5 Reasons Why Serum is Your Skincare Routine’s New Best Friend

5 Reasons Why Serum is Your Skincare Routine’s New Best Friend

By now, we’re all aware of the basic skincare commandments: never go to sleep with your makeup on, always moisturise and slather on SPF like your life depends on it.  But there’s a new hero product on the block that is swiftly becoming a complexion mandate: use a serum in your skincare routine. If you are looking to add a serum to your skincare routine, or looking for a better one then our Nakin Performance Face Serum makes a lovely option.

While we can all agree that a 15-step daily skincare routine is not for everyone, there is one particular step that you should definitely get on board with and that’s serum. This skincare essential offers potent formulations, targeted results and impressive customisation options. It’s time to supercharge your skin care with this beauty-insider favourite. Get ready to dive into everything you need to know about the top five benefits of serum, your new skincare ally when it comes to skin ageing.

Top 5 Reasons to Use a Serum 

  • Ultra-targeted action
  • A little really does go a long way
  • Instantly absorbed into the skin
  • Provides synergy with other skincare essentials
  • Offers fast acting results

Get ready to enjoy ultra-targeted action

When it comes to serums, they’re all killer and no filler, containing a high concentration of active ingredients you can get without a prescription. For instance, both daily face creams and cleansers typically contain some active ingredients, whereas a serum can contain a much larger amount of active ingredients. This translates to a high-potency, ultra-targeted formula that can help to increase levels of hydration in the skin, improve skin’s firmness and reduce wrinkles. It can also help to increase skin’s brightness, making it the perfect hero ingredient for a dull, tired complexion.

Just a few drops are all you need…

Thanks to the highly concentrated formulas you can find in your serum, a recommended daily dose can include just a one to two pumps for your face and neck. It is recommended that this top skincare ingredient is added to both your morning and evening skincare routine for better efficiency and the quickest results.

A serum will instantly absorb into the skin

It’s recommended that you apply a few precious drops of your serum onto clean dry skin, and after cleansing with our face cleansers. You should then follow up with your favourite face cream like our moisturisers to protect the skin and help lock in the fast-acting active ingredients. Most serums have a silky, fine texture which makes them highly-absorbent. This is great news if you prefer a quick and simple daily skincare routine.

Easily integrate serum into your current skincare routine 

You will likely be surprised at how easy it is to integrate using a serum into your regular skincare routine. This high-potency ingredient provides a much-needed boost when you are dealing with changing skincare needs. For quick and long-lasting results, a serum paired with another skincare product whose active ingredients complement those found in the serum will work best and provide synergy within your skincare routine.  A great example of this is our high-performance face serum. 

When tall drinks of water and a constantly running humidifier just aren’t cutting it, then you should definitely give your parched skin a douse of our seriously hydrating serum. Our Natural Anti-Ageing Performance Face Serum includes the power of hyaluronic acid and hibiscus to smooth fine lines and improve skin’s elasticity. When this serum is paired with our Natural Anti-Ageing Active Dew Face Cream, prepare for super supple and hydrated photo-ready skin.

High potency = fast acting results

Last but certainly not least, one of the top reasons to integrate serums into your skincare routine is that the effects serums provide tend to arrive quickly due to the product’s highly-concentrated nature.  This means it can immediately help with any skincare problems you may be currently facing.  For the most impatient of them all, serums will likely become your new ski saviour. 

If you’re struggling with dry skin, then a moisturising serum can help to leave skin looking smooth and velvety.  Similarly, an anti-ageing serum will seek to improve skin’s elasticity and wrinkles. 

Is serum right for your skin? 

The answer to this is probably. Before you go out and purchase a serum it’s important to know your ingredients first. Nakin's serum is made for all skin types and contains ingredients that every skin type loves. If you’re…

Dry Skin: If you have dry skin, your best friends are vitamin E (a high-performing antioxidant that helps reduce cell damage), niacinamide (improves skin’s elasticity), and hyaluronic acid (improves moisture retention).

Acne-prone: Be on the lookout for a serum that is not too rich and thick and instead contains lots of nutrients like vitamins (helps to enhance your skin’s natural repair process, reduce inflammation and increase collagen production), minerals (repairs and sooth irritation), peptides (excellent line smoothers), and plant AHAs (to unclog blocked pores). 

Feeling a little dull: Look for high-performing antioxidants like ferulic acid, green tea extract and resveratrol (these ingredients help to increase the effectiveness of SPF by day and promote cellular repair by night).

When it comes to your daily skincare menu, serums really do offer it all.  Whether it’s a glow-enhancing, age-defying or moisture-boosting serum you’re currently on the hunt for, there really is something for everyone.
