There are a lot of serum formulations on the market today that promise to fill in your lines and wrinkles. Some of course, better than others. Mostly, they do this by adding silicones to the serum. Silicone is often referred to on ingredient lists as Dimethicone. Lets be clear, Dimethicone is perfectly safe as an ingredient, in fact, I quite like it, as it gives your serum its silkiness, helping suspend other active ingredients in the product until released into your skin upon application. Dimethicone will also smooth and fill the surface of your skin making it appear less lined. Great!! I’m all for it!
But, here’s the thing. I prefer my serums to include other ingredients that do more than smooth and plump; I want my serums to contain meaningful active ingredients with the potential to change my skin for the better. Enter Vitamin B3.
