Serum and Moisturizer

What’s the difference between a serum and a moisturizer?

Serums act as specialists. They are formulated to address specific skin concerns such as wrinkles, firming, age spots and discolorations. Serums can address needs that aren’t covered by a moisturizer.

The structure of the molecules in a serum is generally smaller than that of a moisturizer, which allows the serum to penetrate deeper than a regular moisturizer. Serums can deliver vitamins, retinol and antioxidants to the skin to tackle any beauty issue.

Thus, a good serum  provides intensive care to treat problem or fragile areas and it aims to penetrate deep into the three layers of the skin to strengthen the cells as well as deliver active ingredients to your skin.  Although a moisturizer only helps with the superficial layers of the skin by retaining moisture on the surface of the skin and preventing it from evaporating, a good face serum will actually help your moisturizer to penetrate deeper and provide effective hydration.

According to cosmetic chemists, serums have  advantages over moisturizers or gels as these are  absorbed quickly and are often non-conflicting with other bases. Gels may flake and creams may be too oily. Herbally Radiant Serums are not oil-based and therefore free from oily substances.

As for whether a serum should be used along with a moisturizer, experts agree that serums and moisturizers can be used together. Most serums do not have moisturizing ingredients. Their rich ingredients effectively help regeneration of skin cells.

Herbally Radiant Serums (in its top range beauty care products) are Rejuvenating Serum and Radiant Serum. These are very effective formulations as Age Defying, Hydrating and Smoothening. Their rich organic ingredients, with especially selected essential oils have amazing effect. The effective concentrate of DMAE, organic anti-oxidant herbal ingredients and Vitamins richly hydrate skin and smooth out fine lines. The DMAE provides contouring benefits to skin that is losing elasticity, lifts tightens and tones skin besides diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.
