My top 4 serums and why I use them

Hi Ladies,

I don't know about you all, but I did not start using serums until the end of last year. Sometimes I get so lost in the beauty world because there are SO many options and it can be really hard to find what's right for you. I did some of my own research and have been testing out a couple serums. Here is what I used, why I like it & if I recommend them or not.

What should I use a serum? They are packed with active ingredients that can absorb into your skin quickly. They can also penetrate skin deeper better than your moisturizer can.

Personally, I suffer from hormonal acne and because of that I have a LOT of acne scars. What I want my serums to do is help with uneven skin tone balance, acne scars, and help brighten my skin. When searching for a moisturizer, that is what I look for.

PRO TIP: Put a serum on first, you can layer them but give them time to absorb into your skin. Make sure you put on a moisturizer as a last step, think of it as a barrier to lock in your serums.

Now that we have a basic understanding of what serums are and how helpful we can be, I will be sharing the ones that have been making a difference for my skin.

1. Eminence 8 Greens Youth Serum - The active ingredients in this serum are meant to tighten and brighten skin. This product is organic and amazing! I definitely recommend this one.

2. Free Girl Skin Care Serum - This is a plant based serum that with aloe vera that calms skin irritations. This is great for my sensitive skin because it is soo soothing. I love their brand mission and would definitely recommend this purchase.

3. Derma-E Vitamin C concentrated Serum -  This serum is meant for brightening your skin tone and uneven skin tone. Vitamin C is a great serum to have in your daily routine and I use this one every morning!  The price point of this one is great and I would definitely recommend it.

4. Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening - This item has huge claims but it lives up to them! This product says that you will see difference in your skin in just one week. I use this product nightly and I really do see a difference. The consistency is a little sticker but your skin will absorb it fast. This one is really good for hyper pigmentation and age spots. I will definitely repurchase this product.

The thing I love about serums is that you can layer them, you just have to give them time to dry. In the morning I usually use the Free Girl Serum and The Vitamin C, and in the night I use Murad and Eminence. This is what I find works for me and helps my skin.

I hope you guys found this post helpful and you learned something! What is your favorite serum?
