Problem Skin? Discover Cosmeceutical Serums
14 Nov, 2014
Skincare and professional skin treatments are now able to target specific skin conditions on a deeper level using cosmeceutical serums. The molecules in a serum are smaller than those in a moisturiser, which means they can deposit ingredients deeper into the skin.
Serums enable a concentrated delivery of highly active specific ingredients in a super lightweight formula. Unlike moisturisers which are formulated to keep the skin hydrated by placing a protective barrier between it and the outside. Serums are formulated to penetrate deeply into the skin to deliver key ingredients.
With serums you can cover concerns such as the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, redness and acne etc.
Another vital step in solving your skin concerns is finding the right skin care and
facial treatments. These specific facials target the skins conditions to penetrate the product deeper into the skin and are more concentrated than over the counter serums.
During the facial treatments at Claire Francoise, serums are always used and recommended for optimum results. Some skin condition ingredients to look for when choosing a serum:
- Aging and fine lines
- Retinol, L-ascorbic acid and peptides for cell rejuvenation.

For some of the market leaders in active serums look at the range of products stocked at Claire Francoise. They stock serums for everybody, even those looking for gluten free, paraben free, vegan and not tested on animals.
Serums generally are more expensive due to the high levels of active ingredients added at an optimal dosage being a higher value per ml. However, not all serums are created equal. You should seek out your skin care professional at Claire Francoise for guidance and what will work best for your skin and at home regime.
