Free radical eliminating serum
If your skin is constantly exposed to environmental aggressors such as cigarettes smoke, smog, pollution and sunrays, you are putting your skin at the risk of premature aging, sun spots and hyperpigmentation. You need a serum that is full of antioxidant rich ingredients such as pomegranate and vitamin E. These antioxidant rich serums are skin repairing powerhouses and great for all skin types.
If of late your skin is lacking plumpness and seems to be sagging, then the collagen production in your skin has reduced. Collagen is an essential component to maintain a young-looking face. As we age, collagen production naturally slows down thus fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. To combat this issue, you need a serum that is enriched with Vitamin C and Retinol. It is also ideal for people who are looking to slow down the ageing process.
If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, then the anti-inflammatory serums are for you. Look for serums that are enriched with aloe vera or green tea to help soothe and calm the skin. These serums help cure sunburn, calm angry and irritated skin and reduce redness.
If you suffer from dry skin and want your normal moisturiser doesn’t suffice to hydrate your skin, then choose a hyaluronic acid rich serum. The acid helps in moisture retention and sinks deep into your skin to hydrate it from within. A pump of this will keep your skin looking plump and fresh all day.
If you are suffering from active acne, you need a serum that is full of salicylic acid. This acid efficiently clears up your pimples and acne breakouts. These serums help balance, hydrate and clear problematic areas to reveal clear, glowing and acne-free skin.
