If you’re like most people, you’ve either been neglecting your daily skincare or feel like you need an advanced degree to understand which products you should use. Now is the time to upgrade your skin care regimen, and learning about the power of using a face serum is the first step to a more radiantly glowing look!

Learning about using a face serum

Serums deliver high concentrations of active ingredients to your skin. They contain larger amounts of active molecules that are able to penetrate your skin’s surface for optimum effectiveness. And due to their higher concentration, it typically takes a shorter amount of time to see visible results after you start using them. Serums are usually meant to treat skin issues like dullness, fine lines, and discoloration.

These clear, gel-based concentrations are typically applied after cleansing and toning but right before you finish your routine (by locking in hydration with a moisturizer). Because it’s lighter and delivers active ingredients to your skin quickly, it’s best to apply your serum after you’ve cleansed your skin. And moisturizing after you apply your serum helps seal it into your pores to maximize benefits.

What can serum do for you?

Everyday UV exposure can result in the appearance of dull, discolored, or darker skin. A serum can help leave skin clarified, revealing more radiant skin and a renewed complexion. It can help brighten the look of dull skin and stimulate cell renewal. And face serums play a vital role in helping plump skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. As you age, skin can gradually lose moisture and volume in areas under your eyes and cheekbones. Serums help replenish volume and retain moisture.

How to start using a face serum

The best serums deliver antioxidant benefits, botanical nourishment, and hydration. It’s always best to consult with a board-certified dermatologist before beginning any new skincare product and it can take up to six weeks for your skin to fully adjust and see benefits when adding a new product to your routine. The best way to use a serum is on your face and neck twice daily.

Choosing a superior serum

Antiaging properties in serums slow down the aging process by delivering essential antiaging ingredients to help your skin combat fine lines and wrinkles. RENUAdvanced™ Glow Serum uses the power of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in your skin, and helps absorb the negative impacts of your environment like a sponge.

Antioxidants in serums help protect your skin from redox imbalance caused by excess free radicals—unstable molecules that can damage your cells and cause premature aging. These antioxidant properties aid in the prevention of fine lines, and can help heal and repair skin. RENUAdvanced™ Glow Serum uses niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3) to aid in your cell’s performance by reducing inflammation, redness, and minimizing pore size.

Hydration ingredients in serums help infuse your skin with moisture and leave behind minimum emollient residue, which helps those with oily skin types while hydrating those with dry skin types. RENUAdvanced™ Glow Serum gets the power to even out skin tones through the powerful peptide, Nicotiana benthamiana, which has amino acids acting as building blocks of collagen and elastin, which help you keep a firmer, younger-looking appearance.

According to the National Library of Medicine, botanical extracts support the health, integrity, and texture of your skin. Plant extracts were often used as herbal treatments for various skin conditions before modern medicine. With antimicrobial, antiallergic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory functions, botanicals have even been found to help reduce scarring.

RENUAdvanced™ Glow Serum taps into the power of chamomile flower extract to soothe skin, reduce inflammation, and diminish signs of photodamage and improve skin texture and elasticity. This serum also uses annona cherimola fruit extract, which is high in antioxidants and flavonoids which help calm inflammation and re-energize your skin cells. Annona cherimola is also loaded with vitamin C, which helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and fine lines.

The bottom line

Although there are many different types of serums, getting the most from your serum starts with one that is clinically tested to help brighten your skin, boost hydration, and fight off the signs of aging. 

RENUAdvanced Glow Serum has earned Dermatest’s coveted 5-star clinically tested seal, its highest possible commendation for safety and efficacy. A four-week, independent clinical study showed that those who used Glow Serum twice per day saw a 13.6% improvement of visible skin wrinkles, 95% said their skin felt more moisturized, 80% said the serum provided long-lasting moisture to their skin, and many saw a visible improvement of spots after four weeks.
