The Indian beauty scene has seen a surge in Korean skincare products in the last couple of years. We are pretty sure you have a K-beauty staple in your vanity right now as we speak. The effectiveness of Koran skincare formulas has made them a favourite among beauty enthusiasts. The current K-beauty product that skincare enthusiasts are obsessing over is… skin ampoules.
These potent and viscous fluids resemble facial serums. They are packaged in dripper-style vials and are packed with active ingredients. Here’s everything you need to know about skin ampoules before you decide to include them in your skincare routine.
How are ampoules different from your regular face serums?
While both, ampoules and serums, look and behave the say way, they have differences in the molecular level. Both are packed with active ingredients and target specific skin issues. Many seem to think that an ampoule and a serum are the same, however, ampoules contain a higher concentration of active ingredients as compared to serums. Ampoules are meant to be used for a limited time to treat a sudden skin crisis or if you have a big event coming up and want your skin to look its best.
Here’s why you should give ampoules a try
Wondering if you should shell out for your first bottle of skin ampoule? Here are some reasons we think it’ll be a good idea:
- Ampoules are packed with highly active ingredients like pure vitamins and enzymes in different concentrations.
- It is an excellent remedy for targeted skin issues like acne, irritation or age spots.
- They are highly concentrated so deliver more nourishment to your skin than regular skincare products. Make sure to do a patch test to ensure you’re not sensitive to them.
Pro tips: If you have decided to include ampules into your beauty routines, there some pointers to keep in mind. Always exfoliate with a gentle cleanser before applying the product. Ampoules should also always be followed by a moisturiser to lock in the active agents and protect them from evaporating. Ampoules should also be used as a treatment and not a permanent solution. Don't keep using the product once you achieve your desired results. They can heighten the sensitivity of your skin, so be cautious while using them.
