The skin on your face is delicate and needs attention that is different from the rest of your body. One product that should be added to your skincare routine is a face serum. Skin serum is a product that you apply to your face after it is cleansed and preferably at night. It penetrates and nourishes the inner skin layer while delivering essential nutrients.
It is not exactly a moisturizer and not quite an oil but it sits somewhere between the two.
The best time to apply your serum is in the evening right before bed. Be sure to cleanse your face, apply your facial toner, and then apply your facial serum.
Follow it up with your favorite night cream. This allows your skin to fully absorb the benefits of the serum.
Serums come in many formulas in order to cater to various skin types. There’s not a “one-size-fits-all” formula because everyone’s skin has different needs.
Cold and harsh weather can cause the onset of dry skin. If your skin is already naturally dry, then these environmental conditions only worsen the feeling of dehydrated skin.
Look for serums that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the skin and is responsible for giving the skin a plump, hydrated look and feel.
A serum that contains hyaluronic acid is also ideal for people who want to treat aging skin and wrinkles. A serum with hyaluronic acid gives you a rejuvenated look. For an even greater rejuvenated look, try a serum with that and Vitamin C together.
If you find that your skin is dull and lacks radiance, try using a serum that contains exfoliating acids and antioxidants. The exfoliating acids break down and remove dead skin cells while the antioxidants combat the elements of your environment that are responsible for the look of aging skin.
Breakouts and Acne
Uneven skin tone caused by breakouts and acne can be a nuisance. In this case look for a serum that contains salicylic acid.
This ingredient is responsible for dissolving dirt, oil and other debris on skin that can result in clogged pores.
Once you find your ideal skin serum, be sure to incorporate it into your skin care routine and be sure to follow the directions on the product for the best results.
