WHAT’S IN A SERUM

A serum is enriched with ingredients and nutrients that are beneficial for skin. They are mostly water based for fast absorption. Usually, they don’t have oil-based ingredients like oils and petrolatum as they deliver active ingredient late to the skin. Water-based serums deliver powerful results.

 

HOW TO CHOOSE A SERUM FOR YOUR SKIN

Before selecting a serum for your skin, always look for the goal you want to achieve. For example, if you are looking for something to diminish wrinkles, you should go for serums with peptides. Always look for labels if it has an ingredient you are already sensitive to. Serums are not a replacement of your already skincare routine, it is designed to accelerate the results you want to achieve from the moisturizer. Serums are slightly expensive then a basic moisturizer because it contains more active ingredient then moisturizers do.
