National Novel Writing Month Day 3: Serums 101

Day 3! Still going strong~ Today, we are looking at serums.

What are Serums?

There are light, fast-absorbing liquids used as an alternative or in addition to creams or lotions.

Why use Serums?

Serums are meant to treat problem areas–big or small. Whether the problem is dry skin or age spots, serums are effective because of the deep penetration properties to them. Admittedly, serums are expensive (average serum costs are around $20), but a dime-size pump goes a long way!

How do Serums work?

Most serums are water-based. Ingredients such as mineral oil,  petroleum, nut & seed oils are not found in serums unlike their facial moisturizer cousin. What is left is a product that is high in active ingredients for target treatment.

Who can use Serums?

Anyone can apply serums! Whatever your issue–there is a serum out there to help. But be careful; applying serums onto broken skin, eczema or rosacea can cause more irritation. If you have experience one of these skin issues, please consider other options or wait until the skin is completely healed. For everyone else: choosing the RIGHT serum is very important to the benefit of your skin.

Listed below are serums that are a mix of vegan, organic, and cruelty-free!
