3 Face Serum Benefits and Why They Should Be in Your Skin Care Routine

When you add face serums to your skin care routine, you’re adding a powerful ally for a glowing, healthy complexion. These lightweight elixirs easily sink into the skin to deliver powerful skin-boosting ingredients, like antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, that help keep your skin looking its best by hydrating, brightening and protecting.

What Is a Face Serum?

A face serum differs from products like our lotions and Hair & Body Oil in several ways. Lotions often contain large-molecule components that are intended to hydrate the skin's surface, protect it from damage, and occasionally even stop moisture loss. Face serums have small molecules that assist the skin in absorbing the concentrated mixture of active ingredients more quickly and effectively, all while drawing moisture into the skin to leave it plump and hydrated.

Face Serum Benefits

Many beauty experts agree that face serums are the secret to radiant, glowing skin. Here are just a few reasons to make facial serums a key component of your skin care regimen.

1. Highly Concentrated

The purpose of a facial serum is to deliver active ingredients designed to moisturize or form a protective barrier on the skin. What you’re left with are potent concoctions of active ingredients. Because of that concentration, serums like our Daily Antioxidant Serum are able to drench your skin with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and astaxanthin. Vitamin C will brighten and even out your skin, hyaluronic acid helps your skin stay soft and supple, and astaxanthin assists in preventing environmental damage to your skin.

2. Lightweight

Unlike heavy creams and moisturizers, facial serums are lightweight and fast-absorbing, making them perfect for layering under your other skin care products. People with oily and combination skin often find that face serum is the perfect product to wear on its own, with no lotion or cream required. Our serum moisturizes but won’t ever leave your face feeling greasy. If you’re using serum and skipping moisturizer, apply a few extra drops over slightly damp skin. If your skin has already dried after washing, you can add a little bit of moisture back with dampened reusable cotton rounds.

3. Multifunctional

If you have more than one skin concern, you don’t need to find a different serum to solve each problem. At The Earthling Co., we are always striving to make your life easier, which is where our daily antioxidant serum comes in. As we mentioned before, this serum includes vitamin C to brighten and hyaluronic acid to keep the skin supple. Having one multifunctional serum will eliminate the need for various products and in return, will save you money and time.

How To Use Face Serum

Apply serum after cleansing and before moisturizing your face. You can wear serum on its own or layer it under other products. If you have time, give yourself a gentle face massage when you apply the serum to boost circulation and infuse a fresh flow of oxygen into your skin. Never apply serum over lotion because lotion can block the serum from absorbing into the skin. Ideally, give the serum a minute or two to sink in, and then apply moisturizer.
