Many things in life improve with time, a fine wine, a classic movie or family heirloom, but, sadly, our skin isn’t one of them.
In fact, TIME – along with toxins and pollutants – has been ravaging our once-youthful skin, leaving it dull, dry, lifeless and wrinkly.
Not to mention all those nights in your 30’s when you didn’t really care for your skin — you’d sleep with your makeup on, skip sunscreen and moisturizer and ignore the need for a good skin care routine (it’s ok, we’ve all been there).
Now that we’re in our 40s and 50s, lathering our skin with lotion or cream that only settles on its outermost layer can no longer quench our thirsty skin.
Research shows, it’s not actually the moisturizer, but the need for powerful, deeply penetrating nutrients and active ingredients that our skin can actually drink up and absorb to heal, restore, and rejuvenate itself from within. That’s where face serums come in!
Let’s talk about how serums work, the five most powerful ingredients every serum should have, and the newly-launched face serum by the aging expert that’s on a mission to change the way women age!
Our skin changes as we age and so do our requirements for maintaining that youthful glow. The older we get, the higher the level of love, care, and protection our skin needs, and serums fit the bill!
Serums are thin, slippery substances that contain active ingredients — skincare agents that address specific skin problems concerns.
Serums have smaller, highly absorbent molecules that enable them to penetrate the dermis layer of the skin!
By applying daily, serums can directly deposit active, potent ingredients deep into the skin to make its healing and restorative powers more effective.
You see, your typical moisturizing creams and lotions have bigger molecules that only settle on the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin. Also, they have at least 10x less active ingredients than a serum.
In other words, they can’t restore and rejuvenate the skin like a serum does, which is precisely the care we need to change the way we age.
But all serums are not equal. A serum is only as good as the quality and effectiveness of the ingredients inside the bottle.
To find the best face serum among the many options in the market, you must find these five age-defying, potent ingredients on the label.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in your skin that keeps it immensely hydrated and reverses the visible signs of aging.
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, a super absorbent substance that binds with water molecules in the air, pulls them into your skin and locks them in your precious dermal layer.
Doing this ensures your skin stays hydrated, plump and firm, giving your skin that translucent glow from the inside out!
An adequate amount of moisture also helps your skin maintain its elasticity, firmness, and plumpness and reduces the appearance of those dreaded dry patches, fine lines, and wrinkles. As a result, your skin will look smooth, tight, youthful and absolutely fabulous!
Hyaluronic acid is a perfect remedy to rough, dry, and dehydrated skin. It’s a key ingredient in slowing down aging and maintaining your youthful glow!
Unfortunately, our body’s own production of hyaluronic acid naturally decreases with age, much like collagen and elastin. That’s why you need a serum that delivers this potent ingredient deep into your skin to keep it moisturized, plump, and healthy.
Vitamin C is another potent substance with triple power:
However, this doesn’t mean that you can replace your SPF with vitamin C. The SPF in your sunscreen (which should be at least 30) absorbs the UV light when it hits your skin. Vitamin C can’t do that; it only blunts the harm that UV rays can cause.
Therefore, having enough high-quality collagen helps your skin maintain its health and integrity and keeps it from becoming wrinkly, crepey, and saggy.
If you think about it, the benefits of vitamin C prevent accelerated aging. Vitamin C keeps your skin healthy, bright, tight, and smooth — qualities that make you look and feel years younger!
So, you must find vitamin C on the label when choosing the best face serum for you.
The aloe vera gel is 90% water, so infusing aloe into a serum adds to its moisturizing properties. Aloe also has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties that do wonders for your skin.
Here are some fantastic aloe vera benefits that will make you excited to have it in your face serum:
1. Aloe contains sugar molecules that lock in moisture to the skin to keep it hydrated. Having enough moisture in the skin helps it stay plump and soft, which gives you a fresh glow.
2. Aloe stimulates fibroblasts, the cells found in your connective tissues that secrete collagen. And as we mentioned earlier, collagen is the scaffolding that keeps your skin free from wrinkles and fine lines.
These fibroblasts also produce elastin, the protein responsible for your skin’s elasticity or its ability to snap back into place after being stretched. It’s a key factor in preventing dynamic wrinkles.
In other words, amidst the aging process that naturally occurs as you get older, aloe is such a trooper in keeping your skin firm, supple, and youthful!
3. Vitamins A (beta carotene C, and E, the vitamins in aloe vera, are excellent antioxidants. They protect the skin from free radicals brought by UV rays and other toxins.
Also, aloe helps produce a protein called meallothionein. This protein literally eats up free radicals that contact your skin. Amazing, right?
4. Aloe is a gentle cleanser that help fight acne and infection. Aloe can deep-clean your pores by unclogging dirt. It also has microbial and antiseptic properties that protect your skin from bacteria, leaving your skin squeaky clean and blemish-free!
This botanical miracle-worker also contains other sugar molecules that promote cell production and reduce redness and inflammation.
And because our skin naturally sheds off dead skin cells, aloe helps replace it with new, healthy cells. Aloe’s rejuvenating power keeps you looking fresh and glowing!
Besides being a kitchen staple, can you believe that rosemary also helps keep your skin healthy and young-looking?
A face serum that harnesses the power of this botanical has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and microbial properties.
Rosemary has antibiotic and antiseptic properties that can prevent the bacteria that causes acne as well as reducing dark spots from riddling your skin, leaving you with a bright, clear, and even complexion!
Additionally, rosemary contains carnosic acid and ursolic acid, which are both antioxidants. These acids heal and prevent further damage from photoaging by scavenging free radicals from UV rays.
Ursolic acid protects and restores your skin’s collagen by preventing enzymes from attacking it. It helps tighten loose and saggy skin and smooth out defined wrinkles. Simply put: it’s a powerful substance that hates the visible signs of aging as much as you do!
Much like rosemary, sage is not only packed with delicious flavor and aroma but also with age-defying compounds and antioxidants.
Sage contains more than 160 chemical compounds called polyphenols that function as antioxidants that fight off UV rays and environmental toxins.
A study published in the National Library of Medicine showed that sage could smooth out facial wrinkles by defending the skin from UV rays.
UV rays cause photoaging by killing dermal fibroblasts, the cells that produce collagen. When collagen production is compromised, the outermost layer of the skin loses its structure and thins out, making your skin dehydrated and wrinkly.
Antioxidants in sage can prevent this damage by eating up the free radicals from these UV rays.
