UP-ING YOUR SERUM GAME
SERUMS are the game changers in your skincare routine. They are the powerfully active treatment that can do everything from tackle pesky hyperpigmentation, hydrate and plump fine lines, or exfoliate and smooth your skin. The way you apply your serum can make a HUGE difference in kicking your results up a notch. Here’s our tips to getting the most bang for your buck!
1. Start with a Clean Face
There’s absolutely no point in applying skincare to an un-washed face – it will only sit on the surface above the grime of the day. By thoroughly cleansing morning and night, you ensure the best penetration of the products that follow.
2. Spritz, Spritz, Spritz
This step transformed my skincare game - By prepping your skin with a mist, you can ensure better absorption and maximise your serum’s results. Damp skin acts like a sponge, quickly absorbing any products you put on it. So try prepping with our our Facial Antioxidant Mist, to ensure your serum will penetrate deeper and maximise its’ results.
3. Placement is Key!
The order of applying and layering your products matter! An easy rule of thumb - lightweight to heavy! First apply thinner, water-based serums to ensure antioxidants penetrate the skin, then follow with thicker, richer oils and moisturisers last. Check out our perfect skin care routine order here.
4. Finding “The One”
Our skin is always changing, and no two days are the same. In the morning, assess how your skin is feeling. Dry? Use a super hydrating serum like this. Feeling run down? Try using a Vitamin-C treatment like this. Hungover? Boost your collagen with a serum like this. Or better yet, mix and match your favourite serums to get all the benefits!
MERME Tip: If you’re really in a rush, you can mix a pump of your serum into your moisturiser and apply it together all over your face and neck. No excuses, here!
