Formulation

Serum is made up of smaller molecules that penetrate layers, deeper than an average moisturizer and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. Moreover, Serums are water or emulsion-based formulations and hence, they have a light gel, watery and non-sticky texture that absorbs quickly into the skin, quenching your skin’s thirst for moisturization and leaving it with a fresh, dewy smooth finish.

Hero Product

A serum is a multi-purpose product that eliminates the need for hydrators, moisturizers, lotions and cold creams. This single product helps with a host of skincare issues like fighting dullness and dryness, combating acne and pigmentation, giving your skin a healthy and hydrated look. It is recommended to use a face serum at least twice a day to maximize its beauty potential.

Skin type friendly

A good Serum is suitable for all skin types. It can provide light weight moisturization for oily skin, rejuvenation and radiance for dull skin. It can also help reduce spots, pigmentation and uneven skin tone. For acne prone skin, serum with Salicylic Acid works best, whereas for dry skin Hyaluronic Acid is a better bet. Also, look out for Vitamin C, it is a super antioxidant ingredient that removes, spots, dullness, uneven skin tone and brightens the skin.

High ROI

There’s a good reason why Serum is an absolute skincare favourite for most of us. With umpteen benefits, accessible price point, active ingredients, easy application and multi-purpose usage it offers significantly more benefits for its price as compared to other skincare products.
