The facial serum- why and how to use it?

When it comes to a skincare routine, we are used to the cleanse-(tone)-moisturize schedule. However, there seems to be an ignored/forgotten but important step, that is serum application.

What is serum composed of?

The independent website has described it to be ‘a skin care product that you apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing with the intent to deliver a potent shot of ingredients directly into your skin’. In my opinion, they could not have defined it better. Unlike the cream, its molecules are much smaller, so they are able to go deeper into the skin. Because of this ability, they are formulated with active ingredients that are suited for different skins.

You have …

a) dull skin: use one with antioxidants such as tea tree extracts.

c) aging skin: use the one that is composed of Hyaluronic acid as its active ingredient.

d) dry: why not try one that contains vitamin E, glycolic acid, or hyaluronic acid.

b) oily: Vitamin C, retinol

What does it do to the skin?

  1. It increases the potency of the moisturizing cream, by penetrating through the top layer of the skin(epidermis). Thereby delivering a lot of ingredients to the skin within seconds.
  2. Fine lines are minimized: Those with hyaluronic acid help to lift the skin and give it a plump feel and look. As such, wrinkles are drastically reduced with continuous use.
  3. It  hydrates and adds glow to the skin

Where and when to apply the serum?

The serum can be rubbed in on the face and neck in small, circular motions. When added to skin care routine, its action is best when used after toning, but before cream application. Just a tiny amount is enough.serum

Before applying, read instructions

Just like any skincare product, make sure to read the instructions before use. For example, some are not suitable for the delicate eye area.

Finally, the moisturizing cream still remains a necessary step. Picture serum diving. deep into the skin and the cream serving as a roof.

Be sure to give this Miracle item a try and have me to thank. Wink wink
