    Serums - Australia 

    Serums are potent products full of beneficial compounds designed to be applied after cleanser and just before a moisturiser, allowing them to penetrate deeply into the skin. Serums vary in function - from comprehensive to targeting specific concerns such as wrinkles, dark spots, and dryness. 

    Why should I use a face serum?

    Face serums deliver potent ingredients directly to the skin. They can help with various issues like fine lines, dullness, uneven texture, and dehydration. Because they contain concentrated formulas, they are often more effective than regular moisturisers in treating specific skin concerns.

    How do I apply a face serum?

    After cleansing your face, apply a few drops of serum to your fingertips and gently pat it onto your skin. Focus on areas of concern but avoid the eye area unless the serum is specifically formulated for it. Follow up with an occlusive moisturiser to lock in the serum’s benefits.

    When should I use a face serum?

    Face serums can be used both in the morning and at night - referring to the product usage directions. In the morning, choose a serum with antioxidants like vitamin C to protect your skin from environmental damage. At night, opt for serums with ingredients like retinol or hyaluronic acid to repair and hydrate your skin. 

    Note that potent active ingredients such as retinol and vitamin C should be followed with sunscreen. 

    Can I use more than one serum?

    Yes, it is possible to layer multiple serums to address different skin concerns. However, it's essential to apply them in the correct order—from the thinnest to the thickest consistency. Typically, water-based serums go first, followed by oil-based serums. Always allow each layer to absorb before applying the next. 

    What ingredients should I look for in a face serum?

    • For hydration: Hyaluronic acid and glycerin are excellent choices.
    • For anti-aging: Look for retinol, peptides, and antioxidants like vitamin C.
    • For brightening: Ingredients like niacinamide and vitamin C can help even out skin tone.
    • For acne-prone skin: Salicylic acid, retinol, and tea tree oil are effective.

    How long does it take to see results?

    Results can vary depending on the serum and your skin concerns. Some improvements, such as increased hydration, can be noticed within a few days. More significant changes, like reduced fine lines and dark spots, can take several weeks to a few months of consistent use.

    Do I still need a moisturiser if I use a face serum?

    Face serums and moisturisers serve different purposes. Serums provide a high concentration of active ingredients, while moisturisers help hydrate and protect the skin’s barrier. Using both can give you the best results.
