Not sure why you should be using a serum? We’ll talk you through it.
The second step of our Roe Routine is: Treat. And by ‘treat’, we mean using a target serum to treat a specific skin concern. Neatly positioned between cleansing and moisturising, it’s an important step particularly when it comes to skin goals like brightening, hydrating, and anti-ageing.
So What is a Serum Exactly?
A serum is a concentrated skincare formulation which contains active ingredients to help zero in on a specific concern or skin goal, and sometimes more than one simultaneously. A serum is usually quite lightweight in texture and thinner than a moisturiser, which enables it to more efficiently penetrate the skin and get into the deeper layers to get s*** done. [Not a technical term of course, but one that gets a workout at Dr Roebuck’s HQ.] A serum goes on freshly cleansed skin and needs to be applied before a moisturiser so all that active goodness can be easily absorbed.
We’re such big believers in the transformative powers of a serum that we’ve created a range of clean formulations designed to do different things for different skins. We’ll talk you through our Dr Roebuck’s serum wardrobe to help you find the perfect serum for your skin’s needs and goals.
