Kolkata: Monsoons are all about nostalgia, binging on deep fried snacks and enjoying a hot cuppa. However, a major flipside to this otherwise beautiful season is the havoc it wreaks on the skin. The humidity in the air causes the skin to become greasier which leads to acne, inflammations, or breakouts. So how can one combat these multitude of problems with just a face serum? Read on to find out how this beauty tonic could be the only solution you need to keep your skin healthy and radiant.
Skin-type friendly: A good Serum is suitable for all skin types. It can provide lightweight moisturization for oily skin, rejuvenation, and radiance for dull skin. It can also help reduce spots, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. For acne prone skin, serum with Salicylic Acid works well, whereas for dry skin Hyaluronic Acid is a better bet. Also, look out for Vitamin C, it is a super antioxidant ingredient that removes, spots, dullness, uneven skin tone and brightens the skin!
Hydration: Irrespective of the season, it is important to hydrate and nourish the skin. Considering that a serum is made up of smaller molecules that seep deeper into the skin than any average cream or moisturizer, it delivers an extremely high concentration of active ingredients. It also re-adjusts the excess sebum on the face to make the skin look healthy and well-moisturized.
Non-sticky formulation: Serums are water or emulsion-based formulations hence they have a light gel like or watery, non-sticky texture that absorbs quickly into the skin quenching the skin’s thirst for moisturization and leaving it with a fresh, dewy smooth finish.
Budget buy: A serum is a hero product that can eliminate the need for single purpose skincare products such as creams or moisturizers. Charmis Deep Radiance Face Serum is Dermatologist & Clinically tested to offer specific skin benefits of Hydrated Clear Radiance. It goes 15 layers deep into the skin with its potent ingredients of Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Salicylic Acid. Available for INR 210/-
Easy Application: A drop or two of this beauty elixir will provide a much-needed nourishment and prep your skin for monsoons. Use your fingertips to gently apply the serum to your face and neck and then lightly tap, pat, and smoothen it out and voila you’re done!
Let the expert serum work hard to take care of your skin while you sit back and enjoy the monsoons.
Dr. Aparna Santhanam, Dermatologist & Skin Expert to ITC Charmis, says, “Monsoons bring with them a host of skincare problems right from skin oiliness to acne, rosacea and pore inflammations. It is important to adapt your skincare routine to suit the season and opt for a beauty solution that is made with efficacious, light-weight formulations to help hydrate and nourish the skin. I recommend the use of a face serum that comprises essential skincare ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Salicylic Acid that hydrate and exfoliate without making the skin oily. An added benefit of Vitamin C will serve as a powerful antioxidant that will help reduce dullness, spots and uneven skin tone, thereby giving you an inherently radiant skin.”
