Facial serums can make a big difference to your skin, with a range of formulas available for every skin type. Serums are generally lightweight, but super efficient and packed with a high percentage of active ingredients at optimum concentrations. They are the real workhorses behind any progressive skincare regimen. Face serums contain smaller molecules of the active ingredient for better absorbability and more immediate results. After introducing a serum, skin appearance and skin health are often rapidly improved.

Face Serum FAQs

What does face serum do?

Serums provide the skin with the active ingredients needed for a healthier looking appearance. 

Because facial serums are designed using a lightweight formula, containing a high concentration of the ingredient, the active ingredient is delivered very quickly.

How do I choose a serum?

We have a selection of serums to choose from at Dermastore. The face serum you choose should depend on your skin concerns. 

If you have dry skin, choosing a hydrating serum such as hyaluronic acid will help reduce dryness and result in a healthier skin appearance. For acne-prone or oily skin, salicylic acid and niacinamide serums can help you achieve clearer skin.

Do I need both serum and moisturiser?

Serums are most effective when followed by a moisturiser. Using a moisturiser after applying your facial serum will help create a protective barrier that ensures the active ingredients effectively reach the lower layers of the skin. 

Avoid applying moisturiser before using serums, as this can prevent the ingredients from reaching the skin. 

Should you use serum every day?

Most face serums should be applied to the skin every day in order to see effective results. Serums are usually applied twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening. 

Although, always check the product label to make sure the serum is appropriate for everyday use, as well as for use as a daytime or nighttime skin treatment.
