While most of us know that day serums and serums, in general, are highly beneficial for the skin, what many people overlook is, a little goes a long way. Serums have a reputation for working wonders on the skin, boosting collagen production and stimulating cell rejuvenation, this is thanks to the deeply moisturising properties combined with anti-oxidant and vitamin-rich formulas.
It’s easy to think that the more nutritious and concentrated ingredients used, the better and healthier the results, we will achieve for our skin. With this belief, it is easy to understand why we apply our serums liberally, thinking there will be an added benefit for our skin.
The reality is, that your skin will absorb as much of the ingredients as it can, the balance will just sit on the skin, where it might clog pores and create problems that your skin did not previously have. Allowing serums to sit on the surface of your skin can result in breakouts and even give a dull, undernourished appearance, which is the opposite of what serums if used correctly, should help you achieve.
The best way to avoid these problems is to use the correct amount – no more than a pea size. Not only will your product last longer, but you’ll also see better and longer-lasting results.
