The summer skin care mantra is less is always more and as temperatures rise, finding a low-maintenance skin care routine is a must. Summer skin should look dewy, healthy, and fresh by using the least amount of products possible. The perfect example would be the “I just came back from vacation” glow. Decreasing the number of products used on the face to keep the skin breathable is key to achieving flawless Summer skin. Facial serums are in high demand and their popularity doesn’t seem to be fading anytime soon. A facial serum is a product that can be applied to your skin after cleansing, but before moisturizing. They are made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin. This allows the serum to deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. Usually, facial serums contain some form of an antioxidant, an anti-inflammatory, and a hydrator. Serums can be worn alone or in conjunction with a moisturizer, but should always be layered first. No matter how you choose to wear it the results will be smooth, healthy, and vibrant skin.
Nothing feels better than having clear radiant skin and this summer is the perfect time to get your face in tip-top shape. Picking the right products for your skin type is crucial to achieving good skin. Adding Black-owned serum to your already bomb skin care regime is perfect because they’re lightweight, they absorb easily, and are packed full of wonderful ingredients.
