Choosing Serums

By: Angela Medalla Yeo

Are you still searching for the elusive fountain of youth? I believe that staying youthful has a lot to do with the right diet, exercise, inner peace, mental mindset and skincare. For the skincare aspect, we really have to ask ourselves what we can do to take care of our skin. There are many products out there that can help us with that, such as facial cleansers, toners, serums, moisturizers, and sunscreens.

Let’s focus on the serums. Serums are applied before the moisturizer to target specific skin needs. Serums are infused with anti-oxidants and vitamins which help target skin problems faster than just using a moisturizer. There are serums for many skin concerns such as anti-aging, skin brightening, pore tightening, blemish reducing and skin firming. Skin care brands have different technologies in addressing these skin concerns; you just need to find the best one that suits you.

Here are some key ingredients usually found in serums to address different skin concerns:

  • Vitamin C: anti-oxidant, repairs skin, and produces collagen.
  • Glycolic acid: clears acne and has exfoliating properties.
  • Hyaluronic acid: hydrates the skin.
  • Vitamin A: reduces wrinkles and protects skin from UV rays.
  • Vitamin B3: moisturizes and reduces dark spots.
  • Vitamin E: anti-oxidant and hydrates skin.
  • Vitamin K: improves blood circulation and blood clotting. It lightens dark circles.

Find a serum that fits your skin needs and incorporate it into your nighttime skincare routine. The simple step of applying a serum will make a huge difference in improving your skin condition and will give you a more youthful glow.
