How To Use Face Serums in Your Makeup


Face serums provide extra nutrients for your skin to keep you hydrated and make you look healthier and more youthful. If you've never used serums in your daily routine before, you may be curious about how to use face serum with makeup. It's quite easy to do and adds little extra time to your routine.

What Are Skin Serums?

Your first question may be "what is serum for skin," and luckily, the answer is quite simple. Serum for the skin adds healthy ingredients that you may not be getting enough of in everyday life. Some serums, such as vitamin C + E serum, add antioxidants that even skin tone and help to create more collagen. Others, like Matrixyl 3000 serum, focus on reversing the signs of aging.

How Do You Apply Serum With Makeup? 

Applying your serum is quite simple. Start by washing and exfoliating your face. Wait until it's damp to apply your chosen product. If the serum is thin, massage one dot each into your cheek, chin and forehead areas. For thick serums, such as Timeless Coenzyme Q10 Serum, you'll need about the same amount but should rub it between your palms to warm it up first. Once warmed, rub it into your skin.

After adding the serum to your skin, perform circular massage motions and small tapping motions for 30-60 seconds to ensure you absorb all the nutrients. Wait at least one minute to ensure absorption before applying your moisturizer. Wait again while the moisturizer dries. From there, you can continue with your usual makeup routine. Remember to remove makeup at the end of the day to prevent your pores from becoming clogged. 

Now that you know the answer to the question "what is serum used for," it's time to search for the right product to meet your needs. Try hyaluronic acid vitamin C serum for a product that boosts moisturization, or try one of Timeless' many other products.
