Do you want to incorporate a face serum into your skincare routine but are unsure of how which one to choose? Let’s walk through five different types of serums and how they can benefit you.
5 Different Types of Face Serums
Anti-Aging Serums – These serums can help prevent or lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These usually contain active ingredients such as retinol (vitamin A) and niacinamide (vitamin B3).
Brightening Serums – These serums are designed to target hyperpigmentation and reduce discoloration. These serums often contain ascorbic acid (vitamin C), an antioxidant that inhibits the enzyme responsible for melanin production.
Hydrating Serums – Hydrating serums provide an extra boost of moisture for your skin. They’re used in conjunction with regular moisturizers. Hyaluronic acid is the most common ingredient found in hydrating serums.
Exfoliating Serums – To prevent your skin from falling victim to dullness and breakouts. Exfoliation comes in two forms: physical and chemical. A physical exfoliant is a grainy scrub that can be used to manually remove dead skin cells. A chemical exfoliant is a less abrasive alternative that is typically produced in serum form.
Firming Serums – Firming serums target sagging skin. A decrease in collagen, elastin, and ceramide (moisture) production in your more mature years is often the cause behind loose, coarse skin. Thus, incorporate a serum that is formulated with ingredients that will promote collagen production.
