A Guide for Choosing Your Skin Care Serum or Treatment

One of the most crucial steps in a skincare regime is the treatment product.  But if you shop just on Sephora’s website alone, there are almost five hundred treatment products alone.  That is a lot of product to sift through just to find the right one!

So how do you narrow down the playing field?  Firstly, one of the most frustrating things about using any new product is that it takes almost thirty days for your skin to regenerate itself, so you’re facing at least a month before you can see significant differences.

There are literally hundreds of “essential” ingredients that create these serums and treatments, but here is a quick rundown on the

Retinols
Retinol products are known for their anti-aging properties, especially when it comes to fine lines and wrinkles.  For a high-performance nighttime dose, try the Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Pads & Solution from Philosophy.

Vitamin C
This is the number one ingredient to look for if you are trying to address dullness, uneven skin tone, or hyperpigmentation in your complexion, like that found in two treatment products from Ole Henricksen, the Truth Serum® Vitamin C Anti-Aging Collagen Booster and the Pure Truth™ Vitamin C Youth Activating Oil

AHA / Alpha Hydroxy Acids
The Lemon Strip Flash Peel from Ole Henriksen contains a powerful blend of AHA ingredients including lactic, glycolic, and multi-fruit acids to help dissolve dry skin and smooth out the surface of your skin.

Hyaluronic Acid
This amazing ingredient actually helps your skin better retain its own moisture for deeper hydration, such as can be found with Skin Inc. Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

When combined with a good cleanser and effective exfoliation, these treatments can take your skin to a new level of gorgeous!
