Mature skin tends to be drier and less resilient than younger skin, which means you need to be even more careful about what you put on it than if you were younger. If your body produces less sebum, the natural oil that moisturizes the skin, and collagen production starts to slow down, using lotions alone won’t be sufficient. Adding facial serums to your skincare routine will give you the extra hydration you need without clogging pores or aggravating sensitive skin.
The benefits of using a facial serum
You may think that your skin has always been this way and the best you can do is just to keep it moisturized. But the truth is, our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner and more fragile which makes it more susceptible to environmental damage like dryness, wrinkles and sagging. With so much happening on your face, you need to use a facial serum. A facial serum will help build up your skin’s natural protective barrier against outside aggressors by providing essential nutrients and hydration deep within the layers of your skin.
One way to combat these signs of aging is with a serum that addresses your specific skin type. This can be done by first finding out what your skin type is (oily, dry, or combination), then you can choose from the many facial serums online in the market. It’s important to note that some serums are more suited for certain skin types than others, so be sure to find one that will work for you.
The best way to apply facial serum
Applying the facial serum is the best way to take care of mature skin. Not only does it help diminish wrinkles, but also it provides antioxidants to protect against the damaging effects of free radicals and environmental pollutants.
Serums come in many different formulas and strengths, so find one that suits your skin’s needs if you have dry skin, look for serums with moisturizing properties; if you have oily skin, look for serums that are oil-free or have mattifying properties; if you’re acne-prone or have dark spots from sun damage, find serums that are designed to treat these problems. You can use them day or night and just apply one pump to your clean face after cleansing and before moisturizing.
