Benefits of using a face serum
Serums have quickly become our favourite item in our everyday skincare routine. The benefits of using a serum are numerous. They are amazing for our skin and packed with benefits making face serums perfect for all skin types.
A good quality serum can reduce fatigue, reduce signs of aging and nourish the skin. They glide on smoothly and absorb quickly, meaning serums never leave you with greasy skin!
What is a Face Serum?
A face serum will be your skin’s best friend. A serum is a lightweight, non-greasy formula designed to penetrate deeply into your skin to promote long-term visible benefits. Its formula is a soft liquid, lighter than oils and creams -- making it the perfect addition to your daily skincare routine.
Different Types of Serums
Face serums have become more affordable and boast a variety of benefits, from soothing sensitive skin to fighting the signs of aging.
Serums vs face oils
While serums were traditionally water-based, oil-based serums have become increasingly popular. Both types of serums help create healthy skin, so what’s the difference?
On a technical level, oils are made up of larger molecules which means that while they don’t penetrate as deeply, they can give your skin a boost of hydration and essential nutrition.
Non-oil based serums, like our EPI-gN™ Serum, penetrate your skin more deeply, making them better for your skin’s long-term health, including reducing signs of aging and pigmentation.
Benefits of using a face serum
Benefits of using a serum include:
- Brightening your complexion and lessen dark spots.
- Fighting signs of aging over time.
- Nourishing dry skin.
- Soothing acne-prone and reduce the severity of future breakouts.

Easily Absorbed & Rehydrates Skin
Many serums are packed with hydrating and moisturising ingredients -- but this doesn’t make them a replacement for moisturisers!
Serums provide hydration and prep your skin for other essential skincare products, such as your favourite moisturiser. Its gentle, smooth texture means serums glide on easily and absorb quickly into your skin.
While serums don’t have the important moisturising ingredients of a moisturiser cream, they are packed with active ingredients such as antioxidants and hydrating vitamins such as niacinamide (also known as Vitamin B3) keep your skin healthy and hydrated.
Helps Refine & Minimise Fines Lines & Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging. While we’re proud of our smile lines, an anti-aging serum can help us hold onto our youthful glow for a bit longer.
Some serums specifically target the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. These serums may be rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, as well as hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance that helps retain moisture!
Soothes Sensitive Skin
Some common sensitive skin triggers include:
- Hot water. Always rinse your products off with lukewarm or room temperature water!
- Perfumes and fragrance.
- Artificial preservatives.
Everyone’s skin is different and knowing what ingredients to avoid will help you choose the perfect serum to soothe and nourish your skin.
Protects Skin From Free Radicals
If you’ve never heard of free radicals when it comes to your skin’s health, you’re not alone! Free radicals are molecules in your skin that have become unstable. They can break down your skin’s collagen, create blemishes and general imperfections.
How to combat free radical damage
Antioxidants: Look for serums rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect your skin’s proteins from breaking down and actively rebalance the free radical molecules.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a common and potent antioxidant that helps build collagen, which is targeted by free radicals, and combats the signs of wrinkles.
Reboot Your Skin’s Natural Radiance
Making time for your skincare in your daily routine can be a boost to your overall wellbeing. With the stresses of everyday life, a serum can help even your skin to give it a natural, healthy glow.
Dull, tired skin is often the result of dryness, which can be caused by various environmental factors like the weather, hot water or stress. Since serums are perfect for hydrating and revitalising skin, they are the perfect product to combat dry and dull skin.
Reduces Signs of Fatigue
A combination of stress, free radicals, irritation and dryness can make us look tired, even if we don’t necessarily feel that way.
With regular use, a serum can improve the signs of aging, blemishes and imperfections that make our skin look tired. An ingredient list filled with antioxidants, botanicals and vitamins promotes long-term skin health, helping our skin look youthful and radiant.
