Coffee and a great book.
There is no denying some things are just better in pairs; and when it comes to skin care there is no better duo than an anti-ageing serum and a dermal roller.
Unlike creams or lotions, serums are highly-concentrated products rich in active ingredients – typically Vitamin A, B and C – and containing fewer ‘filler’ ingredients. Serums have been clinically proven to reduce pigmentation and fine lines, firm the skin, maximise skin health and ultimately slow down the ageing process. This means they are highly effective at delivering a knock-out punch to some of your skin’s greatest nemeses including dryness, fine lines, acne scarring, pigmentation and large pores.
Serums work best when added to your existing skin care routine, which may already include cleansing and moisturising. This one extra step is most definitely worth the effort, especially if you are over the age of 40 and starting to notice the tell-tale signs of ageing skin. For best results, apply your serum immediately after cleansing to warm, slightly moist skin. You can then proceed with moisturiser, sunscreen and finally make-up as you usually would.
Dermal rollers are an easy to use, at-home skin microneedling tool. Their heads contain hundreds of tiny 0.25mm pin heads which, when run gently over the face create microscopic holes or channels in the skin. The benefits of this action are two-fold: firstly, the microneedling stimulates the skin’s healing process, encouraging plumping, tightening and thickening; secondly, the channels allow skin care products, like serums, to penetrate more deeply into the skin.
Dermal rollers have been found to improve the effectiveness of serums and moisturisers by up to 40% because they enable active ingredients in skin care products to reach beyond the superficial layers of the skin and deep into where they can do the most good. When added to the natural Collagen and Elastin boosting effects of dermal rolling, this can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles.
If you’re interested in adding this dynamic age-fighting duo to your skincare regime, you can find the Rejuvaderm Home Infusion Roller and a selection of high-quality serums in the Skinovation Cosmetic Clinic or in our online store. We’d be happy to recommend the best products for you.
