HOW TO CORRECTLY USE A SERUM
Published May 29, 2020
Serums are the ally of choice for the skin, but they are often left out of women’s beauty routines. In addition to meeting the skin’s specific needs, it is fully complementary to other skin care products. Here are more details about serum and a few tips on how to use it correctly.
WHAT IS A SERUM
A serum is a skincare product with a high concentration of active ingredients, which is applied after cleansing the skin and just before a cream. FILORGA serums contain additional active ingredients that complement the cream to optimize its benefits. Serums have a more lightweight and fluid texture than a cream, so that other products can be layered on top and the skin can absorb them.
WHAT IS A SERUM FOR
Serums help to complement the action of a moisturizing cream to meet the skin's specific needs. They can be used to tackle occasional concerns such as a change in seasons, or during a time of stress or fatigue. This step can therefore be adapted to the skin's current needs. Applying a serum before your cream also helps your skin to absorb the next products in your routine and therefore enhances their effectiveness.
HOW TO CHOOSE A SERUM
In the same way as a day cream or an eye contour treatment, both of which are essentials in our bathroom, a serum is a true beauty asset that must not be forgotten in our routine.
In addition to being an intensive skin care product with a higher concentration of active ingredients, serum also prepares the skin for its daily care while reinforcing its effectiveness. It is therefore essential to choose a serum that matches your skin type and needs.
If you want to restore your skin’s firmness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, you should use an anti-aging serum composed of hyaluronic acid like HYDRA-HYAL SERUM.
If you want to reduce dark spots and even out your complexion, choose a Vitamin C based serum like C-RECOVER.
You also can select a serum as a complement to your current face and neck cream. For example, if you use the HYDRA-FILLER cream, but also need to correct the first signs of wrinkles, then use the TIME-FILLER INTENSIVE serum as a complementary product to correct all types of wrinkles.
If your favorite daily face cream is OXYGEN-GLOW, but you're stressed more than usual and imperfections are now appearing on your face, then use the AGE-PURIFY INTENSIVE serum, the double correction serum [wrinkles + blemishes] for smoother and clearer skin.
You love your TIME-FILLER 5-XP face and neck cream, but as the seasons have changed, your skin does not look as beautiful and more tired, then use the NCEF-INTENSIVE serum to give the skin a boost and improve its quality.
HOW TO APPLY A SERUM
A serum can be applied in the morning and/or evening on clean skin before your day/night cream to boost the effectiveness of the skin care applied afterwards on the entire face and neck.
Only a few drops of serum are needed for the ingredients to penetrate quickly. Massage from the inside toward the outside, applying pressure to the face to stimulate circulation. Once the skin is dry and the serum is absorbed, you can apply your daily skin care.
We hope these tips will help you get the most out of your daily serum treatment!
