What is a Face Serum?

Face Serums are thick liquid-like products which have active ingredients like vitamins C, K, E and anti-oxidants that are formulated with smaller molecules so that they can penetrate deep into the skin. Face Serums are oil or water-based products, that are designed to penetrate into the deepest skin layers and treat various skin conditions, such as redness, dehydration, lack of firmness/sagginess, wrinkles, dark spots or to brighten the skin.

How are Facial Serums different from Facial Moisturizers?

The molecules in serums are smaller that the molecules in our regular moisturizers; this is why Facial serums penetrate into deeper skin layers while on the other hand a face moisturizer works only on the first layer of skin.
Serums are in concentrated form and have active ingredients like vitamins, minerals & anti oxidants crucial for treating various skin conditions. Moisturizers are only efficient in providing moisture & hydration to the skin that too only for the first skin layer.
Serums are more efficient and quick in providing results.

What Should You Use, a facial serum or a facial moisturizer?

This is the most common question asked by ladies. What should they use, a moisturizer or a serum? Now that you know the difference between a facial serum and facial moisturizer, answering this question becomes simple.

To know your requirement, know your facial skin. If your skin does not ask for much hydration and does not suffer with any significant beauty issues, then you can simply do fine with just a facial moisturizer but if your skin lacks moisture and tends to seek moisturization multiple times a day, then you should definitely use a face serum.

Moreover, no matter if you have skin issues or not, I personally suggest involving face serums after 25 yr of age to delay skin ageing specially if you have dry skin. Though it is often suggested after 30 but it is always good to prepare your skin before.

Benefits Of Using Face Serums!!!

  • Serum gives Proper hydration to skin.
  • Serums have age-defying ingredients which help in delaying the ageing process.
  • Serums are hydrating but non-greasy, so even women with oily skin too can use face serums.
  • Specific serums are available to prevent acne.
  • Serums can help fade away black spots & age spots.
  • Serums may also help in reducing pore size.
  • Serums can help fight against various other skin issues.
  • Improvises skin texture and even tone it.
  • Brighten complexion.

How to properly apply a serum?

This is another very confusing question. When to apply a serum in between the CTM routine?

Let me make this simple for you.

Do the regular cleansing, like you do always and then apply an alcohol free toner. You need to apply serum after toner. If you have dry skin, then you should apply serum when your skin is still damp post toner application to seal in moisture.
No you can follow up with your face moisturizer.

In short, a serum should be applied after toning and before moisturizing.
