Did you know that adding a face serum in your beauty routine could drastically improve your beauty routine? These small bottles with their hyper-concentrated formula are perfect targeted treatments. Please note: the face serum is a complementary care and does not replace a moisturiser. Two to three drops applied to a perfectly cleansed face (before the moisturiser or mixed) will solve a whole host of problems... But you still need to choose a serum that is adapted to your skin type. We'll tell you more about choosing the perfect serum and we'll give you our favourite serums :-)
Why incorporate a face serum into your beauty routine?
The face serum is a concentrate of active ingredients that will penetrate deep into the layers of your epidermis to provide a complete, effective and ultra-targeted action. Whether your skin is constantly dehydrated, whether it occasionally develops small dryness or imperfections, or whether it is damaged or marked by the signs of ageing, the application of a serum will help you improve your skin condition thanks to these targeted active ingredients. In the long term or as a cure, the serum can come to the rescue of our upset epidermis punctually, but also accompany us daily throughout our beauty routine, to help us maintain a beautiful and healthy skin.

How to apply your face serum?
The effectiveness of a serum depends almost entirely on the frequency of use, but also on excellent preparation of the skin beforehand... and good application!
Step 1: Cleanse your skin well.
A perfectly clean skin will absorb the treatments applied afterwards much better. If you haven't yet adopted our first essential gesture, the double cleansing, why not start? This consists of an oily cleansing phase to remove all traces of make-up, pollution and excess sebum from your skin. Then, a facial cleanser in the form of a gel or milk to eliminate the last aqueous impurities, such as perspiration. This step is important because the face serum will penetrate your skin better if there is no oily film to block its passage.
Step 2: Apply a few drops of face serum
If the bottles of the face serums are so small, it's because the drops they contain are precious and only 2 to 3 of them are enough to act on your entire face and neck. In the morning and/or evening, pour these few drops into the palm of your hand, rub them gently between your palms and then apply. Apply gentle pressure to your face and neck with your palms and fingers, making sure you don't miss any areas. If you are applying a serum to treat a specific problem (e.g. small pimples), pay particular attention to the area to be treated.
Step 3: Apply a moisturizer or oil
This last step is crucial to finalise the application of your serum. Finishing with a moisturiser or oil after your serum will help it to penetrate better and provide your skin with a protective barrier for the day.
If you have chosen a serum that suits your skin type, it doesn't matter if you have chosen the comfort of Pai Skincarethe ultra-concentrated formulations of Tata Harpers ultra-concentrated formulations, the green and gourmand fragrances ofAntipodes or to another serum from another brand present at Oh My Cream...
