Serum – Made up of molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and has a very high concentration of active ingredients. There are water-based serums and oil-based serums. Remember, water-based serums have smaller molecules and go under your moisturizer to nourish the inner layer of the skin. Oil-based have bigger molecule and go on top of your cream to keep whatever you put underneath moist. You can apply a Serum after cleansing but before moisturizing once a day and can be used both morning and night. Lastly, store your serums in a cool, dry place and use it up within six months to a year.

Know that Serums are not replacement for moisturizer, what it does is it can boost the hydrating effects of your moisturizer. Before purchasing a serum, please know your skin issue and skin type. There are serums for anti-aging, acne prevention and brightening serums. Find also a serum depending on your skin type; If you are dealing with wrinkles, look for a serum packed with Hyaluronic acid, For discoloration or hyper pigmentation issues, l highly recommend a serum with Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) , If you have acne prone/oily skin, look for a serum without oils. Yes serums tend to be pricier but hey for a decent reason! Being super potent and concentrated, a lil goes a long way – TOTES WORTH THE MONEY!

Serum That Is Perfect On Your Skin

Do not buy a skincare product just because your favorite You Tuber or beauty blogger says that this certain product is all good. Remember, her skin type is not the same as yours. Most likely what works for her may not work for your skin. Best rule of thumb – You have to track down a formula that’s right for your skin type. Get to know your ingredients first!

If you have ACNE-PRONE skin – Look for Vitamin C to enhance skin’s repair process, Zinc to soothes irritation, Salicylic acid to unclog pores and Retinol to reduce inflammation.

If you have DRY skin – Vitamin E is the answer. It is an anti-oxidant and improves skin elasticity. Hyaluronic acid to retain moisture and Glycolic Acid to retain moisture.

You wash your face but it never feels totally clean or clear. Can you relate? Cleansing your face is one of the most important step in skin care routine.

3 Face Washing Mistakes

Face wash mistakes
  • You are not washing your hands

It is very important to wash your hands before cleansing your face so that you will not transfer the dirt and bacteria to your face as you cleanse your face. Same goes if you are using a washcloth, please make sure also that these are clean or SKIP IT as it is too abrasive for your skin. They’re also a breeding ground for bacteria. (If you will really use one, please remember, it has to be laundered every time).

  • You are not using an oil cleanser

There are two different types of impurities: oil-based (sebum, makeup and sunscreen) and water based (sweat). Remember, if makeup or sunscreen is not removed from your skin, it’s a go signal for breakouts. That is why it is very important to remove impurities completely with an oil cleanser.

  • Using oil cleansers on damp skin

It should be applied onto dry skin. It also takes a bit of massaging to remove all the impurities; makeup, sunscreen and the like). Massage it for at least 20 seconds, DO NOT RUSH!

BONUS: You exfoliate too much

Exfoliating helps improve your skin’s tone and texture. Do it in moderation, otherwise you will irritate your skin. Do this at night as it is the time when your skin produces new cells. And for God’s sake, do not exfoliate more than three times a week! You’re welcome :*

With a few tweaks you’ll be on the path to clearer, more radiant skin. Share other face washing mistakes that you know in the comments below.
