They can handle the job that no moisturizer can!
Everyone has a skincare routine. For some, it might involve several steps and others might be none at all. Chances are most of us fall somewhere in between. We are all trying to find the most efficient and effective way to glowing skin. So you might be wondering if a skincare serum is a necessary step in your routine. After all, your moisturizer touts all it’s superb ingredient claims, so shouldn’t that be enough, do you really need a super serum?
In short, the answer is no. While a great moisturizer can contain the highest caliber of active ingredients, it’s purpose prohibits it from delivering them all to your thirsty skin. Moisturizers form a thin film on your skin. They work as a barrier to lock in moisture. They include ingredients that work to attract water vapor from the air to provide continuous moisturization. So while your moisturizer might be one of the best on the market, the sheer nature of its job is to form that barrier, which unfortunately can prevent your active ingredients from reaching your skin.
Serums, on the other hand, are are super concentrated. Your skin can drink them all in because of they are composed of tiny molecules. WEB MD shares, “Serums contain the most potent dose of anti-aging ingredients — antioxidants, peptides, and skin brighteners such as kojic acid — you can find in nonprescription products. “They’re the true workhorses of any product line,”.
So don’t skip this powerful step in your routine. Once you deliver the powerful ingredients that a super serum offer, you can seal it all in with your favorite moisturizer!
