It only takes about a tenth of a second to make a first impression. All based on a look! Think about it, taking care of your face is extremely important. Even if you’re a clean-eating, health guru you are still exposed to environmental toxins and UV rays on a daily basis.
What does this mean? Our skin is suffering the consequences.
Hey! Before you panic maybe it is time to think of a solid skin-care routine with a face serum to protect your largest, and arguably most important organ; skin! Skin-care routines are more than a fad, a consistent skincare routine with the right products can save your precious skin suit.
All-natural face serums are a must-have in any skin-care routine. You may be asking what is face-serum? And why do I really need it? With so much conflicting and excessive skincare information out there it can be frustrating and overwhelming to know what skincare routine will work for you
Not to worry! This is a simple and condensed guide to a key product in your perfect skincare routine. According to Dr. Joshua Zeichner, a certified dermatologist, face serum is a product that is intended to provide high concentrations of specific nutrients and active ingredients to your skin.
Why Are All-Natural Ingredients Better?
- Synthetic chemicals can potentially harm the skin
- Natural ingredients absorb better than synthetic ingredients, which means you don’t need as much, (Saves money!)
- They are better for the environment!
- They work better because bodies recognize and absorb products easier that are from nature, therefore they are more bang for your buck! Despite sometimes more expensive prices.
Yeah sure, maybe the fountain of youth doesn’t exist, but serums are the next best thing. Here are 5 key benefits of Natural Face serums!
1. Reverses Oxidative Stress, Free Radical Damage, and Sun Damage
Anti-aging serums can reverse the damage that naturally comes from living life. This includes oxidative stress, sun damage, and free radical damage. This damage can come from the environment, air pollution, dirt, makeup, and bodily toxins.
Daily wear and tear of facial skin can cause premature aging, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Using a face serum can reverse the process of aging and the good news is that it’s never too late! Any serum with antioxidant boosting ingredients such as green tea and vitamin C; or hydrating ingredients such as aloe vera greatly reduces the appearance of aging.
2. Face Serum Contains No Fillers: Delivers Powerful Concentrated Doses of Nutrients
Face serums contain no filler ingredients and generally are water or oil-based. As opposed to cream-based like moisturizers. Because of this, they deliver concentrated nutrients to the skin that penetrate the skin barrier on a cellular level. This is not to say moisturizers aren’t important, they are! Face serums greatly enhance the hydrating effects of moisturizers and allow your skin to accept moisturizers better.
Using a natural face serum multiplies the benefits because the skin absorbs ingredients from nature. Ingredients such as vitamin c and natural-based antioxidants are more-easily absorbed than synthetic ingredients.
3. Brightens Complexion Reduces Redness/Rosacea, Anti-Inflammatory
Not only do serums reverse the aging process as well as reduce wrinkles and fine lines but they also have the ability to reverse other damages such as acne scars, hyperpigmentation, redness/rosacea, and overall inflammation.
Inflammation can occur from a plethora of sources such as foods, environment, and stress. It can also be painful and cause your facial skin to have excessive redness. Might as well tackle Inflammation at the root to avoid these symptoms!
Serums provide an overall, brighter complexion and an even skin tone, repairing the layers of skin with even the most stubborn scars and damage.
4. Limits Breakouts and Excess Oil Production
Face serums can control and heal acne-prone skin. How is this possible? One word: Hydration. A common misconception about over-oily and acne-prone skin is that the skin is too greasy and needs products to dry it out, excessive oil usually means that the skin is dehydrated! (funny how that works, huh?)
Face serums are great for this issue because they are highly hydrating. The more healthy-hydration your skin receives, the less oil your skin will need to produce. The skin creates excessive oil as a defense mechanism in desperate attempts to try to hydrate and quench skin that is begging to be moisturized, then this excessive oil clogs pores and causes; you guessed it, breakouts!
Natural Face serums deliver nutrient-packed hydration that your skin desperately needs!
5. Diminishes Acne Scars, and Hyperpigmentation
Acne is something that affects 80% of the population at some point in an individual’s life.
Acne has the tendency to leave scars especially if pimples aren’t taken care of properly; I’m talking about you pimple poppers! As well as those who have cystic acne (large acne nodules deep in the skin), these blemishes are more prone to acne scarring as well.
Acne scars are stubborn, and because most people will experience acne at some point in their life, acne scars are not uncommon. Luckily! A good serum can reduce even old acne scaring from those days of puberty that were SO fun, right?
