Copper Peptide Serum as regular moisturizer?
« on: December 17, 2012, 04:13:09 PM »
Hi Sarah, just wondering if the copper peptide serum can be used as a regular moisturizer?  I needle only once a month and need something to moisturize with but infadolan is too thick for my skin,

If your skin is not dry and you are relatively young (the skin tends to get drier with age), there is no reason to use a moisturizer every day.

The skin should however be kept moisturized as much as possible after microneedling. Copper peptide serum is not a sufficient moisturizer after microneedling (the serum has no oily or fatty ingredient), especially not if you needle with long needles.

You can for example wet a cotton pad with tap water, add some almond oil and apply it to your face.  Keep the large container of almond oil in the fridge and refill a small one that you can keep in the bathroom. Oils are wonderful moisturizers because they form films to prevent water evaporation from the skin.

Or use cocoa butter or any cream that is a bit heavier than a light moisturizer but it which does not cause breakouts with you (in case you are prone to acne). 
If you apply it after dermarolling, it is more hygienic to use a cream that is in a tube because tubes do not get contaminated. Creams have preservatives in them - but anyway :-)
