The world of beauty products is filled with numerous choices that can vastly improve your skin, hair and more. Confusion exists over serums and moisturizers, what each one does, in what order to apply and what are the benefits of each. Most important, do you need both?
The two products are different but a powerful, effective skincare routine uses both. Here’s some information to help you understand what these products do for your skin, how they are different and how using them together can benefit your skin in amazing ways from wrinkle reduction to a radiant glow.
Moisturizers and serums serve different purposes. Generally, serums are traditionally water based while creams usually have an oil base. They also have different textures with a cream being rich while some serums are lighter.
The water based serum makes it more easily absorbed into the skin allowing the active ingredients to sink through for a powerful effect. Creams have oil and water mixtures and moisturize the skin while also helping the skin with other additional ingredients.
Rich, emollient moisturizers are great for people with skin that tends to be dry and lacks moisture. The rich nature of the cream helps give hydration to the skin preventing it from drying as easily. Creams deliver moisture for all of the face and help greatly with flaking and very dry skin. Of course, not all creams are made equal and the ingredients greatly matter.
Serums are very different from creams. They can come in small glass bottles or pump bottles. Their water base allows them to quickly have an effect on the skin and penetrate better. They are used less for delivering moisture but to be light and layered to deliver ingredients and are usually great for all skin types.
They are usually highly concentrated to target inflammation, fine lines, crow’s feet, sagging skin, and toning in the skin. Dry skin works with serum but may need the rich properties of a cream to seal in and provide moisture to the skin. Serums penetrate while moisturizing cream locks in the effects and provides a protective layer between your skin and harmful elements such as free radicals. Many higher quality moisturizing creams contain ingredients scientifically proven to increase collagen that helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
While serums and creams work differently, they work wonderfully together as part of a beauty and skin care routine. Serums absorb quickly and are applied first, as opposed to the other way around. The water base is followed by the oil base. It primes the skin on the face and prepares it for the rich cream that comes after, both working synergistically to minimize lines and wrinkles. The serum penetrates to improve elasticity, reduce inflammation, and provide a structural lift, while the cream locks in the effects.
