Although it is not essential to include in your daily skin routine, serums come highly recommended due to their very special benefits that no daily moisturiser or night cream can deliver alone.
Serums penetrate deeply into the skin, delivering a very high concentration of active ingredients. The molecules in a serum are smaller than the molecules in a moisturiser, which allow them to bring more active ingredients deeper into the skin than moisturisers. Serums help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, help to make the skin appear brighter and help to fade brown pigmentation spots.
Serums Versus Moisturisers
Serums do not contain the typical emollients found in moisturisers and night creams and also do not contain sunscreen. A serum should not replace your daily moisturiser or night cream, but rather add additional benefits moisturisers and night creams can’t give to your skin.
Serums contain active ingredients that penetrate deeper into the skin. Used regularly it will give your skin a smoother, more youthful look, making pores appear smaller as well as giving you a beautifully hydrated skin. Goodbye to dry skin!
