Serums are skin care products that deliver high concentrations of active ingredients to your skin. #Serums have formulas tailored to specific skin concerns like #acne, #hyperpigmentation or #wrinkles, and can include potent ingredients like #glycolic acid, #vitaminC and #peptides. Serums also tend to have the lightest consistencies of all your skin care products, ranging from water-like essences to gels & even oils.
How do I use serums?
You should always apply your serums first, for a couple of reasons. First, since your serum has the highest percentage of active ingredients, applying it to freshly cleansed skin gives it the best opportunity to deliver those ingredients where you need them the most. Second, a serum’s light consistency has a hard time getting through thicker products like moisturizers, so if you apply it after your other products, you’re not getting the full benefits of your serum.
How much serum should I use?
Less is more when it comes to serums. With most formulas, you only need a few drops for your whole face, neck and décolletage, so don’t go overboard! Serums are formulated with the precise amounts of active ingredients your skin can absorb at one time, so using more won’t give you better results and may even lead to irritation if you have sensitive skin.
Is serum right for my skin type?
There’s a serum out there for you, no matter what your skin type is! Just make sure you’re up to speed on the best ingredients to use for the skin issues you want to target.
#VitaminC is great for #matureskin (and most other skin types, too) because it stimulates #collagen production to firm skin and smooth wrinkles, with the plus of #brightening skin tone! #Dryskin loves ingredients like niacinamide, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid, which helps bind essential moisture to skin for a plumped, dewy finish. #OilySkin types should looks for ingredients like exfoliating glycolic acid and lightweight hydrators like #hyaluronic acid that balance oil production.
Even those with #sensitiveskin can use serums with gentler formulations and skin-soothing ingredients like #cucumber, #chamomile and #rosemary extracts.
Saving her money and time!!! My products are on the higher end but compared to the tons of products full of synthetics, chemicals AND still finding zero results . Wait let's not forget about endless visits to the dermatologist ♀️. I think finding something 100% natural from a small business that tries to be very transparent with the process is a winner. I am blessed to be chosen to do this work and it's a blessing every time I get to share my praise reports . Click link in bio for more info on my skinfood.
