When looking at images of beauty throughout the years, it seems - almost cyclically - that what is considered beautiful is continuously changing. From wanting to be as matte as can be, to wanting to recapture a youthful glow, today's standards are entirely different from a few years ago. In today's society, there is a massive surge in not just living the natural beauty life, but a resurgence in capturing or recapturing a youthful, natural glow.
While there are many ways to achieve that look with makeup and other products, using products like this to create an artificial glow, products like this can potentially create other skin concerns by clogging pores or causing an adverse reaction. Instead of using these products, there is a more straightforward way to work to achieve and recapture the natural radiance of your skin. And that method is through derma rolling.
Now not just derma rolling, but through the use of a derma roller plus a serum created by Petunia Skincare called the Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Now, don't freak out. The word acid in this product name can seem like it is something that could be potentially dangerous or harmful for your skin, but that is not the case. This non-comedogenic serum works by penetrating deep through the layers of your skin and works to activate collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion. The secret is its sponge-like properties, holding up to 1000 times its weight in water, and pulling moisture from the environment and onto the surface of your skin, making this the most effective moisturizing agent on the market. As we age, the hyaluronic acid content in our body decreases. Our formulation stimulates the skin's production of hyaluronic acid.
This serum truly works wonders. Formulated with high-quality ingredients such as vegan hyaluronic acid, vitamin c, and ferulic acid, our serum also contains 98% natural and 72% organic ingredients and made in the USA at our FDA approved facility. Another unique aspect of our process is that we make our serum in small batches to guarantee freshness and potency. And if that isn't already amazing, this product is also vegan and cruelty-free.
If you aren't sure if this is a serum for you, here are some common skin problems that our serum actively works to lessen:
Skin that is dull, lifeless, dry and dehydrated
Aging skin with loss of elasticity and collagen
Wrinkles, crow's feet and fine lines
Uneven skin tone complexion and rough skin texture
Dark circles and spider veins span.
With this serum, our suggestion for high anti-aging results is to use it in conjunction with the anti-aging skin clearing serum. While the first serum mentioned focuses its efforts on brightening and smoothening, this potent serum - while aiding in those efforts - also works to help fade signs of aging and blemishes, and give your skin a clean and smooth complexion. This bottle acts as an anti-aging serum and acne fighting treatment in one to create a two-in-one product. Just a few drops of our Anti Aging Skin Clearing Serum will instantly be absorbed by the skin to penetrate and improve skins appearance quickly swiftly and effectively.
Now that you understand all of the particulars about these products, you may be wondering - "how do I use them?" While it can be used alone, to achieve optimal results, this serum should be used in tandem with a derma roller.
For those unfamiliar with the technique or what a derma roller is, here is a summary. This technique has shifted from being one only available at a dermatologists office to now being a process that anyone can learn and implement. A derma roller is a skincare device that creates micro pathways in the skin to allow for serums and treatments to be better soaked up by the skin. When using a derma roller for this purpose, our suggestion is to use a 1.0 mm needle size, as the smaller needles are a perfect way to allow your products to absorb and penetrate the skin - and this size is ideal for anti-aging results.
If you are a beginner at this technique, there are a few things you need to keep in mind about how to best execute this technique. You want to make sure you aren't just haphazardly rolling around your face and that you have a solid game plan, so you aren't just steamrolling all over your face. Start by going horizontally over the forehead, cheeks, and chin areas in a back and forth motion.
Next, begin to roll vertically on the forehead slowly up and down (while doing any of these steps, keep your pain threshold in mind and don't do more than what your skin can handle, while this technique is helpful, it is crucial as with all methods to maintain a level of safety). Finally, finish the process by working the roller diagonally across the face, going one direction not moving back and forth like in the other steps.
*A quick tip: Always start in the center and move outwards on the face - except on the nose area, where we suggest working downward exclusively. *
Now that you understand the derma rolling process, here is how we suggest utilizing the tool with the serums. The way that we layer serums is by consistency, so we always use the thinnest consistency first and the thickest last. So when you are utilizing this serum, you would derma roll first, then apply the anti-aging skin clearing serum followed by the hyaluronic acid serum. Another important tip is that it's best to derma roll at night since the skin will be red, and sleeping helps aid the skin to heal a lot faster too.
