For anyone seeing the first signs of ageing — and for many women, this starts in their thirties — we really drive home the need to use a serum beneath their moisturisers.
Moisturisers are non-negotiable at the best of times, even on oily skin, but when you begin to see fine lines, loss of elasticity and wrinkles beginning to show, then you need back up.
Thankfully, serums provide an invaluable service helping to not only give a huge boost of moisture to the skin but can also plump, smooth and calm skin as well.
And according to Live About, serums are thinner and lighter than moisturisers and have a great variety of functions. Usually, serums contain active ingredients that you want to penetrate as deeply as possible into your skin. For this reason, you should always apply a serum directly to your skin after cleansing or toning and before your moisturizer and sunscreen.
Serums can be used both morning and night. They do not replace your moisturizer but can boost the hydrating effects of your moisturizer.
Serums are used to address a variety of skincare issues. For example, there are anti-aging serums, skin brightening serums, and acne prevention serums. Serums tend to be more expensive than other skin care products, but being that they’re full of potent ingredients, a little goes a long way.
