If you are looking for a new super antioxidant serum to brighten the skin, then I suggest you check out brand new Skyn Iceland Icelandic Youth Serum. It uses an ingredient that claims to have antioxidant properties 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C!
What Does Skyn Iceland Icelandic Youth Serum Do?
The new serum, which is bright red in colour has been formulated to:
- Help prevent and correct stress-induced signs of ageing
- Shield against UV induced skin damage, photo-ageing & hyperpigmentation
- Restore skin’s radiance and clarity
- Infuse skin with deep, long-lasting hydration to replenish natural moisture balance
- Boost skin’s natural collagen levels to blur the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
- Calm and soothe to reduce the appearance of redness & irritation
What Is In Skyn Iceland Icelandic Youth Serum?
There are a whole host of free-radical fighting ingredients in this serum, with the main antioxidant being Astaxanthin which is made from red algae. Astaxanthin is 6000 times stronger than Vitamin C and is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
The formula also includes naturally occurring amino acid Ergothioneine that also works to protect the skin from oxidative stress and free radical damage.
Fullerene works to scavenge free radicals and soaks them up like a sponge to prevent them from reacting with the skin.
Finally, Zinc works to calm, soothe and regulate oil production while Camelina Oil is rich in fatty acids and is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
I have been playing with this new serum for a week or so and it is so nice to use. When I first tested it was on the back of my hand. The transformation from one hand to the other was quite incredible. On the face, it is super hydrating and plumping, sinks in really quickly and makes my skin feel smooth, super soft and calm.
It sits beautifully under my day moisturiser – I have been using Shiseido Benefiance SPF25 – and together they make a perfect base for makeup. I let the serum sink in thoroughly before applying more product.
As a quick note, I tried it under a couple of oils I have been using recently – the Kiehl’s Cannabis Oil and also the Sunday Riley CEO Glow Oil – and I found it pilled under both. Therefore I tend to avoid using this with an oil.
