5 Reasons Why You Need a Face Serum
Does your skincare routine include a serum? If not, you may be missing out on some major benefits. Serums are generally applied to the skin after cleansing but before moisturizing to fully allow the ingredients to absorb into the skin. Serums are designed to target specific skincare issues, such as blemishes, brown spots, wrinkles, or sagging skin. Here are just a few good reasons why you need a face serum. 1. Combat Sun Damage Sun damage can take years off your skin. Fortunately, the right anti-aging cream can do wonders for your sun-kissed complexion. When used in conjunction with a daily SPF, a serum can help repair and nourish skin for better texture, pigmentation, and overall vibrancy. Avoid unprotected exposure to sunlight in the future which can speed up the aging process. 2. Smooth Wrinkles Wrinkle serums are one of the simplest ways to give tired skin a much-needed boost. Smooth wrinkles and look younger with the Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum by Dr. Sylvia Skin Care. This powerful face serum targets age-related degradation and reactivates collagen to repair skin density, texture, and firmness. It also contains Swiss Apple, Centella Stem Cells, and Gotu Kola which help improve skin tone and elasticity. 3. Brighten a Dull Complexion While the most common cause of dull skin is dryness, other factors such as smoking, dehydration, excessive alcohol consumption, and poor diet can affect your complexion. Face skin care products can help hydrate and nourish skin for a brighter appearance. Serums containing antioxidants and other nourishing ingredients deliver essential nutrients to the skin to create a healthy glow. 4. Neutralize Free Radicals Free radicals can have numerous causes, such as dust, smog, cigarette smoke, and sun damage. When free radicals attack the skin, the damage often presents in the form of discoloration or weakened skin that has become saggy and loose due to damaged elastic fibers. A vitamin C serum like the Vitamin C 20% With Ferulic Acid by Dr. Sylvia Skin Care helps to fight off free radicals for healthier skin. 5. Fade Dark Spots Dark spots on the skin can develop for a wide range of reasons, ranging from sun damage to inflammatory issues. There are many serums on the market that help to correct dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Ingredients like Vitamin C for the skin magnified by ferulic acid act as natural skin brighteners. When applied on a routine basis, these serums gradually reduce dark spots for a more even skin tone. Serums have become increasingly popular as of late and the reasons are clear. These feather light formulas are able to intensify the benefits of your existing skincare routine for a comprehensive approach to anti-aging. You’ll find that most modern serums contain a higher concentration of active ingredients to ensure that the deepest layers of skin are reached using just a few drops of product.
