FRIDAY FIVE – SerumsMarch 17, 2017
Here are my favourite serums:
1. Skin ceuticals C E Feluric Antioxidant serum- This is an award winning product and its got a very high stability form of vitamin c at 15%. It should be worn during the day and can be applied every 2-3 days because this form of vitamin C can stay in the skin for 72 hours. This serum protects the skin from daily factors such as UV, pollution and free radicals. Helps with ageing of the skin, improving fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness and brightening of the skin. I only use this in the mornings under my day cream. Skin ceuticals Hydrating B5 serum. This serum is good to use if you have a dermaroller. Hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in this serum and this is great for plumping the skin from within. Feeding the cells with water and hydrating the skin. Great for all skin types especially dry. I will use this one in the evening, especially after rolling as the nourishing ingredients go deeper into the skin.
2.Environ advanced peptide cream – this is another product that I use after rolling. It is a cross between a serum and a cream. It helps to activate the skins repair process. It has peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. . These ingredients help to boost the production of collagen and elastin, the fibres that hold our skin together.
3. Murad Hydro dyanamic quench serum- this is a great serum for holding in moisture in the skin. For all skin types especially dry and ageing skin. It has the ability with glycolic acid and Mexican blue algae leaf to restore the skins own natural moisture, plumping the skin. Can be used daily, in the am and pm.
4. Dermaquest Retexture serum – this is quite an active serum with retinol (vitamin a) and glycolic acid. These ingredients help to speed up the skin cell cycle. Increasing the cell turnover of the skin, getting rid of old dead skin cells and letting the newer healthier cells out. This serum helps to diminish the signs of ageing like fine lines. It helps to brighten the skin and leave a nice glow on the skin. This serum I would only use in the PM every few nights not every night.
5. La Colline Moisture boost hydration serum – this is the newest product I have been trying and I really love it. La colline skincare focuses primarily on anti-ageing of the skin and complete hydration of the skin at a cellular level. It’s a complete luxurious brand and I have never used a product that made my skin feel so good as this range did. Ingredients such as vitamin E and blackcurrent oil it simply smoothes the skin and hydrates it from the inside out.
What serum do you use?
Look out for key ingredients in your skincare products, dont buy just for the brand. ingredients are whats important.
