Serums are one of the first products created to add to a skincare routine (when it’s the only cleanser, toner, moisturizer), and needless to say, it’s a game-changer. Serums do create a significant impact on any skincare routine, and undoubtedly the same can be said for you too. Thanks to the latest technology, we have serums formulated for various skin issues, in different key ingredients, and certainly in varied textures to cater to your skin. And here’s a complete, compact guide on tips to add the remarkable product into your regimen.
Despite all of the various formulations available for serums in the market, you can indeed find the right kind of serum suitable for your skin. For that, let’s start from the basics.
What is a serum?
At the essence, a serum is a concentrated liquid with active ingredients that you’ll use for your skin. Because of the relatively high concentration compared to moisturizers, serums are a ‘bare’ product of goodness intended to deliver the benefits into the skin for quick, visible results. Compared to moisturizers, the ingredients are relatively at a lower concentration than serum to make way for other components such as emollients, humectants, and ceramides formulated to restore and support the skin’s outer surface against various environmental assaults.
Such potent power from serums that while it’s appealing, not every skin type can benefit from it as it may be ‘too much for the skin. Hence, a lighter version of serum - known as essence - is created. Of course, this also means that how serums works are undeniable that a more diluted version is designed to cater to all skin types and issues, and we couldn’t agree more.
And here are the tips that you can do to add a serum into your skincare routine.
Start by considering the formulation - do you need to address specific skin issues or just content with a formulation covering all bases? If particular skin issues are visible and affecting your daily life, a serum with certain ingredients will undoubtedly speed up the skin’s healing process to address such concerns. For example, skin sagging may need collagen and peptides, or perhaps pigmentation issues that serums can remedy the skin with vitamin C serum.
Initially, serums are made to be oil-based as plant oils and extracts are the significant components of serum. Thanks to the latest technology, we now have water-based serums that are equally effective for the skin and works wonders for dry, oily, and sensitive skin types that may need an additional hydration boost. Knowing the exact base of serums is essential. You need to layer products accordingly to your skin in the proper order - always apply water-based first followed by oil-based - and this is especially important if you’re using two different serums.
You can incorporate the product into your skincare routine as the formulation works well, and it’s intended to be absorbed quickly into the skin upon application. Tip: Our serum is formulated to suit times to cover all of the bases to address various skin issues thanks to Multiple-Functional Firm Complex and the antioxidant trio vitamin A, C, E. It is recommended to be applied twice or thrice a week for ages 40+ and not be combined with other products due to the intensity of the formula used.
