The Major Difference Between Facial Serum and Facial Moisturizer: Both are Great for the Skin

There is a difference between a skin serum and a moisturizer! There are many on the market and some are inferior while others will do exactly what they claim. However, you need to add both a serum and moisturizer to your skin routine, if you want to fight off aging.

 Apply them in the morning and at night, especially at night, since sleeping is the time your body does most of its repair work. Be sure to keep your skin clean with soap, gentle natural organic soap, and use a serum and moisturizer daily. Your skin will glow with health while keeping the signs of aging at bay.

 The Major Difference between a Serum and Moisturizer

A serum has a higher content of vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. It also has smaller molecules, so it can enter the pores of your skin and go down through all three layers of your skin.

 A moisturizer contains emollients that protect your skin, but are too big to enter the pores of your skin. They form a barrier between your skin and the outside world, which, by the way, is loaded with chemicals, pollutants and other air born viruses and bacteria.

 Since they complement each other, it’s wise to use both; however, when people buy serum to use they normally end up using way too much of it. Any serum is highly concentrated, so you only need a drop or two. You don’t need the same amount as you do with a lotion or cream moisturizers. As the saying goes, “A little dab will do ya!”

 As with any skin protection routine, using both of them is important to your skin and not just in keeping the wrinkles at bay. The protection moisturizer gives to your skin keeps out viruses and bacteria that can lead to major diseases.

 Apply the serum to a clean face or body, and then protect the serum and the skin with a moisturizer. The moisturizer protects from the sun as well as keeping in the water (hydrated skin) to keep the skin smooth and wrinkle free.

 Another thing to remember when you’re deciding which moisturizer or serum to use is be sure they contain all the natural ingredients your skin needs. If either dries your skin, it’s an inferior brand and you need to find one that contains the ingredients the skin needs to fight off aging.
