One Beauty Product You Should Be Using
One of the most important lessons in beauty that we learn as we age…is that we age. We know by experience that our face doesn’t hold the glamour of youth forever.
But this isn’t a bad thing. Aging is a beautiful process that doesn’t get the credit it deserves. Our faces reflect a life well lived. We see it in the miles we’ve logged, the places we’ve been and the people we’ve loved.
The silent killer of a youthful face isn’t aging, but the exposed pollutants from everyday activities like dirt, ultraviolet radiation, sweat, and smog. We rely on cover-up to fix dark marks, but we can preserve cleaner and healthier skin now by working from the inside out.
Taking care of facial skin should first and foremost focus on self-care over vanity. As important as face wash and moisturizer is to your routines, you should also be using a facial serum.
The Benefits of Serum
Serum is a water or oil based liquid that you apply onto the face before you set your moisturizer. While a moisturizer covers the face, your skin absorbs the serum and its nutrients that maintain elasticity, moisture, and softness. There are many options, so use one that matches your needs. Serum is on the expensive side of beauty products, but it’s well worth the price, because it’s so beneficial for your skin. Jose Maran’s Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment is a moderately priced oil and water based serum that feels lightweight and leaves your skin feeling smoother. Since serums are more expensive, apply serums like Josie Maran’s day or night. You don’t have to purchase two separate serums to get the benefits.
However, if you do want a separate serum that can focus on either night or day repair and effects, try Kiehl’s most popular items, their Daily Defense and Nightly Repair serums. It can feel a little heavy, so a couple drops per use is fine.
Serum and Self-Care
Invest in a daily face serum to rejuvenate the elements of your face that naturally keep you looking healthier (and of course, younger). There’s less to cover up in the long run if you use a serum daily. Look out for products that your facial skin type prefers, whether it be combination, oily or dry.
There is no way to fight aging, but we live in a world that thinks we should try. Remember to focus on what risks we face in pollutants, literally, and what we can control to preserve our natural beauty. What’s behind the scenes is more important, so focus on the preservation of natural beauty with a serum, and you’ll have a higher confidence and healthier glow.
