Intrigued already? Then include natural facial serums in your skincare and let your skin naturally glow! Here’s all you need to know about it:
What is a Natural Facial Serum?
A facial serum is a topical skincare product applied to address specific skin problems. It has a runny consistency but is very powerful. Serums are sometimes even better than creams as they are made up of smaller molecules that penetrate the skin deeper, faster, and better. The ingredients are also high in concentration, making facial serums very potent.
Usually these ingredients added to facial serums are a mix of chemicals, extracts, preservatives, colors and fragrances. But when it comes to natural facial serums, the ingredients are:
- Plant-based compounds
- Natural acids
- Botanical Extracts
- Essential oils
- Natural fragrances
- No artificial preservatives
- No synthetic colors or fragrances
A natural facial serum works just as efficiently and delivers active ingredients to the skin pretty quickly. Many different natural facial serums address many different problems, including and not limited to:
- Dull skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines (signs of aging)
- Dry skin
- Acne and blemishes
Benefits of Natural Facial Serums
- Quick Absorbing
Natural facial serums are absorbed very quickly. This helps in increasing their efficiency. Natural facial serums are also hence perfect for the first layer in your skincare regime.
- Feel Light on Your Skin
Unlike those heavy creams, serums are very light to apply. They feel like ‘next to nothing’ on your skin, perfect for a summery day as well as for overnight.
- Work Well on Sensitive Skin
Natural facial serums are better suited for sensitive skin types. The regular facial serums are usually high on chemical preservatives, sulfates, parabens, and other harmful synthetic substances that react very quickly on sensitive skin. Natural serums are gentler.
- Shows Visible Results Quickly
If you choose a reliable and reputed brand, then you can be rest assured, the results will be visible quickly. The concentration of natural ingredients makes the serum work well.
Most natural brands also promise cruelty-free research and production, i.e. their products are not tested on animals. This appeals to most conscientious human beings.
Since chemicals and other environmentally harmful ingredients are avoided in natural facial serums, they are eco-friendly and safe for the environment.
- Work on a Host of Skin Problems
From anti-aging to anti-acne, skin-brightening to ultra-hydrating, you can solve most skin problems with different types of serums.
Types of Natural Facial Serums
If you want to let your skin glow naturally, you need to first identify what is troubling your skin. Once you have zeroed down on the problem, pick one serum that suits you from the list below:
- Anti-aging Serum
Anti-aging serums are used on mature skin types or those that are beginning to show visible signs of aging. They stimulate skin renewal, collagen production, and better hydration to cure wrinkles and fine lines.
Common ingredients found in anti-aging serums:
- Tea Extracts
- Grape Seed Extract
- Vitamin C
- Skin-Brightening Serum
To brighten up dull skin, or supply a natural glow, dermatologists recommend skin-brightening serums. They not only improve your skin tone but also work on sunspots and make your skin softer and smoother.
Common ingredients found in skin-brightening serums:
- Vitamin C
- Licorice Extract
- Lactic Acid
- Glycolic Acid
- Ferulic Acid
- Antioxidant/Free-Radical Fighting Serum
This type of serum mainly fights skin damage caused due to various environmental factors like sun damage, UV rays, pollution, toxins, etc. Habits like keeping makeup overnight and not washing your face regularly also lead to damage of free radicals on your skin. Antioxidant serums help fight these free radicals and protect your skin.
Common ingredients found in antioxidant serums:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Red Tea Extracts
- Hydrating Serum
One of the most popular serums in the market, hydrating serums are mainly applied to keep dry skin moist and supple. They make your skin soft, prevent signs of aging, as well as make your skin look younger, fresh, and plump.
Common ingredients found in hydrating serums:
- Vitamin B5
- Hyaluronic Acid
How to Use a Serum?
A Facial Serum can be a night or day application. Free-radical fighting serums are usually recommended for the day, so that they protect your skin from sun damage, pollution, and other toxins, while anti-aging serums are usually advised for night application.
Day or night, the best way to apply a serum is to make it your base layer. Apply everything else on top of the serum.
- Cleanse your face
- Take a few drops of your serum, dot it over your face, and rub it in
- Wait for a few minutes for it to absorb and settle into your skin
- Then apply your moisturizer, sunscreen, and any foundation if you need
The rule of thumb here is to apply your skincare products in order or their consistency — runny to heavy. That means serum always comes first, and creams and powders come last. This goes for natural facial serums too. That’s how you get that natural glow!
