Many people think that a hydrating serum is the same as a face moisturiser or cream, and it is okay to just pick one of them. But if you'll notice, most celebrities and beauty influencers with glowing and plump skin claim that this skincare product is one of their arsenals to keep their appearance dewy and fresh since it works by infusing their skin with added moisture.
At Ultraceuticals, we offer a wide range of hydrating serums for different skin types and concerns, making them popular among dermatologists and estheticians. Visit our online store and find the right product for your skin type and beauty goals.
What does a hydrating serum do?
Face serum has a thinner viscosity than a typical moisturizer, allowing it to deliver higher concentrations of active ingredients to the skin. And because each person has different skin types and issues, there are various serums on the market, ranging from spot correction and brightening to hydration.
A hydrating serum is absorbed more quickly and efficiently than cream, thanks to its lower viscosity. By contrast, cream moisturiser tends to sit on top of the skin layer, so they are primarily used to lock in moisture.
Simply put, face serum and cream should go hand in hand if you want to reap their full benefits.
Meanwhile, one of the most common misconceptions is that serums are only reserved for ageing skin. While it is true that younger skin can benefit from just a gentle foam cleanser , a moisturiser, and daily sunscreen that offers SPF of at least 30, experts suggest that it remains ideal to get into a preventive skincare regimen.
Through a preventive skincare regimen, it's easier to maintain beautiful, youthful-looking skin. After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
How to use a hydrating serum?
A good rule of thumb is to treat your beauty serum as a base layer under heavier products like creams and sunscreen.
You can use a hydrating serum once or twice a day after cleansing your skin. But if you have notably dry skin, it should be applied twice daily to keep its top layer hydrated and supple.
Other types of face serum are best suited for daytime applications, while others are more ideal for night-time use. For instance, anti-ageing face serums are often treated as a night serum because they work better if the body is resting or in repair mode.

Other things you have to keep in mind:
● If you use skincare products with active ingredients that are too drying or irritating, you may want to use a face serum to create a buffering effect.
● When applying skincare products, always start from thinnest to thickest. For this reason, most serums are best used as the first layer - in direct contact with the skin.
● Always apply UV sunscreen with SPF 30 or SPF 50 protection when using serums and other skincare products.
● Look for a facial serum for dry skin that contains high levels of antioxidants because they can help support the hydrating properties of the skin, ultimately giving you that glowing and radiant look.
What are the benefits of using a hydrating serum?
When you enhance your skin's hydration, you help make it more resilient to external factors like pollution and the ever-changing weather. At Ultraceuticals, you can find the best serums, eye cream and moisturisers that contain high levels of antioxidants and other ingredients that can help you maintain a more youthful-looking complexion.
Additionally, hydrating serums contain agents that can improve skin texture and appearance. For this reason, they are ideal if you have a dull and tired complexion due to unhealthy lifestyle choices, fatigue, or even stress.
The best serums have agents that can add a plumping effect to the skin by adding and locking in moisture. If one of your concerns is the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, opt for a face serum that contains Retinol.
Compared to heavier creams, serums have smaller molecules and contain a higher concentration of active ingredients, allowing them to provide faster results. In addition, their light formulation makes it easy for your skin to absorb their hydrating agents.
Another advantage of having smaller molecules is that they can hydrate your skin better without clogging up your pores and causing acne. And because they are often water-based, they also don't leave too much residue, unlike heavy oil-based moisturizers.
And lastly, because a hydrating serum is absorbed quickly into your skin - thanks to its thinner viscosity and water-based formulation - you are not left with a heavy or greasy feeling. And because it feels light, it is the ideal first step when it comes to a skincare routine with lots of layering.
