Hello autumn, you have definitely arrived! The days are getting darker, the leaves are turning yellow & red and our skin needs a little extra love. The change of the seasons has an impact on our body and mind. We are here to help you hydrate your skin, and prepare it for the winter to come.
Serums vs moisturizers
A lot of us have heard about serums, but also many of don't know what to do with, or how or when to use them. A serum is a oil or water-based liquid product, that is usually highly concentrated in actives ingredients like vitamins and antioxidants to help your skin radiate. The right serum can help you to reduce dark spots, redness, acne, skin irritation and dark circles. Serums penetrate the skin easier and are often able to reach the deeper layers of the skin. Thanks to their ability to nourish the skin from within, a serum can also be thought of like a multivitamin supplement for your skin! Serums should be applied to clean, dry skin.
Moisturizers make the skin feel soft and smooth, a moisturizer typically works to moisturise and hydrate the other layers of the skin. They are often made with thicker consistencies, like shea butter, coconut- or avocado butter. Some moisturizer's act as a barrier between the skin and the environment, this prevents water loss and replaces skin lipids.
Save your skin with a serum
We selected a few of our favourite serums to get you through this time of the year:
