What are Serums and Elixirs and why you should use one?
If you are like me, adding another product to my daily routine doesn’t sound appealing. However after doing some research on serums and elixirs, I found that these products aid and rapidly repair your skin’s troubles such as discolorations, age spots, wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture, and more.
No matter your skin concerns, there’s a serum you can add to your daily beauty regimen to see real results, and quick. But who should use serums? How do you use them? When will you see a difference in your skin? This article addresses these questions and then offers some serum choices that you can use.
Who should use serums?
Serums should be used by women looking to target specific skin concerns, such as age spots, fine lines, expression lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles.
What are serums?
Serums have a lightweight texture and a high concentration of ingredients, allowing high levels of nutrients and vitamins to be optimally absorbed into the epidermal (skin) layers. They also have targeted action to address specific skin problems.
Where are serums applied?
Serums should be used on your face, jaw line, décolletage (upper chest), and neck under your moisturizer. Do not use serums near the eye area unless they are specifically targeted for eyes.
When, and how often, do I use a serum?
After cleansing and before moisturizing. Use your serum day and night unless directions specify differently.
Why should I use a serum?
Adding serums to your skin care regimen makes sense if you want quick results in changing your skin. They deliver high concentrations of anti-aging and repair technology to your skin. They are like a secret weapon and the results are dramatic.
When will I see results?
In younger skin, you should see results within a natural cell turnover cycle, which is about 28-30 days. For ages 40-50, skin cells turn around about every 30-45 days. For more mature skin, it may take as long as 60 days to notice a visible change.
Picking a serum
How to pick a serum depends on your skin concerns, your skin’s level of dryness, and age. I’m sure there are many on the market that are good, but since I am an Avon enthusiast and representative, I put together a list of serums that we offer and their advantages.
Anew Reversalist Renewal Serum – targets ages 35 – 50
Benefits – tightens skin, improves discolorations, and contains 5x more skin repair chemistry than the night cream. With 5x more activinol technology which activates our skin’s ability to repair itself, it also works well on reversing skin damage, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Anew Ultimate 7S Elixer – targets ages 45 – 60
Benefits – boosts youth proteins with 2x more pro sirtuin technology than the night cream, tightens sagging skin, and reverses wrinkles. It contains pro-sirtuin peptides that lengthen the life span of the skin cell resulting in younger looking skin.
Anew Platinum Serum – targets age 60+
Benefits – Contains concentrated Paxillium technology that boosts paxillin production – a key protein that helps cells retain their youthful shape. It lifts sagging skin especially on the jawline and neck and reverses deep wrinkles.
NEW Anew Genics Treatment Concentrate – targets ages 40+ (available in campaign 16)
Benefits – contains twice the Youthgen technology than the popular Anew Genics Night Treatment cream. It is a lightweight formula that softens expression lines, improves skin discolorations and age spots, and boosts skin hydration up to 165%.
