What is a serum and when to use it?

A good facial serum complements your day and night moisturiser, restores and replenishes skin. Serums usually have a particularly fine, silky texture and are therefore very pleasant to use, easy to apply and absorb quickly. Serums are very effective and a great addition to your skincare routine. This is especially true if you're combating signs of skin ageing or other skin concerns. A serum will be most effective if you apply it directly after an exfoliant. Do you have oily or combination skin? Then a serum may even replace your night cream, especially during summer.

What serum should I use

Depending on your skin type and its general condition, there are a number of serums we can recommend. Looking for a serum for dry skin? An oil-containing serum intensively nourishes the skin’s surface and can quickly soothe skin making it feel softer and more hydrated. This could also be a good option is you would like a serum for normal skin.

Do you have a similar skin type and want to target wrinkles and fine lines? Why not try an anti-ageing serum, such as the Resist Anti-Aging Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with antioxidants and vitamin C? It is particularly effective against signs of skin ageing and can even repair sun damage. If you are experiencing stubborn signs of ageing, we recommended one that includes retinol, such as the Resist Anti-Aging Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum. This light serum promotes healthier-looking skin and combats visible wrinkles.

A serum for combination skin should have a light texture that does not aggravate the skin or feel greasy. Effective serums for combination skin will help to restore balance and prevent signs of ageing. A good example of a serum for combination skin is the Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. This antioxidant serum helps to protect the skin from environmental stressors that can cause signs of ageing and other concerns.

Even oily skin can benefit from a good serum. Choose a light, water-based formula that is quickly absorbed by the skin. A serum rich in antioxidants makes your skin smoother and relieves redness. One such serum is the Resist Anti-Aging Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. Dry skin benefits from serums with a silky texture. Plant-based oils such as olive oil, grape seed oil and evening primrose oil provide intensive moisture to soften skin. A good serum for dry skin is the Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.

Serums for sensitive skin will help to soothe red and irritated skin. Look for a formula that contains skin-replenishing ingredients such as ceramides and antioxidants to help boost skin’s defences. Our Calm Repairing Serum is a good option if you are dealing with irritation and redness. It contains sea whip extract to soothe and ceramides to replenish and restore skin.
