What is a serum most often used for?

Serums are usually formulated with a specific skin concern or condition in mind, and are designed to be used in conjunction with other skin care products to optimize results. Some common uses for serums include improving the appearance of discoloration, wrinkles, acne, excess oil, redness, or rough surface texture. redness are an important and effective way to provide the skin with antioxidants to help prevent environmental damage, while hyaluronic acid serums are used to enhance skin hydration in all skin types. There are also serums that combine multiple ingredients to provide improvement for specific combinations of concerns (such as acne and visible signs of aging) as well as comprehensive anti-aging benefits. Serums can also be formulated for specific areas of the face, such as around the eyes or for the lips.

What is the difference between a serum and a cream or lotion?

The ideal serums for moisturizers are two different types of skin care formulations, and the key distinction is when they are applied. Serums should be applied before lotion or cream, or they can be used in place of a moisturizer if the serum is formulated with hydrating ingredients. Our Hydrating B5 serum can play the role of both since it provides the skin with essential moisture on its own; however, those with drier skin may choose to layer it beneath a hydrating lotion or cream. In many cases, a serum contains ingredients that target a particular skin concern.

What serums are best for dry skin?

The ideal serums for dry skin contain ingredients that provide the skin with much-needed hydration. Hyaluronic acid serums are amongst the most effective, since this natural sugar is capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water, as well as drawing moisture from the environment into the skin. This ingredient can be found in serums formulated specifically for replenishing skin moisture, such as Hydrating B5, and maintaining skin hydration levels, such as H.A. Intensifier. Hyaluronic Acid can also be used in multipurpose products that address discoloration, redness, sensitivity, and rough surface texture. If you have dry skin, it’s best to consult with a SkinCeuticals skincare professional who can recommend the ideal serum for your skin’s unique needs.

Can I use a serum if I have oily skin?

The key to finding the ideal serum when you have oily skin is looking at the ingredients. For example, Hydrating B5 is an ultra-lightweight, oil-free serum formulated with hyaluronic acid to provide the skin with essential moisture without a thick or heavy feel. This particular serum can be used by those with oily skin in place of a moisturizer. In cases of oily skin prone to acne, Blemish + Age Defense serum targets acne as well as visible signs of aging in one potent formulation. To discover the best serum for your oily skin, schedule an appointment with a SkinCeuticals skincare professional.
