How to properly use a face serum and why you need one

May 21, 2018

Best Plant Stem Cell serums for women over 50 with sensitive skin, toxin free, anti-aging, EWG

 

First of all--What is serum?

A serum is a skincare product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing with the intent of delivering powerful ingredients directly into the skin. Serums are particularly well suited to this task because they're made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. This makes them a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles. 

A serum can be used morning and/or night. Use your Retinol serums at night and your Vitamin C, Peptide, and Plant Stem Cell Serums during the day. Always layer a serum first and moisturizer second. That way, the moisturizer seals in all of the serum's nourishing properties.

How do I know I need a Serum?

Okay, so you can’t turn back time, but a little Vitamin C can sure make it look like you can. 

Dr. Anjali Mahto, a dermatologist at the Cadogan Clinic, explains:

“The benefits of vitamin C have been known for some time, but are definitely coming more to the forefront lately. This may be because we’re much more aware of our environment and the way it’s affecting our skin – we’re a lot more aware of environmental pollutants such as radiation, sunlight, cancer-causing free radicals and smoke, which break down collagen, stressing the skin and accelerating the aging process. As vitamin C helps to counter that process and can be used to treat such a variety of issues, it’s become a bit of a hero ingredient.”

When Do I Need to begin using Vitamin C?
