As humans we tend to take things for granted really easily. When we are young and able we aren’t aware of how lucky we are until we start aging. Similarly, most of us never paid attention to how youthful or luminous our skin was in our 20s because we were too busy agonizing over one or two zits that would pop up every now and then. However as we enter our 30s and the collagen in our skin begins to sag as we keep growing older, we notice fine lines and what could be called the beginning of wrinkles forming along our face which means that you’re now transitioning into another phase of your life.
The thing with fine lines or wrinkles is that you can’t exactly cover with makeup like you can a zit or uneven skin tone, in fact makeup actually ends pronouncing them even more. This is where anti-aging creams come in, while they may work on fine lines, they don’t bring back that youthful oomph. So after jumping from one product to the next, I discovered the Dermapeutics Hyaluronic LIFT serum.
For those of you who don’t know creams are normally moisturizing and heavy, typically made by mixing oil with water and they may or may not contain active ingredients to address specific skin concerns. Whereas Serums tend to be more liquid-like and are water based and are easily absorbed by the skin because of their lightweight.
Dermapeutics is a renowned brand known for its skincare line and is known for deriving its ingredients directly from the earth, so their formulas aren’t just 100% synthetics and chemical. Their Dermapeutics Hyaluronic LIFT serum is amongst their most popular products. According to them their serum “brings resilience and youthful contours creating a beautiful lift to your face and eyes. Hydrates, and smoothens fine lines and, “plumps out” wrinkles.”
You can normally buy it at retail stores; however I got mine online for around $22 for the 1oz. serum, which I personally found to be a bit costly but most serums are normally around this price range so I suppose it’s understandable. After cleansing my skin I would take a few drops of the serum and then apply it to my face and neck. The product itself isn’t too heavy which is a good sign for me.
My skin is dry and sensitive and I was hesitant before applying this serum given how prone my skin is to adverse reactions, instead I was pleasantly surprised. My skin started appearing fuller and youthful, the fine lines began to fade and I could visibly notice the fine lines around my eyes disappearing. After two weeks of continuous use, the results became more pronounced and I felt as though it took years off my face. Another added plus point is the fact that this serum is also moisturizing, something my dry skin warmly welcomed. My only complaint is the fact that it doesn’t last as long, an average bottle was finished in 5 weeks otherwise I loved everything else about the product.
