Do I really need a serum in my skincare routine, is a question I get asked a lot. This is how I like to sum it up. A moisturiser’s main function is to prevent moisture from leaving your skin, almost like a seal. A serum is what does the magic work in the skin. The kind of serum you choose is personal and depends on what your concerns are. Do you have pigmentation and want to work on reducing that? Do you want to brighten your skin or is hydration what you’re after? For me, it’s all of the above and that’s why I’m loving SKOON Wow-Wow Wonder.
A serum that has hyaluronic acid (bringing the hydration factor) and vitamin C (think brightening). What does vitamin C do for the skin? It’s a powerful antioxidant that helps to neutralise free radicals caused by pollution. These free radicals if left unchecked, damage DNA in the skin and cause ageing, pigmentation, dry and dull skin. Still think you don’t need a serum?
