What is a Skin Serum?
There is so much information about serums. But what is a serum? And now the rage is to use oils, but it’s actually an ancient form of moisturisation that has been tested and tried successfully since the time of Cleopatra. If you are seeking wrinkle-free, beautiful clear skin then you should considering using anti-aging serums in combination with oils. Why? That’s precisely what we’re going to take a look at in today’s post.
What is a Skin Serum?
Skin serums are typically high in concentration of an active ingredient and may contain a host of additional ingredients to help the product absorb or provide maximum results. Serums are usually light, fast-absorbing liquids used as an alternative or in addition to creams or lotions. Hyaluronic acid is one such ingredient. This powerful chemical can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles when used consistently. Most high-end anti-aging serums utilise Hyaluronic Acid. Learn more about Hyaluronic Acid.
Serum for dry skin
Baimeni’s Hydrating Eye & Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid is magic in a bottle. It actually helps skin actually absorb and be nourished by the moisturiser. The majority of moisturiser actually evaporates because they are mostly made of water. Each Hyaluronic Acid molecule can hold up to 1000 times itself in moisture, which means it is clinging on to the moisturiser and absorbing it, leaving skin hydrated. Baimeni’s Hydrating Eye & Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid is an intensely moisturising serum that is suitable for all skin types.
Serum for oily skin
Believe it or not, you’re in luck! Try Baimeni’s Hydrating Eye & Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid alone (under an SPF during the day)! Seriously, no joke. As mentioned before, Hyaluronic Acid holds up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. This means these molecules will be looking for moisture, and with oily skin each molecule will love it and get plumped up, leaving skin soft, smooth and matte.
Why serums and oils are to be used together.
Now that you understand why serums are important, let’s see why oils are so beneficial to use in accordance with them. Face oils provide a significant boost of hydration for your skin. When your skin is tired and dried out, it forms fine-lines and wrinkles more easily. Oils love fats, so they absorb into your skin’s lipid barrier, making it easier to keep your skin hydrated all day. When used in combination with serums, fine-lines are minimised and you can keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
Face oils over face creams can penetrate the skin better because of their small molecular structure; not forgetting many of them contain lots of fatty acids that are essential for healthy, glowing skin. Additionally, it may be more beneficial to use a blend of different oils, as opposed to a single oil, because of the added benefits each oil will add. While plant oils contain many beneficial ingredients, using a face oil alone is not enough. Combining serums and oils into your skin car routine will provide even greater benefit. Take for example, our Hydrating Eye & Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid, when paired with our Natural Essential Face Oil, you will find that it sticks and absorbs into your skin so much better than when a face oil is used solo.
For anti-aging at its finest, consider using both face oils and serums in your daily moisturiser routine. The result will be healthier, younger looking skin.
