Should You Be Using A Serum, Oil or Essence?

serum oil or essence

As the beauty industry continuous to expand, innovate and research all sorts of marvellous lotions and potions, it can be difficult to  decipher exactly what does what, when and how!

Serums
Serums, are generally defined in terms of their high concentrations of active ingredients that, depending on your skin’s needs, target specific skincare issues; you may have recently been bombarded by words such hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and glycolic acid, all of which are the perfect serum ingredients.

Keep in mind that serums do differ from moisturisers and essences . Serums are formulated to penetrate the skin’s layer and deliver these active ingredients. If you’re looking for a product to reverse the effects of ageing, sun damage or simply brighten your skin then a serum may be what you need.

La Mer The Regenerating Serum

Formulated with a high concentration of The Miracle Broth™, The Regenerating Ferment™ and The Marine Peptide Ferment, this active yet comforting serum accelerates skin’s natural renewal process. Complementing skin’s natural production of “youth proteins,” collagen and elastin, the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores is diminished over time as a firmer, more lifted, beautifully ageless look is revealed.

Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum

This serum penetrates deep into the skin, promoting regular cell turnover to a reveal younger looking complexion. The oil free formula has a velvet soft finish and works to make skin feel smoother and even out texture. Regular use will leave you feeling fresh and looking healthier.

Oils
Oils can be used in conjunction with, or as an alternative to moisturisers. While some oils like rosehip, jojoba and argan can be used on their own to soften and repair damaged or dry skin, keep in mind  that some highly concentrated oils can irritate sensitive skin types.

Light weight oils can be used to brighten skin during the day and some oils like coconut have natural SPF capabilities – but generally speaking adding a few drops into your night time regimen can do miracles in all seasons for many skin types.

An essence product  is used to return nutrients and moisture to the skin and in turn prepare your skin to reap the benefits of your follow-up skincare products.
