5 Things Your Serum Should Do

Serums are a no-filler solution for your everyday skin concerns. They have the highest concentration of active ingredients, sans prescription, which means results appear faster and more dramatically than what you'll see from cleansers and moisturizers.

That said, what should you actually look for in a serum? We've narrowed it down to the 5 most important features.

1. It should zap your acne and dryness.

Any serum worth its weight in salt should be formulated to correct sebum imbalance as this is the major component for excessively dry or blemished skin. If you like to keep it natural, as we do, keep an eye out for:

  • - Ingredients rich in Vitamin C—which increases collagen production, enhances the skin’s repair process and reduces inflammation—like evening primrose, rosehip, and sea buckthorn.
  • - Ingredients with Vitamin E—which combats dryness and dullness and protects cells from oxidative damage— like sea buckthorn and argan, also high in antioxidants.

2. It should provide some UV Protection + recover skin with UV damage

As mentioned above, sea buckthorn is truly an all-star ingredient, as well as carrot seed oil. Along with being excellent sources of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and antioxidants, sea buckthorn and carrot seed oil offer a natural shield to UV rays if used daily—and along with helichrysum, sandalwood, neroli, and geranium—addresses imbalances and inflammation or irritation that can be caused from overexposure to the sun. 

3. It should address signs of aging 

If your skin serum doesn't play a role in effective anti-aging, it's not doing its job. One essential oil superstar, pomegranate seed, is packed with omega 5, which can destroy free radicals and prevent signs of aging. It also contains gallic acid, which reduces fine lines and nourishes the skin, and ellagic acid which is a natural collagen booster. Even more, its moisturizing properties balance pH levels which means softer and smoother skin!

4. It should boost volume (think of a natural face-lift)

A needle isn't the only way to plump and lift your skin. It's only natural for mature skin to begin to lose moisture and volume, especially in delicate areas like under the eyes, the cheekbones, and around the mouth. Fortunately, this volume loss doesn't have to be permanent. Look for ingredients that stimulate natural collagen production, like evening primrose, which adds tone and firmness to mature skin and brightens dull or dry patches.

5. It should become a part of your ritual that you love

The day is full of obligations and tasks as it is long. Using your serum shouldn't feel like a chore. This is why we're so in love with Ageless Skin Serum from PRESTIDGE beauté Active Organics.
