Between oils, essences, moisturisers and all the other steps in your skincare routine, it can be hard to keep track of what’s essential and what’s simply the latest trend.

Ultra-lightweight and packed full of active skincare ingredients, serums are a must-have skincare product for every skin type. They are the cocktails of the beauty world, crafted to suit all of your skin’s needs.

What does a serum do to the skin?

Unlike your facial oil or day creams, the best serums are usually formulated without emollients, which means they’re able to absorb more deeply and easily into your skin, instead of sitting on the surface. They form a protective barrier of hydration and seal in the nutritional benefits of all your other beauty products.

Who should use a skin serum?

You should be using a skin serum if any of the following apply...

You want to address a specific concern
Serums are a smart skincare solution, targeting both specific and broader skin concerns. Is your skin looking dull or feeling dehydrated? Or maybe you’re battling acne scarring or dark spots. Either way, a skin serum can absolutely help.

You live in a polluted area or spend a lot of time outdoors
Protecting your skin from environmental aggressors is an important step in any skincare routine. An antioxidant serum works to prevent free-radical damage to skin cells, helping to slow the signs of ageing and keeping dry, dull skin looking happy and healthy!

You want effective anti-ageing skincare
Serums work to target deep layers of the skin. So if you're someone who wants to minimise the signs of ageing - a skin serum is the skincare solution you’re after! You’ll want to use one daily as part of your skincare routine.

You want to boost the results of your current skincare
Whatever your current skincare routine looks like, a skin serum works to deeply nourish your skin. It supports all your other skincare, boosting their performance and giving you even better results!
