Why Serums Are Your Best Bet for Skin Clarity

Hello there, Skinlovers! Have you actually wondered what serums do to your skin?

The usual correct order of applying skincare is like this:

  • Cleanser
  • Toner
  • Serums
  • Eye cream
  • Moisturiser

However, serums are often left out of the basic skincare ritual because they tend to be costly despite them packaged in small bottles – why not buy a big bottle of facial cleanser instead of this tiny bottle that you can use up quickly?

Don’t scrimp on serums for as they say – big things come in small packages! Here are some fast facts as to why they make a powerful addition to your beauty and skincare regimen:


Compared to lotions and moisturisers, they don’t have petrolatum or mineral oil that retain much moisture. However, the water-based formulation allows for fast absorption and penetration into the deeper layers of the skin. Despite this, the other active ingredients found in serums provide the hydration factor.

Ingredients & Potency

You don’t need a big bottle of serum because its active ingredients have high dosage and potency – they directly attack skin troubles such as wrinkles, discolouration, acne etc., without your other skin products interfering. Here are some of the ingredients you can usually expect and what they do to your skin:

  • Vitamin C: Prevents UVA/UVB damage
  • Retinol:  Activates faster cell turnover
  • Salicylic acid and Benzoyl peroxide: Acne prevention
  • Hyaluronic acid: Continual feeding the skin with this for two weeks can dramatically improve skin elasticity

How to apply

After cleansing and toning, apply a pea-sized amount and evenly pat across your face.


Being oil-free, serums aid in deep-layer action while providing a non-greasy and velvety finish to the upper layers. With ingredients having high concentrations, they provide intensive nutrition and bring fast results.
