There are so many wonderful skincare products to choose from, innovation and research bring new ingredients and formulas allowing us to create a regime to target and treat our individual skin care concerns. However, this can bring new challenges, how do we navigate our way through, how can we be sure that we are investing in the right formulas for our skin?
Clear and uncomplicated information is essential, to know why and how to use each product means we can feel skin care confident.
In recent years, serums have become a staple in most of our routines, but do you know the difference between a serum and a moisturiser? What can a serum do that your moisturiser can’t? Serums are a potent concentrate of actives that penetrate deeper into your skin, skinSense uses Lamellar technology to encapsulate these powerful extracts preserving and releasing them in a controlled dose for optimum results. They are usually a light cream, oil or gel base which means that they are quickly absorbed leaving little or no residue. Choosing the correct serum for your skin type or concern may be confusing but consider exactly what is it you want to see visibly improved. If your skin is dry or dehydrated look for serums that contain Hyaluronic Acid or Glycerin, Vitamin C will brighten and promote collagen production or using a retinol serum stimulates cell turnover which will have an overall improvement in texture, lines wrinkles and problematic breakouts.
skinSense Revitalising Serum contains high levels of our signature ingredients Linefill™. This cold pressed sesame oil mimics the structure of your skin lipids, plumping, volumizing and redefining the facial contour that may be lost as a we age. Lines and wrinkles are less visible, contours are appear smoother and redefined. Powerful Hexylresorcinol works deep at cellular level to combat pigmentation, calming the overstimulation of melanocytes so your skin in visibly lighter and brighter. Abundant in powerful anti-oxidants to defend against free radicals and a complex of Glycerine and Hyaluronic Acid leaves skin hydrated.
Serums should be applied to dry skin after cleansing. Its generally best to apply your products according to texture/weight. Lighter creams and gels should go on first, followed by richer creams and oils which may prevent the absorption of your serum’s powerful actives.
With such high concentrates you should apply less serum than a moisturiser, 2 pumps for the face, 2 pumps for the neck and decolletete. Allow your serum to absorb for a few moments and then follow with your moisturiser of choice. Moisturisers are occlusive which means they create a protective barrier and should be applied last, locking in the actives in your serum, preventing the loss of essential moisture and defending from environmental stresses. The rich textures keep your skin nourished and supple with a satisfying feeling of hydration.
