Choosing the right serum is one of the most difficult things to do. Look out for ingredients that will improve the texture of your skin, repair blemishes and keep your skin firm. If your skin is not sensitive, get a serum with mixed ingredients such as vitamin C, retinol, antioxidants, and kojic acid.

For day wear, choose an antioxidant serum as it helps to protect the skin.

Use the evening as the time to repair damage from the day and help stimulate collagen, using a serum that includes retinol, growth factors and peptides.


¦ To get the best benefits from a serum, use it as recommended on the label.

¦ Rub it on your face and neck.

¦ Always put the serum on first after cleansing for active ingredients to penetrate as deeply as they can, before applying other creams that might create a barrier.

¦ In the morning apply serum after cleansing, but before moisturiser and sunscreen.

¦ In the evening apply serum after cleansing but before night cream.
