Pretty Interview: Lina Hanson on Body Serums

Celebrity makeup artist and natural beauty expert Lina Hanson is the the founder of Lina Hanson Global Beauty. In this interview she answers my questions about body serums.

What are the benefits of body serums?
Body serums are wonderful hydrators. Because they often don't contain any water or chemicals, they lock in the moisture and leave your skin moisturized, smooth and nourished. Body serums are also non-greasy and absorb quickly into the skin, improving elasticity.

What encouraged you to create a body serum?
I wanted to create a body moisturizer that would be 100% natural, using the highest quality natural ingredients that people all over the world have been using and cherished for centuries - with amazing results. We have been using mass produced products for so long that have been filled with chemicals. My goal was to bring back these natural 'skin-care secrets' and make them attainable for all.

How are body serums different from body oils? 
Neither body serums or body oils contain any water. Oil and serum (if it's 100% natural) are the same thing. Our Global Body Serum is just a blend of oils, but we like to call it a serum.

Are body serums used in conjunction with a moisturizer, for example before applying a lotion?
It's really whatever you prefer. You could use the body serum in conjunction with a moisturizer. (You would put the serum on before the moisturizer to make sure all the vitamins and nutrients would absorb into the skin first.) However, I prefer to just use the serum by itself. It leaves your skin so moisturized and soft that you really don't need an additional moisturizer.

When should body serum be applied?
After a shower is a great time to apply the body serum. You can use it on damp or dry skin. You can also use the body serum on any dry patches, on your skin when you feel you need some extra moisture.

How long does it take before a difference in skin texture can be noticed?
You feel a difference in your skin almost instantly after using a serum. It leaves your skin with an amazing glow!

When is a body serum a necessary step of body care?
Your body deserves the same attention as your face. When treating it with a serum, it will help your skin get the nutrients it needs to stay soft, smooth and nourished. The Global Body Serum contain ingredients that are known to improve skin circulation and help reduce cellulite.

I also would like to add that the key ingredients in our blend are harvested and produced by farmers and women's cooperatives world wide. This helps support their entire communities.

Thanks Lina!
