Should You Use a Serum in Winter

Ask your friends about their skin state right now and everyone will start revealing their problems without even thinking for a second. And all of them will be relatable!!

Dry winter weather wreaks havoc with your face and how. But issues like uneven tone and flakiness aren’t unfixable, irrespective of the season. If you're not using a serum in your skincare routine at least once a day, add one right now!

Hydrating or exfoliating ingredients that gently feed life back into your skin are a must. The correct way, as suggested by dermatologists is to apply a serum after waiting for 5-7 minutes after cleansing. After 5-7 minutes, apply the serum (take 2-3 drops only), then wait for a few minutes to apply the moisturizer. This way, the serum will penetrate deep into the skin and show noticeable results.

A serum not only conditions the skin to give it a polished, mushy, and a more youthful texture but also includes the goodness of various vitamins and antioxidants to help protect the skin against free radical damage. In other words, serums will help in reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging! *jumps with joy*

Serums have proved to be the most effective products when it comes to skincare. This is because of the percentage of active ingredients (70% to be exact) as compared to other lotions (5-10%). These active ingredients show rapid results for glowing skin.

Serum (in the form of a lightweight solution) provides hydration to the skin that allows your skin to breathe more as compared to a moisturizer (which can be heavy on the skin). This makes them perfect for your pores while switching from places of varying temperatures throughout the day.

A serum that contains Vitamin C as well as some soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredients, antioxidants, and Vitamin E, can solve problems like fine lines, wrinkles as well as avoid early aging.

According to dermatologists, resveratrol and Vitamin C are the best constituents to fight pigmentation issues, and also concerns like uneven texture or dullness in the skin.

Retinols come to your rescue when acne issues are in question. Other skin issues like rosacea can also be treated with serums that contain retinol and it is perfectly suitable for people with oily or combination skin types.

Now you know, a hydrating Vitamin C serum is a perfect way to give some moisturizing and anti-aging benefits to protect against dry winter air!
