Serums are a great way to take care of your skin, and if you know which one is best for your skin-type and how often to use it, you will be able to maintain healthy, glowing skin all on your own. GloTherapeutics has several serums, and the following two are perfect for renewing skin and getting that glow.
This serum is all about mild exfoliation and smoothing skin to improve your skin’s texture and tone. Blended with hydroxy acids and anti-bacterial agents, this serum provides oil control and rids dead skin from the surface.
A little more about Hydroxy Acids: They are best known for their skin rejuvenating properties. They are used in chemical peels that are given in the dermatologists office because they work as exfoliants to remove dead skin and allow the re-growth of new, healthy skin – which is what this serum will do for you. They are also known to help skin wrinkles and signs of aging.
Salicylic Acid causes dead skin cells to shed, which opens up pores, releasing bacteria from clogged pores. Like hydroxy acids, salicylic acid also facilitates the growth of new skin, and softens the skin. It is also well-known for it’s acne treating properties.
Retinol accelerates cell renewal and by helping stimulate cell growth, they help fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
gloRenew Serum also has Hydrolyzed Yeast Protein, which conditions while controlling oil, as well as anti-oxidant extracts and D-panthenol, which is an anti-inflammatory that also hydrates and repairs the skin.
If you are looking for a treatment that revives and smoothes skin, this should be your go-to serum.
