Once you’ve got the basics of a good skin care routine down, the next things you’ll need to bring it to the next level are serums & treatments.
Why Use Skin Treatment/Serums?
While the basics of a skincare routine focus on cleansing and hydration, a treatment product is what helps you reach your skincare goals. They’re formulated with higher concentrations of active skincare ingredients that target specific skin concerns - for example, an anti-ageing treatment usually contains Retinol, while one for dry skin would be formulated with Hyaluronic Acid.
Different Types of Skin Treatment & Serums
A skincare serum is a classic treatment to opt for - they have concentrated formulas that help address your unique skin concerns. They’re an excellent option for achieving your skin goals.
A serum really shines when you use it consistently - it will have higher levels of actives to target skin concerns, plus they’re ideal for both improving and maintaining skin. We recommend using one to boost your beauty routine year-round.
They’re super similar to serums, but they’re typically formulated in single dosage glass vials. Ampoules are designed to be used as a treatment for a short period of time - usually, a week or less for a short term, yet intense treatment for best results.
Sometimes called oil treatments, facial oil is another great way to really add some oomph to your skincare routine. Many plant oils have unique benefits of their own, and whichever one you choose depends on your skin type and goals - the same idea behind choosing the rest of your skincare routine.
Spot treatments are often overlooked, but come in extremely handy for helping with breakouts! They’re something that you should always have on hand in your skincare routine - even if you’re not typically acne-prone. Those pesky zits can pop up for seemingly no reason, and having something on hand to banish them can save you a lot of stress.
