Face serums are the new panacea to all your skin problems. Packed with powerful ingredients, face serums are formulated to treat specific skincare concerns. Till a couple of years ago, skincare was limited only to moisturisers and creams. But with the advent of face serums, skincare has changed for the better.
But how are serums different from your usual skincare products and how to incorporate them into your daily skincare regime? We’ve got all the answers for you.
Moisturisers are cream-based formulations of thick consistency. They contain large molecules of ingredients and therefore, they do not penetrate into the epidermis i.e., the topmost layer of the skin. Rather, moisturisers only form a protective layer on the surface of your skin and thus they do not have any repairing or healing properties. Serums, on the other hand, contain a high volume of active ingredients like Vitamin B3, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. The molecules of these ingredients are small and therefore, face serums get easily absorbed into your skin. This helps in replenishing your skin cells and treating different skincare concerns.
Your skin is exposed to dirt, pollutants, impurities, and other environmental factors every day. This takes a toll on your skin’s health and as a result, its texture and glow get affected. To combat these ill effects, it is essential to maintain a daily skincare regime to ensure your skin remains supple, soft, and glowing. Sometimes, your skin may develop specific problems like fine lines, pimples, and dullness around a particular area. This is where serums come into play.
Every skin problem demands specific treatment, So, a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. The Spawake Pimple Solution Purifying Serum is your ideal fix for pimples and blemishes. Consisting of Advanced Purifying Complex, Salicylic acid, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, and oil control particles, this serum unclogs pores, nourishes your skin, and makes your skin pimple-free. To defy fine lines and wrinkles, the Spawake Age Solution Intensive Serum can be used. Its fast-absorbing Advanced Rejuvenating Complex combats ageing from deep within and gives your skin a youthful glow. The Spawake Triple Care Serum helps maintain your natural glow and keep it radiant. Formulated with Vitamin B3, Vitamin C, and algae extracts, this serum discourages melanin generation and tackles dull skin and dark spots.
Serums are not a substitute for a moisturiser but rather a supplement to it. They can be used both during day time as well as at night time. Adding a serum to your daily skincare routine makes your skin naturally radiant. After cleansing and toning, apply a layer of serum on your skin and let it seep into the skin. During the daytime, you can layer it up with your favourite moisturiser or sunscreen for maximum protection. To accelerate the repairing process, you can even cleanse your face once in the afternoon and reapply the serum on your skin. During the nighttime, your skin needs to relax and breathe. Therefore, apply only a thin layer of serum and leave it overnight for maximum effect.
Choosing the right serum for your skin is very important. You should take into consideration your skin type and the skin concern(s) to be treated before buying a serum. It is also important to combine your serum with the right moisturiser for optimal results and flaunt glowing, naturally radiant skin without any worries.
