Not saying that you have to ditch everything else and only use serums - if you are budget conscious then one product that will give you the quickest result is Serum!

Serum use high performing ingredients that are not always cheap to manufacture. Doesn't it sound complicated to micro-encapsulate something? You should expect the most of your serums. Within this blog we will discuss what they all do.

1) Vitamin A (Retinol)

No other cosmetic ingredients has been scientifically proven to be more effective for improving the signs of aging than Vitamin A. FDA will allow one other to legally call itself anti-aging and it's SPF.

Vitamin A reverses the signs of ageing, it rebuilds collagen, repairs sun damage- simply put it changes the DNA of your skin cells! At Groom, we have a shelf full of these skin goodies:

Cosmedix Serum 16 - perfect if you have sensitive skin - smells divine and works a treat with no skin peeling.

Cosmedix Serum 24 ( Elite range, only sold in Physicians clinics in USA - we are honoured to be able to stock this)- After finishing Serum 16 and still want to push your skin cells further - another step up with more Retinol - again visible results with no peeling!

Ultraceuticals Skin Perfecting Serum - Mild (0.15%), Regular (0.35%) and Concentrate(0.5%)

Affordable way to jump on the Retinol wagon - start with mild if you have sensitive skin and ease into it slowly starting with alternate nights.

Skin Medica Retinol Complex - Yup the potent ones- goes up to 1% - we find that this makes your skin peel a bit more!

2) Vitamin B (Niacinamide)

When used on the skin it has shown to stimulate the dermis and in turn increases the fatty content of the cells along with aiding in the retention of water. As it is shown to enhance barrier function of the epidermis it has had good results with acne sufferers by protecting against bacterial attack.

Ultraceuticals B2 Serum - Utilises the power of Vitamin B5 and B3, combining with Hyaluronic Acid which can hold up to 1000 times it's own weight in water.

3) Vitamin C

We need Vitamin C internally and externally as we cannot make it ourselves! Vitamin C is water soluble and sometimes need Vitamin E (oil soluble) to work well together. Newer formulas now includes oil-based Vitamin C.

It promotes collagen synthesis, helps to prevent premature skin ageing, provides environmental protection. It even firms and smoothes!

Skin Medica Vitamin C and E Complex- You know it works as it tingles upon application.

Ultraceuticlas Vitamin C delivers an antioxidant punch with some elastin and peptides thrown in!
