The debate rages on. Some of us swear by serums, while others couldn’t survive without a rich hydrating cream. So, let’s take a look at what those serums can offer:
Rejuvenating Serum – MILA MOURSI
Mila Moursi’s Rejuvenating Serum is a powerful cruelty-free elixir that visibly tightens, hydrates, and plumps the skin to restore radiance. It deeply hydrates without clogging pores, smooths the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and encourages collagen synthesis for bright, firm, supple skin.
Anti-Pigment Dual Serum – EUCERIN Eucerin
Anti-Pigment Dual Serum is a dual-action serum that both reduces dark spots and prevents their reappearance. It contains thiamidol, an active ingredient that acts at the root cause of hyperpigmentation by reducing melanin production. This dual serum also contains concentrated hyaluronic acid, an effective moisturizing ingredient that helps the skin attract and retain moisture.
NATAVIS Brightening Facial Serum – SOURCE BEAUTY
This concentrated formula, which you can buy from Source Beauty, contains a host of ingredients, including aloe vera, glycerin, various plant leaf extracts and argan oil that will help hydrate and boost the appearance of your skin, creating a more youthful complexion.
24k Gold Collagen Skin Rejuvenating Facial Serum 30ml – EVA
Golden vitamin E spheres provide skin with anti-oxidant protection from environmental stressors and provide skin with naturally active ingredients, increasing firmness, visibly reducing wrinkles depth and providing instant hydration.
- Serums are light, fast-absorbing liquids, made of very small molecules, so the skin absorbs them quickly and deeply.
- They can be used as an alternative or in addition to creams or lotions.
- Most of the fluid in serums is eliminated so what you’re left with is a high concentration of active ingredients.
- Serums contain a potent dose of anti-aging ingredients, such as antioxidants, peptides, and skin brighteners like kojic acid.
- Serums have a non-greasy finish and they don’t leave behind a sticky residue, making them great for anyone with oily skin.
- Serums are good for smoothing fine lines and reducing age spots.
- Serums can be the costliest product in many skincare lines, (but a little goes a long way).
- The liquid or gel-like texture of serums may not be suitable for chronic skin conditions like eczema or rosacea, which weaken the skin barrier. Serums may penetrate too quickly, causing irritation.
- If you have mature or dry skin, you can’t get away with using just a serum. You may need to use it with the hydration that a rich day or night cream provides.
