5 ways to use the best youth serum

6

Have you tried Bioelements NEW Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum? This all-in-one serum has clinical-strength retinol, peptides, CoQ10 and fermented pumpkin that empower the skin to resist the signs of aging.

Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum can be used on its own or with other products to tackle every single one of your skin concerns. See our five different way to use this one of a kind formula:

 

1) For fine lines and wrinkles

 

Want youthful skin at 40, 50, 60 and beyond? This formula was made to tackle all your aging concerns, especially fine lines and wrinkles. All of its active ingredients uniquely target fine lines and wrinkles for a complete transformation.

Retinol, one of our favorite anti-aging ingredients, is clinically proven to give a 38% reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in over 95% of test subjects (2). Plus, this formula uses microencapsulation technology to ensure the formula works over time without irritating the skin.

Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum also contains a peptide blend that visibly and significantly reduces wrinkle appearance after just 5 minutes (3). Fermented pumpkin, vitamin E + CoenzymeQ10, watermelon rind, lentil fruit and apple extracts all contribute to a less lined, more youthful appearance.

This serum is designed to work with other Bioelements formulas, so you can use it with other anti-aging products, like Plump Start and Sleepwear, to banish fine lines and wrinkles. You can layer it with other anti-agers or alternate products one in the morning and one in the evening.

 

2) To brighten skin

Want a glowing complexion? This anti-aging serum banishes dull skin tone when used regularly. Dull skin can often feel rough, due to a buildup of dead skin cells, milia and poor circulation. Skin often becomes dull due to dehydrating and aging. Hyperpigmentation can also contribute to a dull, uneven complexion.

The fermented pumpkin in Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum stimulates cell turnover, which helps remove dead skin cells and excess pigment while hydrating skin. Clinical testing shows capability of increasing cell renewal by 25% (1). Watermelon rind, lentil fruit and apple extracts also help reduce dryness and flakiness to brighten your complexion.

Is hyperpigmentation your concern? Use LightPlex GigaWatt Dark Spot Corrector alongside Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum to zero in on dark spots. You can apply the dark spot corrector before or after our serum, just make sure to follow with a broad spectrum sunscreen if applying in the morning.

 

3) For problem pores

The best youth serum doesn’t just tackle wrinkles – it tackles large pores too. Big pores are a common problem because they can occur both in oily and aging skin types. Even if you are in your 20s, Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum can be used to diminish the appearance of pores. Plus, this formula is designed for all ages and all skin types, whether you’re looking for preventative care or to turn back the clock.

Once again, the retinol helps provide long term benefits by healing and strengthening the skin to refine texture and pores. The fermented pumpkin enzyme is also a superstar ingredient when it comes to diminishing the appearance of large pores long term.

Are your pores congested? Excess oil and blackheads actually stretch the pore, so it’s crucial to keep pores clean if you want them to appear small. Use Kerafole 1-3 times a week before applying Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum for a complete purge of impurities. If you have very oily skin, you can also layer Oil Control Mattifier with this serum to help keep excess oil at bay.

 

4) To defend skin

Want to help your skin defend itself against common age signs? This serum contains vital antioxidants that naturally occur within your skin, but decrease as you age. These antioxidants help defend your skin’s natural protection shield and offset skin aging free radicals.

What are free radicals? Free radicals are highly unstable and reactive molecules that damage living cells. These can come from everyday pollution, stress, UV rays, poor diet, alcohol, tobacco, and other common stressors. These molecules damage your cells and tissues, leading to premature aging. It is essential to protect your skin against free radicals if you want to prevent age signs.

Antioxidants are skin’s superhero against free radical damage. Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum contains vitamin E + CoenzymeQ10 that helps protect needed sebum and barrier lipids to increase skin’s resistance to oxidative stress and damage.

Collagen also degrades over time, naturally and due to free radical damage. Antioxidants, like vitamin E, help prevent collagen degradation.

Need extra defense? Follow Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum with Plump Start and Remineralist Daily Moisture for a complete antioxidant blast and protection from skin aging pollution.

 

 

5) To smooth and firm skin

Have you noticed sagging or uneven skin as you age? Think of skin like a mattress that sags over time. The retinol in this serum works to make the mattress firm again, by helping connective tissues weave together and become denser:

Retinol is also clinically proven to reduce the appearance of roughness for a youthful complexion. The peptides in this formula work alongside the retinol and send messages to skin’s youth collagen to become stronger and firmer, and to fill in lines from beneath – like they do in young skin.

57% of people experience an immediate “tensing” effect as the peptides work to plump and smooth skin (3). Don’t worry if you don’t feel it though – the product is still working. Skin even appears smoother after 30 minutes in 67% of study participants (3).

If you want to plump skin up even further, layer Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum with Plump Start on your face and V-Neck Smoothing Creme on your neck and chest.

HI. I’m in my late 30’s and see quite a bit of aging in my face and neck over the past few years. Fine lines and deeper wrinkles, dryness, dull tones, some sagging. I blame stress….lol. Will this youth serum help repair already aging skin or is it more of a preventative measure?

    Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum is designed for all ages, so it’s for both those who want preventative care and anyone who wants to turn back the clock. It will absolutely target your skin’s signs of aging. This all-in-one serum uses a coalition of youth-advocating ingredients that rally together to brighten, hydrate, exfoliate, smooth roughness, improve the appearance of lines and pores, and target collagen for firmer, more elastic skin.

    Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum works on its own and with all other Bioelements anti-aging products, like CreateFirm and Plump Start. Simply cleanse and tone your skin and then layer Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum, CreateFirm, and Plump Start in any order. You can also alternate products from day to day depending on your preferences.
