The summer months are brilliant for tanning the skin (safely!), and giving our complexions that much needed boost of radiance, which we lack in the winter. However, the combination of the sun, heat and environmental aggressors can leave skin feeling parched and sore. The answer? A thirst quenching face serum.
Serums are a step in our skincare routines we can often forget about. When we’re tired, it’s the standard cleanse, tone and moisturise, and when we’ve got all the time in the world, we pop on a mask and leave that to do its work. The reality is that serums often get left out, even though they’re an absolutely essential step if you want healthy and glowing skin.
When Should Serum be used?
Serums should be used after toning and before applying your moisturiser. They are usually super hydrating and contain a powerful cocktail of ingredients and antioxidants, which the moisturiser helps to seal in.
