Serums can be a bit confusing. What is it? What does it do and where does it fit into my skincare routine? These are some questions that I’ve been asked recently. So, let’s make it easy.
What is a Serum?
Serums are not moisturisers, rather they are designed to deliver active ingredients deeper into the skin to target specific skin concerns. They are formulated with ingredients which have smaller molecules allowing them to easily and quickly absorb into the skin. Serums can improve the overall appearance of your complexion by targeting areas other skincare products may not be able to reach. Serums the correction part of the skincare routine where we address the particular concerns you have with your skin.
How do you choose a Serum?
Serums are chosen depending on your skin concern and it is always best to have them prescribed by a skincare professional. This is so important as there a specific ingredients that need to be avoided for certain skin types and some health conditions eg. Pregnancy & Breastfeeding.
How do you use Serums?
Depending on the Serum and your skin concern will determine when to use them. Basically Serums are the first product that you apply after thoroughly cleansing the skin. Always follow with your prescribed Moisturiser after the Serum has absorbed into the skin.
