Serums Vs Oils
Both serums and facial oils can serve a purpose in your skincare routine! They’re designed to treat and nourish the skin, but in different ways. Face serums and facial oils each have their own advantages and can be used separately or layered to work together. The main difference between a facial oil and serum comes down to the composition of their formulas.
Serums are supplements for your skin. With their lightweight texture and smaller molecular structure they are able to deeply penetrate the skin. This allows them to deposit powerful active ingredients like peptides, antioxidants, or acids in the deeper layers of skin for more targeted results.
Oils provide a boost of nutrition and hydration. They also provide the skin with lipids which fortify the skin barrier which is extremely important for healthy skin.
Keep in mind that you should layer them correctly from lightest to thickest consistency to ensure your products have a chance to absorb and work effectively.
Always serums first oils last
