Serums

  

Skincare, Where to Start?

There are so many skincare products on the market today, and to add to the confusion, there are serums, lotions, creams and other potions.  So, how do you know where to start. At Mikel Kristi, we try to make this simple for you. Our serums are our powerhouse products for everything anti-aging.

What Are Lotions & Creams?

Lotions and Creams are typically thought of as moisturizers.  These can contain ingredients that help with anti-aging but because they are in a base of lotion or cream, these ingredients are less concentrated. Lotions and creams are made with humectants and emollients that are meant to lock water into the skin or attract water from the environment into the skin which can make the skin more supple.  However, more supple skin does not necessarily mean more youthful skin. More youthful skin functions optimally with natural exfoliation, natural moisture production and collagen restoration. 


What Are Serums?


Serums contain more concentrated doses of active ingredients. Serums may contain active ingredients for skin protection like the antioxidants Vitamin C or Vitamin B3.  They may contain hydrating actives like sodium hyaluronate, hyaluronic acid or prickly pear extract. Some may also have active ingredients that help to restore your collagen such as Retinaldehyde Vitamin A, Peptides and growth factors.  Skin brightening active ingredients like kojic acid and songyi are also important for evening skin tone. These types of serums can give you more results in less time.  
As with any kind of skincare product, these ingredients need to be able to absorb into the skin to deliver those amazing results.  Many product lines have amazing ingredients that just sit on the surface and don’t create the change that you are looking for. At Mikel Kristi, our cosmeceutical grade serums help improve your skin’s natural functions to reveal more youthful skin. Cosmeceuticals are formulated with special technology that allow for safe and effective penetration of active ingredients.  

How do you choose?  

At Mikel Kristi, we believe that your serums are the base of your skin care regime.  Choose your serum based on your needs. Do you need skin brightening, evening skin tone, help with collagen restoration, skin hydration or all of it?  Once you have your serums selected, then add on moisturizers if you feel like you need them. For order of application, apply thinner products like serums before thicker products like lotions or creams. With Mikel Kristi products, you can blend together any of our serums or moisturizers without losing the potency of the ingredients because of the stability of the formulations.

5 Ways To Amp Up Your Beauty From The Inside Out
5 Ways To Amp Up Your Beauty From The Inside Out

by Christy Hall March 24, 2020

We all know that beauty starts on the inside.  Let’s look at some ways to go beyond skin deep to get the results you desire. 

  1. Be kind to yourself:  Be conscious of your thoughts. Notice when you feel yourself going into a negative state. Because of our survival instincts, humans have a negativity bias built into our psyche. This was helpful back when we needed to remember not to eat a poisonous plant in the wild, or that a tiger lived in that particular cave. But in modern life it is used to ruminate on current dramas, past hurts, or future anxieties. See if you can notice when you go down your particular rabbit hole, and see if you can change your thoughts to kindness and gratitude. If not, just focus on the word STOP.

Skin Health & Well Aging Part 1: Skin Function

by Christy Hall March 09, 2020

Understanding how the skin functions as a whole will explain why some topical (on the skin) interventions work, and others don’t. The intent of any good skincare regimen should be on bringing the skin’s natural function back to optimum performance, much like it was back in your younger years. It is important NOT to just apply a topical “Band-Aid” on skin issues with moisturizers or organic oils. You need to get your skin back to a healthier state of functioning on all levels by feeding it the right nutrients.
