Facial Oil vs Facial Serum – Is One Better?
Facial Oil vs Facial Serum: Which One Should You Use?
There are so many types of skincare products, it can be hard to keep up with what does what. Particularly the difference between a facial oil vs facial serum. While they may look the same, they actually provide different results.
So, is one better than the other? Not at all! Let’s take a look at the unique properties of face oil vs serum.
Facial Oils are used to moisturize and provide an extra surge of hydration to the skin. Oil is excellent if your lipid barrier is damaged, mostly from over-exfoliating or environmental pollution.
Facial Serums target specific skin concerns. They are usually lightweight and best when layered under an oil, balm, or cream moisturizer. You can find deep penetrating serums for skin brightening, balancing, pigmentation, moisture-barrier repair, and more!
The Supernova Skin Soothing Serum
Of course, we love our Supernova Skin Soothing Serum. It’s soothing, multifunctional, and works to provide a velvety soft texture for your skin. Our serum is non-greasy and non-oily, leaving your face feeling fresh all day.
Tips for Using a Facial Serum
If you’re still unsure about using a facial serum, here are some tips from our skincare experts:
- Clean first! Washing your skin with a facial cleanser is always recommended before applying any other product.
- Apply evenly. For the best results, apply an even coat using pressing motions. As serums are lightweight, it’s ideal to start with a small amount and build up the product as you go.
- Use at least once a day. Whether you’re a morning or night skincare user (or both), applying a serum at least once a day will be needed to see some results.
