Say yes to more hero serums

Last week I shared the knowledge about vitamin A as a serum and now it’s time to look at some other hero serums that were launched recently.

Skincare is always evolving and thankfully we have the best ingredients and technology at our disposal. Here are four serums suited to a range of skin types but most importantly they are all full of great ingredients and research!

Ultimate anti age

Image the Max Stem Cell Serum is a skin changing day and night serum that rejuvenates your skin in a totally new dimension using apple stem cells. Technology of nutripeptides work together to create the appearance of plump, firm skin while stem cell technology supports natural defense mechanisms and promotes cell health and growth. It significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines due to facial expressions, wrinkles and other related signs of aging.

It is easily absorbed into the skin and I love it for night time as I feel it really replenishes and works at a cellular level to treat fine lines, fade sun damage, increase hydration, control acne and stimulate cellular turnover for more youthful, smoother looking skin. It is a great all rounder and suitable even for sensitised skin.

Budget bestie

Mineral 89 Probiotic Fractions is the latest innovation from Vichy, inspired by the best-selling Mineral 89 Serum. This high potency formula is Vichy’s one stop solution for stressed skin, containing the following three key ingredients:

• Probiotic Fractions which improve the skin's barrier function while also stimulating the skin's natural defences.

• Vichy Volcanic Water, rich in 15 minerals, significantly increases the skin barrier repairing efficacy.

• Four per cent niacinamide is known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory effects on skin.

Formulated without fragrance, alcohol and silicons, this product is clinically proven to regenerate six signs of skin health, including radiance, fine lines, skin texture and plumpness.

Fab for over 50

Dermatological skincare experts Eucerin have created the perfect solution to maintain a youthful look and regain skin’s core strength.

The new Hyaluron-Filler + Elasticity 3D Serum is a powerful treatment against all the main signs of ageing. The first anti-age formula on the market to contain thiamidol and the first serum in the Eucerin Hyaluron Filler + Elasticity range, it combines highly effective active ingredients to help reduce age spots, plump the skin to reduce deeper wrinkles and improve overall elasticity.

The three magic ingredients are:

• Thiamidol, Eucerin’s patented ingredient, acts as a powerful weapon against age spots. The brand’s key ingredient for fighting hyperpigmentation, thiamidol acts directly in the skin cells to target melanin, which is what creates the darker pigment in the skin.

• Long and short-chained hyaluronic acid effectively plumps up the skin from within to smooth even the deepest of wrinkles and keep skin hydrated

• Arctiin improves the skin’s firmness and strength by supporting the renewal of collagen within the skin’s cells. First visible results can be seen with just two weeks of regular use, and when put to the test.

Great all rounder

Green Angel’s Pro-Collagen Serum with Hyaluronic Spheres is a brand new oil-based serum. Formulated to help hydrate, nourish and rejuvenate your skin for a youthful glow. The serum is suitable for all ages and skin types; whether you’re trying to prevent aging or slow it down, Green Angel Pro-Collagen Serum with Hyaluronic Spheres is a must-have.

The serum was created using the finest ingredients. It contains hyaluronic spheres, seaweed oil, and sea lavender as they work in conjunction with your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid, collagen, and cell production. Enjoy the scents and benefits of pure essential oils as the serum soaks gently into your skin.

Apply it before your SPF and after your moisturiser to help keep your skin supple. It’s recommended to use it in your morning and night routine if you have dry skin. For oily skin, give the morning a miss as night time application is ideal. If you have combination skin, pat the serum into dry areas in the morning and apply it as normal in the evening.
