Face serums have become the talk of the town as of late because of how effective they can be. While some say you should begin incorporating serums in your skincare routine starting from 30s, we would say there’s no right time to start! Teens nowadays have also begun incorporating safe face serums in your routine because at the end of the day, it’s about what you want from you skin. If face serums help you get good skin and keep your skin balanced, why not?
What are Face Serums?
Face serums are a formula that contain a high level of a particular active. That active ingredient can vary depending on which serum it is that you’re using and why! Serums are also different because they target a specific skin concern and they do not contain a multitude of ingredients like a moisturizer or an exfoliant might.
However, here’s a tip that can ensure whichever face serum you’re using, it does show the results: never skip on the sunblock. Serums contain actives and these can become ineffective if the sun exposure is too high. Make sure you get the most of your face serums and keep them locked under a good moisturizer and a sunblock.
The AM/PM Formulas
If you want to incorporate face serums in your skincare routine, begin by knowing the AM/PM formulas and when to use them
The PM formulas are the day serums. This serum is usually the Vitamin C serum which contains anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants protect your skin from free radicals making it an excellent skin protecting face serum to use in the day. Combining a Vitamin C serum – like the best Vitamin C serum from Conatural – with your sunblock can protect your skin from photo damage. This kind of damage is caused by pollutants and sun exposure which causes fine lines and wrinkles.
The AM formulas are the night formulas. These ones usually contain retinol and retinol makes your skin extra sensitive to sunlight making it a poor choice for the day. Retinol is often found in anti-aging serums that target signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Serums that are exfoliating are also AM formulas usually.
Use Any Time Serums
