In the quest for radiant skin, serums have become a game-changer in the world of skincare. These potent elixirs are formulated to target specific concerns. A serum provides a concentrated dose of active ingredients. But when flooded with options, selecting the perfect formula can be overwhelming. Fear not! This guide is designed to simplify the process and help you choose the right magic elixir for your unique skincare needs.

What is a serum used for?

Known for their effectiveness, face serums are often used to manage specific skin concerns such as wrinkles, acne, dry skin and dullness. They are designed to brighten, hydrate and provide a variety of benefits, depending on the type you use.

What do serums do?

When applied before moisturising, serums deliver a healthy dose of potent ingredients at the deepest layers of the skin. We think no product does this better than Platinum Advanced Tight Firm & Fill Face Serum. Our non-invasive solution gives you firming and line correcting results that work at super speed AND also get better over time

How do serums work?

They usually feature concentrated doses of active ingredients in a water-based matrix. The lightweight consistency of serums enables these active ingredients to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers for targeted treatment.

Choosing the best Nutrimetics serum 

  1. Identify your skincare goals

First, pinpoint your primary skincare concerns. Are you looking to combat fine lines, brighten your complexion, or target dry skin? Knowing your goals will guide you in selecting a serum tailored to your needs.

  1. Research key ingredients

Understanding the ingredients in skincare products is crucial. Here are some powerful serum ingredients to look for.

  1. Consider your skin type

Different skin types have distinct needs. If you have oily skin, opt for oil-free, lightweight serums to prevent excess oil build-up like Moisturising System. Dry ageing skin? Look for serums rich in firming actives like Restore PRO Intense Serum. For sensitive skin, choose serums with soothing natural extracts like Beauty Elixir.

  1. Look for extras

Don’t settle for just the basics. Serums can add a power punch of extras. Look for extra benefits, like Antioxidant rich formulas that shield your skin from environmental damage and pollution. White-Age Luminous Skin Serum has added Blue Light Shield to safeguard against pollution. Platinum Advanced Tight Firm & Fill Serum addresses multiple concerns in one, streamlining your routine. Quick-absorbing serums like Beauty Elixir works especially well under makeup and other skincare products.

Platinum Advanced Tight, Firm & Fill Face Serum Serums are the most effective step in skincare if you are looking for needle-free results. So now is the time to try our miracle skin transformer that works in under 15 minutes*. If deep wrinkles and fine lines, lacklustre skin or the visible signs of ageing are your main concerns, be sure to include this powerhouse serum into your routine. The serum contains the similar premium and effective ingredients found in department store serums that cost upwards of $300+. Platinum Advanced Serum is our most potent serum. It’s made with cosmeceutical grade, advanced ingredients. Quad-Peptide technology instantly gives skin a tightening, wrinkle relaxation effect. It is suitable for all skin types and addresses many common skin ageing concerns.

What is the best age to start using face serum?

You should start using face serum in your early twenties. You may begin to notice the early signs of ageing mid-twenties. So, 20-25 years is the right age to start for preventative and reparative results. Remember, the platinum range is ideal for all skin types and ages.

Can I use two Nutrimetics serums at once?  

Yes, depending on your skin’s needs if you wish to address different concerns. For example, you may use Platinum Advanced Tight Firm & Fill Face Serum in the morning to target multiple signs of ageing. You may use White-Age Luminous Skin Serum in the evening to help visibly improve pigmentation.

What’s the difference between a serum and a booster?

  • BOOSTER A booster acts like a complimentary power shot to enhance for your regular skincare routine. They’re formulated with a high concentration of one specific active ingredient in order to  target a unique concern. (IE: use Aqua Supply Booster to fight extreme winter dehydration).
  • SERUMS are water-based and highly concentrated. Their molecule size is much smaller than an oil so it can absorb quicker and deeper into the dermis layer of your skin. This makes them extremely effective for reparative and preventative skincare results.

Best serum application tips

  • Order matters

Apply your facial serum before you moisturise and after you cleanse and tone, to optimise results. An easy rule to remember when working through skincare is to apply products in order of texture, (thinnest to thickest).

  • Give serum time to absorb

After you apply, take a few moments to let it settle. Once the serum has fully absorbed, it will penetrate deeply.

  • Less is more

The formulas are highly concentrated. Begin with just a few drops warmed between your fingertips. You can always add more if needed after.

  • They are a ‘skin-investment’

If you’re price conscious, serums are typically more expensive than the rest of your skincare. They are made of expensive ingredients like Peptides and advanced Actives. They also don’t contain filler ingredients, enabling them to absorb deeper. That level of effectiveness will cost a little more than a moisturiser.

Final thoughts

Selecting the right formula for your skincare regime doesn’t have to be daunting. Armed with the knowledge of your skincare goals, key ingredients, and your skin type, you’re well on your way to discovering the serum that will revolutionise your routine. Remember, consistency is key. Give your chosen one time to work its magic. Your true glow will shine through in no time.
