What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you talk about face serums? That they are used for anti-ageing and moisturizing only. They are heavy in texture and expensive, meant only for dry skin.
Contrary to popular belief, serums are fast-absorbing, light liquids which penetrate deep into the inner layers of the skin. Although there are a different variety of them available in the market, there are some serums which are water based.
These serums are light and non-sticky and also have oil-absorbing properties, making them perfect for oily skin too.
Serums And Creams
The difference between serums and other creams is that serums do not contain thickeners. They only include potent ingredients which go deep inside our skin and give us effective results.
Because the serums are light-weight and non-greasy, they absorb quickly and leave no traces on the skin.Serums are definitely expensive than most of the creams. But only a little quantity is required to cover your entire face.
Serums are usually packed in small pump bottles which discharge only the required amount of the liquid. This results in less wastage and maximum usage. This means that although it may be expensive, you do not necessarily have to buy it every month as a small bottle will last up for up to three months.
Are Serums Suitable For Oily Skin?
Now that we have a vague idea about what a serum is, let us see if it is suitable for oily skin as well.
There is excess oil production in oily skin which needs to be controlled. Some serums also have oil absorbing properties which reduce oil control and decrease the shine.
As oily skin is prone to acne, the products should be non-comedogenic and exfoliate the skin surface to clean residue build-up. Most of the serums in the market are water based, making them non-comedogenic. Look for ingredients such as salicylic and glycolic acid, which exfoliate the skin. These ingredients also reduce sebum production.
Oily skin can flare up easily. That is why there are no chances of using a heavy night cream which will repair and rejuvenate the skin. Serums being light weight and water based are extremely potent and can safely be used at night. Anti-ageing serums work great to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Serums are a great skin elixir. The best way to derive maximum benefits out of them is to use them after a toner but before applying a moisturizer. That way it is easily absorbed into the skin.
Now that you know what it can do to your oily skin as well, what are you waiting for?
Get a bottle of one soon, flaunt your flawless skin and let them keep guessing your little secret.
