4 reasons to add a face serum to your skin care routine
Every where you turn there is a magazine or a commercial is busy suggesting you use this or that product. Lets face it, we have a counter full of products that we don’t even use or know how to use. Let me share one little step in your skin routine that will blow you away. Add a Face Serum!!! A face serum is like the workhorse, there to improve the overall look of your complexion. They can make a difference between dull and radiant skin. Here are 4 reasons to add a face serum to your skin care routine:
1. You must understand the importance of serums
Serums are usually formulated with a higher concentration of active ingredients so that a few drops are sufficient to cover the entire face. They are packed with turbo-charged ingredients designed to penetrate skin in a way an everyday moisturizers can’t. The main reason that you should use a facial serum is to get added nutrients into deeper layers of your skin that a regular moisturizer is not able to reach. Each face serum may be aimed at solving a specific problem such as anti-aging, hydration, skin brightening, etc. To get the best results for your skin after cleansing, toning and moisturizing, add a face serum(just before moisturizing) to your daily skin care routine.
2. Your serum should be working for you
Instead of being heavy like a moisturizer, serums are light in weight using the extra space to pack in higher concentration of beneficial ingredients and antioxidants that fight free radicals that damage the skin. In essence serums are lightweight moisturizers that penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. You can’t have too many antioxidants in your skin care routine now can you?
3. Don’t be afraid to add layers
A serum won’t replace your daytime or night time moisturizer, but they will be extra nourishment for your skin under your moisturizer. When it comes to anti-aging and healthy skin that extra layer of protection will really pack a punch! Serums are simply an added step for those who are looking to go the extra mile in their daily skin care routines
4. Try wearing it alone
A well-formulated serum may work well as a double-duty product that can be used as a stand-alone product for someone with oilier skin, or used under a moisturizer for someone with normal to dry skin. It is important to use face serums at night, because UV rays and oxygen can cause them to oxidize.
