Face Serum: Give Your Skin An Extra Glow Naturally

If you are the kind of person who likes to optimize your beauty regime, a face serum is a must-have. Beauty specialists have observed that using face serum and moisturizer together gives better results than using moisturizer alone. Having said this, using a serum that contains all-natural ingredients is even better for you. Serums are highly potent moisturizers that deliver a host of nutrients into your skin. They are very light and to this end, they are absorbed very fast. It is always wise to choose a serum that is designed for your skin type and one that contains ingredients that suit you. If you are allergic to something, be keen and avoid irritants that can do more harm than good. The maze of serums can be confusing; and this article explores everything you should know about serums so that you can take your beauty to the next level.

Why should you consider using a face serum?

As mentioned above, serums are made of concentrated ingredients. Some ingredients may help with anti aging, acne problems, brightening, hydration, exfoliating and more. In this respect, you can choose a specific serum to meet an individualized need. Just like adding a supplement to your diet, a serum can greatly boost your skin to give you better health and notable vibrancy.

A guide to choosing the best face serum

Serum for acne prone skin

If your main skin concern is acne, you can choose a serum that tackles this problem. This serum will contain exfoliating ingredients as well as agents that control the production of sebum in your skin. These ingredients may increase skin shedding or desquamation. Most popular components may include retinols, citric acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, papain, malic, bromelain and more. Many of these are enzymes from fruits like pineapple, apple, papaya and many more. They are also classified as AHAs and BHAs. As alluded to earlier, choosing a serum with all natural ingredients is much better for skin care.

Serum for skin brightening

If you are dealing with issues such as age spots, acne scarring and even hormonal issues, your skin may have dark patches that dent your complexion. You will be looking for a brightening serum that can deliver an even skin tone that is attractive. There are natural options for this task including vitamin C, kojic acid and arbutin. A serum that has these ingredients will brighten the dark areas and restore a natural glow. 

Serum for anti-aging

A serum that helps you age gracefully may contain a host of ingredients. The most common ones include peptides, antioxidants, essential oils and stem cells from plants and fruits. These elements can boost collagen, tighten the skin, improve fine lines and wrinkles, among many other actions. All people will benefit from using an anti aging serum as part of their skin care routine.

Serum for superior hydration

If you want to enhance the hydration of your skin, choosing an ideal serum is the way to go. There are excellent hydration ingredients including tremella and hyaluronic acid. These elements hold up to 1,000 times their weight in water. Aloe vera is another common ingredient found in hydrating serums. Using such a serum will certainly spark a natural glow for the ultimate beauty. 

There are people who are tempted to choose all the serums mentioned above in a bid to tap into the results. The best approach is to consider your primary skin problem and choose a serum that works. Serums are very potent and using too much or a wide variety at the same time can be counterproductive. If you are unsure about which serum is right for you, consult a beauty expert for the best way forward.

When should you use a serum?

When to use serums is also another source of confusion for many. The rule of thumb is that you should use face serum before you moisturize. A serum should be incorporated into your daily routine for morning and night time use. Some people will use a serum and not follow up with a moisturizer; this is fine; especially if you are using a hydrating serum. Otherwise, you should start by cleansing your face, then tone, followed by serum, a moisturizer and finally a sun blocking agent. Do not forget that you should exfoliate your skin at least twice a week before applying a serum.

How to use a serum the right way

A single pump from your serum bottle or container is enough. Use your fingertips to massage it across your face. Avoiding using your palms to optimize the product coverage. Be as gentle as possible and then apply a moisturizer.
