What to Look for in an Anti-ageing Serum?

Anti-Ageing Serum serves its purposes to reduce or completely diminish any signs of ageing like wrinkles, fine lines, post menopausal dark spots, and other age related skin problems. There are several formulations for anti-ageing serums that fit into the different needs of people. Listed below are the things that should be considered in choosing the right Anti-Ageing Serum. 

1.  Effective Anti-ageing Ingredients

Retinol is a form of vitamin A that is a common component in anti-ageing serums. Retinoids or Retinol induce faster cell growth and regeneration that causes unhealthy skin to be replaced. Vitamin C is a great nourishing ingredient that serves as an antioxidant and helps brighten dark spots. Glycolic Acids go deep through layers of the skin, effectively exfoliating them anew. Hyaluronic Acid hydrates and moisturisers the dermal layers by locking in water inside the skin to prevent dryness. Niacinamide is another potent ingredient for Anti-Ageing Serums that alleviates any signs of skin irritation and helps give the skin its extra glow. A few of the ingredients that are now commonly excluded in Anti-Ageing serums are paraben, essential oil, Phthalates, sulphates and other chemicals that can irritate the skin. 

2. Sun Protection

Sun protection or UVA and UVB rays of the sun is one of the leading causes of skin damage. Without the layer of protective mask of sunscreen, a continuous destruction of cells hastens the production of wrinkles and dark spots. It is recommended to wear SunScreen that is formulated with an SPF 30 to help deflect any rays of the sun that can damage the skin. 

3. Skin Type

Choosing the right type of anti-ageing serum according to skin type is very significant to increase effectiveness and avoid any skin irritation. Anti-ageing serums are not created equal, and that is why knowing the concentrations and ingredients must first be consulted by dermatologists. Certain anti-ageing serums are guaranteed to be allergy-free and dermatologist-tested, making them suitable for people with sensitive skin. For highly wrinkled skins, higher concentrations of ingredients are needed to achieve its desired results; some formulas are too mild and don’t deliver results.

How Often Should We Use Anti-ageing Serum?

For neutral and mild anti-ageing serums, it is generally directed for use twice a day, in the morning and before sleep. When using a serum that is higher in concentration, it is recommended to use it every other day or even once a week, and then gradually increase the frequency of application as the skin adjusts to it. Some anti-ageing products are best recommended for use at night, when the skin is at most active and reacts with the formula more effectively when asleep. Anti-ageing serums are formulated to provide a protective layer to the skin to fight free radicals, pollutants during the day. 

How We Should Apply the Anti-ageing Serum to Skin?

It is a general rule to apply serum as the first layer after the skin has been thoroughly cleansed, then dried. An amount depending on the product is placed on the hand, then rubbed with both hands to activate its ingredients. It is then gently massaged evenly on the face and neck, mostly in the areas that are heavily wrinkled and damaged. These serums are designed to disperse immediately into the skin. Serums are followed by moisturisers or any other products that don’t counteract with serums. Some anti-ageing serums are recommended to be layered with sunscreen during the day to decrease skin sensitivity and increase effectiveness. 

What is the Difference between Anti-ageing Serums and Wrinkle Creams?

Serum has higher concentrations of ingredients, compact in a lighter texture in comparison with wrinkle creams. Active ingredients are the main focus for serums that effectively penetrate through the layers of the skin more. As opposed with wrinkle creams, serums readily absorb through the skin and do not have a greasy feel upon application. Wrinkle creams mainly serve the purpose of hydrating and moisturising the skin that can be sometimes lacking for more serious skin problems. Yes, wrinkle creams can be used after anti-ageing serums to help hydrate the skin even more, preventing any over exfoliation done for higher concentrations of anti-ageing serums.
