Face serum is an integral part of every skincare routine. Face serum is a lightweight skincare product packed with a high concentrate of active ingredients, which are directly absorbed by the skin and penetrate deep to work their magic. It helps you in maintaining a youthful, healthy and supple-looking skin.

What does a Face Serum contain?

The 3 main types of ingredients that usually make up a face serum are
Antioxidants,
Anti-inflammatories, and
Hydrators.
From extracts from witch hazel, and different antioxidant fruits, hyaluronic acid to vitamin C, and zinc and ceramides for hydration, serums have it all.

Do’s and Don’t of a Face Serum

Less is more because of its high concentration: Using a minimal amount of Face serum is usually sufficient for good results.
Determine your skin type before following any skin care routine with serum. For instance, anyone with oily skin will find just a serum enough for the proper care and can afford to skip the moisturizer since serum provides basic hydration needed for oily skin.

✔ Apply serum once in the morning, once at night. With any skin routine, follow an adequate pace to get maximum benefit.
Clean your face before applying any face serum for maximum result.
✔ Always allow the serum time to be absorbed properly by the skin before following it up with other products like moisturizers.

With these basic do’s and don’ts, anyone using a serum can come across a noticeable improvement in their skin, in due time.

Benefits of Face Serum

✔ Face serum is mostly water-based, hence it does not clog pores (like some moisturizers do!).
✔ Face serum makes skin firmer and smoother preventing ageing and its effects before the signs even begin to show.
✔ It gradually reduces the sizes of the pores on the skin making it acne-resistant.
