In the classic daily facial skincare routine, most of us now use a moisturiser, anti-imperfection or anti-ageing cream. The benefits of regular use of a natural cream without oils or parabenes are now well established. However, one of the products we know less about is undoubtedly the face serum. For many of us it is still an almost mysterious object and we do not fully understand its functions. Let’s get some clarity on this product that can be considered a real concentrated and powerful elixir that should be an integral part of the skincare all of us.
What is face serum?
The face serum is different from a normal moisturiser. The serum has a more oily base in which there is a very high concentration of natural active ingredients such asMandelic Acid, Vitamin C or low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid. It is precisely the molecular composition that gives the serum its incredible and powerful properties. Having smaller molecules, the serum penetrates deeper into the skin, managing to provide that set of active ingredients concentrated in a much narrower time than normal cream.
Be careful though, the serum should not be considered a substitute for the cream. A good daily skincare should be based on a wise combination of face serum and cream.
How is face serum applied?
As we have mentioned, face serum should not be the only component in a correct and balanced skincare. For example, the combination of our creams and pure snail serums in high concentration, allow the incredible moisturising and soothing properties of this natural ingredient to penetrate deep into the skin with positive effects much longer lasting.
The procedure for applying the face serum is very simple and fast. The serum should be applied after cleansing the face, but before applying the cream, to allow the concentrated active ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin and be more effective. Due to its concentrated nature, and being denser than water, the serum is very effective even if applied in small doses. Simply apply a very thin layer of serum by gently massaging the skin until it is completely absorbed.
Why is face serum used
Nowadays there are many types of face serums according to our specific needs: anti-ageing to firm wrinkles, moisturise, fight imperfections, moisturise or brighten. In fact, there are often complete lines of serum and cream, sold together, suitable for our specific needs.
For example, at Bioat, for some of our creams based on pure concentrated organic snail slime, we recommend to also purchase the serum from the same line in order to have a complete skincare.
As we explained earlier, one of the main “roles” of face serum is to hydrate the skin. Our Hydrata Plus line of pure snail moisturising cream and face serum is perfect for this purpose. After cleansing your face with water or mild soap, the Hydrata Plus Serumis a powerful hydration elixir with a light texture that can keep your skin hydrated for a long time. Thanks to theincredible mix of natural principles of pure snail slime, our serum has a great moisturising and soothing property. The addition of a natural element such as Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid allows the serum to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, avoiding the dispersion of water and maintaining optimal hydration. After applying the serum for a complete hydration of our face is also recommended the use of the Hydrata Plus Cream brightening moisturiser.
The serum has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin layers. It is exactly thanks to this that face serum is increasingly used to firm the skin and smooth out wrinkles. Our Repair Plus line has been created exactly for this purpose. The Repair Plus Serum Anti ageing nourishes and repairs the skin, slowing down its ageing. Collagen, elastin andallantoin contained in snail slime have great regenerating properties. The added natural substances, such asAvocado Oil and Shea Butter, protect the skin from the action of free radicals. Combining all this with the fact that the serum acts on the deepest layers of the skin and we obtain a highly effective tool of our daily skincare to combat the passage of time and wrinkles. Finally, when used in conjunction with the Nourishing Restorative Repair Plus Cream more evident results can be obtained.
Anti spots and Imperfections Serum
Often the power of face serum is used to correct skin spots or imperfections. These spots can have various causes: sun, acne, pregnancy or can be due to age. At Bioat, we thought of these skin problems when we created the Perfecta Plus Serum anti imperfections brightener. It is a really powerful blend to correct the appearance of skin spots. A very important detail is that the Perfecta Plus face serum is also suitable for the most sensitive skin. Glycolic Acid naturally contained in snail slime along with the addition of a natural active ingredient such as Mandelic Acid make our serum effective on all these types of skin spots. The set of natural active ingredients of snail slime give the serum a smoothing action, making the face become brighter.
