Everything You Need to Know About Serums
Today’s post is all about serums. Not everyone knows exactly what they are, what they do, and how they benefit your skin therefore, they never add a serum to their skin care routine. We are going t cover all you need to know about serums but if you have any more questions or want to know about the serums we offer, leave us a comment below! We’d love to hear from you.
So let's get started.
What is it?
A serum is a lightweight moisturizer that packs a lot of power. Since it doesn’t have many heavy ingredients it gives your skin a higher amount of the “good stuff.” So the active ingredients for moisturizers are all that's in the serums and its able to seep into your pores better than your normal moisturizer.
Why should I use a serum?
The concentrated amount of active ingredients helps to repair skin, reduce wrinkles, and deepen skin hydration. In another blog post, we mentioned the benefits of antioxidants in your skin care products and serums tend to pack lots of antioxidants and other nutrients to feed your skin.
Can I do without it?
It’s really is an added bonus and it isn’t a necessary part of your skin care routine but if you know your skin type and are committed to the health of your skin, a serum is a great thing to have outside of the basics. It can only help and since you really don’t need too much of it, it will probably be your longest lasting face product.
How do I fit this into my skincare routine?
Let’s start this section by saying, a little goes a long way. As mentioned above, the ingredients in serums are concentrated so you really only need the recommended amount, nothing more.
You apply the cleanser after you tone your face but before you apply a heavier moisturizer. Although the serum is beneficial to skin, it is still very lightweight and you need to follow up with something thicker to keep your face moisturized throughout the day.
And that’s all there is to it.
