Serum is a lightweight, highly concentrated formulation that helps target concerns and improve skin’s overall appearance.

With a targeted approach to skin concerns, serums like a Glow Serum or Vitamin C serum can often help improve the skin’s appearance more quickly than a cream or moisturizer .

How do you use serum?
Facial serums can be used to see targeted results from your skincare routine. Treat concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and skin texture with a face serum suited for your specific skin need. Serum fits into your skincare routine after cleansing and before a moisturizing step. To see benefits from the active ingredients, serum is recommended for daily use. Our face serums are gentle enough for even sensitive skin types.
Why do you need serum?
Serum can be used to treat specific skincare concerns, so anyone looking to see specific results to address dry skin, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and more, could see benefits from using facial serum on a regular basis. Learn more about when you should start using a serum.
When should you apply serum?
To effectively target your skin concerns, apply serum morning and night. In the morning, apply face serum after cleansing and toning and before smoothing on moisturizer and sunscreen. At night, apply serum before your moisturizer.
Can serum be used daily?
Serums for face can be used twice daily, during the morning and at night, after cleansing and toning and before adding a moisturizer.
Do you use serum before or after moisturizer?
Apply your serum before smoothing on your moisturizer. Many moisturizers provide a protective barrier on skin to help lock in moisture and skincare treatments (like your serum). If serum is applied after a moisturizer, it may even be less effective as it may not penetrate this moisture barrier.
