A round up of anti-aging and hydrating serums and toners I love right now
By Carla Snuggs
A great skin care serum is a must in your skincare regimen and once you find a great one that's right for your skin type, your skin will sing. I am also all about toners right now – they are great for my combination skin because I have t-zone oiliness. Toners provide that extra cleansing when you really need it and can shrink pores as well as restore and repair the surface of your skin. Right now, I am loving the following serums from the following brands.
Pura D'or Pro Organic
Pura d'or has a Pro Organic 20% Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C serum works great because it stimulates new cell growth thus reducingthe appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also increases Skin Elasticity and Firmness and more. This serum is USDA Organic and pesticide-free, no harmful chemicals, gluten free and hypo-allergenic, so it's great for finicky skin.
Le Mieux Brightening Serum
Minimize the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone, and dull, lackluster skin by applying just a few drops of Le Mieux Brightening Serum. This luxurious serum includes Hyaluronic Acid, Apple Fruit Water, Mulberry Leaf Extract, Sweet Almond Oil and Macadamia Seed Oil. It also visibly minimizes UV damage (dark spots) by 42-56%.
Manuka Doctor’s Gold Dust Firming Serum
Get glowing with Manuka Doctor’s Gold Dust Firming Serum. A powerful combination of manuka honey, bee venom and plant extracts work together to help diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, tame discoloration and revitalizing skin, instantly revealing a glowing complexion and photo-ready skin.
Nip + FAB
If you need to get rid of dead and dull skin. Reach for the Glycolic Fix Serum with 4% glycolic acid to retexture the skin's appearance. This highly effective formula contains powerful glycolic acid and works overnight to smooth the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles while improving skin texture. Designed with pore refining ingredient PoreAway, the size of pores are visibly reduced for a more refined, even looking complexion.
If you have dry, sensitive skin, try the new Dragon's Blood Fix Plumping Serum. This lightweight serum delivers an instant shot of moisture to dehydrated skin. Hyaluronic acid and delicate velvet flower blend together for an intensive hydrating effect that leaves skin feeling comforted and looking plumper with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles reduced. Also works great in the daytime providing a great base for makeup.
The holy grail of moisturizing serums, FULLFILL is a volumizing topical treatment that helps plump skin, mimicking results of an in-office treatment. FULLFILL is a hyaluronic acid topical wrinkle filler, clinically proven to build skin’s natural volume over time. Without needles, patches or ionic devices, FULLFILL reduces the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles in the most stubborn areas of the face.
Le Mieux Essence Toner
I like using Le Mieux Essence Toner before the Le Mieux Brightening Serum.This age-defying serum-infused toner contains bioactive peptides, 10 botanicals extracts, protective antioxidants and anti-aging minerals to help correct fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Marine algae and fruit extracts balance moisture levels and soothe, soften and replenish skin. Key Ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid, Beta Glucan, Brown Algae Extract and Green and White Teas.
emerginC Pomegranate Toner
Formulated with pomegranate and natural fruit acids, emerginC Pomegranate Toner works for all skin types but is especially ideal for sensitive skin. Its mild ingredients in this active toner work to gently remove dead skin cells, tone and brighten complexions.
Kensington Apothecary Rose Water Exfoliating Tonic
That tired, outer layer of skin needs to go and you’re too smart to scrub it with grit. Let Kensington Apothecary Rose Water Exfoliating Tonic, a quintet of fruit acids, reveal the fresh, smooth skin beneath. For gorgeous teens, their chic grandmothers and everyone in-between. Key ingredients include Rose Flower Water, Lemon Extract, Fig Extract, Orange Extract, Algae Extract.
