Introducing Your New Serum Wardrobe

July 01, 2024

When it comes to your daily skincare regimen, there is a lot riding on your serum. All skincare steps are important, but the serum skip is doubly so because it’s the step that addresses your individual skin concerns. This might be brightening or helping to fade pigmentation, perhaps it’s boosting moisture, or softening lines. Whatever your goals, choosing the right serum, and using it properly, are the first steps to achieving them.

Before we look at the best serum for you, let’s recap why you should use a serum and what exactly it’s doing.

What are face serums?

Essentially face serums are a formulation of highly active ingredients delivered in a watery format that’s layered onto skin after cleansing and before applying moisturizer. These potent actives have been formulated in a way to boost penetration, making a serum one of the most hardworking steps in your routine.

How should I use a face serum?

Most serums are designed for daily or twice-daily use. As a rule, daytime serums should help protect skin from your environment, while nighttime serums should kickstart repair.

If you haven’t used a serum before, they might seem intimidating, but they couldn’t be easier to use. After cleansing, pat your skin dry with a clean towel, and then dispense a pipette of your chosen serum into the palm of your hand, press your hands together to distribute and then press onto your skin. Ensure an even application to your entire face and don’t forget your neck and décolleté. Allow 5-minutes for your serum to settle, pop on your eye cream, and then follow with moisture and, if daytime, an SPF.

So, what face serum should I use?

You must understand your skin’s needs or challenges before choosing the appropriate serum. To make things easier, bareMinerals SKIN RESCUE Pure Potent Serums features four innovations specifically formulated to deliver certain results.
