Top 5 Face Serum Benefits

July 23, 2020 by Kate Somerville

Wondering if face serum deserves a coveted spot in your skincare regimen? You're not alone. Despite its growing popularity, face serum still remains a mystifying beauty product on shelves. Adding a day or night serum to your skincare routine can prove to be a game-changer when it comes to your skin's health. Choosing the right face serum for your skin type can have a wide range of benefits. To help you better understand why you should add a face serum to your skincare regimen, our Skin Health Experts reveal five of the top skincare benefits.


1. Free of Fillers

Fillers like mineral oil and petroleum can be found in various skincare products. Though fillers do not always create skin problems, they can cause irritation and may even trigger breakouts for individuals with sensitive skin. Because serums are generally pure in form and prepared with a unique delivery system, they are often free of fillers and other potentially irritating ingredients. A face serum's goal is to properly deliver beneficial ingredients like Peptides, Minerals, and powerful actives from skin’s surface deep into skin where they can be most effective.


2. Can Help With Oil Build Up

Wondering if you can benefit from using a face serum if you have oily skin? While avoiding oil-based products may seem like a smart skincare solution, it may ultimately deprive your skin of much-needed moisture. Your skin may overcompensate for perceived dryness by overproducing natural oils, making your oily skin even oilier. Here’s how a serum can help. Moisture-rich face serums give your skin hydration without contributing to oil build up. Adding a skin serum like the Kate Somerville Quench Face Serum to your skincare routine will work to deliver intense hydration, while also counteracting environmental stressors.


3. Calming for Sensitive Skin

Still asking yourself “what does serum do for your skin?” If you have sensitive skin, you're likely no stranger to redness, irritation, itchiness, or rashes. In fact, you may have experienced them all at once. Harsh chemicals, unnecessary fillers, and even sunlight can harm sensitive skin, causing breakouts, blemishes, and skin damage [2].


So, how do you protect your face and keep your sensitive skin hydrated and strong? By adding a face serum to your regimen! One of the most incredible face serum benefits is that it works to help reduce inflammation and irritation. Serums like the DeliKate® Recovery Serum can help soothe stressed or sensitive skin while restoring your skin’s protective barrier. Using a daily face serum like this one will help keep your skin looking and feeling its best!


4. Contributes to Younger Looking Skin

If you have begun to notice your skin's youthful look fading, then it's time to invest in an anti-aging, face brightening serum. Face serums with anti-aging benefits can help reduce visible aging skin signs like crow's feet, dark spots, and fine lines and eye wrinkles. Serums like our DermalQuench Wrinkle Warrior®, contain age-defense beneficial ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Sichuan Pepper Extract, and Polyglutamic Acid. Say goodbye to rough skin texture or dull skin! All of these ingredients work together to create a gorgeous and dewy complexion that's as healthy as it is youthful.


Looking for a way to smooth uneven skin texture? We’ve got a serum for that, too! Vitamin C-based serums like the Kate Somerville Retinol Vita C Power Serum help boost the brightness of your skin while simultaneously improving the texture, firmness, tone, and look of skin elasticity. Applying an anti-aging serum to your face daily is an excellent way to ensure your skin is looking its best. However, if you’re using a Retinol-infused serum, don’t start using every night. Try using once or twice a week so your skin adapts to the power of Retinol.


5. Can Help Banish Blemishes

Let's talk about acne. It's likely that everyone has experienced some types of acne at some point in their lives. Whether you've dealt with moderate or severe acne, blemishes are never fun. Troublesome pimples, blemishes, and acne scars can easily stand between you and your goal of achieving flawless skin. Wondering how to prevent pimples? To help keep your skin blemish-free, try investing in a face serum formulated with acne-fighting ingredients. Incorporating a face serum like our EradiKate® Acne Treatment into your skincare regimen works to help your skin unclog pores, absorb excess oils, and stop breakouts. Formulated with powerhouse ingredients like Sulfur, BHA's, and Zinc Oxide, this serum can help you see visibly clearer skin.


Whether you're searching for an anti-aging product such as a brightening serum or want to fight off unwelcome blemishes, adding a face serum to your skincare regimen will surely improve your skin's health.


Ready to add the right serum to your daily routine? Start by first determining your skin type. Dry, oily, combination, and/or sensitive skin all have different requirements to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance. Lastly, when using a face serum, you must remain consistent - especially if you're hoping to reap the anti-aging benefits. Using a serum for four to six weeks before assessing its performance is an efficient way to find the ideal face serum to fit your needs.
