Why I use Hercules Active Phage Serum (Hint: to age gracefully and avoid acne)

by Parallel Health Team

Growing up in Hawaii, I embraced the sun with open arms. However, as I ventured into adulthood, I began to see the toll that constant sun exposure had taken on my skin. Years of constant sun exposure began to reveal themselves as dark spots on my complexion. Determined to take control and avoid premature wrinkles, I made a commitment to safeguard my skin by religiously applying sunscreen and investing in high-quality skincare products.

Hercules: More than Just an Anti-Breakout Serum:

While Hercules indeed helps keep my occasional breakouts in check, it goes beyond that—it's a formidable ally in my anti-aging efforts.

Here's why Hercules has become my trusted companion:

  1. Collagen-Boosting Power with Collagen Peptides (Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38): Also known as collagen peptides, it plays a pivotal role in boosting collagen synthesis—a key factor in maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. 
  2. Dark Spot Fighter using 3-Glyceryl Ascorbate and Niacinamide: 3-Glyceryl Ascorbate is a stable form of Vitamin C that helps brighten and even out skin tone. Niacinamide, or Vitamin B3, soothes the skin and aids in moisture retention. Together, they tackle dark spots and promote a radiant complexion.
  3. Skin-Tightening Magic from Nanno-chlor-opsis Occulata Extract & Pullulan: These ingredients have remarkable skin-tightening effects, adding an extra layer of anti-aging prowess to Hercules. These ingredients work together to give your skin a more youthful, lifted appearance.
  4. Acne Prevention from PC1-Everyday Complex: Phages are masters of precision. In the context of the Hercules serum, they employ a highly targeted approach, accurately seeking out C. acnes bacteria, the notorious bacterium often responsible for acne.

For those of us who enjoy being in the sun while preserving our skin's youthful radiance, Hercules Type 5 Active Phage Serum is my ultimate solution. Your future self will thank you!
