Serum Savvy

18th April 2018

WHAT DOES A SERUM DO?

This is a question that a lot of people ask. The  simple answer is, as with use of any skincare, a serum works hard to take the very best care of your skin with an additional layer of deep down do-good to preserve its future; making your skin look and feel the best it can be.

Serums are designed to reach the lower levels of the epidermis and contain active ingredients to communicate with skin cells to address and improve specific skin care problems and concerns. These active ingredients are usually included in much higher concentrations than in your daily moisturiser. 

TEMPLE SPA serums treat the foundation layer of your skin, whereas our moisturisers are designed to add a critical layer of protection on top, dealing with your skin type also. For this reason you should apply your serum after cleansing and toning, before applying your moisturiser.

Our serums are formulated by the highest calibre of derma-scientists to be professional problem solvers. Each serum is carefully formulated to work on any skin type. 

Generally serums are thinner, lighter formulations offering a light veil of problem-solving treatment that is easily absorbed and leave little or no trace.

Serums should always be used in conjunction with your daily moisturiser which remains the foundation of a good skin care regime but address specific skin care concerns.

 

Q: Can I mix and match all the Temple Spa Serums?

A: In short yes you can. Our serums are problem solvers and should be

selected to meet the needs of your skin today. This can change of course during the months, the seasons and of course the years. The thing to do is take a good look at your skin, decide what is the problem you want to solve and select one or two serums to deal with it.

One trend in skincare now is to layer fine serum formulas to treat the skin and our serums can be used in this way or you can select your night time restorative and your day time saviour from our collection. For example the best serum for mature skin with age spots, lost firmness and bounce would be TRUFFLELIXIR super luxe serum at night and BE FIRM skin lifting serum during the day. 

One thing to bare in mind is that skin cells turn over every 28 days and so with ingredients focussing on this too you’re best to give each serum time to do its work.  You can also target certain areas with a specific serum too and become your own therapist.

Here’s a guide to help select the best one for you and your skin concern:

If introducing TRUFFLELIXIR to your skincare regime and you want to keep using your existing serum we would suggest TRUFFLELIXIR at night over a clean skin and under moisturiser or Repose.

And the great thing is TRUFFLELIXIR can be used in a targeted area too – i.e. as a wrinkles on the forehead, around the eye, frown lines, neck or décolletage
