How 10 to Use Face Serums Like a Dermatologist

Start with Clean Skin: Before applying any serum, cleanse your face thoroughly to remove dirt, oil, and impurities.

pply to Damp Skin: For most serums, it's best to apply them to slightly damp skin. After cleansing, pat your skin dry with a towel but leave it slightly damp.

Dispense the Right Amount: Serums are potent formulations, so a little goes a long way. Use only a pea-sized amount of serum.

Warm the Serum: Before applying the serum, warm it between your palms by gently rubbing them together.

Apply Gently: Using your fingertips, gently massage the serum into your skin using upward and outward motions.

Allow Absorption Time: Give the serum some time to absorb fully into your skin before applying any additional skincare products.

Follow with Moisturizer: After the serum has absorbed, apply a moisturizer to seal in the serum and provide additional hydration.

Use Morning and Night: Depending on the ingredients and formulation, some serums are designed for morning use, while others are best used at night.

Other Products: If you're using multiple skincare products, apply the serum after cleansing and toning but before heavier formulations.

Be Consistent: Consistency is key when using face serums. Incorporate them into your daily skincare routine and use them regularly to see the best results.
