Everything You Need To Know About Serums

Posted by Ashley Hufford

Do you ever feel that you aren’t getting the results from your skincare routine that you would like? Is there something that you wish was different about your skin? If you feel that the answer is yes to either (or both) of those questions then you need to get a serum ASAP. Serums are a high concentration of tiny molecules of ingredients that penetrate deeply into the skin. Because serums can move deep down into the skin they are the perfect tool for targeting concerns of aging, dryness, and hyperpigmentation. Serums do the heavy duty work and are the secret weapon to correct any concern.

Are serums the same thing as moisturizers?
No. Serums can be incredibly moisturizing and they help retain moisture, but you still need to use a moisturizer to lock everything in. Your moisturizer will help keep the benefits of the serum working longer and be more effective because it will push the serum deeper into the skin. A moisturizer also keeps also the nasty stuff floating in the air to not affect you skin as much. Think of your moisturizer as your shield of armor that does all the protecting. Your armor (aka moisturizer) keeps everything on the inside safe and shields from outside harm.

When to use a serum?
After you cleanse your skin you will apply your toner and once that is soaked in go in with your serum of choice. Gently rub the serum in and then reach for your moisturizer.

How often should you use a serum?
Once a day is great, but be sure to read the label.

Yes, cocktail your serums. Mix two serums together for achieving multiple benefits. Mix your serum in with your Leahlani masks for extra boost of goodness. Or, for that glowy makeup look mix your serum with your liquid foundation.

Price tag
Some serums can seem to be pricey, but you have to keep in mind that its a blend of incredibly effective ingredients. Not to mention a bottle goes a long way and will last a long time.
