What does Face Serum do?
A face serum can have different functions, it can replenish the moisture and dehydration of the skin, it can restore the hydrolipidic barrier of the skin which sometimes can be compromised and it can also create a gentle exfoliation to the skin.
Do I need both Serum and Moisturiser?
You might need to use a face serum and a moisturiser afterwards or you might not, it’s not a fixed roll if after you apply the face serum you feel your skin is still tight and it just craves hydration then you can apply afterwards a moisturiser but be very mindful on what kind of moisturiser you choose otherwise, if you have oily skin or if your skin is glowing and really healthy you might actually not even need it and you might be okay just by applying face serum.
When should you start using a Face Serum?
There isn’t a fixed age when you should start using a face serum, I would say literally you can start, anytime in your 20s, there are completely safe active ingredients inside so literally, after you, I normally say “prevention is better than cure” so early twenties will be perfect.
Can I use Serum at night?
You can absolutely use a face serum and incorporate that in your pm routine. Normally I might recommend just adding some more active ingredients such as retinol if you want to really work on anti-ageing but definitely, it is part of your pm routine.
How do you apply Face Serum?
A face serum is applied with your hands, so you can wash your hands really well then you pump it on your palm. I personally like to use my index and middle finger to apply it all over my face, I although prefer my pinky to just use it around the eyes area so it’s a little bit more delicate. I don’t want to press on this delicate skin so I just dab it with my pinky.
Which is more important Serum or Moisturiser?
I personally think a serum is more important than a moisturiser because a face serum is essential to restore the hydration to replenish the lipid body of the skin which often is compromised but if your skin is really healthy or if you have oily skin you likely don’t even need a moisturiser because either your skin is too oily so you don’t need any more moisture or a very healthy skin produces hydration from the deep layers.
Can I mix Serum with Moisturiser?
I would not recommend mixing serum and moisturiser together but you can definitely apply the serum first and afterwards if your skin still feels very tight or lacks a hydration then you can apply the moisturiser.
Do you use Serum or Toner first?
The serum has to be applied after the toner so the sequence is a cleanser, toner and then serum so never the other way around.
Can I use Serum without Toner?
You can use the serum without a toner, although I normally recommend using a second step so just before the serum a toner, the reason is that we want to prep the skin so the skin is ready to absorb all the active ingredients contained in the serum as the toner can ideally contain some lactic acid to gently exfoliate the skin or some salicylic acid to cleanse the pores so we know that whatever active ingredients is in the serum gets absorbed in the most efficient way.
Can I use Moisturiser without a Serum?
You can use a moisturiser without the serum but my suggestion would be to do the other way around, just use the serum first always and if your skin still needs hydration then you can use a moisturiser but what i recommend is to stay away from moisturisers unless your skin really craves it so for me it has a place after I apply some retinol and vitamin and my skin is still really dry otherwise adjust your serum.
What should we apply on face before makeup?
The last skincare step before makeup is always SPF, I never leave the house without applying my physical or mineral SPF, I normally wait a couple of minutes until it’s completely absorbed and then I do my makeup.
Can I use Serum before makeup?
The face serum can and should be used before the makeup, normally the serum is the step that comes after the cleanser and the toner so just before the SPF, the SPF is the last step before the makeup so the face serum has to be used before makeup.
