Hey my loves!
Today I want to talk about serums, do they really work? Is it worth the money? I’m here to tell you that Yes! They are worth it and I’ll explain why. We all know by now how important the skin is and that we must make sure to take care of our skin first either to have young and beautiful skin or for makeup lovers out there like myself to help your makeup look flawless, it simply all comes down to the skin. I feel like serums have been a trending topic lately as they should be, there are so many benefits to a good serum, and there’s so many different serums to target your specific skin concern.
- Serums have the highest concentration of active ingredients, they can contain up to 70% of active ingredients compared to cleansers and moisturizers which contain about 5-10% of active ingredients.
- They actually show results! Since they have such a high concentration of active ingredients they penetrate deep into the skin, releasing those amazing ingredients, vitamins and minerals that are good for your skin.Whether you use a serum for anti aging, hydration, dark spots, you will see results over time since it seeps into your skin and doesn’t just sit on the skin.
- Serums contain zero fillers, which means serums contain pure natural ingredients and are better for your skin than any other skin care product. They don’t contain mineral oils or parabens, only vitamins, peptides and good minerals that your skin needs. Serums are delivery systems that are meant to deliver those active ingredients deep into the skin.
- Most serums are water based which means that they are also noncomedogenic and won’t clog your pores or cause breakouts, making them great for any skin types especially acne prone skin. Since they are water based they absorb right into the skin.
Yes, most serums can be pretty pricey, at least compared to moisturizers and cleansers, however investing in a good serum will go a long way. Since they are highly concentrated a little will go a long way, you won’t have to worry about them causing breakouts, and you will actually see benefits and improvements in your skin. Not only that if you have a good serum you really don’t need a ton of different moisturizers, no need to go out and spend even more money. I’ve been using serums in my skin care routine for about 2 years now and since I have dry skin, my skin has been nice and hydrated and my makeup just looks so much better. I used to just wash my face and maybe a moisturizer but now I know how to care for my skin and what works for me and I don’t suffer from dry patches or irritation on my face and I used to use so many different moisturizers and they really didn’t do much for my skin until I started using serums and now my skin feels amazing!
Along as you have a good serum that works for you, you really don’t even need to use a moisturizer it will hydrate your skin and more, which it’s basically a 2 in 1 product. My favorite serum right now is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum $36, you can find it at Ulta and Sephora. I hope this inspires you to go out a try a serum and see how it works for yourself. Serums have worked for me to keep my skin hydrated and they’ve worked for many others. Thank you for reading my post!
