Why should you consider a serum?


It's easy to think of serums as one of the most mysterious skin care products. You may have collected different types of products yourself (we certainly have), but can you honestly admit that you really know what they actually

do for your skin?


We've put together a serum profile for you to check out and get a better understanding of this amazing product. What is serum? Serums are blends of powerful ingredients used to treat a variety of skin conditions.

You'll find that their consistency can vary, but they're usually water-based and absorb into the skin in record time! Their formula is made up of smaller molecules, allowing them to penetrate the lower layers of the skin.


By penetrating deeply into the skin, they are great for targeting areas like wrinkles and fine lines.

What are the benefits of serum?


Honestly, the benefits of serums for the skin are overwhelming. Packed with ingredients (hyaluronic acid, ceramides and vitamin C to name a few), the possibilities are endless.

The purpose of a serum is to contain a high amount of active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin and fight against all skin problems. Here are some key benefits of serums: Serums increase collagen production and help


fight signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.

Serums keep skin hydrated and prevent dryness. The serum reduces the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone. Serums protect skin from environmental influences like harmful free radicals and pollution. The serum treats


blemish-prone skin and prevents the further formation of acne and breakouts.

This all sounds pretty impressive, right?


You might be wondering, why use a moisturizer when serums are so taxing? Although serums can provide great hydration and hydration to the skin, a moisturizer is still recommended as it acts on the outer layer of the skin and

creates a protective barrier on the face to retain all the good stuff and keep the skin hydrated Protect makes serum and moisturizer a powerful combination in your skincare routine to get rid of bad stuff.


Why should I use serums?

Ultimately it's really up to you and what you use on your skin, it's your skin after all. However, if you find that despite daily cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, your skin is looking increasingly dull, lacklustre, and


showing signs of aging, choosing to add a serum to your routine may be the answer.

Serums are more concentrated than moisturizers and work faster because once the serum penetrates the skin, it works diligently and with little disruption while the facial epidermis is protected by the moisturizer. It's a win-win


situation!
How to use the serum? To ensure your serum works its best, you need to use it at the right time in your routine. Here are the key steps you need to follow to get the best results from your serum. Make sure you have removed all makeup residue with a makeup remover (preferably not wipes). Skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove all remaining traces of makeup, dirt, debris, oil, and daily buildup of dirt and pollutants. Next, apply a toner. This removes the layer of dead skin cells that form the barrier and make it difficult for the serum to absorb into the skin. Now for the serum, apply it all over the face (be careful not to get in the eyes) and leave the serum on for a few minutes to allow it to fully absorb into the skin. Use your favorite moisturizer to build a protective barrier and balance skin's water and oil levels. Finish with a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher to keep your skin protected from UV rays. This is a great example of a basic skincare routine to try when you feel like your skin is missing something and needs a little boost. Serums are considered more expensive skin care products, but they are definitely an investment worth spending your hard-earned money on. The powerful formula of the serum is so powerful and effective that it will do wonders for your complexion when used properly. When should I start using serums? Yesterday! But let's be honest, there's no wrong time to start using a serum in your routine. Prevention is the secret to keeping your skin healthy, happy and youthful. The sooner you start doing this the better! Should You Use Serums Every Day? Yes or no, it's still best to look at the label and double check. It all depends on the ingredients used and the thought behind the recipe. For example, evening serums may contain retinol, which is UV-sensitive and not effective when used during the day. In general, however, most serums can be used on a daily basis. Is using a serum suitable for my skin type? Almost everyone will benefit from using a serum.
