What Are The Benefits of Adding a Serum to Your Skincare Routine?

SCRUMPTIOUS SERUMS

Welcome aboard! L’OCCITANE is your faithful guide through the wonderful world of nature-inspired skincare. Today, we’re taking a spin through the spectacle that is face serum. You’ve probably heard of it, but for those still confused about what exactly the point of serum is, buckle up. We’ve got all the juicy details on this powerful little beauty secret.

What Is A Serum?

LET'S START WITH THE BASICS

A serum is a concentrated liquid packed with active ingredients that target specific skin concerns. The molecules in a serum are super small, making it easier for your skin to absorb them. It allows the serum to repair or protect your skin from a number of different issues, from aging to hyperpigmentation. It’s an essential step in any beauty routine because it targets parts of your skin your other products just can’t reach.

How Do You Use One?

ORDER IS IMPORTANT...

...when it comes to a beauty routine, because each step builds upon the step before it. A serum should be used on clean, dry skin, so make sure to cleanse and tone before you apply. And a little goes a long way – all you need is a pea-sized drop. Massage it gently all over your face and neck. Let it dry and then apply your oil if you use one, and then your cream. Depending on the serum, you should be able to apply it both day and night.
