The serum has become the face product not to be left out of your beauty routine. Indeed, its use has become more and more popular over the years and it is almost impossible not to find it in the cosmetic collections of beauty brands. For those concerned with the beauty of the skin, it is essential to find a facial routine adapted to our skin, and the use of a good serum is part of it. Discover in our article what are its benefits and how to use it in the best way on a daily basis.
What is a serum?
The serum is a liquid product, sometimes viscous, lighter than a moisturizer. It is applied after cleansing the skin, before the day cream or night cream. It is a very concentrated product. It is used as a layer of care before the hydration. It does not act like a cream and therefore cannot replace it. There is not really a universal serum for all skin types because they are used to treat specific needs (imperfections, redness, dryness, wrinkles, lack of radiance, brown spots, sagging skin, etc.). Dry skin, combination skin, sensitive skin, mature skin or oily skin, you are bound to find something to suit you.
Serum or face oil?
The serum is a concentrated care that is chosen according to a skin problem or a specific need. It is applied after cleansing the face. There are two types of serum: in oil and in water. They are both very concentrated in active ingredients, their use depends on your skin type and your needs.
Its benefits on the skin
The primary use of a serum is to provide initial hydration to the epidermis. It comes in several versions with benefits that vary according to the needs of the skin. A serum can be soothing, purifying, regulating, moisturizing, anti-imperfections, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-spot, for example. There are others designed for specific parts of the face, such as the eye contour area.
Depending on the desired effect, the active ingredients used in their formula vary.
You may find vitamins, trace elements, hyaluronic acid (ideal for its anti-aging and moisturizing properties) or peptides (amino acids). Amino acids are essential to the natural moisturizing factor of the skin's corneal layer, and trace elements play a role in skin aging and skin beauty in general (acne, scarring, etc.).
How to use it?
The formula of a serum is always ultra-rich. Therefore, it should be used in very small quantities. For a better efficiency, it should be added as a complement to your day and/or night routine. Use it on clean skin previously cleansed with a micellar water and a cleansing foam, before your skin care cream. It is recommended to use a serum and a face cream from the same range in order to optimize the benefits of the products in synergy. A serum with natural or organic active ingredients is best for your skin. For an instant radiance, add a few drops to your day and/or night cream, directly in the palm of your hand. Warm up and apply to the face.
