MissRo here! In the land of skin care, there are women who prefer using only a couple of products. Whereas in places like Japan, they have a very specific cleansing process, especially at night and can use several products. My regimen is the same morning and night. I use a cleanser, eye cream, and day cream with SPF and then at night I cleanse, use my eye cream, and then put on night cream. It’s been that way for a while.
I have, every now and again, used a serum, but I’m so used to my three product regimen, that I never really stick to using it. When I was checking out Dr. Dima’s Galactic Glove serum, I was quite surprised that they suggested you put it on after their SPF day cream. I don’t mind layering at night to give my skin the treament it needs while I sleep, but not too keen on it during the day. Regardless, I gave it a try.
I wore it a couple of days without makeup and a couple of days with makeup. For me the biggest test was putting on makeup and see how it lasted throughout the day. It honestly had the same effect as those primers you use before putting makeup on. At least this serum actually benefits your skin, while the primers are usually an extra layer of nothing.
The key ingredients in this product are ceramides, vitamin E and vitamin F. Ceramides are lipids that rebuild your skin barrier and form a hydrating seal over the skin to prevent moisture-loss and play a key role in maintaining the firmness of skin. Vitamin E is a powerful natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and provides skin protection from environmental pollution, stress, and photo aging. Vitamin F is an essential fatty acid that is not naturally produced by the body, but is vital for healthy skin.
The overall benefits of this product is increased skin radiance, vibrancy, and hydration. It will help clear pores and prevent less acne breakouts. It will also decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and we can never get enough of that. Finally, it will provide a fabulous base for your makeup application.
Now, I’m not going to lie, this product is slightly pricey, but all serums are because of the quality of their ingredients. However, a little goes a long way and at the end of the day, it’s about investing in you, so you look good and feel good too.
What is your cleansing regimen like? Is it the same for day and night? Are you currently using a serum, if so which one?
