If you are an ardent fan of face serums and apply them religiously, then pat yourself on the back because you’re doing great in the skincare department. But those of you who still think that a serum is an expensive, indulgent product, we suggest you give this article a long, hard read.

From brightening your face to controlling and preventing acne, a face serum provides the perfect solution to any skin problem under the sun.

Here’s why you should never go to bed without slathering on some face serum…

 

Reduces signs of fatigue

All the dust, sweat, oil and free radicals can wreak havoc on your skin throughout the day. Add to that your crazy sleep patterns and you’re left with a dull and tired-looking face. Hence, it is important to apply a rejuvenating serum before hitting the sheets. Doing so will promote cell regeneration and repair your skin to ensure you wake up to radiant and glowing skin.

 

Reduces the appearance of pores

It’s important to understand that it is not possible to reduce the size of your pores. But since serum has a really lightweight texture and is highly absorbent in nature, it sinks deep within your pores to keep them clean, prevent clogging as well as reduce excess sebum production. If your pores are clean, they will automatically appear smaller, thus giving your face a very refined and smoother appearance.

More often than not, your regular moisturiser fails to penetrate deep into your skin to deliver intense moisture because of its thick and creamy texture. But this is where a serum comes in. The lightweight texture of the serum, coupled with the active ingredients ensure that your skin is thoroughly moisturised and hydrated and you wake up to baby soft and supple skin in the morning.

Your skin heals and repairs itself while you sleep and therefore it is important to give it enough nourishment to help accelerate this process. And what better way to do so than with active ingredients that are specially formulated for this very purpose. Applying a serum with anti-ageing ingredients helps in cell regeneration and boosting the collagen production of the skin. This is what helps your skin look youthful and radiant.
