I’ve been testing out SkinTimes Hydromarine Extreme Collagen Serum over the last two months. I am acne prone, and the smallest fluctuation on my lifestyle can send my skin into a frenzy. So, after a frantic 2010 in which I got married and moved abroad within the same month, by the end of the year I was struggling with a bad breakout that I couldn’t get rid of. I began exfoliating with Exuviance Clarifying Lotion which worked wonders at preventing new spots from forming and minimising existing blemishes, but I also needed a gentler hand which would softly heal my ravaged skin.
I reached for this serum, which contains a high concentration of active ingredients combine its anti-ageing action with anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties – making it superb for acne sufferers. Marine collagen (68%), aloe vera and chitosan help skin cells to retain moisture and provide optimum protection from the elements whilst chamomile has a soothing action and allantoin helps tone skin and refine pores.
Its ability to increase the skin’s immune system make it the ideal treatment for acne and post-acne conditions, oily skin, scar regeneration, congestion and hyperpigmentation. This works so well at moisturising the skin, repairin g damage and soothing acne. It’s ideal for skin like mine which is not only spot prone, but dry – which makes the skin feel uncomfortable and even sore during a bad break out. This is instantly comforting and works well at healing painful blemishes and acne scars.
