An Easy Way to Step Up Any Anti-Aging Skin Care Regimen
By Melanie Rud Chadwick |
Let’s Just Get to the Point:
For anyone looking for a multitasking anti-aging serum, this lightweight formula delivers both instant and long-term benefits.
Key Ingredients: Peptides, aloe vera and algae
If You Want to Know More:
We’ll cut right to the chase: If you’re not already using a serum, you most definitely should be. Lighter than a moisturizer, but with higher concentrations of active ingredients, it’s a powerhouse product that can truly make a difference in any skin care routine. And if your goal is anti-aging, the Epicuren Pro Collagen + Serum Amplifier ($82) is a one-stop-serum shop.
Admittedly, no anti-aging product is going to work overnight. But this serum has an instant gratification factor that I, as a not-so patient person, truly appreciated. An algae and polysacharride blend tightens skin, which I noticed within minutes of putting it on. It’s not an overly taut feeling, just a nice firm, texture and some added plumpness, too. There are also three different peptides in the formula (the building blocks of the proteins essential for healthy, youthful skin), as well as ingredients that boost skin cells’ energy and metabolism. It’s pleasingly lightweight, absorbs quickly and layers nicely under moisturizer. Those with sensitive skin (yours truly included) will also like that it’s not fragranced. You may not be able to turn back time, but this serum can help keep your skin looking younger than it is.
