Serums FAQ

Dermatologists favor layering skincare products to get the most out of them individually and collectively. It’s likely that you are not one, so here’s what you should know about the first treatment step: Serums.


  • What is a skin repairing serum?

    It’s one of the most important products you can use. It delivers powerful active ingredients as small molecules in intense concentrations. And that means a serum gets through the skin with speed and efficiency to specifically target and visibly correct damage.
  • Can I protect my face from sun without sunscreen?

    The answer is you cannot unless you totally avoid exposure. Even if you are inside, you are exposed to ultraviolet radiation for brief periods throughout the day, especially near windows, which generally filter out UVB but not UVA rays.
  • which ingredient is best for improving skin tone and reducing wrinkles?

    An antioxidant-rich serum works extremely well at preventing oxidative strain from pollution and UV radiation. It can be used under a sunscreen in the morning and at night under a moisturizer. Essentially, it is multifunctional and protects the skin at the same time it evens skin tone and reduces the number and depth of facial wrinkles. 
  • Is a serum really a moisturizer?

    Not in the truest sense. A serum can have hydrating ingredients, like hyaluronic acid in it to boost moisture retention but, that doesn't make it a moisturizer, particularly since hydrating creams are traditionally richer and create a barrier on top of the skin. 
  • What ingredients define a serum’s purpose?

    There are mainly six categories of active ingredients: antioxidants, peptides, retinol, growth factors, alpha and beta hydroxyl acids, and unique botanicals.
  • which is best to firm skin?

    A serum rich in peptides can help to boost collagen and elastin production and restore firmness to the skin.
  • What about a serum for overnight renewal?

    It can certainly help the skin,help itself by strengthening the skin’s barrier function. Overnight repair is a natural process best performed during the restorative hours of sleep. Look for a serum containing essential oils like primrose and lavender and the botanical lipid, squalen.  
  • Which to brighten and regenerate skin?

    A serum containing retinol accelerates cellular renewal and brightens the skin as a result, making it appear more luminous and smooth.
