Why Should You Use a Face Serum When Caring For Your Beautiful Black Skin?

Why Face Serums For Beautiful Black Skin?

Before you jump right into using a product, it might be a good idea to actually find out what it is and how it works. So let's talk a bit about face serums.

Face serums are lighter in weight than traditional moisturizers and deliver more active ingredients into your skin. They're formulated to penetrate deeper and regular use can often give your skin a firmer, smoother texture and increase the moisture your skin might be lacking.

By adding a serum to your black skin care regimen, you're enhancing your existing regimen and providing a more comprehensive approach to your skin care needs. So if your skin lacks hydration or you're concerned about sagging jowls, fine lines and wrinkles a few drops of a serums that addresses those issues will help minimize that particular challenge.

Here are a few questions that you've often asked about Serums.

When should I use a Serum?

A Serum can be used twice a day, morning and night. Serums are the first product you use after you cleanse and tone your skin. For morning use, your face serum should be followed by your sunscreen and at night the moisturizer that's appropriate for your skin type.

How do I apply my serum?

A couple of squirts or drops into the palm of your hand gives you control over the amount you're going to use. Then take two fingers and apply to your neck, forehead, cheeks and massage gently and thoroughly in an upward/outward motion towards the top of your head to where your face meets your hairline.

Can a serum be used by itself or without a moisturizer?

Because the texture of a serum is lighter than that of a moisturizer, it can often be used by itself or as a stand alone product for someone with oilier skin. However if your skin is normal to dry, your serum would be the product you apply before your moisturizer. Ex: cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer.

How will I know which serum to choose for my beautiful black skin?

It's really going to depend on your objective for its use. The functions and benefits you're looking to achieve will determine which to choose. For instance, serums that are formulated in a water base tend to be better suited for those of you with oily skin. Those of you with drier skin will find that serums formulated with oils, might be the better choice for your skin. You will also find that serums formulated for drier skin types will have a richer texture.

What's in a serum?

When we talk about serums, there's always the term: active ingredients. It's the active ingredients that will often define your serum and its function. Serums typically contain antioxidants, peptides, retinol, growth factors, alpha and beta hydroxyl acids and botanicals/ essential oils.

Peptides are used in serums to restore firmness and boost collagen and elastin in your skin.

Retinol in a serum can help accelerate the renewing of cells. Retinol's are a clean or more natural version of Retin-A. They often give your skin the appearance of being more luxurious and smoother.

Essential Oils are my favorite ingredients when caring for skin of color. Combined with carrier oils (jojoba, coconut, olive, grape seed), essential oils can help your skin repair itself overnight.

Antioxidants such as pomegranate, vitamin C and grape seed, work to prevent the strain from pollution and UV radiation that your skin is exposed to on a daily basis.

Alpha and Beta Hydroxyl, also known as AHA/BHA, are two types of acids that are used in skin care products to fight acne, help with exfoliation, anti-aging and overall skin care maintenance.

That being said ...

As women with beautiful black skin or skin of color, what you'll find in using serums is that they have many functions. They work to protect your skin as well as improve the evenness of your skin tone. Add them to your existing skin care regimen and you could find that you've just taken caring for your skin to another level.
