Elevate Your Routine: How To Use Serums

Hey Beauties! Fall is here which means humidity is down and cold fronts are on their way, yay! Most of us are probably starting to shift our skincare routines to fit this amazing weather, but if you have not started, no worries, I'm here to show you the serums you could add to your routine to make sure to never let the weather dim your glow.

Why Serums?

 I owned a couple of serums (their consistency made me curious) before I even knew what their benefits were, so trust me, you are not alone if you have no idea what a serum is. After all, skincare should be fun and not stressful! 

When you incorporate serums to your skincare routine, you’ll supply your skin with a blast of nutrients that can benefit your skin and target different concerns like acne, dry skin, dull skin, and wrinkles. Serum is especially formulated to be made up of small molecules that can easily penetrate into the skin and provide a high concentration of active ingredients.

How To Use

Use one to two pumps after cleansing and toning your face, and before applying a moisturizer. Apply the serum to your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. You’ll notice the serum will be quickly absorbed into your skin, rather than sitting on the surface like moisturizers. For best results, use both a daytime and nighttime serum.

The Lineup


Collagen Serum

Need a lift? Take this ultimate beauty serum out for a spin and give your skin the boost of collagen it needs. Collagen is our skins built-in anti-aging protein that helps it maintain fullness, but over time sun exposure and beach days can slow down its production. Made with antioxidant-rich Echinacea, which fights off the bad stuff that breakdowns collagen, put this serum into your daily routine to maintain youthful, bouncy skin.

Vitamin C Serum 25%


A bottle of glow for your skin’s sake. This serum is made with the good stuff, L-Ascorbic Acid, and at 25% of it(that’s a lot), this makes for the ultimate intensive Vitamin C treatment. Suitable for combination, oily, and acne-prone skin, this non-oily formula promotes the formation of collagen for a healthy, even skin tone, reduces fine lines, treats dark spots, discolorations, and sun damaged skin cells. Serums should be used after a cleanser and lotion but before your moisturizer.

Eye Firming Gel

Age is just a number with this anti-aging eye gel that tightens the skin under the eye (or top lip) and improves the appearance of fine lines. Made with Ginkgo Biloba, commonly known for improving memory when taken in tea or supplements, this gel is perfect for sensitive areas such as the eyes and helps the skin protect itself against environmental stressors (like the sun we love so much), reduce puffiness, and dark circles.

B5 Moisturizing Serum

Whether its a 100 degrees or 30, give dry skin the moisture it deserves with this intense hydrating serum. Made with B5 and Hyaluronic Acid, skin will be doused in dewiness for a healthy and youthful glow. 

Vitamin A & C  Serum

Treat your skin from A to C. Vitamin A & C Serum makes sure your face and neck are firm and bright while it gives skin the moisture it craves. This nourishing serum is a powerful one-two punch of Vitamins A and C that reduces skin blemishes, minimizes pores, hydrates and firms the skin to ensure an even and radiant canvas.

Biotech Face Gel

Give your muscles a day off with this anti-aging super formula that stops facial muscles from contracting, which helps decrease the visibility of wrinkles around the lips, eyes, and neck. This age-rewinding gel is made with 5% Argireline peptide technology, which in a study of effectiveness showed that wrinkles around the eyes were decreased by 17% after 15 days and by 27% after 30 days of treatment. Want more?  For even better and longer lasting results, your skin gets a boost from Collagen Recovery Complex which helps to firm and improve skin’s elasticity.

OFRA Peptide Activator

Your eyes are the prize in this ultra-fresh activator. With an easy to absorb fluid texture that smooths to a silky feel, your eyes will be supplied with anti-wrinkle action and an immediate radiance boost. This synthetic silk peptide-based serum is jam-packed with antioxidants that help skin fight every-day pollutants and say goodbye to the effects of time. Recommended for use on the face, neck, around the eyes, top lip area and any area that needs tightening and smoothing.

 OFRA Peptide Silk-C Serum

Peptide Silk-C Serum is next level, period. A unique formula made with Silk Peptides, this creamy serum hydrates while correcting dark spots. Silk-C features Kinetin, a plant hormone, which aids in the regeneration of skin cells. The result? Youthful skin that is beaming like a Glazed Donut. This serum is suitable for all skin types and may be used day or night, on its own, or under a moisturizer.
