What Are Mens Serums?
Serums are formulas which have a concentration of active ingredients and contain vitamins and antioxidants. They are composed of small molecules which can quickly penetrate the deeper dermis layer of the skin. Serums can help with skin concerns such as the visible signs of stress, aging, sensitivity and sun damage on the skin. They are a great addition to any mens skincare regime.

Mens Serum Vs. Moisturiser?
Moisturisers are creamier and serve to hydrate skin and help prevent moisture loss. Serums have concentrated ingredients and smaller particles which penetrate to the deeper dermis layers of your skin. When used together, moisturisers lock in your serum, and the serum can enhance the hydrating effects of your moisturiser.
How to apply a Serum?
You only need a very small amount of serum to your face. Always read the instructions on the bottle, 2-3 drops or 1-2 pumps is often recommended. Apply to clean skin after using skin toner and before your moisturiser.
When To Use A Serum?
Serums can be used in the morning or night.
