Whether male or female, no one likes looking in the mirror and seeing older-looking skin. Fortunately, there are products that anyone can use to increase moisture levels in the skin and give it a smoother, firmer texture and a more even tone. Face serums for men and women contain active ingredients that penetrate deeply into the skin, where they can do the most good, all while also providing lightweight moisturization, which all healthy skin requires.
Look for the Right Ingredients
Each face serum has its own individual formula that contains different active ingredients. Though healthier, more moisturized, younger-looking skin is always the goal, different active ingredients work in different ways. If you're interested in trying men's face serums, look for those that contain the following ingredients.
You probably already know what happens to metal that becomes oxidized: rust and decay. Oxidation can have the same type of adverse effect on the tissues of your body, including your skin. The antioxidant ingredients in 20-percent vitamin C + E ferulic acid serum help to build up collagen, which is the underlying structure of your skin. Collagen buildup can reduce wrinkles by making your skin firmer and smoother.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the active ingredients in face serums like Matrixyl 3000. It is a hydrating agent that attracts and holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. When your skin cells hold more water, it makes them plump up, sort of like a balloon. When your skin is plump and well hydrated, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Learn To Use Face Serums
Even the best serums for a man won't do you much good if you don't apply them correctly. Because the ingredients are so concentrated, you don't have to use very much, just two to three drops twice a day. Smooth them over your skin using your fingertips, and be sure your skin is clean first.
