If your skincare routine is still sans serum, it’s time to invest in one – pronto. Many people ask, “If I’m already moisturising twice a day, why the need for an extra product?” The truth is that a serum contains more concentrated active ingredients (and in higher amounts) than your moisturiser does. These ingredients (think along the lines of retinol, antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients) are essential for maintaining a youthful complexion and slowing down the ageing process, as well as for treating skin conditions like pigmentation and acne.
All-in-all, a serum boosts your skincare regime, and provides you with the extra ingredients you need to reveal your best skin.
