What does face serum do?
Serums work by seeping nourishing ingredients to the skin. However, what a specific face serum will do for your skin depends on the ingredients it contains. For example, if you’re looking for a face serum that can work towards both hydrating and exfoliating wonders for your skin, two ingredients you may want to keep an eye out for are hyaluronic acid (the hydrator) and an alpha hydroxy acid (the exfoliator).
Along with these two ingredients, Ameliorate’s transforming facial serum contains an LaH6 Skin Hydration Complex to instantly hydrate the skin and prevent dryness. Meanwhile, Bio Honey acids work to give a gentle but effective exfoliation and a ProRenew Complex™ stimulates those new, fresh skin cells to show off at the surface of the skin. What is a face serum?
