Then, I will break down our three serums by perform and pores and skin sort.

What’s a facial serum?

The precise definition of serum is that this: “the watery a part of blood that comprises antibodies and fights illness”. A secondary definition is “any watery animal or plant fluid”. Are you grossed out but? Sorry! However, I would like you to grasp the true definition so we are able to see the way it segues into the world of skincare.

You will discover water-based, gel-based, and oil-based serums, making it exhausting to know precisely the best way to incorporate a serum into your routine. A water or gel-based serum will convey added hydration and water-soluble nutritional vitamins to the pores and skin, whereas an oil-based serum may convey antioxidants or anti-inflammatory vitamins, ship oil-soluble nutritional vitamins, and assist the pores and skin retain water. (Notice: do you know that oils are not hydrating? Any phrase with “hydr” must be about water. Oils don’t have any water. They’re principally the alternative of water. They soften. They ship vitamins. They assist pores and skin retain water. However they don’t HYDRATE. Solely water does that. That is why you could use oils on moist or damp pores and skin. Rant over.

The easiest way to consider a facial serum is to contemplate the medical definition: it is a liquid, both oil or water, with concentrated elements designed to focus on particular situations, identical to antibodies in our serum goal sure illness processes. Relating to the best way to use a serum, I like to recommend water-based merchandise earlier than oil-based merchandise, however your pores and skin will let you already know should you’re doing it proper. Our three facial serums are oil-based, so I like to recommend cleaning the pores and skin and making use of the serum to very damp pores and skin, to be able to add hydration.
