What's a Corrective Facial Serum? And Do I Need One?

Posted by Carson Bruner on

If you're looking to amp up your skincare routine, it might be time to add a serum. 

Serums are skin care products that you use after cleansing but before moisturizing. They contain high concentrations of active ingredients to benefit the skin. Skincare serum formulas are often more potent than moisturizers, making them skincare-superheroes. 

But what type of serum is best? Well, that will depend on your specific skin concerns, but if you want to target fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, tone, and texture — a corrective serum will probably be your best bet. 

Ingredients To Look Out For

When you're shopping for any skin, hair, or beauty items — you should always look at the ingredient list. Loads of beauty products are made with toxic, harmful, and dangerous chemicals or preservatives known to have adverse health effects. 

Organic, natural serums and beauty products are the way to go. Our Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B serums are made with active ingredients found in nature to help correct, soothe, and hydrate the skin. Skin-loving elements to look for are collagen to help reduce fine lines, hyaluronic acid to hydrate and soothe the skin, and essential vitamins like vitamin C and vitamin E to improve skin tone and prevent any future damage. 

How To Apply Serum

Whether you're using a corrective serum or any other type, they always go after cleansing and toning but before moisturizers or face oils. The best way to get all the serum benefits is by using your fingertips and gently patting the product into your skin.

Here's a quick beauty tip: massage the serum in upward motions because the skin is quite impressionable. Massaging the serum in upward motions will encourage the skin to stay firm and youthful! 

Serums are made with much smaller molecules (compared to moisturizers), so there's no need to tug or rub them into your skin. You just need to gently massage the product into your skin. Add a serum into your skincare routine to see the difference it can make!
