From anti-aging to radiance boosting benefits, the beauty buzz is out! Here’s why face serums are quickly becoming recognized by beauty editors, skin care experts, and consumers everywhere as amazing skin care products that help create glowing, healthy skin.
As Alexandra Gonzalez of RealSimple says, “using one of these lightweight concoctions adds a step to your routine, but with their powerful antioxidants they can make the difference between dull and radiant skin.” Let’s delve into the reasons why face serums provide radical improvements to the appearance and texture of your skin.
Why Use Face Serums?
A face serum is a quickly-absorbing, lightweight skin care product that contains a highly concentrated mixture of skin treatments, such as DMAE, alpha lipoic acid, CoQ10, peptides, and powerful vitamins. Face serums were developed to provide your skin with essential nutrients that deliver fast-acting, rapidly transforming results.
In speaking with Dr. Joseph Rheim (a leading Dermatologist in Monterey, California) about various skin care treatments that are both effective and easy-to-use, he shared his belief that Retinol is one of the most important skin care products that any person who wants to achieve visible, anti-aging results should use on a daily basis. He went on to explain that Retinol should be used at night time (as it can cause sun sensitivity), while powerful face serums should be applied in the morning (to see the most noticeable improvements in the look and feel of your skin).
How To Use Face Serums
1. After cleansing your skin with a face cleanser, the first step in your skin care regime should be to apply a face serum. There are a wide range of face serum products on the market that do everything from firming and toning skin to brightening skin and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
2. After allowing the face serum to be absorbed into your skin (allow about a minute), next apply a lightweight, moisturizer to hydrate and replenish your skin.
3. As a final step in your skin care process, always apply a SPF sunscreen, to protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun.
Over the course of a few weeks, by using a face serum, you will start to see visible improvements to your skin. Positive changes include lightening of sun spots and discoloration, increased brightness and radiance, minimized appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a noticeable change in the tone and texture of your skin.
