Skin is body’s largest organ. In order to achieve optimal skin health, a proper skin regimen is essential and must include 3 elements- prevention, protection, and correction.
A 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!
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.
Serums in the preventative category can help combat photo aging and the onset of more serious skin conditions. Studies have shown that antioxidants effectively neutralize free radicals generated when skin is exposed to environmental insults. An antioxidant serum used with sunscreen can provide complete photo protection-preventing photoaging-fine lines and wrinkles.
Serums in the corrective category combine reparative, lightening and exfoliating ingredients to help rehabilitate damaged skin restoring a healthy and more youthful appearance.
One can use a preventative serum in the morning and a corrective one at night after cleansing and before moisturizing.
Here is a suggestive AM and PM skin regimen, some steps require more than one product:
*Cleanse and tone *Cleanse and tone
