Updated: Nov 4, 2022

You have probably been hearing a lot about face serums recently, and now you are curious as to what all the hype is about. These teeny-tiny vials of wonder are designed to work their magic on your skin, causing it to become more luminous, young, spotless, and just generally healthy and lovely in general. However, if you are curious about the proper use of a face serum, know that you are not the only one. Does it get applied after you've already moisturized? Should it only be put on before going to bed? How much of it should I include into my recipe? If these questions are preventing you from incorporating serums into your routine, continue reading to learn how to utilize a face serum effectively so that you may get the most benefit out of it.

1. How often should I use a facial serum?

Once in the morning on freshly washed skin, before to applying the remainder of your makeup, and once in the evening before retiring for the day, it is generally considered acceptable to use face serums twice daily. However, don't forget to check the guidelines on the label of your serum to find out any further information about how to use the serum properly. While you should steer clear of using some serums throughout the day, others reach their optimal level of efficacy in the bright sunlight. Before adding any serum into your regular skincare regimen, make sure you read all of the instructions first. You could be wondering how to construct the proper skincare regimen. Learn all you need to know about the ideal skincare regimen by reading on.

2. How much face serum should I use on each application?

When it comes to face serums, a little amount may have a significant impact due to the potency and high concentration of active chemicals that are found in serums. You should apply a coating that is not too thick or heavy on your face since you want the product to be able to infiltrate your skin as fast as possible. A adequate amount of face serum requires around two pumps, which is equivalent to a quantity roughly the size of a pea. Even better would be if your serum came with its own dropper. You have complete control over the amount of serum that you apply thanks to the dropper, and you can always add another drop or two if more are required. It should only take around three to four drops of the face serum to provide a thin layer of coverage throughout your whole face.

3. What is the proper method for applying face serum?

In contrast to other facial care products, such as rich face creams and moisturizers, which are applied to the face by massaging them into the skin in an upward motion, serums are supposed to be tapped into the face in very tiny circular movements using the fingers or the palms of your hands. Avoid vigorously rubbing your skin and instead wait for the serum to be absorbed into your skin on its own. In order to apply the Vitamin C Booster Serum, first pour a pea-sized quantity (about three to four drops) onto your hands using the dropper provided. Spread it out between your hands with just a little amount of rubbing. Tap your face and neck gently with your fingertips while applying the serum all over your face and neck. Before moving on to the next step in your skincare routine, you should let the serum a couple of minutes to fully absorb into your skin.

4. What is the recommended sequence for using different skin care products?

How you apply face serum is one of the most important factors that determines how effective it is. To get the most out of each of your skincare products, it is advised that you use them in the sequence that is specified in the manuals that come with the items.
