What is a serum?
A serum is a boosting treatment, typically used under day or night cream, designed to provide extra nutrients to your skin. Typically, serums are highly concentrated and easily absorbed. In contrast to day and night creams, serums have a light consistency, and often they are rich in vitamins, antioxidants and emollients.
When do I apply the serum in my daily care routine?
A serum usually is applied in the morning and evening, after cleansing and toner, but before the moisturizer. The general guideline for the order of the skin care products is to start with the thinnest product and finish with the product with the thickest consistency.
Should I wait before applying my moisturizer afterwards?
Yes. If possible, it is always advisable to let the serum soak in well before applying your day or night cream. To ease the process along, you may want to gently massage the serum into your skin.
What is the difference between a serum and an oil?
Most importantly, oil softens the skin and is made up of lipids that provide the skin with fats - an excellent choice for dry skin, especially in the winter months. A serum, on the other hand, can be oil-based or water-based. If a serum consists of water-soluble substances, it may contain vitamins, but there also may be many other moisture-binding ingredients.
