Facial Serum vs. Facial Moisturizer

Knowing the differences and benefits in using a facial serum or a facial moisturizer is important for skin care.

Facial serums give you more moisture than facial moisturizers, however that is not the main benefit associated with them.

The main reason for using a facial serum over a facial moisturizer is because additional nutrients seep into deeper layers of your skin that a standard moisturizer is not able to reach. A facial moisturizer has larger molecules than a serum. Therefore, a moisturizer cannot penetrate the skin as far as a serum.

While serums deposit nutrients, moisturizers are solely meant to deposit moisture.

There are a variety of serums available from anti-aging serums to skin brightening serums.

Apply facial serum before moisturizer. Yes, you can use both a facial serum and facial moisturizer; however, it is not necessary. A serum can help improve aging signs, as well as hydrate and moisturize your skin.

Utilizing facial serums can result in firm and toned skin with little to no effort. Although it is important to choose a facial serum with ingredients that match your specific skin care needs.
