If you’ve been waiting for the right time to get your skincare routine in shape, now is a great time to get down to business. Since you have to take all beauty matters into your own hands until social distancing is no more, it doesn’t hurt to pay extra attention to your skin. And we have the perfect skincare product in mind, a face serum.
While most people look at anything outside out facial cleanser, moisturizers and toners as unnecessary, face serums play a key role in keeping your skin healthy and balanced.
Face serums are lightweight serums that work to penetrate deeper into the skin to help improve its texture, increase moisture levels and can give your skin a firmer, more youthful appearance. A standout skincare product, face serums can help tackle a wide variety of skincare concerns to improve the overall look of your skin.
So, you know all the basics on face serum but how do you use it in your skincare routine? When it comes to skincare, it’s best to use products from thick to thickest consistencies in your regimen to maximize their benefits.
For example, a simple skincare routine may consist of a facial cleanser, toner, face serum, face moisturizer and sunscreen. For a nighttime routine, you can switch things up with a facial cleanser, exfoliant, toner, retinol, toner, face serum or elixir, eye cream and a moisturizer. You pretty much get the idea?
And if you’re wondering which face serums are best for your skin type, we have all the tea on that as well. Keep reading to find the right face serum for you.
