Face oils, cleansers, spot treatments, anti-aging collections—skincare can be a confusing industry with too many options and not enough clarity. Depending on your skin issues, finding the perfect combination of products to heal and nourish your skin is stressful. Lucky for you, some of the highest performing elements for a range of skin issues, from signs of aging to stubborn acne, can be found in face serums.

If you’re new to researching skincare, you probably need to know what a face serum does. Face serums provide nourishing hydration and essential nutrients in a lightweight formula. Usually applied as overnight treatments, high-quality face serums ensure lasting skin health and radiance, for a variety of skin issues. From chronic dryness to signs of aging, serums can be the holy grail of skincare routines. That is if they have the necessary ingredients.

Ingredients for Damage & Signs of Aging

Sun exposure, scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles are all signs of aging that can be difficult to treat without safe yet potent ingredients. Here are a few elements you should look for in a hydrating serum to repair aging and damaged skin.

  • Camellia sinensis is green tea leaf extract, a potent antioxidant which protects your skin, scalp, and hair from oxidative stress. This damage usually comes from sun exposure and reactions to certain toxins, some of which are found in sunscreens and other common skincare products. Green tea polyphenols have natural soothing and anti-inflammatory properties that prevent enzymes from breaking down your body’s natural collagen production.
  • Vegetable glycerin is derived from plant seed oils like palm, coconut, or soy. Glycerin maintains the skin’s water balance and promotes matriculation. Hydration is key to repairing damaged skin, encouraging new cell growth and preventing dryness.
  • Morindacitrifolia is extracted from noni fruit, found in the Pacific Rim. It’s a goldmine of powerful antioxidants and traditionally known for its wound-healing abilities.
  • Algin, or seaweed, contains a multitude of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that nourish and protect skin.

Seeing a pattern here? Potent, naturally sourced antioxidants are the basis for successful face serums that fight and treat damaged skin. Other fantastic ingredients include vitamins C and A, glucosamine, and edelweiss flower extract. Look for these in an antioxidant serum or booster and implement it into your nighttime skincare routine.

Pro Skincare Tip: The best order for nighttime skincare is cleanser, face oil, and serum. Add in a spot treatment if you find blemishes that need extra attention.

Recover what your skin has lost over time from sun damage and aging. Introducing a face serum into your skincare routine can transform your skin with consistent application and naturally potent ingredients.
