These Face Serums Will Leave You With Baby Smooth Skin | Clozette

If you’ve ever wondered what the difference of a serum is from a moisturiser, just think of it as a moisturiser “on fleek”. Its ingredients are more potent and its liquidy texture allows it to penetrate your skin deeper, giving you a higher dose of nutritious and nourishing ingredients.


But if you have ever questioned a serum's importance, we'll put it this way: they can make or break your skincare routine. Find the right one and we guarantee you’ll never be able to live without it. Yet, because there are numerous variations out in the market today, it’s hard to know which one will complement and pair well with the products you already use. And that’s why we’re here to help!

To give your skincare routine a major upgrade, just keep reading below for the 5 face serums that will leave you with baby smooth skin – soft, hydrated, calm, and flawless!

Our skin type – whether it be normal, combination, oily, dry, or sensitive – is the general guide for our beauty routine. But did you know that different parts of our faces have different needs? While that cleanser and moisturiser works wonders on your whole complexion, it’s another story when it comes to masking and exfoliating which is meant to target specific skin issues.


Masking works wonders on your skin. But contrary to popular belief that each skin type only needs one mask, different parts of your face actually have different needs. This is where multi-masking comes in. Multi-masking is the use of two or more masks in different areas of your face to give each section the attention it needs. For example, if your T-zone is suffering from breakouts and you have dryness on your cheeks, you wouldn’t want to slather on a purifying clay mask all over, right? While that may help with your T-zone, it may overly dry your cheek area, that may lead to breakouts there (yikes!).

If you’re new to the realm of multi-masking or are looking for excellent mask combinations, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Ahead we have 5 different mask combinations to suit a variety of skin needs, and they all make use of The Body Shop’s Superfood Mask collection; products that contain only the best 100% vegetarian ingredients from around the world, and don't have any parabens, parrafins, silicones, and mineral oils!

--------------------------


Brightening


You’ve conquered your acne, but now you’re left with acne marks and pigmentation all over your skin. Fret not, because with this masking combination, they’ll be gone in no time. First, apply a generous amount of Amazionian Acai Energizing Radiance Mask on your cheek area to give it a dose of vitamin C and anti-oxidants.

Next, put the Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask on your T-zone and chin to deeply cleanse and moisturise it. The mixture of the 2 masks’ ingredients will give your skin a boost of radiance and stimulation to help cell turnover and give you a complexion that looks bright, smooth, and energised.

--------------------------


Balancing


For those with combination skin, these are the two masks to take note of: the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask to effectively exfoliate and detoxify your T-zone; and the Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask to comfort and restore your dry cheek area. And after just 5-10 minutes, your skin will feel clean, supple, more youthful, and of course, your oil production will be balanced!


--------------------------


Soothing


Due to rough environmental factors, people’s skin nowadays are more prone to dryness and dehydration. If you suffer from this and want to be relieved from the perpetual feeling of the Sahara Desert on your face, use the Amazonian Acai Energizing Radiance Mask on your T-zone to fight the appearance of fatigue; and the British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask on your cheeks to refine your complexion and erase all signs of dryness. You’ll soon notice that your complexion looks healthy and dewy – who wouldn’t want that?


--------------------------


Heavy Detox


We know that feeling when your complexion is in a rut and it feels clogged and dirty; and you just want something to pull out all the gunk inside. So when you want to give your skin a heavy detox, apply the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask on your T-zone and chin, and the Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask to gently slough away all the dead skin cells and unclog your pores. You’ll then have skin that is deeply cleansed and refined, leaving you with tighter pores and a velvety smooth finish.


--------------------------


Energy Boost

Having a stressful week at work? Or maybe you haven’t been sleeping well? If you want to erase all signs of dullness and fatigue in your skin, use the Amazonian Acai Energizng Radiance Mask on your cheeks and the Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask on your forehead, nose, and chin for an invigorating facial that will instantly give your skin the hydration and anti-oxidants it needs to recharge. Once you’re done, your complexion will look awake and bright -- like you’ve had 8 hours of sleep in just 10 minutes!

Couples have anniversaries, monthsaries, and Valentine’s Day, but what about single people? This is exactly why Singles’ Day was created; to celebrate all the men and women in the world who are proud to be single and won’t let society’s expectations get to them.

There are a number of reasons why being single is great. For one, you get to discover who you truly are and grow into a self-reliant person. Second, you can easily accomplish your dreams and goals such as putting up your own business or traveling the world. It’s no wonder why today, not every one feels the pressure of having to get married. Being single allows you to embrace your independence and live life on your own terms until you’re ready to live that life with someone else.

But if this is the first time you’re hearing of Singles’ Day, then you’re in luck. Below we have a quick guide on this special day that is celebrated every November 11th!
