Anti-Oxidant Day Serum
It’s the morning and you’ve just finished the first 2 steps in your skincare routine. You skin is clean and toned and feels fresh and hydrated. The next step in your routine is a serum. Why, you may ask, should you use a serum and not just move on to a moisturizer with an SPF and literally call it a day?
Serums are a concentrated powerhouse of active ingredients. Moisturizers may have some actives, but its main function is to add moisture to the skin and keep it there. The serum/treatment stage is where you can apply products that specifically target any concerns you may have. Serums can be packed with ingredients that help prevent and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of brightness in the skin by lightening dark spots that occur as we age from sun damage, and also ingredients that can firm and tighten the skin while minimizing the appearance of pores. It’s even possible to apply multiple serums in very thin layers with each having a specific function. By applying after your wash and toning phase, the active ingredients can easily penetrate the upper layers of your skin so you can get the most benefit from them.
Why then, if you have relatively normal skin with minimum skin issues, should you bother? Well, as the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. And quite literally, an ounce of Hammer Soap’s Anti-Oxidant Day Serum IS the prevention you need.
Hammer Soaps Anti-Oxidant Day Serum is the first defense against the environmental stress your skin encounters on a daily basis. This stress, cause by free radicals and pollution, causes the skin cells to breakdown prematurely contributing to the first signs of aging skin. Anti-oxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and CoQ10 can fight that oxidation. Natural plant ingredients such as Aloe Vera and a variety of Tea Extracts provide a base of delivery for the powerful anti-oxidants to protect and nourish the skin. Powerful hydrators like Hyaluronic Acid and vegetable based Propanediol allow this serum to be worn alone or followed by a moisturizer if you need the extra hydration. It also glides on smoothly and absorbs quickly.
Directions: Using the dropper, apply small dots of serum all over face, then gently, with a light touch blend into skin. Take care not to pull or rub your skin.
