What is The Difference Between a Moisturizer and a Serum?
This is a common question asked and one I have been asked numerous times over the years. Is it necessary to use both? Can I use one or the other?
Serums whilst adding a degree of moisture are primarily designed to absorb and penetrate into the three layers of skin, the Epidermis (top layer), the Dermis (the middle layer) and the bottom layer known as the Hypodermis. The tiny molecules present in oils make this possible.
Moisturizers are generally thicker creams or lotions with larger molecules that may only penetrate the top layer of skin where they can hydrate the skin and seal in moisture.
Serums can really benefit skin conditions at “ground root level” such as skin elasticity, wrinkles and dehydration.
Serums work best when applied after cleansing and toning the skin when the skin is still slightly damp.
Follow with your regular moisturizer which you can think of as locking in your serum and all the nutritional benefits in the layers.
Use serums whenever you feel your skin needs an extra boost or incorporate it into your daily routine morning and night or once a day (night preferably when the skin is at rest).
