The wind will chap your skin, winter is bad, and dry air is also not so good. It would seem that we are living in a world in which virtually any combination of weather is terrible for your skin. It is even worse when it comes to the face since unlike other parts of the body which are covered up, it is typically exposed to the elements. The face is thus more likely to experience the undesirable effects of aging such as wrinkles, dryness, and brown spots.

Enter anti aging serum for face, a product that has been proven to reverse and slow down the aging clock. Through special ingredients such as Witch Hazel Aloe Vera, and Jojoba Oil, they promote collagen production and convert resting stem cells that make it possible to regain the youthful, glowing look that will boost your confidence.

Difference between A Moisturizer and a Serum
Facial serums tend to be gel-like lighter products that are quickly absorbed into the skin. What makes them so much more effective is that they provide nutrients in addition to acting as moisturizers. However, it is important to note that the serum is not designed as a replacement for your daily moisturizing regimen. It is an optional product that may be applied to deal with issues such as acne, dark spots, and wrinkles among other issues.

As for moisturizers, they are products whose main function is hydration. Given that they will typically have large molecules, their penetration into the lower layers of the skin may be limited. As such, serums come in handy as their small molecules mean they have better penetration and are thus more effective in dealing with other issues other than moisturization.

When and How to Apply

Just like your moisturizers, you will get better effectiveness if you make them part of your daily skincare routine. You need to apply the serum after coming out of the bathroom in the morning, just before applying the moisturizer. Do the same before going to bed in the evening for best results. While serums are made mainly for the face, you can also apply some on the delicate skin of the neck every once in a while.

Important: Serums typically have higher concentrations of active ingredients and hence it is critical not to overdo the application. For best results, follow the instructions on the tub to the latter, since when it comes to these products a little will typically go a long way.

Precautions When Using the Serum

While facial serums will not have any effects for the regular user, they have several ingredients which if used incorrectly may irritate sensitive skin. If you are a first time user, you need to first test the product on the back of the hand before applying it to your face.

If you have any of the following signs, you may have an allergic reaction to the product:

1. Blistering
2. Burning or itching sensation
3. Raised bumps, inflammation, or rash

Many serums contain acid as an ingredient and hence you need to be cautious when combining the anti aging serum for face with other beauty products that have acids. Do your research as acid may not be readily apparent on the ingredients list. For instance, vitamin A which is found in retinol cream, as well as vitamin C a popular ingredient in wrinkle cream are acidic and for the person with sensitive skin, they may produce a bad reaction when combined with serums.

Conclusion

Anti aging serum for face is a godsend. Nonetheless, while their effectiveness is a given, it is important to manage expectations. Do not succumb to unrealistic expectations or promises that assert that you will look two decades younger. Even so, with consistent application, you should expect to see detectable changes within a week, and more significant progress within about three months.
