How to Layer Serums

How to Layer Serums

Many people are starting to use serums more nowadays. These lightweight boosters help the skin by providing a concentrated amount of nutrients to the skin. They help revive and correct imperfections. They can also help prevent skin damage. The best part about them is that you do not only have to use only one! These beautiful lifesavers can be layered onto the skin to help correct skin concerns.  

Much like with cleansers and toners, the appropriate serums that your skin needs depends on your specific skin type and concerns. Furthermore, your specific skin concerns also dictate which serums you should use first. This being said, you do want to use your lightest products and your thicker products last. 

Serum Home Care Tips:

  • For Dry Skin: Serums are a great way to  help correct dry skin by providing the skin with much needed moisture. Some great serums to use for those with dry skin are Essential Face Therapy and Moisture B5 Serum. First start with Moisture B5 in order to supply your skin with more moisture to combat the dryness of your skin. (If you have really dry skin, use Nourish B Intensive Moisture instead of Moisture B5.) Then after Moisture B5 has been absorbed into your skin, use Essential Face Therapy in order to help provide much needed nourishment to your skin and leave the skin feeling silky and smooth. These two serums help correct dry skin by providing moisture and nourishment as well as helping the skin retain moisture.

  • For Anti-Aging: For those who want to lessen the look of wrinkles, fine lines, and wrinkles serums are a great way to help provide the skin with the necessary nutrients in order to do so. Some great serums for anti-aging are Collagen Stemedic Factor and EGF/FGF Marvel Serum. First use Collagen Stemedic Factor to provide your skin with collagen, which helps the skin become plumper and smoother. Then after the Collagen Stemedic Factor has been absorbed into the skin, use EGF/FGF Marvel Serum in order to assist the skin cells’ natural regrowth and wound healing to occur. These two serums help correct aging skin by supplying the skin with collagen and proteins that the skin has started to decrease production of.  

Layering serums is a great way to achieve corrective results. The best thing about serums is that you can literally mix and match almost all serums to meet your needs. That being said, if you have oily skin, keeping your serum use to only one or two at most is recommended as more can cause your skin to become even more oily. Furthermore, it is recommended to use at most 3 serums at a single time as more can reduce the effectiveness of the serums. Although it is true that most of DBH’s serums can be mixed and layered together the following serums should not be layered with other serums: Vitamin C10 and Vitamin C20 (acidic serums), Colorlite Corrective Serum, Nu Stem Peptide Culture, and Life Duo. These serums are very strong and work best alone. 

So whether you currently only have one and are trying to figure out if you can add more serums to your routine or if you have twenty, layering serums can be a fun and relaxing way to rejuvenate your skin! So go forth and find the mixture that makes your skin smile and feel radiant!
