Serums More Powerful Than Creams For Younger Looking Skin

Serums or creams?

Excellent beauty and skin care question.

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.

Says who? New York City dermatologist, David J. Goldberg. He explains that 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.

Now, that's good to know. Of course, that is just one dermatologist's view, and we're sure that other professionals might disagree. But for the moment, let's assume that Dr. Goldberg is correct, that serums are more powerful than creams when it comes to beautiful skin.

Okay, now what type of serum do we choose? Another very smart beauty question.

Here are 3 excellent serums for younger-looking skin, with 3 different, but all very high-tech formulas:

1. Skin Biology Super CP Serum( 1 oz, $24.95, at Skin Biology).
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.

2. Exuviance Vespera Bionic Serum(1 oz, $60, at NeoStrata).
Exuviance's Vespera Bionic Serum is another potent skin treatment formulated with (AHA) Mandelic Acid, and (PHAs) Lactobionic Acid and Gluconolactone
Multi-Antioxidant protection from Pro-Vitamins A, C and E. And also blended with a marine botanical to help smooth stressed skin. Clinical studies indicate that after 6 weeks of use:
212% improvement in clarity
89% of users claimed a significant improvement in skin texture and smoothness.

3. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Intensive Serum(1 oz, $19.99, at drugstores).
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.
