To get flawless-looking skin, you just need to spend a couple of minutes every morning and night! In this post, we are going to learn what you should apply on the face before bed to wake up with beautiful-looking skin. Ideally, you should apply a good night serum on clean skin to get gorgeous and beautiful skin.
Why Apply Serum at Night?
Serum is a skincare product that has small molecules that can penetrate skin deeper and target a lot of skin problems apart from moisturizing and hydrating the skin. Serum is applied right after cleansing and before moisturizing in skin care routine. A good facial serum can deliver powerful, skin-beneficial ingredients directly into the skin. Serum is particularly made up of smaller molecules that penetrate deep into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of potent ingredients. This makes a serum a excellent tool for targeting skincare concerns, signs of ageing, dullness etc. However, it is important to apply a moisturiser right after application of serum to lock in serum into the skin.
How Often Should I Use Serum?
You can use face serum either twice a day, that is morning and night or only at night.
Can Oily Skin Use Face Serum?
Yes, facial serums are lightweight in consistency and often are water based which means most of them wouldn’t clog pores or cause acne. To be on the safer side, always check the label and avoid oil-based serums.
Which Serum is Right for Me?
- Oily skin- If you fall into this category, look for serums with vitamin C as active ingredient. It boosts collagen production, improves skin’s natural repair system and reduces inflammation. Retinol is also a wonderful ingredient which keeps the skin younger as it contains antioxidants and reduces inflammation. Serums with zinc calms down skin irritation and controls oil production. Serums with salicylic acid unclog pores and de-congest skin, clearing out acne-causing bacteria.
- Dry skin- Look for serums enriched with vitamin E, it forms a barrier around the cells and keeps them healthy and well hydrated. This is a true skin supplement and protects skin from harmful pollutants, UV rays and ageing. Vitamin E fights and neutralises the effects of free radicals. It also reduces the appearance of scars. You can apply vitamin E serum then a moisturiser and lastly, always apply a good sunscreen to guard your skin during the day. Here’s a list of 10 best serums for dry skin.
- Dull skin- Look for serums with antioxidants like green tea extract, ferulic acid, resveratrol. These ingredients fight free radicals, it increases the potency of sunscreen, and encourages cellular repair and healing by night.
Since serums are very powerful, always remember a little product is enough, more is not always good. Using generously can irritate sensitive skin. Always patch-test a serum 24 hours prior to application.
