Face serum?? Now, what’s with the new frenzy? Suddenly these are everywhere, from drugstores to high-end cosmetic stores, malls and e-commerce sites. Every brand has started making their version of serum. Are you one of them who knows nothing about it? Or, you have already been using them and looking for options? You’ve come to the right place. We’ve got it all covered!
But, just to be on the same page, let’s quickly understand what a face serum is and how different is it from a face oil or a moisturizer.
A serum is a thin, runny and watery essence that infuses efficient and essential ingredients deep into your skin. You apply this after cleansing and before using a moisturizer or any other makeup bases. It’s absorbed quickly and leaves no traces, so there’s nothing to worry about.
There are some daytime serums while some are for the nights. And then, there are some specifically meant for oily or acne-prone skin and some that are age-defying/skin tightening. They come with a dispenser, so you just take a few drops and spread it evenly across your face and neck. You need to use this once a day at least or more depending on your skin type.
And, now, Let’s look at the Top 10 Skin Serums Available In India.
