What’s the difference between Skin Serum and Skin Cream?
Usually, the difference between serum and cream is in texture and purpose.
Anti-aging Skin Serum:
Anti-aging serums are often lighter and more liquid than skin creams. They are designed to get anti-aging skin care ingredients, like CoQ10, peptides, vitamins and retinol into your skin quickly (their small molecules allow them to be absorbed more easily than the larger molecules in a lotion). Most of the time, they are designed to work with the addition of a wrinkle cream or skin moisturizer.
When should an Anti-aging Skin Serum be applied?
Skin serums are fast absorbing and lightweight. They should be applied first in an extended moisturizing routine. Although they are usually water-based, serums are not meant to hydrate the skin, they are meant to nourish it, by transferring chemically based anti-aging materials into the skin.
Antixodants like vitamin C help protect against possible sun damage and fight the damaging free radicals responsible for much of what we perceive as skin aging, including fine lines.
Anti-inflammatories, like aloe vera neutralize redness and prevent inflammatory cell damage.
Hydrators such as glycerin strengthen the skin’s barrier and help build strong cell membranes. These ingredients protect against dryness and fine lines by replenishing naturally occurring skin lipids, improving moisture retention and protecting skin from the environment.
At night, your routine would center on regeneration of your skin cells, as well as hydration. Night is logical for skin cellular repair and regeneration, because this is what happens to your body when you sleep – repair and regeneration. The products you use just help older skin boost these activities, which slow down considerably as one age.
However, a serious anti-aging skin care regimen can work as a non-surgical face-lift, with all the benefits that entails. The cost is much less than a face lift and there is no pain, discomfort or recovery time involved.
You can very well incorporate an anti-aging repair serum in to your lives for better skin. Prodroxatone Serum is such effective product in its category as it has Aloe-Vera, glycerin and vitamin C. It will repair and regenerate your skin at the cellular level. It is lightweight and non-oily, so it is easy to apply and quickly gets absorbed into your skin.
