Whether you’re already using a serum, or you’re yet to add the wonder product to your skincare, you’ll want to know about the incredible benefits a serum can do for your skin. Read on for three reasons why a serum needs to be part of your everyday skincare regime… 1. Serums penetrate deeper than a moisturiser Moisturisers are great for keeping your skin hydrated, but serums work by penetrating through the deeper layers of the skin to deliver potent ingredients for maximum benefit. Serums are made up of smaller molecules than most moisturisers, meaning the product can go deeper into the skin. Vitamin B3, Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol and Bromelain are just some of the many ingredients found in serums that can work wonders for your complexion. 2. Serums work for all skin types If you have oily skin, you may be concerned about using a product that works to lock in hydration in the skin. In fact, oily skin is not a sign of over-hydration, and your skin may actually be in need of moisture which is where a serum may be useful. For acne-prone skin types, as well as locking in moisture, serums are also great for reducing inflammation that can cause congestion. 3. They can be used to treat specific skin concerns With up to 70% more active ingredients than other skincare products, serums are one of the most powerful products you can use to achieve maximum results. There’s also plenty of choice, which means you can use a serum to treat dehydrated skin, dry skin, dull skin and more. – If you are new to Total Body Concept then our Guide to Healthy Skin is a great place to start on your skincare journey with us!
