To enhance the results of red light therapy, it's recommended to use an anti-aging serum after your light therapy session. Retinol, argan oil, peptides, or vitamin C are some of the ingredients to look for when searching for a serum to use after red light therapy.
Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is a common ingredient in anti-aging products like moisturizers and serums. It encourages cell regrowth and replacement while you sleep, making it a great product to use before bedtime. Although using retinol and LED light therapy together was previously considered inadvisable, recent science shows that retinol-containing products can be safely used after a light therapy session, but not before.
Vitamin C is another popular ingredient in beauty products. It can boost the skin's radiance, even out skin tone, stimulate natural collagen production, hydrate the skin, and provide skin-brightening antioxidants. Red light therapy provides similar benefits to vitamin C serums and is also an effective anti-aging solution.
Choosing between retinol or vitamin C serum to use with red light therapy will depend on your specific goals. If you want to brighten your complexion, using vitamin C serum alongside red light therapy could be beneficial. On the other hand, if you want to reduce wrinkles, retinol might be a better choice.
Remember to apply your serums after the light therapy treatment to maximize their benefits.
