You take care of your skin every day. You clean your face, use moisturizer and antiageing cream at night. Why should you add something else to your routine? Highly concentrated serums can really improve your skin. Let’s take a look at it together.
What is a serum?
A serum is a concentrate of active ingredients. These ingredients are focused on specific skin care concerns. Serums are made of smaller molecules than a cream and penetrate deeply into the skin. Most serums have a light texture which is quickly absorbed.
There are various serums for each skin concern :
- loss of firmness
- clearing blemishes
Serums must be highly concentrated with active ingredients, penetrate quickly into the skin and not leave a sticky sensation.
Why a serum?
Use a serum when your beauty routine is not enough for your skin’s needs. Use it either once or twice per day. You can deal with two different serums : moisturizing on the morning and antiageing on the evening. You can either use serums everyday or for a while depending of the specific needs.
How to apply a serum?
Apply it just after cleansing and before your day or night cream. As it is very active and concentrated a few drops are enough. Wait a few minutes between serum and cream for the nutrients to be absorbed.
If you already use a serum you certaintly have noticed the benefits on your skin. If you don’t, just try and tell me.
