Derms Agree: This Is The One Serum You Need To Be Using For Fine Lines & Wrinkles.

When it comes to good skincare, there are a few standard practices that experts say you should follow in order to get the best results: cleanse, moisturize — and don’t forget to include a powerful and effective serum in your regimen. Derms Agree: This Is The One Serum You Need To Be Using For Fine Lines & Wrinkles.

First, some facts about what serums are and what they are not — because every skincare product or procedure has its pros and limitations. “Serums are light skincare products that can be applied after cleansing and before moisturizing to deliver high concentrations of active ingredients,” Dr. King says. “Both serums and moisturizers contain hydrators (humectants) but moisturizers combine them with higher concentrations of emollients and occlusives to be moisturizing, while serums combine them with higher concentrations of active ingredients like antioxidants and anti-aging peptides. They are generally light and quickly absorbed, not oil-based— which differentiates them from facial oils.

Serums should be applied to clean skin to maximize absorption of the active ingredients. ”Serums can make a big difference in your skin, but it’s important to manage your expectations so that you aren’t breaking your budget and expecting unattainable results. “There will always be limitations to what topical products can accomplish,” Dr. King says. “To date, there aren't any topical products that can relax the muscles of facial expression as well as an injectable neuromodulator, for example, nor are there topicals that can add volume the way that injectable dermal fillers can.”Serums are sometimes overlooked in favor of creams and moisturizers, but they are considered to be unsung heroes among many skin experts because they deliver potent ingredients and pack a big punch in just a small amount. If your goal is to achieve smoother, more radiant-looking skin, here are the serums that NYC Dermatologist Dr. Hadley King says can make a different on fine lines and wrinkles.

Schaf Revitalizing Serum is “formulated to be an all-in-one multi-action serum, it brightens, hydrates, plumps and diminishes fine lines,” Dr. King says. “Vitamin C boosts brightness through its antioxidant properties, hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin, and peptides help stimulate collagen production to diminish fine lines.  And it's vegan and cruelty-free.  Apply once or twice daily after cleansing the skin before a moisturizer.”
