Have you ever wondered what the buzz around serums is all about? Is this seemingly magical potion a worthy addition to your skincare routine? Let’s dive into the essential questions & demystify serums together.
What Exactly is a Serum?
Serum is a lightweight, fast-absorbing liquid formula that contains high concentrations of active ingredients, designed to deliver them effectively into your skin.
Why Use a Serum?
Have you reached the limit of what a simple moisturizer can do for your skin, is it begging for a potent companion? Introduce a serum! Serums offer targeted results. They are typically water-based and formulated to address specific skin concerns - want to combat aging, dreaming of hydration...? Whether it's pigmentation, deepening lines, or other issues, serums are your skin’s effective problem solvers.
Are Serums and Moisturizers Interchangeable?
The answer is no. While moisturizers and lotions also contain active ingredients, they are primarily designed to create a barrier on your skin to prevent moisture loss. Serums, on the other hand, are designed with absorption in mind. Their main goal is to deliver active ingredients into the skin. They both have distinct roles, and one cannot replace the other.
When is the Perfect Time to Apply?
Timing is key. After cleansing and toning, your skin is a clean slate. This is the perfect time to apply your serum. Since serums are highly concentrated, usually a few drops will suffice. Apply gently to your face and neck, and allow it to absorb, then add more goodness and lock it in with a layer of moisturizer.
Choosing Your Perfect Match
Like finding a soulmate, choosing the right serum requires knowing yourself. Understand your skin concerns and… pick your perfect match!
