Do I Need a Face Serum In My Skincare Routine?

Every skin type is different and deserves a specific skincare routine. Nevertheless, there are some star products everyone needs. Sure, you have a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. But have you chosen the ideal face serum yet? 

While face serums may contain hydrating and moisturizing properties, this product has a realm of its own. Generally, you can choose between light or creamy textures and the function of their active ingredients.

But let’s get down to the basics: 

What is a face serum?

Face serums are a lightweight skincare product with a higher concentration of active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Glycolic Acid, and vitamin C. It’s ideal to apply twice a day after toner, followed by moisturizer. 

This product is designed to provide you with high concentrations of a specific active ingredient for the skin. There are many types of face serums for different affections, most of them can prevent acne, wrinkles, dark spots, and skin sagging. 

More benefits of face serums 

Adding this product to your skincare routine can be a game-changer! Prolonged use can help to manage these specific concerns. 

  • Helps to brighten dull skill 

While age and lifestyle are crucial factors for skin radiance, face serums boost cell renewal and hydration, translating to firmer, glowy, youthful-looking skin. 

  • Prevents fine lines and wrinkles

Pick a face serum with a high concentration of vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. These two vital antioxidants can prevent signs of aging. 

  • Locks-in the moisturizer 

Skin experts believe layering a moisturizer after a face serum can enhance the properties of both products. Therefore, serums are thinners and absorb quickly, preparing the skin to engage and lock the hydration, nourishing all the layers.
