What Are Serums? Why Use Them? Which Are the Best Ones For You?

28th February 2019

Discover the Benefits of Face Serums, What They Are, Why You Should Use Them and How To Apply Them

We all want to look and feel our best. As our skin is visible to the world and our biggest organ, looking after it is a really good place to start. Knowing the optimum way to do that however can be a minefield. Face serums are a really important step in skincare, so let us help you navigate through all those serum questions you have, to help you find the best one for you. 

TOP TIP: Skin cells renew every 28 days; so, this is the amount of time you want to give serums to work. 

What Are Face Serums?

So, what actually are face serums? They are formulas made up of smaller molecules, that are designed to penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a high concentration of active ingredients. These active ingredients are for targeting specific skincare concerns. Generally speaking, serums are thinner, lighter formulas and easily absorbed into the skin leaving little or no trace. 

Why Should You Use Serums?

If its results you’re after or you have a particular skincare concern, you need serums in your life. It’s because of their high concentration of active ingredients and their ability to soak into your skin, that they have a much more targeted effect on our skin cells and deliver actual visible results. 

When Should You Apply Face Serums?

Serums should be applied after cleansing and toning, before you moisturise. Apply both morning and night as part of your skincare regime, and you can alternate between serums, so use a different one in the morning to the night. We would recommend hydrating serums for overnight and radiance or protection ones in the morning.

Now you know what a serum is and why you need to be using one, here’s some advice to help you choose the right one for you.

Do you have dry skin and is it in need of a hydration boost? Look for serums containing vitamin E, niacinamide, glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid.

Do you have occasional spots or acne? Key actives to go for are antioxidants such as vitamin C, retinol, zinc and salicylic acid.

Lacking in radiance or looking for smoother skin? You’ll want ingredients such as green tea extract, resveratrol and ferulic acid.
