Should Your Face Be Wet Or Dry.


I have been trying to figure out why my skin absorbs all of the serums if it is allowed to dry between products but it its when it is still damp. Serums are light-weight, super concentrated  products designed to target specific skin products. Serums can help decrease dark spots or fine lines and wrinkles.  

You want to make sure what ever product you choose is filled with vitamins and minerals. Look for one that has most of what you want but don't expect to find a product that has everything. Do not apply any product with vitamin C or Retinol in the morning as both makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight.

When you apply serums, make sure it is damp because wet skin is able to absorb ten times the amount of moisture dry skin can. This is extremely important if the product contains hyaluronic acid because this acid helps bind moisture to wet skin.

It is strongly recommended that you rotate serums because applying some of these products can make your skin sensitive and even dry out. In addition, one should not use those potent anti-aging or exfoliating products more than 2 to 3 times a week.  When you rotate your serums, you expose yourself to more of the benefits of all the products.

Before you apply any serum, you need to make sure you've taken time to cleanse and tone your face. When you clean your face, you remove any impurities from your skin and the toning helps balance your facial pH and preparing it for serums. When you clean and tone, you get your skin in the best shape for applying serums and creams so your skin receives the most from all the nutrients.

Once you've applied all your serums, finish it off with some sort of moisturizing cream because serums do not provide the moisturizing power of proper creams.  If you use several different serums, wait at least 90 seconds between each one so your skin has a chance to absorb nutrients before the next one is applied.  Otherwise, you could dilute the efficacy of each serum. 

Make sure you store your serums away from the sunlight in a cool dry location.  This is so the ingredients contained in the serum do not break down. You do not need to invest in a small fridge for all your beauty products. Instead, place them in the bathroom on a shelf as far from the shower and windows as possible or on a shady dresser in the living room.  Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear.  Have a great day.
