Kourtney Kardashian's Facialist Swears By These Anti-Aging Serums
I’ll give it to you straight: No amount of silk pillowcases or the best anti-aging products will transform your skin overnight. However, with some patience and consistency, the best anti-aging serums are one of the most effective non-invasive treatments for minimizing signs of aging.
Unlike traditional creams and moisturizers, serums are concentrated formulas designed to deeply penetrate the skin—making anti-aging serums the foundation of any great skincare routine for mature complexions. “These serums often contain active ingredients to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, pore size, and more,” explains dermatologist Dr. Amy Lewis. “They often aim to promote collagen production, reverse DNA damage, provide antioxidant and anti-glycation protection, increase the effects of estrogen in skin, and/or aid in skin hydration.”
Photozyme’s DNA Youth Recovery serum not only works to combat fine lines and wrinkles but also reverse stubborn UV spots from years of excess sun exposure. “It contains arms repair enzymes along with a potent combination of vitamin C, vitamin E, and ferulic acid to provide antioxidant protection, promote collagen synthesis, and brighten the complexion,” says Dr. Lewis. According to the brand’s testing, users may expect to see as much as 70 percent fewer UV spots after applying this product twice daily for up to 12 weeks. Furthermore, several studies show the repair enzymes in this formula are 93 percent more effective at protecting the skin from UV rays than sunscreen alone.
