SERUM LAYERING

SERUM LAYERING

A common practice - but is layering serums exponentially beneficial?

The truth is skin issues can arise when layering two or three different serums with different functions in one application.

 

Our thoughts on why you should NOT layer serums:

  • The preservatives and pH of one formula might cancel the functional ingredients in another layered serum.
  • The second or third layered serum may not absorb properly and could affect how your skin texture feels.
  • Your moisturizer might not spread well or properly work, due to multiple layers of products underneath it.
  • Serum layering isn’t a sustainable practice because of overuse and overspending on unnecessary products.

 

The best way to use multiple serums to address different skin concerns is to use, for example, a hydrating serum in the morning and a retinol or acid-based serum at night, or alternate serums every other day. This allows the serum to work in the way it was designed.
