active ingredients. This makes serums one of the most affective and beneficial of all skincare products. This is also why they are usually the most expensive products to purchase. Knowing what serums to buy for your skin concerns can be tricky but hopefully this will help you understand what ingredients and serums to look out for to best fit your skin's needs!

What Ingredients To Look For

The one size fits all mentality seems great in theory, however that is not the case when it comes to skincare. Face serums target a number of different skin problems.The varying types of serums, along with the selection of active ingredients serve many different functions and offer various benefits. I'm going to narrow it down by detailing what ingredients to look for and listing off some recommended serums for each major skin concern.

Anti-Aging Serums

Facial serums are most known for their amazing anti-aging benefits. These serums are able to treat the most common signs of aging along with slowing down the process in general. They target fine lines, sagging, & wrinkles, while firming and plumping the skin. Anti-aging serums also focus on stimulating collagen production.

Acne Fighting Serums

We usually treat acne in a reactive manner, after we’re already deep in a breakout. The goal is really to prevent breakouts before they occur. Serums are uniquely positioned to do just that. They are formulated with small molecules that can easily dive deep into the skin and deliver potent active ingredients. Serums can help stop acne breakouts before they even start. They can also aid in fading acne scars, while gently removing any buildup of dead skin cells. Acne fighting serums tighten skin, unclog and minimize pores, absorb excess oil, and minimize  redness or irritation.

Hydrating Serums

When your skin is dry and dehydrated, sometimes moisturizers just don’t cut it. This is where face serums come into play. However, face serums aren’t meant to replace your daily moisturizer. They work in unison with your moisturizer to amplify the hydrating effects. These particular face serums penetrate deep into your pores to deliver an extra layer of hydration. Your moisturizer should be applied after your serum as it helps lock in these beneficial ingredients.
