Make sure that you follow the face serum with a light moisturiser, because some face serums tend to make the skin dry, especially those which is used for acne, pores, and acne scars. Also, face serums show results with regular usage, mostly in case of those anti aging serums, so make sure you use it at least for a month to see any improvement. Changing beauty products frequently will harm your skin, so wait for a few days before changing any beauty product.
Find out the ingredients before choosing a face serum- for those who are looking for a hydrating face serum, look for products with ingredients like essential fatty acids. Similarly, if you are looking for a face serum for acne scars, look for something with anti-inflammatory properties like aloe-vera to soothe the redness and remove pigmentation. The results of the serum will depend upon what your skin needs and what the ingredients of the face serum are. Choose wisely, avoid experimenting too much, and you are one step closer to healthy skin.
