What is a serum?
Serums are concentrated thick liquid-like products with active ingredients formulated mainly from smaller molecules so they can penetrate more easily and deeper into all three skin layers.
Serums are not to replace moisturizers but enhance their action. The content in emollients or thickeners, ingredients that create lotion or rich cream texture, and does not contain sunscreen filters. Furthermore, they do not contain many oily components and thus use that extra “space” to include other beneficial ingredients or even more antioxidants and anti-aging factors than other products.
Why use a face serum?
A Serum won’t replace your daytime or nighttime moisturizer, but they will boost your anti-aging results and overall skin health. The main reason to use a serum is to get extra nutrients into deeper layers of your skin that a regular moisturizer is not able to reach due to its large molecules; moisturizers can only penetrate the first layer of the skin, allowing them to hydrate and seal in moisture.
Exception: If you have oily skin (and thus don’t need extra moisture), a well-formulated Serum can work as a double-duty product that replaces your daily moisturizer!
How to properly apply a serum?
Apply your Serum after your Daily Cleanser
in your daytime and nighttime routine. Wait a few minutes until the serum is fully absorbed, and then apply your moisturizer. That will allow you to lock and increase the benefits of the serum.
During the day, apply a thin layer of your serum under your broad-spectrum sunscreen to help repair skin and protect it from UV exposure and air pollution. At night you can apply your Serum in larger quantity and let it work as you rest.
