The days of skincare routines consisting of a gentle cleanser, a moisturizer, and maybe a toner are long gone. Now there are many products that we use - but just because you use it doesn't mean that you necessarily know what it actually is. Take serums for example. They moisturize our faces, but we still need a moisturizer. They're usually oily, but they're not face oil. If you're curious about what they actually are, and how to choose the best one for your needs, read on.
What exactly are face serums?
Face serums are a lightweight lotion that delivers active skincare ingredients right into your skin. They go the extra mile and penetrate deeper into your skin to strengthen your skincare routine. While they aren't necessarily an essential part of every skincare regimen, they're a great addition if you really want your skin to look and feel extra healthy. If you aren't currently using a serum, adding one into your routine will definitely give you big results.
Who should use face serums?
Honestly, everyone could benefit from using a face serum. It's true that serums are mostly used to treat wrinkles and other signs of aging, but there are other benefits of using one. If you're in your twenties or thirties using a serum now will improve the health of your skin and prevent premature aging. If you have oily skin, you can use serums in place of a moisturizer. Drier skin types may apply serums under a moisturizer to add even more hydration to skin.
