What is a serum and how does it work?

Posted by bodyverde on January 24, 2013

Is there any truth to the promise behind the anti-aging skin serum?

Many exist on the market today, claiming to reduce wrinkles, smooth lines and firm the skin. But what are serums, and how are they different from moisturizers and other anti-aging skincare products?

Simply put, a serum is a concentrated, water-based skincare product with high concentrations of key ingredients. Serums are able to penetrate deeply into the skin to deliver these key ingredients. In contrast, a moisturizer creates a protective barrier near the surface of the skin.

Skin serums are meant to complement, not replace, a regular moisturizer. To give skin that added hydration, apply the serum, wait five minutes to allow skin to absorb it, and then apply moisturizer. Those with oily skin may want to wear a serum alone.

Because skin serums are so concentrated, a drop or two goes a long way, and results should be visible within weeks. To be sure, they’re much less expensive and invasive than chemical injections and spa treatments.

Our Wrinkle Free Perfection Serum is an all-natural option for those who want a gentle yet effective, all-natural anti-aging skin serum. Its plant and fruit extracts naturally smooth and lift fine lines and wrinkles on the face, near the eyes and on the neck, helping skin look brighter and more supple.

Another of our best sellers is an alternative to first-aid creams and works for a variety of cuts, scrapes, burns and bug bites. In fact, we call Miracle Skin Renew Serum “Mom’s kisses in a bottle” for its ability to help skin heal itself faster.
