Nighttime is a great time to give your skin some extra pampering since you’ll be out of the sun and moderately still while you sleep. Serums contain high concentrations of active ingredients, and can be used in combination with other facial products depending on your skin’s needs and type. So, what’s the best facial night serum for you and your skin? Here’s a deeper look into night serum benefits and why nighttime is the best time to apply.
A Little Goes a Long Way
Serums aren’t a necessity for most people, but they do offer a wide range of benefits. Because of how they are formulated, serums contain high concentrations of active ingredients, which can either add potency to other facial products, or deliver high concentrations directly to problem areas on the skin.
Water-based serums are best suited for individuals with oily skin, whereas those with rich textures, work well on people with dry skin. Active ingredients generally include pure vitamin extracts, antioxidants, peptides, retinoids, botanicals, and alpha or beta hydroxyl acids. It is very important to select a serum containing active ingredients that are actually active, such as the anti-oxidant couple vitamin C and vitamin E, vitamin B3, non-acid exfoliating agents, anti-inflammatory agents etc.
According to the selected active ingredients, a serum can protect skin from free radical peroxidation, can promote the fading of age spots and the soothing of blemishes, all of which make for youthful looking skin. Anti aging serums that contain exfoliating ingredients will reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles
Night Serum Benefits
The best facial night serum for your skin will depend on what skin care goals you would like to attain. Night serums can benefit everyone, and can be easily added to your regimen. Before you go to bed, apply a few drop of your preferred night serum on to your face and neck. While you sleep, the serum’s active ingredients will have plenty of time to absorb. If you want the best facial night treatment for your skin, try a night serum to ensure you get the most out of your active ingredients, and to make it an easy addition to your skin care routine.
