It can be oily, but it is not a facial oil; it can be watery, but it is not a toner or essence. So, what exactly is a face serum?
Simply put, a face serumor facial serum is a more concentrated formulation of several potent, active ingredients that help address specific concerns on a deeper level. From anti-aging serumsto anti-pollution face serums, anti-acne serums, and herbal skin serums - they come in all kinds of formulas and categories.
As layering has become the latest skincare trend, the popularity of face serums has also risen, and rightly so. Experts believe in natural serums and treatments as they deliver active ingredients most efficiently to the skin because of their ability to be quickly absorbed by the skin. The small molecules of active ingredients such as Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and AHAs penetrate deep into the skin, playing an important role in minimizing blemishes, dark spots, pigmentation, and fights signs of aging, dry skin, acne-prone skin, and dull skin.
Since they are so light, face serums are a great buy for people with oily and acne-prone skin. Trust us. Face serums are absorbed easily and don’t feel greasy at all.
