The demand for facial serums has been heating up as the battle for the best anti-aging regimens intensifies. The amount of choices can be overwhelming. Many decide on an anti-aging serum based on trend, but to make an informed decision you must understand the function of serums and the skin.

Because of their lightweight feel, serums are great for summer. During this time of the year, heavy lotions can suffocate skin. Serums make it easy to maintain an anti-aging routine without feeling weighed down. But don’t be confused, serums have substance and can supply enough hydration to substitute as moisturizers.

The main purpose of ultra concentrated vitamin serums is to rejuvenate aging skin. The results can be a dramatic reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, rough skin texture or dark spots. Serums also enhance that youthful glow everyone desires.

Like the body, the skin needs a range of vitamins to function properly. Even with a well balanced, healthy diet, the body does not always get what it needs. Supplements help our bodies maintain proper nutrition. Similarly the skin may need a separate product for vital nutrients.

3f5a1e4ee4703df82568c37745eee908The Epionce Intense Defense Serum has a unique approach amid an ocean of products on the market. Its development is the result of years of skin research by Epionce founder, Dr. Carl Thornfeldt. He observed many serums had a tendency leave the skin red and irritated. Even if anti-aging results were achieved, he knew there was a better way to deliver essential vitamins without aggravating the skin.

His research uncovered that skin needs multiple vitamins to function properly, not one magic bullet ingredient or vitamin. He developed the Epionce Intense Defense Serum to incorporate all five major vitamins – A, B, C, D and E in a form the skin cells can properly use. This was the first serum on the market to achieve this. Because of the presence of all five vitamins in the Epionce Intense Defense Serum, it has been called the first complete multivitamin for the skin.

By using powerful yet gentle botanicals— like Spanish needle, Melon and Shiitake mushroom—Intense Defense Serum delivers a balanced dose of each major vitamin. Additional ingredients like Flax and Palm oil soothe and help prevent redness. The goal is to achieve anti-aging results without overloading the skin with high concentrations of any one vitamin, which can lead to irritation, according to Dr. Thornfeldt.

Clinical studies give support to product claims, and are a good way to do your research. Epionce conducted studies on patients using Epionce Intense Defense Serum versus top physician-strength serums on the market. Superior results were reported by dermatologist investigators, including the reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, rough texture and size of pores. This was without irritation that can force some to stop using a product.

As the industry introduces more anti-aging serums, continue to look for products backed by clinical proof and formulated to give you real results. These simple-to-use serums help fill in gaps in your skin care and make a great addition to any anti-aging regimen.
