Skin Serums Vs Creams

Owing to the total number of skincare products in the market with diverse specifications, the regular consumer is often confused when choosing the most suitable product for their skin needs, especially if it is related to delaying the signs of ageing. Alleviating and keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay is one of the biggest considerations when buying an Anti-Ageing Serum or Cream.

What do I need to know and why should I buy/use it?

Let’s first look at the product’s core benefits and composition:

Anti-Ageing Skin Serums

Anti-ageing serums are often lighter and more fluid than skin creams. It is designed to bring active ingredients like Aquaxyl, Argireline , Matrixyl 3000 to the deeper levels of the epidermis more efficiently. Most of the time, they are designed to work with the addition of a cream or skin moisturiser.

Skin serums are quicker to deliver, have faster absorbing capacity and are lightweight. They are usually applied first to fortify the moisturising process. Being a water-based product, serums both hydrate and nourish by transporting active ingredients effectively to the skin.

So, do we really need a serum and a moisturiser?

Yes!  Serums use a delivery system for active ingredients with hydration properties, depending on the composition. To reap the full benefits of moisturising, it is recommended that a moisturiser be applied after using a serum especially if your skin type is normal, dry and mature.

When should a skin serum be applied?

After the facial cleansing and toning routine, apply ample amounts of Physio Radiance Extreme Anti-Oxidant Serum on your chin, the sides of your face , the tip of nose and forehead. Gently massage over areas till it is absorbed. Then, apply the Radiance Enhancer Day & Night Fluid.

Using the Extreme Anti-Oxidant Serum at night will help accelerate skin cellular repair and regeneration.  For users with a more severe condition, a serious anti-ageing skin care regimen together with the Physio Radiance Visage+ Facial Device, available at your eStore, can work as a non-surgical facelift. The convenience and effectiveness of it is that is there is no pain, discomfort or recovery time involved and you can indulge in all this in the comfort of your own home.
