Our body’s skin is thicker compared to our face, and it’s got different hair follicles, oil glands, and sweat glands. So, it needs some extra TLC! That’s where body serums come in!

Think of it as a supercharged version of your face serum. Packed with powerful actives and ingredients. They come in all sorts of formulations, depending on what your skin needs. We’re talking vitamins, plant extracts, antioxidants – you name it! These little miracle workers can tackle everything from anti-ageing to repairing damage, and even prevent acne and scars.

How do you pick the right one?

Just like your face serums, different body serums target different concerns. If you want that glowing, exfoliated skin, look for ones with AHAs. Antioxidant-packed serums are best for anti-ageing benefits. And if your skin needs hydration, reach for the ones with hyaluronic acid and ceramides.
But before you dive headfirst into body serums, check in with your dermatologist, especially if you have any skin conditions. It’s all about finding the right fit for your skin type and concerns to get maximum benefits.

Two ways, option one: slap it on your damp skin right after a shower, then follow up with a moisturiser. Option two: go for the sandwich method! Moisturiser first, then serum, and another layer of moisturiser. Even if you don’t have specific skin concerns, body serums are perfect for keeping your skin hydrated and happy, especially when the weather goes all cray-cray!
