As its name suggests, the hydrating serum … hydrates! It is a treatment that is applied directly to the skin, in order to deeply impregnate and revitalize it. Intended for both men and women, it comes in the form of a relatively liquid fluid, sometimes in the form of a gel.
Restore a new radiance to your face by massaging it every morning with a serum that will deeply hydrate it. Even if you don’t yet have wrinkles, it is important to take care of your skin.
Specific formulas for the first signs of aging delay the onset of fine lines, which can start to form as early as the age of 25.
In addition, the serums also fight the effects of pollution, lack of hydration, fatigue and stress on the skin.
Serums are suitable for different areas of the face, forehead, chin, eye area, cheeks … but also the neck and décolleté.
- Increase the effectiveness of your hydrating serum
Adopt a healthier lifestyle by avoiding anything that tends to dry out your skin. Wind, long exposure to the sun or air conditioning, showers that are too hot, alcohol and tobacco, are all factors that could reduce the effectiveness of your hydrating serum. Always try avoiding washing your face too often and too vigorously, at the risk of destroying the hydro-lipid film that should cover and protect it.
You should also eat fatty foods, such as salmon, or mackerel, to help keep your skin supple. Also remember to drink at least 1.5 liters of water per day!
- When to use a hydrating serum?
- Moisturizing serums should always be applied to clean, bare skin, after your evening make-up removal or before morning beauty treatment.
- It only takes a few drops of this relatively liquid treatment.
- Apply with fingers, cotton pads are far too absorbent. Take a few drops in the palm of your hand. Insist on the most delicate areas: the cheeks, the T zone, the chin, the forehead, the eye area …
Be careful, the serum does not replace a day cream. Wait a few minutes before applying the day or night cream to give the serum time to penetrate well and moisturize the skin. Its active components will prepare the epidermis for the application of the day or night cream. The two products are complementary: we can consider the serum as a basic treatment, to be performed before any other action on the face! It is important to put it on at night too, since this is the time when your skin will regenerate most effectively.
- Some tips for spreading your moisturizing serum
Massage your face with your fingertips, making small circles. Not only will the serum penetrate better, it will activate your circulation.
Once you have collected a few drops of serum in the palm of your hand, wait a few moments to heat the liquid for greater comfort of application.
