SERUM : DEFINITION AND BENEFITS TO THE SKIN (PART 2)
FIVE BENEFITS OF USING A SERUM
- SERUM WORKS.
Serums are all killer and no filler, featuring the highest active ingredient concentration you can get without a prescription. Cleaners and moisturizers typically contain between 5% and 10% active ingredient, while serums can contain up to 70%, which means you’re actually going to get results, whether you’re just looking at tone decreasing fine lines, brightening, firming, and getting rid of dark spots.
- NO FILLERS.
You know how important it can be to avoid cheap occlusive agents (such as mineral oil and petroleum) if you have sensitive or breakout-prone skin. Serums are intended to be delivery systems in general, so they do not contain any of them. Their goal is to ensure that their fancy active ingredients (stem cells ,beneficial minerals ,peptides, and vitamins) get past the outer layer of your skin and deliver their magic deep down, so that anything that might interfere with that task is left out of the mix.
- LESSER BREAKOUTS.
Those with skin that is sensitive to acne, rejoice! Unlike traditional moisturizers (which can leave a thin layer on top of the skin), serums have a watery consistency — and many are actually water-based rather than oil-based. It means that they absorb much more easily without leaving behind any breakout-encouraging residue. It’s the blessing we hoped for!
- A LESS OILY COMPLEXION.
This happens to us on a regular basis: if our skin gets oily the last thing we want to do is to moisturize and add more fuel to the grease fire, but then our sebaceous glands go bonkers, overproducing oil to try to compensate for the constant dryness that it feels like. In reality, our attempts to make our skin less oily end up making our skin oilier! It’s here the serums come in. Much lighter (and easier to absorb) than moisturizer, they keep your skin hydrated without leading to the greasy feeling that we all hate so much, and because you stay hydrated, your skin will not overproduce sebum making you less oily in the long run.
- YOU’LL SAVE MONEY?
It all comes down to what you’d rather spend on. Would you choose five cheaper products that take up space on your shelves and don’t do anything for your body, or one that does amazing things and costs a little bit more? Trust us; you will never waste your money on anything else until you find your perfect serum.
Finally using them regularly, you can get the best results from most skin care products. This is particularly true when you try to remove age spots and wrinkles. Use a serum before you give up on it for at least a month. It may take some research and error, but you will finally find the best skin serum for your needs.
