One question we get asked a lot is, “Do I really need to use a serum?”

Most people are just not aware of what a serum is or what it’s supposed to do.

Serums are special. They are highly concentrated treatments that powerfully target different skin concerns with a mix of potent, active ingredients. 

Serums usually come in a liquid or gel-like texture and contain high concentrations of their active ingredients. These ingredients are formulated in small molecules that can penetrate your skin and work at a deeper level.

Serums pack in beneficial ingredients like antioxidants, skin-replenishing, and skin-restoring ingredients. And most target specific concerns, like acne or wrinkles.

Many clinical studies have demonstrated that serums work for everything from fine lines to hydration and sun damage. And dermatologists, like Dr. Abigail Waldman, Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School, highly recommend serums as effective treatments.

For example, the LuxeOrganix Kakadu Vitamin C Brightening Serum is an anti-aging skin brightener.  It was created to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and blemishes while lightening any dark spots and hydrating your skin.

The quality of the ingredients in a serum really matter since these are designed to penetrate your skin and work deep below the surface. Serums leave little, if anything, on the surface of your skin.

We use ingredients that include:

  • Botanical hyaluronic acid and organic Reishi mushrooms. This power-duo holds moisture, reduces inflammation, puffiness, wrinkles & free radical damage, while also promoting cell regeneration.
  • Kakadu Plum extract: Kakadu Plums contain 55 times more Vitamin C than an orange. A super Vitamin C skin lightening tonic, this is essential for glowing skin — it also firms and promotes fading of brown sun spots & acne scars.
  • Organic Willow Bark to soothe irritated skin with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits. When used daily, this can reduce swelling and redness and even help get rid of bacterially-induced acne.

Plus, we leave out harsh ingredients and artificial fragrances, which can irritate skin.

Serums Are Easy To Use

A targeted skincare treatment that will clear your pores and soften your wrinkles and fade discolorations and hydrate and brighten your skin?

Yep! That’s exactly what they can do.

But, knowing how and when to apply a serum can be confusing, especially when most of us barely remember to remove our makeup before bed, or use a sunscreen every day.

It’s actually pretty simple; use your serum after cleansing, and before moisturizing. So, an easy, serum-inclusive skincare routine might look like this:

  • Cleanse
  • Serum
  • Moisturize

When you apply the serum, smooth it over your face and gently pat it in. Allow a minute for it to be absorbed before you apply your moisturizer.

Do this twice each day and you’ll be well on your way to softer, younger-looking skin that lasts a lifetime.

Serum Benefits All Ages

Just like it’s never too soon to start being physically active or eating mindfully, it’s never too soon to take care of your skin.

Using serums loaded with potent ingredients that fignt signs of aging and the impact from the environment means you’ll be on track for getting (and keeping) beautiful skin.

The same way your body never “gets used” to eating foods rich in nutrition, your skin will never get used to ingredients that nourish it. Your skin craves generous amounts of beneficial ingredients to help it stay healthy and younger-looking. Using a serum at a younger age does not mean it will not work “when you really need it.” Beneficial ingredients will work for your skin every day of your life.

Of course, serums work after signs of aging appear, but using one sooner is always better than later, especially with your skin! Using a serum before your skin looks old (has wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dryness) will keep your skin from showing signs of aging for longer.

And serums can also work to benefit concerns younger skin has, like acne or excessive oil production. A good serum will calm and help balance your skin, which will keep it clear and stop the over-production of oils that can clog your skin.

Who doesn’t want that?
