I know it has been a while since you have seen one of my posts up here. A lady often thinks she can be superwoman and juggle everything but life often throws us curve balls that forces us to simmer down and take things easy…so I hope everyone has had a fabulous festive season and that you are well on your way to achieving your New Year’s resolutions!
So I recently read an article in a magazine which I actually found quite useful because I for one did not realise how important serums are (yeah yeah – no judging!). I sure learnt something new and hope to get my hands on one of these very soon.
So, what is a serum?
Well, for those of you who do not know – a facial serum is a liquid or gel consistency and the major difference between a serum and a moisturiser is the fact that serums contain active ingredients and are absorbed into your skin when applied.
Are serums expensive?
Not all serums are expensive, they do however cost more than moisturisers. The ingredients in the serum is what makes it so expensive.
Why should we use serums?
The serum deeply penetrates your skin, therefore it works from the inside out. This makes it more effective than products that only work on the top layer of the skin. Serums are to be used if you have specific skin concerns, like if you want to reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles or uneven skin tone. It can also be used on rough-textured skin or oily skin.
Find a serum that’s suitable for you!
I definitely have these on my wish list to try…
- Pond’s Flawless Radiance Anti-Spot Intensive Serum: I suffer from mild acne spots now and then and I find it quite difficult to get rid of the mark it often leaves behind. I definitely want to give this one a go, and for R109.95 for a 30ml tube – I would think it’s worth a try!
- Clarins Bright Plus Tri-Active Brightening Serum: this serum is apparently known for giving you back your glow. This one is a bit on the pricey side, it costs R710.00 for a 30ml bottle but I am sure it will be a worthwhile investment!
I hope you found today’s post useful – let’s all try and be serum savvy!
Till next time,
