Meet The Super Serum Your Skin Needs Amidst These Stressful, Anxious Times
Just like our health, our skin needs powerful protection from constant stressors. This new serum by Kiehl's promises to have our skin's back through it all!
You may not know it, but your skin is going through a lot. Yes, you're wearing less makeup, yes, you've given your skin a breather during the quarantine, but did you know that stress levels, anxiety, food intake, and other outside stressors affect the health of our skin?
I personally have been experiencing what you can call 'quarantine acne'—caused by hormonal imbalance due to late nights, stress, and less-than-stellar eating habits. But don't you worry—this is perfectly normal, and you may not know it but a lot of others may be experiencing the very same thing too!
Now for the good part: there is something you can do about it! And no, we're not talking about using a full-coverage concealer when you have to do Zoom calls at home. By supplementing a good diet and proper sleep hygiene with the right skincare product, you will be on your way to strengthening not just your immune system, but your skin as well!
Meet the Kiehl's Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum!
You know it's super when it's already called that. The newest addition to Kiehl's powerful lineup of serums, this latest formula boasts of being able to strengthen skin resilience, to help it bounce back from the stress and abuse its been through!
And because we cannot be bothered by double digit step skincare routines these days (hello jam-packed home schedules, heat, and humidity), finding a formula that does the job in one easy application cuts it. This ultra-lightweight formula, fast-absorbing serum contains the trendy (and for good reason) ingredient Hyaluronic acid, responsible for maintaining optimal moisture levels to boost skin hydration and visibly refine skin's suppleness! Hello anti-aging!
Apart from that, it also contains and Adaptogenic Herbal Complex—a proprietary blend of adaptogens such as Red Ginseng Root, Holy Basil, and Schisandra Berry, which are commonly used in Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Ayurvedic medicine. All these ingredients work in perfect harmony to defend skin from stressors, and to boost its radiance, which to be honest is all we're really after!
Our skin has a natural protective layer that gets damaged by some of the factors mentioned earlier, including sun exposure (do you work beside a window?), pollution, stress, lack of sleep (hello Netflix binge-watching), diet (quarantine junk food diet), and temperature. Because of this, our skin ages rapidly, and much more earlier that it should, hence leading to fine lines, sallow skin, and even discoloration or age spots.
Now we know no one wants any of that, so taking action by adopting a protective skincare regimen is key. After four weeks of use, you will already see visible changes, with suppleness and plumpness restored, improved skin texture, boosted radiance, and stronger skin resilience. Add to that, faded fine lines for glowing, youthful skin amidst the quarantine and beyond!
You can apply a few drops within the day or before bed, to complement your existing skincare routine. Ideally, you wash and cleanse your face, apply toner, then apply this Super Serum before layering on other products, for best results!
