There are so many new trends and ‘must-have’ products when it comes to our skin that it’s hard to stop and try one or even learn more. One of these products are serums. There has been a lot of hype about serums but, do we actually know what they are and what they do?

So, we’ve got a little more info about them to help you select the right one for your skin type/concern.

WHAT IS A SKIN SERUM? Facial serums are lightweight moisturisers that penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. They are ideally applied after cleansing, and before applying a moisturiser.

WHY SERUMS? Serums are performance products that contain higher concentrations of active ingredients to deliver proven results.

LESS IRRITATION: Serums are predominantly water based and contain less comedogenic properties than conventional creams, which means they are less likely to cause irritation and breakouts.

SERUMS VS CONVENTIONAL MOISTURISERS: Since serums are designed to be efficient delivery systems, they don’t contain unnecessary artificial ingredients. Their sole purpose is to deliver active ingredients deep into the skin where other products can’t penetrate.

Now that you know more about skin serums let’s see which of your skin concerns can be corrected by using a serum:
