Ask Adore: All About Face Serums
What are face serums?
Face serums are products designed to deliver high concentrations of skincare ingredients to your skin. Their miniscule molecules are able to penetrate deeply into the skin like no other skincare product. This is why a serum is used to address and treat specific skincare concerns, such as wrinkles and dull skin.
How often should I apply a serum to my skin?
A serum is typically applied in between cleansing and moisturizing as part of your skincare routine. That said, follow the instructions of your serum’s skincare brand, since it may vary from serum to serum.
What’s the difference between a serum and a moisturizer?
Simply put, serums and moisturizers are different but complement each other perfectly. While serums can have high concentrations of moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients to help deeply hydrate your skin, lotions and creams are richer and can help lock in all those incredible ingredients onto the skin. Because they’re lighter, serums go on your skin before moisturizers.
Is a serum suitable for my skin?
As long as you pick the right one, yes! Think about it: what’s your skin concern?
- Serums containing vitamin C help increase collagen production and reduce inflammation
- Serums with glycolic acid are mild exfoliators that help even out skin tone
- Serums formulated with hyaluronic acid help fight dry skin
Which serum should I add to my skincare routine?
Here’s what the Adore Cosmetics Expert Team swears by:
- ADORE COSMETICS – ADVANCED FIRMING EYE SERUM: This serum contains high concentrations of Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that renews your skin’s appearance and prevents further damage. Smells incredible, is light textured, absorbs quickly and – most importantly – deeply moisturizes the skin around your eyes without being too heavy.
- ADORE COSMETICS – CELLMAX ELITE FACIAL SERUM : This serum provides unique anti-aging results due to its exclusive CELLMAX formulation, an innovative mixture of anti-aging active ingredients.
- ADORE COSMETICS – ESSENCE FACIAL FIRMING SERUM: If you don’t have enough time to pamper your skin with a facial, this serum is the right way to go. The key to its effectiveness lies in Adore Cosmetic’s exclusive Plant Stem Cell formula and breakthrough anti-aging nutrients including Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide for skin cell regeneration.
- ADORE COSMETICS – PERFORMER SCULPTING NECK SERUM: This one has a powerful anti-aging skincare formula that minimizes those dreaded telltale signs of aging in the neck and décolletage area thanks to the tightening and firming action of Adore’s iconic plant stem cells formula. This serum deeply hydrates, plumps and soothes the skin.
