Your Skin Serum Questions Answered

As consumers, we get drowned in all types of beauty products on a daily basis. And sometimes the media and packaging can be very misleading with regards to what your skin really needs. In terms of skin serums, here’s everything you need to know.


Why Should I Use A Skin Serum?

The application of a serum is an absolute necessity in our books! Your skin will thank you for it sooner than you can imagine.

A serum is perfect for addressing certain skin concerns because of its nature to rapidly penetrate into the upper layer of your skin, leaving it plump and hydrated.

Your face will absorb it super-fast; therefore you don’t have a long-term moisturising effect, which results in the mandatory application of a day or night cream afterwards.

When Should I Use A Skin Serum?

It’s important to apply this product twice a day. The use of two different serums (targeting two different skin issues) or the same one is up to you.

You need to apply your serum of choice after cleansing and exfoliating and before your preferred moisturiser (day or night cream, depending on the time of day, of course) and SPF.

We like a hyaluronic acid-rich serum in the mornings for hydration and filling in fine lines. And a multi-purpose anti-fatigue, anti-ageing serum to treat flatness, slackening and wrinkles in the evenings.

How Do I Use A Skin Serum?

It’s simple: After cleansing and exfoliating, place two or three drops of serum on your fingertips. Then, slowly but firmly massage the product into your face, jawline, neck and eye areas as desired.

Don’t wipe the excess moisture away – allow your skin to soak up the serum completely before you move on to your moisturiser. Et voila!
