Face Serum – The Magic Potion To Add To Your Skincare Routine

When serums arrived on the market, they started a little revolution in skincare routines all around the world. With a serum in your skin care routine, you are giving yourself a fighting chance to keep your skin looking beautiful and young for longer. Its texture is perfect as a skincare product, as it is thinner than a cream, penetrates in the skin in the blink of an eye, and leaves a silky finish.

How are serums different from creams?

The benefits of serums in skin care don't stop at just making your skin feel smoother and being lightweight in nature. The airy texture of a serum works with the skin and allows the active ingredients to move quickly towards the cells and do their job. Even though it may seem this way, there is nothing magical about the benefits of serums. They just contain less water than cream and more active ingredients. Serums are twice as concentrated as creams. Which make their formulation more potent and help you see visible results faster.

How to use a serum?

Although, when they first arrived on shelves, it was recommended to use serums as a cure (especially at the change of seasons), now they can be used preventatively and as part of our daily skincare routine. One can use different serums for different skin types and reap their optimum benefit. Apply it to clean, dry skin and let it sink in, while gently massaging and patting your skin. Then, after a few minutes, finish off with a moisturising cream, ideally from the same skincare range for the perfect synergy. You can repeat this in the evening, before your night cream.
