Why you choose a serum as a man

Waarom je als man ook kiest voor een serum

We start the morning with a shower, a face wash and finally we apply a moisturizer . Once a week maybe another scrub over it and you're done. This is what the average facial care routine for men looks like these days. Nothing wrong with it when the skin doesn't have to endure so much. A good day cream treats the skin well. But if you suffer from dark circles, wrinkles, dry skin or troubled skin, a day cream is often not enough to see a quick change. This is where a serum comes into play. For many men, another vague product that beauticians use.

What is a serum

A serum is a light but very concentrated liquid that is extremely rich in all kinds of extracts. You can see it as a big vitamin boost that you add to a smoothie. Because it is so thin and light, it is also very quickly absorbed by the skin. Because it is so thin and concentrated in active ingredients, it can also penetrate deeper into the skin, giving your skin a better condition faster. It is therefore often in a small bottle that you pay quite a lot for. But you only need very little of it because it is so highly concentrated. However, it is not intended as a substitute for a face cream.

What is the difference with a face cream for men?

Aface cream or day cream contains larger molecules. It is also thicker as a result. It absorbs slightly less quickly into the skin and does not penetrate as deeply as a serum. They can work very well together, but not replace each other. Let's take dry skin as an example. With a serum, your skin is provided with a lot of moisture and nutrients, then the day cream ensures that you do not lose those nutrients. It ensures that the protective layer of your skin becomes better and stronger. The ultimate combination for beautiful and healthy skin that retains its youthfulness for a long time.

Because a serum is so light, it will absorb very quickly. After soaking in, you put on your day cream. Always combine a serum with a day cream for the best effect. A day cream makes your outer layer of skin resistant to external influences and ensures that your skin does not lose more nutrients.
