Serums and Essences To Choose
If you want to add an anti-aging face serum to your skincare routine, there are some types that you should look out for above all others.
1. Tea Elixir Skin Resilience Activating Serum
This little bottle is the definition of “dynamite comes in small packages.” Featuring exclusive APT (Adaptive Phytocompound Tea) Technology, this serum works against the signs of aging by strengthening the skin barrier and visibly boosting the skin’s resilience, leaving it prepared to bounce back. This serum contains niacinamide, which refines the appearance of pores. It also contains 5kDA hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrates the skin and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. Among many other ingredients, it also contains jojoba oil and ceramide III, which prevents dehydration by strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier.
2. Crème Ancienne White Truffle Face Serum
If you like your skincare to feel truly luxurious and want something that is a treat to apply, then Crème Ancienne White Truffle Face Serum is the perfect choice. This concentrated formula elevates skin quality by using several patent ingredients and processes. The bioactives in white truffle are used to their best advantage by the enzymatic extraction process. Just two weeks into using this serum, you’ll see an evident change in skin condition: visibly smoothed expression lines, defined contours, and luminous radiance.
This is an excellent choice if you’re looking for something that will fight lines and lift and firm the skin around your jaw and eyes. The ingredients in this serum are second to none: meadowfoam seed oil to smooth and soften from inside the epidermis; monks cress extract to even out your skin tone and keep your face looking radiant; and saccharomyces cerevisiae for lifting, firming, and re-defining the contours that should be there.
3. Black Tea Firming Peptides Serum
Peptides are something you want to see in a serum like this. These little amino acids are some of the things (polypeptide chains) that make up collagen. As you undoubtedly know, collagen is your best friend in the anti-aging game. Adding more peptides to the mix stimulates natural collagen production to keep your skin firm, bouncy, and fresh-looking for longer. We look for peptides before any other ingredient!
This black tea-based serum will help sculpt your face for a more youthful look. This serum’s fast penetrating texture means it gets into the skin quickly to start working. Both the peptides )density and elasticity peptides) we mentioned earlier, and honeysuckle extract helps tighten the skin and restore its elasticity. A combination of black tea extract, black tea ferment, blackberry leaf extract, and lychee seed extract provides antioxidant protection and helps improve elasticity.
4. Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Serum
Multivitamins aren’t just good for the inside of your body; they’re good for the outside, too! Treat your skin to a serum focused on skin nutrition that contains essential vitamins C, E & B5, minerals, antioxidants & hydration to brighten up tired-looking skin and keep it glowing with health. We love this particular serum so much because it is clinically tested and proven to improve four key skin factors: signs of tiredness, hydration, brightness, and smoothness. This is not just a cumulative effect but can also be seen instantly!
Indulge in this product and let 480,000 plus microbubbles burst all over your skin, delivering their delicious, nutritious vitamins and antioxidants. Beta-carotene delivers vitamin A to keep free radicals at bay. Jicama root juice revitalizes and hydrates skin. Chicory root juice moisturizes and protects. A combination of vitamins C, E, and B5, lemon and orange extracts, and minerals revitalize and smooth out the skin.
Choosing any of these serums will add an anti-aging punch to your daily skincare routine. Use your serums and essences consistently, and there’s no doubt that you’ll see results. Remember to drink water and apply your SPF daily — your skin can use all the help it can get.
