Serums are potent skin care products that are capable of fulfilling a variety of roles in your skin care routine. They are carefully coordinated selections of ingredients designed for potency. Most serums are lightweight products capable of penetrating the skin effectively to provide the most benefits to the skin that they can. The consistency varies, but it typically around that of a lotion or lighter depending on the individual brand. Due to the potency of serums, you want to make sure that you pick the right serum for your skin type. Using a serum trying to treat different skin issues than the ones you have could be damaging in some rare cases. We’ve put together a quick primer on how to choose the right serum. With it, you should have no trouble narrowing down what you should be using.
Life has a way of making it difficult for us to maintain all the healthy habits that we’d like. The habits generally play a big part in maintaining our overall health and as a result the appearance of our skin. A week of poor sleep can sometimes be enough to dull that naturally healthy shine. Ideally, you should be able to back to your habits to restore your natural beauty, but you can select a serum to use routinely that can give your skin a good pick-me-up. Vitamin C serums are a good option for this. The ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C, will help polish the skin as well as revitalizing it from within. Vitamin C also works best on cleaner skin. This makes it the ideal component for a rejuvenating serum.
Oil control can be a facet of serums, but they typically aren’t the primary product that you’ll be using for such tasks. People with oily skin should pick a serum based around their skin’s other needs, but need to focus on finding very particular serums. Oil-free serums exist and offer a way for people with oily skin to make use of serums without the extra layer of product represented by a serum causing a negative impact on their skin. Due to the nature of oily skin, you may want to consider using a hydrating serum since heavier moisturizers tend to cause problems for oily skin. Following this tip will allow you to keep your skin moisturized without needing to carefully manage how much of a heavier product you use each time you do your skin care routine.
Vitamin C serums, as previously discussed, make for excellent rejuvenating serums. They can work wonders for helping fight the signs of aging. The trick is that they don’t always have to be your only choice. Serums that include DMAE are also highly viable options for reducing the signs of aging. It is known to help improve the appearance of wrinkles and other areas of sagging skin by improving the overall firmness of skin. The ingredient is also highly versatile and able to be used across many product types. Any serum containing both vitamin C and DMAE is an excellent way to combat the signs of aging by increasing the overall firmness of the skin in multiple ways while encouraging your skin’s natural healing properties.
Serums are relatively easy to select once you know a few general rules. The main idea behind picking the right one is selecting your biggest skin care issue. Oily skin requires a particularly delicate hand and aging skin benefits from a particular set of ingredients. Serums are intentionally focused on their ingredients to provide the most benefits possible within a single product. You just need to remember that serums should be put on immediately after they’ve finished using skin cleaning products as the serum will benefit your skin the most that way.
