To use a serum, first decide what it is you want from the serum, something to lift, add volume, smooth fine lines, or even pigmentation and skin tone.
The active ingredients in a serum reflects what the serum is capable of doing - some ingredients are able to improve skin tone, while others are specifically working on hydration. ‘Active’ means the ingredient will be working on your skin. Ideally you want 4 active ingredients in a serum, and if there are peptides, they need to be coupled with other peptides to work effectively.
Apply your serum to the area – or whole face, neck, décolletage, and hands, then apply a moisturiser over the top once the serum has dried. The moisturiser will ‘lock in’ the serum and create a barrier to protect the active compounds while they work on your skin. If you’re using a serum in the morning, apply a moisturiser over the top then your normal makeup routine as usual. This is also a great way to protect your skin from free-radical damage from SPF, makeup, air pollutants, throughout the day.
