How To: Apply Serum

Skin serum may be one of the most misunderstood beauty products. Questions like, “Do I really need it?” and “How do I apply serum?” are on the minds of those who want to do what it takes to get a healthy and vibrant face. 

Thankfully, skin care serum isn’t really that mysterious or complicated. If you purchase an all-natural serum made with healing ingredients, that is. And, if you forgo a serum loaded with strange ingredients and promises to do something that’s not possible (like give you new skin in a day).

Once you buy a natural and organic skin serum, the rest of getting the maximum benefits from the product goes like this:

Gather Supporting Products 

A skin care serum isn’t meant to be used alone. It’s, rather, a supporting player in a comprehensive beauty routine. Along with your serum, you’ll want to make sure you have a gentle and plant-based face wash as well as an ultra-hydrating moisturizer. Your serum does its best work on damp skin, which is where your moisturizing product will come into play and why you should blot-dry after cleansing.

Define Your Beauty Goals

While a skin care serum can absolutely be used all over the face, sometimes it’s just needed for spot care. Think about why you are using a serum before you apply. Do you have dark circles or bags under your eyes? Does your face feel dry and tight all over? Maybe you have age marks in certain areas. Choose a skin care serum that will give you the results you need so you don’t waste time or product. 

The Application

When applying serum, it’s best to consider consistency as well as use. Generally, you’ll want to apply your beauty products starting with the lightest one and finishing up with the heaviest. This is because products with the biggest molecular structure need to go on last, so they don’t block pores and prevent other beneficial formulas from entering the skin. For instance, you might use your lightest serum over a damp, freshly washed face. Then, you’d apply your moisturizer followed by your deep hydrating facial serum.

Timeless Skin Care has many types of facial serums you can use solely or in combination. We provide a range of serums, including our Vitamin C Serum and the best hyaluronic acid serum on the market, to give you exactly what you need for skin that’s in top condition.

I have heard about your product recently and am considering purchasing several serums however, I have one question about the ingredients – can you tell me more about benzyl alcohol?

It seems to be used in many of your products and I’ve read some mixed reviews on if it should be used.

Thanks so much for the additional info!
