You’ve heard all the hype about serums and their claims to transform your skin. Yet, you are skeptical and just don’t get how a product that you apply to your skin can garner such rave results. I know it's mind blowing girrrll. I can honestly tell you that serums are the holy grail to the flawless beauty of celebrities, models, and the everyday woman you see that you envy her radiant skin. Okay,okay, enough already. Serums that make your skin flawless...ummm...I don't think so.
What is a serum and why does it provide these amazing results?
A serum simply put is a concentrated formula used to treat specific skin concerns and conditions. Its consistency is extremely light so that it can penetrate deep into the epidermis (the top layer of your skin.). It has just what your skin has been begging you for, but you’ve been too busy scrolling through Instagram to pay attention. (I know how it is…Ha!) Honestly speaking serums are a must have in your skincare regimen. You may be consistent in your skincare regimen, however you are not seeing the results you had hoped for. That forgotten secret sauce lies inside that serum bottle. Depending on what results you want to achieve will help you choose the right serum to amplify your skin health. Being an esthetician and looking from both perspective (the consumer and professional). I have tested so many serums both luxury and retail stores. I will share with you the top 5 I would recommend that are both cost efficient for anyone and provides the results the bottle proclaims.
