Skin care products for your post dermarolling skincare
After derma rolling, your skin is in excellent condition to absorb skin care products such as moisturizers, creams, serums, anti-aging products and many other cosmetic items.
In this post, I just want to highlight two types of serums/lotions that could complement your microneedling regime:
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Vitamin C Serum
Hyaluronic Acid Serums and Lotions
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural lubricant found in human eyes and joints. When used on the skin, it becomes a super moisturizer that plumps up your skin and helps in the retention of moisture.
Hyaluronic Acid serums are excellent for use right after microneedling, as it hydrates the skin, and has a soothing effect that can counteract the redness and soreness you may feel after your derma rolling session.
Vitamin C Serums
Vitamin C serums can speed up the natural healing process of your skin, which make them excellent to enhance the skin’s natural healing of the micro-lacerations caused by microneedling.
However, do take note that Vitamin C can exacerbate the irritation experienced by the skin after microneedling, so it is not advisable to use it right after the microneedling session.
Apply the Vitamin C Serum at least 4-5 hours apart from your derma rolling session.
