With all the anti-aging, pro-youth, Korean, and holistic skin care regimens out there, serums seem to be at the cornerstone of all.
So, to get the best out of your own personalized regimen, it’s best not to sleep on serums, or ampoules, for that matter. Both are products made with highly concentrated and specialized ingredients that have been formulated to deeply penetrate the skin.
The best way to apply these products is under your moisturizer, as they work to boost its beneficial effects.
Differences Between the Two
Serums are usually very thin liquids that are used to target specific skin care conditions or concerns. Because they’re chemically formulated with smaller molecules that are able to penetrate deeper into the skin, they are very effective for addressing various skin concerns.
Even more exciting, serums are usually made with performance ingredients, like vitamins, antioxidants and lipids that work to keep skin youthful and healthy.
Ampoules are generally small little vials that are sealed with enough product for a single application to your skin. What lies inside these little vials, are concentrated extracts that come in either a water base or an oil one. To apply an ampoule product to your skin, you need to break the sealing of the vial, pour out the product, either directly onto your face, or in your hands, then you massage the product in until it has fully absorbed.
Serums and ampoules can be used as a part of your daily, comprehensive skin care regimen, or, for more advanced treatments, like an at-home facial you give to yourself. When used as a part of a facial regimen, you layer on the serums and ampoules under your mask, which pushes the products even further into your skin for a supercharged skin care punch of health and beauty boosters.
