Serums have become more popular in recent years for many reasons. Skincare dates back to roughly 6,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt. Many skincare products have different benefits, but serums offer a wide variety in a simpler form, making them easy to add to your skincare routine.
Serums are designed to protect, hydrate, and nourish your skin. “Serums are thin-viscosity topical products that contain concentrated amounts of active ingredients,” states Dr. Tsippora Shainhouse. Many people ask why you can’t just use a moisturizer or liquid spray, and the simple answer is that since serum is more concentrated, it penetrates the skin faster, and you see results faster.
Some basic skincare products to keep in your cabinet (or your counter) are a cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, moisturizer, and SPF (that you can find in our spring box!). Being able to wipe away all your grime for the day is crucial to keeping skin healthy and restored before bed. Keeping a clean pillowcase reduces blemishes, bacterial infections, and keeps your hair clean. A lot of dermatologists recommend switching a pillowcase every few days, or switching to a silk pillowcase to reduce all conditions listed above.
As a skincare enthusiast, I learned it was hard to know which order your skincare goes on. After lots of research from estheticians, talking to pharmaceutical companies, and my own experience, I’ve found the easiest order to apply your skincare. The order of application makes a difference in how effective your skincare routine is.
Implementing these simple changes in your routine can reduce bacteria, create better habits, and help promote a healthy eyelid ecosystem.
