We all know the basics about moisturizers, toners and cleansers. And we also ‘think’ that we know what serums are. A water-like thingy that you put on the face. And you might also won’t be minding using it whenever you feel like.
Serums are very popular nowadays. But what exactly is the hype all about? Do you really need them?
It’s about time we learned a thing or two about these true workhorses of any product line.
Serum is a skincare product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturising. It helps deliver powerful ingredients directly into the skin.
Moisturisers, cleansing waters, serum-mists, purifying essences—they all sort of look, feel and sound the same. So here’s a breakdown of the distinctions:
- MOISTURISERS and creams are richer and create a barrier on top of the skin. This barrier helps to keep all that good stuff in. Serums can be full of moisturizing ingredients to help skin retain moisture. But, that doesn’t make them moisturizers in the traditional sense.
- TONERS, also called softeners which help to balance your skin’s pH levels and prep your skin with a bit of hydration. As a result of that, it can better absorb the following treatments. You can apply the toner with your fingertips or a cotton pad.
- ESSENCES aid in cell turnover, leading to smoother texture over time. It also provides the skin with nourishing vitamins. So, pat it on your skin with your hands for best absorption.
- You can use Toners and essences as prep before the main treatment. However, you an use SERUM as an ultra-concentrated essence designed to target a specific skin concern. The concern can be dark spots, large pores, wrinkles or acne. Therefore, helping you say goodbye to signs of ageing!
