The Benefits of using a Pre-Serum
I can’t help but envy women who keep their skin looking young and fresh well into their 40’s and 50’s (like my mom, who’s always mistaken for my sister when we are together! Granted, she is 50 years old, but looks like she’s in her 30s) So what is their trick? Preventive skin care. I’m not going to lie, I’m always tempted to leave my makeup on at night if I’m too tired, or to skip anti-aging treatments because I don’t see any signs of wrinkles (yet), but these women are proof that taking care of your skin early on is the best way to ensure that your skin stays looking young and fresh for years to come.
Finding the right product, or products, for my daily beauty routine can be exhausting, and it can even be overwhelming when brands try to sell you a series of expensive creams, tonics, and gels that can do some serious damage on your wallet, and may not even have the desired effects for your skin. That’s exactly the reason why I only talk about those products that have actually worked for me in the past.
About a year ago, I found one of my favorite treatments that I’ve been using regularly, The Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. I remember seeing this product everywhere online when It first came out. At the time, I was looking for a good anti-aging product to add to my routine. I did some my research to make sure this was the right product for me, then I went to a department store and got a sample to test it out. I was really happy with the results so I went back to the store a week later and bought a full-sized bottle! Ultimune is a pre-serum that leaves my skin looking smooth, more resilient and makes lines less noticeable. This particular treatment is formulated specifically to defend against day-to-day damage from environmental stressors and It works with your skincare to boost the benefits of your current regimen, no matter your concerns.
Living in the city and traveling constantly can really take a toll on my skin. My skin suffers the most during fashion month because I don’t get much sleep, or forget to stay hydrated, but the key to bringing my skin back to life after a long and hectic day is using products that make my skin look fresh and brighter, like this pre-serum. The best part about Ultimune is that it’s quick and easy to use. Just apply a couple pumps, twice a day, after cleansing and before your serum/moisturizer, morning and night. Have you tried this product yet? If so, let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
