Serum 101 – Do I need One?

With all the different creams, gels, ointments, toners, and other skincare products out there, it makes you wonder whether you need all of them.

Serums:

  • are a liquid or gel-like formula packed with a high concentration of super effective ingredients like vitamins, antioxidants, and peptides
  • made up of small molecules so it penetrates the skin deeper to give faster results than a lotion or cream
  • can treat all kinds of skincare issues from acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and other anti-aging issues

Here’s how to use a serum properly:

  1. Wash your face (click here to see how to wash your face properly – you maybe doing it wrong)
  2. Pat your face dry
  3. Smooth on a few drops of serum
  4. Wait for your face to absorb the serum
  5. Apply moisturizer

I personally like using serums especially after a shower. There’s something about the consistency which is thick enough to apply but not greasy afterwards.

We’d love to know what your favorite beauty serums are so let us know!
