What Is A Face Serum?

At Nakin we love to hear from our customers and one of the questions that we sometimes get asked is what actually a face serum is. Everyone has heard of face serums, as they are now so widely used. But many people wonder what they actually are and do, and why a face moisturiser will not do the job.

At Nakin we produce amazing anti-ageing skincare using beautiful plant extracts to improve and enhance skin. Our range includes stunning award-winning face creams, like our anti-ageing Matt Formula Face Cream for oily, normal, combination and sensitive skin and our anti-ageing Active Dew Face Cream for dry, normal, combination and sensitive skin, but we also have a serum in our range. It is not that our face creams do not do a fantastic job of nourishing, hydrating and protecting skin. Our face creams are incredibly anti-ageing, but a serum is able to bring an extra dimension to face care. Its lighter consistency allows it to reach deep down into the skin cells to work magic on hard to clear skin concerns like lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Face creams need to have a thicker consistency than a serum, as they act as a barrier on the face and neck and do the job of protecting skin from things like pollution, wind and cold weather. A serum is thinner and lighter than a moisturiser, and this different molecular structure means that it can reach down to deeper levels of skin that a moisturiser cannot. Read on to find out what exactly a face serum is and why we love them.

A face serum is a kind of lotion that you apply to skin after cleansing, but before moisturising. The best face serum will contain powerful natural actives like hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and special plant extracts that are able to immensely improve and condition skin.  

The science behind serums comes from the thin consistency which means that the compound molecules are small, and so this low molecular weight allows a serum to get deeper down into the skin layers to reach the dermis, which is below the epidermis on the skin surface. This means that the best serums like our Nakin Performance Face Serum can provide skin concentrated ingredients below the skin surface to correct, refine and transform the skin. Good serums will also glide onto skin like silk and absorb instantly. They help with lines, wrinkles and skin texture, tone and radiance – as well as hydrating deep down. Results should be almost instant and increase over time. It takes about one to three months for the new baby skin cells to reach the surface of the face and neck. Consistent use of a serum morning and evening over this time period will allow skin to improve significantly.

Serums are particularly important if you are concerned about skin ageing. This is because they help to keep skin looking as youthful as possible, and they also help to repair and ease the look of past skin damage.

At Nakin we only recommend using a natural face serum as some of the actives in synthetic serums like retinol and vitamin C can be quite harsh to skin and throw them off balance. A good natural face serum will help skin to look as good as it can naturally, but without any side effects. Our Nakin Performance Face Serum contains only natural kind actives that boost skin on the face and neck. It is so kind that it even works on sensitive skin. It is also cruelty free and made in the UK.

We hope that you found our feature helpful about what face serums are. Face serums play an important part in a skincare regime with their light formulations packed with skin enhancing actives. They have many benefits for skin to correct skin issues and protect new ones from forming, this is why we have a gorgeous serum in our range, as part of our mission to always offer the best skincare products.
