Unlike lotions or cream, serums are mostly made up of active ingredients allowing them to deliver a very high concentration of powerful, healing ingredients deep into the dermis of your skin. At night your skin is the most receptive to healing, leaving your skin feeling smoother, softer and uber hydrated. Serums address your skin’s unique needs, whether those needs are for oily skin issues, sensitive skin, dry skin or combination skin, our serum has been formulated to be kind to all of these varying skin types.
What exactly are face serums?
Think of serums as concentrated treatments that are packed with ingredients that penetrate deeply into the skin. They sort of act like power boosters that work magic below the skins surface. The result - bright, smooth, glowing from within the skin.
Serums are powerful because they contain smaller molecules that easily penetrate the skin’s delicate surface barrier and deliver active ingredients into the deeper layers of skin. Known for their immediate effectiveness, serums combat pointed skin concerns like aging thin skin that looks tired, or fine lines as we age.
While there are many types of serums, most contain an anti-oxidant which helps your skin combat free radical damage. Free radicals can build up in cells and cause damage to other molecules, such as DNA, lipids, and proteins. This damage may increase the risk of cancer and other diseases.

Why You Should Use an Antioxidant Skin Serum at Night
While you're sleeping, your body goes through its own natural healing process that includes repairing cells in your skin and detoxing your liver of all toxicity buildup. Your major organs all regenerate at night specifically between the hours of 1am and 4am and since your skin is your body's largest organ, serums with antioxidants can help boost this process and make your skin look brighter and smoother when you wake up in the morning.
The best time to apply face serum is after cleansing your face and before moisturizing it. Start by washing your face and applying toner if you use one. It’s best to apply serum while your skin is still damp after cleansing or toning so that it absorbs into your skin more easily. Since face serums are so concentrated, you only need about a dime-sized amount of product. You can also add a few drops of serum to your regular moisturizer for an extra boost of hydration and skin-loving benefits. Apply the serum all over your face or just on the dry patches—it’s up to you!
