The ultimate Vitamin C serum replacement : Elixir Face Serum by Just Herbs
Always wanted to use a Vitamin C serum but scared of slathering chemicals on your face ? The multi-tasking Elixir face serum is a synergistic blend of treasured Indian herbs and acts as an excellent botanical replacement for a traditional chemically derived Vitamin C serum. This face serum nourishes and restores a natural glow and youthfulness to tired, ageing and pigmented skin. Plant polyphenols, carotenoids and flavonoids present in the Elixir face serum, prevent and reverse free-radical and DNA damage on the skin. This face serum also blocks the inflammatory changes which happen during the skin ageing process.
Cold pressed oils of Rosehip, Wheatgerm, Safflower and Moringa seeds are natural sources of Vitamins A, C and E which sets this face serum apart from commonly available Vitamin C face serurms. Also, extracts of Indian Senna present in this face serum are a botanical alternative to Hyaluronic Acid (for fine-line filling and intense moisturization) used in chemically-derived Vitamin C serums.
Liquorice root and Nagkesar form a perfect harmony adding lightening, brightening and skin nourishing properties to this serum.
Why the Elixir Face Serum is better than a regular vitamin C serum ?
The Elixir Face Serum is a lightweight, non-greasy product that isn’t a lotion or a cream and is devoid of the potentially harsh chemicals typically found in a vitamin C serum. Always apply it to your skin after cleansing but before applying the moisturizer. Use a few drops during the day or before bed time. You can also apply it before applying Just Herbs creams or gels to boost their effect.
Always use Elixir at night. However, if you are using Kimsukadi oil as well, then use Elixir during the day.
A face serum is a light weight non-greasy product that contains active ingredients in a very fluid formula to allow for deep action and fast absorption. A serum is usually applied on the skin after cleansing but before moisturizing.
A face serum infuses powerful ingredients directly into the skin in the quickest way possible. It also contains brightening and nourishing properties that help in reducing pigmentation, fine lines and dark circles. Additionally, it acts as an anti-ageing product that enhances the efficacy of your moisturizer and night cream.
A face serum is able to do this because it is made up of molecules that are smaller than those of a cream. As a result, it is able to penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. Creams, unlike serums, usually rely on ingredient delivery mechanisms that are not able to penetrate very deep into the skin. Serums, on the other hand, are supposed to do what creams cannot.
However, most vitamin c serums fall short of this claim as they may contain silicones. While these vitamin c serums provide a smoothing effect on the skin, all they do is prime your skin without allowing the inner layers to absorb the ingredients as they are supposed to. Owing to the ‘barrier effect’ caused by the silicone, they also trap any sebum, dirt and bacteria that may already be on the skin,thus potentially leading to a breakout or allergic reactions.
This is why one must look for serums that are blends of natural oils with light sensory qualities and fast absorbency instead of a traditional vitamin c serum. This will help active ingredients penetrate deeply into the skin. A good serum isn’t sticky or greasy on the skin.It has the finest concentration compared to other products of the same range and allows layering of another product on top.
As a result of these unique qualities, serums are suited for all skin types. Even if you are using a medicated product for acne, you can use a serum either before or after the pimple treatment. You can use serums all year round to hydrate your face for healthy skin. A serum should be used each time one wants a proficient skin care treatment. You can vary the serum depending on the seasons or specific needs – like targeting dry skin in the winter and boosting glowing skin in the summer.
Suitable for all ages:
You can never be too young to use a face serum. Add it to your skincare regime to give your skin that flawless feel. We have clients aged 25 and above using our serum. A few drops is all you need as the concentration of the active ingredients is high enough to deliver the benefits.
A face serum cannot be replaced with your sun protection gel or cream. The best time to use the serum would be at bedtime followed by your night cream or gel. This will allow the serum to act on your skin while it rests. However,using serums during the day and layering it up with a good quality broad spectrum sunscreen is also recommended in some cases. While serums do tend to be on the pricier side, do remember the numerous benefits that they offer. Nourish your skin and watch it glow.
NOTE: Always use ‘Gotukola Indian Ginseng Rejuvenating Beauty Elixir Facial Serum’ during the day if you are using ‘Kimsukadi Glow boosting Facial Oil‘ as well.
