When speaking of skincare, serums come to mind as very important. Serums are mediums that can be used to get ingredients into the skin whereby creams cannot. One can introduce molecules into the skin that are smaller and go deeper into the skin and these are easier to put into a serum than a cream or lotion, which is often heavier and harder to get deeper into the skin's layers. Also serums are great for just about any skin type, from mature or dry skin to acneic and oily skin. I personally love serums and find them ideal for many different forms of skincare treatment that I like to use.
Recently I was sent Merlot Skincare Sunrise Serum to try out. I reviewed a few items of theirs years ago when I first started my blog and I liked the line. Merlot Skincare bases their line on the grape and Resveratrol. Sunrise Serum is a serum for use during the daytime and contains peptides, which are for anti-aging. The peptides help boost hydration and diminish the visual signs of aging. The high tech peptides, Palymitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 and Resveratrol work gently on the skin to help with fine lines and wrinkles, they even out the skin tone, they hydrate the skin and they firm the skin. Resveratrol comes from natural grape seed extracts and is an antioxidant, so it helps keep skin from being attacked by free radicals, which ages skin faster. It also helps keeps the skin from being attacked by pollution.
To use: apply the serum after cleansing skin, before primer and before sunscreen in the morning. Make sure to apply sunscreen after using or the work of the serum will do absolutely nothing for the skin. The sun's rays attack the skin and damage it, thus causing fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and lackluster skin. It is very important to use at least a broad spectrum SPF30 daily, even when raining and during the winter.
I found this serum to be a nice, light serum that works well with the skin and absorbs quickly. I used it in the morning, as directed and with sunscreen. Since I don't have any fine lines or wrinkles yet, I cannot say I noticed any difference there but I do feel that my skin is slightly firmer after use for two months.
Until Next Time~
