When it comes to different types of skin care treatments, there are two similar kinds that many people confuse: ampoule and serum. As similar as they are, they have different purposes in a skin care routine. Here’s what you need to know about ampoules and why you should use one.
What is an Ampoule?
This kind of skincare product is loosely inspired by medical ampoules. They’re small doses of a concentrated skincare formula contained in individually sealed containers. Storing skincare this way locks freshness and potency in each dose to ensure that you get the results that you’re looking for!
Think of them as super-concentrated serums. They’re incredibly effective on skin and meant to be used as a treatment every so often rather than every day. When adding an ampoule to your skincare routine, it should go after your essence step and before your moisturiser - basically, in the same slot as a serum.
Ampoule and Serum: What’s the Difference?
An ampoule sounds similar to a serum but choosing between the two highlights important differences that might influence your choice. Ampoules are designed to be used for a shorter period of time as an intensive treatment. Unlike an ampoule, serum is formulated to change skin over time with consistent use.
You can use ampoules to get supercharged results, then maintain those results with a serum that has similar key ingredients to keep your skin looking amazing. Ingredients that you might find in an ampoule (serum too, really) include Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol, and Peptides. And this isn’t an exhaustive list - there are ones out there to suit every skin type and every skin concern to help you on your skincare journey.
