Face Serums And How To Use Them

Serum or cream? That's a skin care choice that many women become confused about. Usually, women with oily skin, select the face serum, because it is lighter and won't clog pores. Those with dry skin, pick the face cream because it's heavier and provides moisturizing effects. But not always....

If you want to battle the signs of aging, like wrinkles and sagging skin, always opt for the serum.
According to New York City dermatologist, David J. Goldberg, the face serums are more potent. "Creams usually contain less than 10 percent of active ingredients; serums have up to 70 percent," he says. So, in other words, you are getting more bang for your buck, with a serum.

Here are 3 top-notch face serums:

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Supplement, 1 fl. oz, $60.
Good for all skin types. Bobbi brown's face serum is made with white birch extract to reduce the look of fine, dry lines. Grape extract is also featured in this serum, to brighten the complexion. After one month, you should see firmer skin with a smoother surface and a lovely glow.
Skin Biology Super CP Serum, 1 oz, $23.95.
Skin Biology's Super CP is a strong skin remodeling face serum made with its patented copper peptides. Just a few tiny drops smoothed over the face in the morning, followed by an hydroxy acid at night. Skin will tighten up and complexion will brighten after a few weeks of usage.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Intensive Serum, 1 oz, $19.99.
A highly concentrated formula with a good amount of Retinol combined with anti-oxidant multi vitamins. After four weeks, you should notice a healthier glow with smoother skin, and wrinkles appear less noticeable.
