Correct way to use Serum

Serum is a great product and may cost you a bomb, but the benefits provided are nowhere near the price. It is essential to apply this product in the right way so as to gain maximum benefits from it.


use a dime size amount


After the regular cleansing and toning, leave the skin damp for some time and after few minutes apply a pea-size amount of serum to your face and leave it for a few seconds so that it gets absorbed deeply in the skin. Within a few minutes of application, apply your regular moisturizer because till that time the serum must have penetrated to the innermost layer of the skin.

Applications of serum in required amount only is advised and never use excess serum thinking that it will give added benefits, because in that case, the high concentration of nutrients may clog the skin pores and cause irritation or rashes on the skin.
