What is a Serum?
Serum is a skincare product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing with the intent of delivering powerful ingredients directly into the skin. Serum is particularly suited to this task because it is made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. This makes them a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles. Goodbye, signs of aging!
Is serum a moisturizer?
Yes, and no. Serums can be chock-full of moisturizing ingredients (hyaluronic acid, ceramides) to help skin retain moisture. But, that doesn’t make them moisturizers in the traditional sense. Face lotions and creams are richer and create a barrier on top of the skin to keep all that good stuff in.
Face glow serum fights acne, hydrates skin, and improves tone and texture, so if a clear, healthy glow is what you’re looking for — this is the stuff for you. Since its oil-free, it doesn’t clog pores, and because it doesn’t contain any fragrance, it shouldn’t irritate sensitive complexions, either.
Face glow serum includes:
Glutathione: Glutathione shows skin lightening as well as age defying effects!
Alpha arbutin: Alpha arbutin is a naturally occurring antioxidant and skin brightener that is naturally found in the bearberry plant. It reduces melanin formation, improving the appearance of age spots, freckles, melasma, and post-inflammatory pigmentation.
Vitamin b3: In its niacin amide form, the vitamin works to prevent water loss and retain skin’s moisture content. It’s also known to increase keratin. When it comes to aging skin, niacin amide improves the surface structure, helping smooth out skin’s texture and reduce the look of wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid: Keeps your skin moisturized and radian.
Vitamin e: Applying vitamin E onto the skin helps increase nutrient levels and reduce stretch mark if applied on a regular basis. Scars and brown spots can with the help of this natural skin tone lightener.
