Maintaining healthy skin from the inside is as important as keeping it clean and healthy from the outside. With high carb food intake, sedentary lifestyle, fat gets stored under the layer of the skin. If not removed through sweating, the accumulated fat can sometimes cause pimples, unhealthy ruptures, and infection.
Skincare Cream versus Serums
Traditionally, creams are used on the skin. But, the heavier molecules of the same do not nourish the skin like the serum molecules. In that case, serums are to be applied first, then the cream to keep the cream molecules locked deep inside the skin. Cost-wise, creams are less expensive than serums. That is because serums are concentrated and power-packed with nutrients, while creams are more into moisturizing the skin.
Proper hydration, moisturization, clearing dark spots, anti-aging, acne control, oil control, etc are some of the very popular functions of skincare serums. Inika Organic, Saya Skin, Boost Lab Syrums, Kora Organics, Eye of Horus, The Beauty Chef, etc are some of the iconic skincare brands of Australia.
Types of Serums
There are various kinds of serums available in the market. Advertisements, celebrities, and the fashion industries heavily emphasize such products to make these popular among the people. It has now become a necessity to use these products or else be tagged as being outdated in skincare awareness.
Serums with essential oils, organic ingredients are immensely popular ones. These contain Vitamins and Minerals readily available for the benefit of the skin, which is not able to absorb it from the blood; which in turn is delivered by food. Some types are-
The Skin Hydrating Serums hydrate or help capture moisture in the skin to avoid dryness or flaky skin.
Exfoliating Serums contain activated acids which can remove or dissolve the dead skin cells.
Firming Serums help to tighten loose or sagging skin. It supplements the skin with collagen and moisture to achieve the goal of firm skin.
The Anti-aging Serums lessen the number of lines and wrinkles on your skin. They usually contain vitamin A and vitamin B3.
The Skin Brightening Serums contain Vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant, lessening the rapid pigmentation of the skin. It inhibits melanin formation in the skin. Melanin is responsible for the darker shades of skin and dark color of the hair growing on the skin. So lessening its production in the skin naturally leads up to light-colored or brighter skin.
Many more such serums under a multitude of names and claims have captured a market for themselves when the demand for a skincare regime is going up on a daily or yearly basis. Scented serums are more popular as they appeal to the senses of the user, further attracting them to the product.
Firstly, before choosing the cosmetic products for your skin, consulting a Dermatologist to determine the skin type and asking for recommendations of required creams, serums would be ideal. It is to avoid future hassles with the skin because of trusting advertisements in a blindfolded manner. As it can sometimes mislead the users, making every serum applicable to all skin types. The same is actually applicable for any cosmetic. It is important to accept aging as a natural process rather than a disease or malignity of the skin.
