Serum. For many girls it is a cryptic and incomprehensible word. A few years ago serum, or serum or vial as it may be, was used only in beauty salons by beauticians.
What is a serum?
A serum is a product that must be applied correctly and chosen very carefully for one's skin. The main property of a serum is to introduce and intensify the effects of other cosmetic products on the skin. A serum is more effective than trying to achieve the same active ingredients and effects with a moisturizer or mask. In addition, the light texture penetrates the skin more easily.
It is important to know your skin type and your skin problem. For example, you have very dry skin. You use a moisturizing and nourishing face cream, but it is not enough. In this case, you need to add a moisturizing serum to your care and use it before your favorite cream whose action you want to boost. If the cream is for oily and problematic skin and the serum is moisturizing, it will not work. It is necessary to compare the effect of the cream in combination with the serum and sometimes even the components of the cream and serum.
Is serum the same as a face cream?
No, the major difference between a serum and a cream or emulsion is what is not included. Serums do not contain occlusive or hermetic ingredients that prevent water evaporation. They also contain fewer thickeners and are water-based. Serums contain the most potent dose of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as all the other ingredients that can be used to solve specific topical problems.
How to apply the serum?
For maximum effect:
- After cleansing and toning the face, apply a few drops of serum and spread it evenly over the face, neck and décolleté.
- It is not necessary to forgo your favorite moisturizer. Apply the serum first and then the cream. Together they will work even better.
- Is your serum too expensive to use twice a day? Use the serum as a booster by adding a few drops to your moisturizer so it lasts longer.
If you are looking to improve your skincare routine, now is the time to add a serum to your routine.
Our top 3 serums:
Vitamin C Anti-Wrinkle Serum - A unique daily Anti-Wrinkle Serum enriched with pure Dead Sea minerals and Vitamin C, visibly smooth and renew skin, restoring its youthful look and radiance. Organic Vitamin C promotes natural collagen production while stimulating fibroblast cells in the skin, enabling them to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Serum forms a stretching film on the surface of the skin to provide a lifting effect.
Hyaluronic Serum - tensively and deeply moisturizes and nourishes the skin due to its active ingredient - sodium hyaluronic. If you start using Hyaluronic Serum before the appearance of wrinkles, you have every chance to delay or even prevent their appearance. If you start using Hyaluronic Serum at an older age, this cosmetic product will help to smooth existing wrinkles and significantly rejuvenate the skin of the face.
Stem Cell Serum - Stem Cell Serum for the face and neck improves the influence of the anti- aging Stem Cell Cream and helps the skin absorb its active substances more effectively.
