What Are the Different Types of Serums?

Everything you need to know about serums and their effects on your skin

Everyone’s skin is different. From fine lines and acne to sun spots and dullness, there are various issues people want to resolve. However, these skin conditions vary drastically and require customized treatment plans to reach desired results. Implementing serums into your daily routine is an excellent way to give your skin an extra boost of rich and beneficial ingredients. We’ve compiled a list of the different types of face serums you can use to combat various skin concerns.

Hydration Support

One of the most common skin complaints is a lack of hydration. Fortunately, implementing great products into your skincare routine gives your skin the support it needs to heal over time. Humectants and emollients are both crucial components when supporting your skin. Humectants—such as hydrating serums—draw in moisture, and emollients—such as moisturizers—lock in the newly gained hydration.

The best types of serums for dehydrated skin contain hyaluronic acid. The body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, but production slows down with age. Therefore, implementing it into your routine as a topical helps support reduced moisture. We recommend the Revision Hydrating Serum, which you can pick up at The BAWR. You can apply this hydrating serum at night and in the morning to ensure your skin receives constant hydration support. Always lock in your serum with an emollient, too. Use rich moisturizers alongside the serum to ensure your skin retains the hydrating benefits.

Anti-Aging Solutions

As we age, fine lines and wrinkles can appear on the face and body. There are many different types of serums to combat aging, but keep an eye out for the retinol on the ingredient list. If you want a powerful and effective dosage, you can grab the ReveSkin Retinol Essential 1.0 at The BAWR. This Retinol combats fine lines by stimulating collagen production and gives the skin a more youthful and plump appearance. Apply retinol serums at night time before heading off to bed. It will allow the serum to restore your skin overnight while working in tangent with your circadian rhythm.

In the morning, focus on sun protection to combat early signs of aging. Exposing your skin to harmful UV rays can cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop quickly. Pick up some sunscreen at The BAWR to support your skin during the daytime. Investing in a powerful sunscreen will protect your skin from damaging sun rays while concurrently giving your skin a boost of healthy hydration.

Types of Serums to Fight Acne

People of all ages suffer from unwanted acne. The best types of serums for acne-prone skin include salicylic acid. It targets clogged pores and breaks down buildup beneath the skin’s upper layer. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory to reduce unwanted redness and swelling, giving the skin a clearer complexion. Make sure to always apply salicylic acid to clean skin. We recommend starting with the Revision Skincare Gentle Foaming Cleanser, which you can pick up at The BAWR. Its velvety texture and soothing ingredients will prep your skin before serum application. You may use salicylic acid serums in the morning or night, but we recommend applying them every other day and increasing frequency as needed.
