What actually is a serum?
A serum is a lightweight, concentrated skincare product formulated with a high concentration of active ingredients like vitamins and antioxidants.
It's designed to penetrate deep into the skin to target specific concerns such as fine lines, hydration, or brightening. Serums are typically applied after cleansing and before moisturising to deliver potent ingredients directly to the skin.

What is skincare layering and why is it important?
Skincare layering refers to the practice of applying multiple skincare products in a specific order to maximise their effectiveness.
It involves layering products with thinner consistencies, like toners and serums, before thicker products like moisturisers or oils. Proper layering ensures that each product can be absorbed effectively, allowing their active ingredients to work synergistically for optimal results.
So how do I layer my serums effectively?
To layer serums effectively, start with a clean and toned face. Apply serums with thinner consistencies first, allowing each to be absorbed before adding the next. Generally, follow the sequence of water-based serums (like hyaluronic acid or vitamin C) before oil-based serums, and finish with a moisturiser to seal in the benefits (or SPF if it is the day time).
Serums play a crucial role in skincare by delivering a potent dose of active ingredients that address specific skin concerns, such as ageing, hydration, and uneven tone.
Their lightweight texture allows for deep penetration, targeting skin concerns at a cellular level. Incorporating a serum into your routine can enhance the overall effectiveness of your skincare regimen and provide targeted solutions for achieving healthier, more radiant skin.
Serums are lightweight, water-based formulations that contain a high concentration of active ingredients, targeting specific skin concerns like wrinkles or pigmentation.
Oils, on the other hand, are thicker, lipid-based substances that primarily provide hydration and help to seal in moisture, often applied as the last step in a skincare routine.
There are various types of serums tailored to specific skincare needs.
Hyaluronic acid serums (like our Ultimate Serum) focus on deep hydration, probiotic serums (like our Probiotic Jojoba Milk) targets an imbalanced skin microbiome and niacinamide serums help to regulate oil production and improve the appearance of pores.
