Firming serum

Dermis layer, firming serum most immediate target

Deterioration of collagen is one of the major causes of skin aging process and ambition of firming serum skin care aims to attenuate this culprit. Starts as early as age 25, the skin aging process slowly and continuously causes several changes in appearance and characteristics of the skin. The following are among these changes:

  • Slower skin renewal (turnover of skin surface) result in slower wound healing, dermal repair and formation of fine lines
  • Damage to collagen and elastin network of fibers causes the skin to lose its strength and elasticity
  • Skin becomes drier as a result of decrease in the number of moisture holding glycosaminoglycans
  • Reduction in the number of blood vessels causes the skin to receive less oxygen and nutrients, leaving the skin dull and glowless
  • Reduction in subcutaneous fat render the skin looks less plump
  • stress and force of gravity also pulling at the skin and results in more sagging skin

Among all these changes occurring to an aging skin, Day Treatment, targets the deterioration of collagen and elastin fibers by using high concentration of L-ascorbic acid, the active form of vitamin C.

The effect of vitamin C on skin has been long revealed by medical science. Vitamin C in the form of L-ascorbic acid affects skin in two ways. First by neutralizing free radicals caused by sun exposure, smoking and stress, second by helping the collagen synthesis in skin cells. The net result is more firm resilient skin. Vitamin C in order to work requires to be in the form of L-Ascorbic acid. These criteria all met in Day Treatment, dermal repair complex, which is a growth-factor based serum for skin firming. In fact, Day Treatment contains is fortified with bioflavanoids to combat skin ‘s lipid peroxidation integrated into a firming serum with ascorbic acid in the most desirable form, ascorbyl phosphate. This serum works in synergy with night serum, a skin resurfacing serum which primarily points to wrinkles and facial lines.
