Three Of The Best Face Serums

Face serums are more lightweight than traditional moisturizers and often a lot more potent. Face moisturizers generally do just that; moisturize and hydrate. Face serums have the ability to penetrate much deeper into the skin due to their light texture. Let’s take a look at three of the most popular types of serums available today.

Vitamin C Serum

Most of us know the health benefits of getting our daily dose of vitamin c in but did you know it can also boost collagen production and help protect your skin against the sun?A vitamin c serum should be applied topically in the morning prior to sunscreen application for optimum results.

Benefits of using a vitamin c serum include decreases hyperpigmentation (brown spots) for a more youthful and radiant appearance and fewer fine lines. Many vitamin c serums also contain other powerful ingredients such as Vitamin E and ferulic acid which complement vitamin c and enhances absorption.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum

A hyaluronic acid serum can be especially useful during winter months when skin can be dry and parched. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water which makes it excellent for hydration. The most effective way to apply hyaluronic acid serum is to gently massage a few drops on your face right before you apply moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid will work together with your moisturizer in order to keep your skin well hydrated.

Glycolic Acid Serum

Glcyolic acid serums have many uses; they can be used to minimize fine lines, acne scars and brown spots by deep exfoliating the top of layers of the skin revealing the fresher skin underneath. Glycolic acid is a type of AHA (alpha hydroxy acid). If you have sensitive skin you may want to start off using a lower concentration and work your way up. Glycolic acid serums are a more affordable option to pricier in-office peels.
