Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum
2013 is the year of the Snake, the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac. The influence of the snake in the beauty industry has become one of the surprising new skincare secrets of recent years. As well as plumping and anti-aging benefits, it is thought snake serum can be as effective as a Botox in fighting wrinkles.

Products containing snake venom or those which incorporate a synthesised version mimic the effect of a snakebite on the skin. Upon application on your face, skin is left in a stunned state as if it had been attacked by the retile, and in a way that gives similar effects to Botox.

Celebrities have raved about snake serums as a way to achieve wrinkle decreasing while maintaining movement and emotions in the face.

Wrinkle Killer Snake Serum is the hero product by beauty brand Skin Chemists. This natural wrinkle remedy uses a combination of oxygen and a formula replicating the Temple Viper’s venom, which aims to inhibit muscle contractions. This works to prevent lines developing and gives a more plump and youthful complexion.

Rodial’s Glamoxy™ Snake Serum also uses the Temple Viper as inspiration behind their wrinkle fighting product. The Venom gives a mild freeze-like effect supporting the reduction of visible facial contractions, and it also boosts the glow and radiance on the face with a 3D plumping effect. This serum is super hydrating and you can notice the effects instantly on application.

One of the first products to tap into the snake is Planet Skincare’s daily moisturiser which contains a ‘star ingredient’ known as Sny-ake. This was the winner of the Swiss Technology Award 2006, and has an impressive amount of figures to back-up its anti-ageing, skin smoothing claims including up to 52 per cent wrinkle reduction and 82 per cent smoothing effect. Your face will be velvety soft after use, even if your wrinkles are still in place. © Cover Media
