Face serum benefits: From radiance to rejuvenation!

January 21st, 2022 | by

Serum – not your regular moisturiser nor your daily sunscreen, but truly powerful active ingredients such as niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, or salicylic acid that penetrate deeper than any of your day-to-day products to work at the source. We’d like to take this opportunity to educate you (and startle you!) with some face serum benefits. You will be pleasantly surprised to find out that serums offer a whole lot more than you imagined.

Face serums are a powerhouse of active ingredients that boost your skin from within. You can customize them based on your skin type and concerns, which means you will have to choose one that deals with your skin’s particular needs.

So, what do they do, and why should you care? Let’s take a look at their benefits, when to use them, and what key ingredients you need to consider before selecting one.

What are the benefits of face serum?

Boosts hydration

No more skin irritation

Goodbye Blemishes

The Best Pore refiner

Brighter looking skin daily

Ageing-What is that? 

What are the benefits of face serum?

A serum is beneficial to you in more ways than one: it hydrates, protects, rejuvenates, exfoliates, plumps, you name it! Serums contain active ingredients like niacinamide, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and more that target specific skin concerns. Remember: Serums shouldn’t replace any of your everyday products. You’ll want to pair them with your usual cleanser, moisturiser, and sunscreen if you’re applying them in the morning.

1. Boosts hydration

Drinking water alone isn’t enough, your skin needs that extra boost of hydration daily. This is where hyaluronic acid’s miraculous properties come into play. Try the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Capsule in Serum at night, and follow it up with moisturiser to look refreshed and renewed the next morning.

2. No more skin irritation

Sensitive skin can be tough to tame if not cared for properly, leading to redness, patchy, irritated skin. Add to that, pollution and sun damage. One of the many benefits of face serums is that they can help soothe inflamed and irritated skin. If you have sensitive skin, you can give The Face Shop’s Calendula serum a try.

3. Goodbye Blemishes

Who knew that a simple serum could do so much for your skin? Say goodbye to breakouts and imperfections with The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil’s natural ingredients. It contains tea tree oil, which makes your face look purified, clarified, and matted all at the same time!

4. The Best Pore refiner

Trust me when we say this: serums are godsent and we are stunned by all the benefits they provide. Especially when it comes to enlarged pores, you can count on the Minimalist 2% Salicylic Acid Serum. It is suitable for all skin types and is a great exfoliator.

5. Brighter looking skin daily

If you’re looking to brighten and even out your skin tone, vitamin C is usually a go-to favourite. Niacinamide, Kojic acid, and tranexamic acid are all excellent choices to look out for if you want to minimise discolouration. You can try the Plum 15% Vitamin C Face Serum for an even-toned, bright complexion.

6. Aging-What is that?

Your skin needs to dodge fine lines and wrinkles. The Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum works like magic due to the active ingredient retinol. One thing to keep in mind: even though retinol is the most effective anti-ager, it takes a minimum of three months to show results.

Takeaway

When investing in a serum, make sure you consider your skin type and problems, and find a serum that claims to do exactly what you need. Serums are highly concentrated with active ingredients, so don’t forget to consult your dermatologist before trying something new. Finally, embrace your skin to the fullest and do what makes you feel your gorgeous self!
