Facial serums are wonderful for the skin yet often overlooked. Many people have not heard of a serum and if they have, they think it acts the same as a moisturizer and can use one or the other. Others are afraid of using a serum because they think it will make them break out. Neither of these ideas is correct and facial serums are a wonderful step to add to any skincare routine. In fact, we at Acne Skin Site would recommend adding a facial serum to your skincare routine.

Facial serums are loaded with wonderful antioxidants like Vitamin C, which is known to play a key role in the production of collagen. Vitamin C aids in anti-aging, and also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and minimizes blemishes and acne. Vitamin C is a key ingredient in many skin care products. Vitamin E is also found in many serums and is known to protect and repair skin damage from the sun and other environments. Because the body does not create Vitamin E on its own, it is very important to use skin care products rich in this Vitamin and to also eat foods rich in Vitamin E. Certain foods that are loaded with Vitamin E are avocados, nuts, and vegetable oil.

You can also find serums that are oil-free if you are concerned with breaking out or clogging your pores. That is the beautiful thing about skincare these days. Companies take into account that men and women don’t want to break out!

You should apply your facial serum after you have cleansed and lightly dried your face and allow it to be absorbed into the skin for 3-5 minutes before applying your moisturizer. A serum will not block your moisturizer from being absorbed – If anything, it will help in the skin absorbing the moisturizer and retaining hydration. Certain serums will gently exfoliate your skin as well, which will make your complexion brighter and more dewy looking in appearance! And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want their skin looking like porcelain?! There are many wonderful serums out there, it’s just a matter of how much you want to spend and what added skin benefits you are looking to gain from a serum. Serums can be less expensive to quite expensive so do your research and your skin will thank you! Feel free to let us know if you have a favorite as well!

    I especially love The Body Shop’s Vitamin E serum and their pre-serum which is the “Drops of Youth”. The vitamin E serum is loaded with wheatgerm oil which is excellent form of anti-oxidants and the drops of youth is really really awesome it leaves your skin soft smooth and supple. It makes your make up last longer too!

    USANA’s Sens Facial Serum is wonderful! It absorbs quickly and hydrates skin longer than any other serum I’ve tried. Paired with USANA Sens gentle cleanser, day cream &/or night cream, having beautiful skin is easy. 🙂

    Serums are stronger than creams. They suits well for an oily to combination type of skin, without giving a glossy look.

    I have been using Estée Lauder’s Advance Night Repair & Idealist Pore Minimizing for a decade now. Went for a skin analyzing test few weeks ago & was told I had an almost perfect complexion! The only thing that made it less perfect were the patches from my sensitive skin 🙁

    I’m 31, Asian & dry/combination with very sensitive skin btw 🙂
