Today, many consider serums to be the most effective products in skincare. Companies, like RG Advanced Skincare have created serums for skin care that offer numerous benefits to your skin. But, how do they work? Just what exactly is a serum compared to other formulations of skin care products? Is it applied in the same way as other skin care products, such as moisturizers?

What is a Serum?

Serums are highly concentrated skin care products. The are designed to deliver an effective dose of the active ingredients to the deepest layers of the skin. In some cases down to where the stem cells reside.

RG Advanced Skincare's, "Concentrated Restorative Serum", and "Beauty Boost Peptide Complex" work at both the cellular level and the surface level. At the cellular level they stimulate cell proliferation and increase collagen synthesis. On the surface, they reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve elasticity, hydration and softness.

How Do Serums Work?

Many skin care products are designed to only treat the top layer of your skin. For instance, a typical moisturizer has larger molecules, so it is not able to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. However, a serum is created with much smaller molecules, giving it the ability to be absorbed much deeper than just the top layer of skin.

RG Advanced Skincare uses a double layered encapsulation technology to deliver the active ingredients. We wrap the ingredients in a very small phospholipid molecule that is easily absorbed to the lowest layers of the dermis, delivering the active ingredients to where they are needed.

How to Use a Serum?

It is no secret that serums cost far more than “standard” skin care products. But, because these products are highly concentrated, you will not need to use nearly as much as you would of other products. Comparing it once again to the moisturizing product, where you would probably use a significantly sized dollop and possibly reload several times, you will need nothing more than a small “dot” the size of pea when applying a serum.
