I have said this in my previous articles that it is important to take care of your skin when on the go. Your skin goes through a lot when you are travelling. So, it’s very important to take extra care of your skin when you are travelling. One way by which you can do this is face serum. This article will be everything you want to know about face serums and recommendations for your type of skin.
What Is A Face Serum?
Face Serum is a lightweight concentrated liquid with active ingredients that get into the deeper layers of the skin and replenish it. Ther reason that face serums are able to penetrate so deeply is that they are formed with ingredients which have smaller molecules. This allows them to get absorbed in the skin easily. Often people are confused about face serums and moisturisers. No, moisturisers and face serums are totally different from each other. Moisturisers are heavy, face serum is not. Moisturisers are more active on the surface of the skin, face serums work on and beneath the skin.
How Does It Help?
Face serum works on the surface of the skin as well as deep within the skin. It targets the skin concerns that begin deep within the skin, such as dryness, breakouts and loss of elasticity. Face serums reach where most of the other skin care products don’t.
How To Use A Face Serum?
The one thing that you have to keep in mind is that face serum should be applied just after cleaning and just before moisturising your skin. That way, it can penetrate deep into the skin and make your skin healthier. Applying it after the moisturizer will restrict the penetration and the potent ingredients will not be able to work as they should.
What Is The Correct Serum For Your Skin Type?
Face Serum for Dry Skin
When you have dry skin, your skin needs extra care while travelling. Dry skin can catch infections very easily and using just a moisturiser will not be beneficial. Enter serums! Here are a few serums for dry skin that will be helpful for your skin.
Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow
Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow, unlike other serums, is not very expensive (30mL comes for INR 799. It comes in a clear glass bottle with a dropper which is perfect because a few drops will be sufficient.
It contains five natural oils that are Babassu oil, Marula oil, Passion fruit oil, Green fruit oil and Linseed oil.
It’s a very lightweight face serum with a thin consistency. It is full of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants that help in rejuvenating your skin. The packaging is small so can be carried in your bag easily. Works best when used at night.
St Botanica Hyaluronic Acid facial Serum
St. Botanica hyaluronic acid facial serum contains hyaluronic acid that is more than you can ask for in a facial serum.
Hyaluronic acid is produced in your body naturally, 50% of which is produced in the skin itself. The basic feature of this acid is that it holds water and moisture in your skin.
The concentration of the hyaluronic acid is high in this serum and that helps in retaining moisture for a longer time. It is light in texture and completely non-greasy. Over a period of time, the texture of your skin will improve and you will fall in love with this serum.
Can also be used for oily skin type!
Clarins Double Hydric+lipidic Serum
Clarins Double Hydric Serum contains Oat Sugars, Orthosiphon Extract that helps to improve the skin texture and Callicarpa Extract that revives the radiance of the skin. It also contains Silybum Marianum Seed Oil that helps in hydrating the skin and keeping it moisturised for a longer duration. It is one in all product as it also helps if your skin has been damaged because of the pollution and UV rays.
It works like a charm on dry skin but people with sensitive skin and oily skin will be more than happy to use it.
Face Serum for Oily Skin
A few people have a misconception that those who have oily skin should not use serums. Not true! Using a serum will nourish your skin. Unlike moisturisers, they will go deep and nourish it.

Theraneem Naturals Facial Oil Serum works great on oily skin and soothes the skin simultaneously. It replenishes the blemish-prone skin and also helps in controlling the blemishes. This face serum contains sea buckthorn that helps in balancing the skin tone and also improve the skin texture.
