Everything You Need To Know About Serums!

Serums are skin care products that are designed to deliver high concentrations of specific active ingredients to the skin. There are many different types of serums on the market that perform different jobs, ranging from hydration to skin brightening.

How to use a Serum?

Everyone's skin is different, but on an average, you should give it about seven weeks to see how your skin responds to a new serum routine. Depending on the serum and the current state of your skin, you might even see initial results — like slightly more hydrated skin — in just a few days.

Generally, you should use a serum all over your face and neck twice daily, once in the morning and then again in the evening, before applying your moisturizer if you want to get the most bang for your buck. With the staggering number of options currently available, it seems a shame to restrict yourself to a single bottle. 

How does a Serum benefit your skin?

In general, serums contain topical antioxidants including vitamin A, C and E. They also contain topical retinols and ingredients that even out skin tone. When layered underneath moisturisers, serums act as targeted treatment for wrinkles, pigmentation and redness. The key is to look for serums that deliver a ton of botanicals, antioxidants and hydration — they can deliver a concentrated dose of nutrients, and when applied on just-cleaned skin, the serum will penetrate more deeply. 

Daytime Serums: Hydrating, Protecting

The first thing to look for in a daytime serum is a weightless, traceless finish. Antioxidants ingredients like argan oil or vitamins A, C and E will increase protection against pollution. You should try to use something that is hydrating under makeup, but also oxygenates before heading out.

Whether it’s the air circulation in your office or the cups of coffee you're consuming throughout the day, your skin needs added hydration to stay supple.

Nighttime Serums: Resurfacing, Repairing

Your skin waits until your day is over to go to work this for night, you always want repair ingredients. Look for stem cells for collagen production, olive oil as an anti-inflammatory and rosehips. Hydrating serums under a moisturiser will maximise hydration while you sleep.

To go beyond repairing and hydrating, pick up a bottle designed to speed up cellular turnover, go for products which contains glycolic acid with raspberry extract, lactic, tartaric, citric and salicylic acids for effective chemical exfoliation.
