What if this year we convinced ourselves to adopt a skincare routine adapted to our skin? Just a few essential products that will follow us every season, nothing superfluous, just the essentials for healthy skin. Among our must-haves: a face serum, which we consider to be one of the most important products in the routine.
When should you apply a serum on your skin?
If you’ve missed our article on the order in which to apply your beauty routine, we recommend applying serum in the morning and evening on clean skin before your usual moisturizer. But why use a face serum if I already use a moisturizing cream that suits me?
Good question! Applying a face serum will prepare your skin to receive the skincare routine, it is the first product to be absorbed, making it a very important step. In addition, serums are particularly rich in active ingredients (niacinamide, vitamin C, zinc...) and can be used to treat a localized skin issue.
Which face serum to choose?
At Seasonly, we have developed face serums to meet everyone's needs, ultra-concentrated cocktails of actives that act like a vitamin shot for the skin. Do you have multiple issues you wish to tackle? It is entirely possible to use your serum locally to meet your skin's needs or use a different serum in the morning and evening.
Serums and boosters allow you to customize your skincare routine and create a routine that suits you. For instance, if you have combination skin and congested pores on your forehead and nose, it is recommended to use a mattifying anti-blemish serum on the T-zone and a more moisturizing serum on the rest of the face.

Should a serum be preferred over oil?
The skin needs to be hydrated (water) and nourished (lipids), serums are mostly hydrating while oil will nourish and repair the skin. We recommend that people with particularly dry and weakened skin use both a serum and a face oil.
The serum can be applied in the morning on dry skin and a few drops of face oil can be mixed with the moisturizer to make it more nourishing. In the evening, we recommend that mature and fragile skin prefer an oil and not neglect the moisturizer. This duo will allow the skin to reconstitute its hydrolipidic film, it will be visibly more radiant and relaxed in the morning.
