Why you should use a face serum before going to sleep
If you don’t already use a face serum in your nighttime skincare routine, it’s time to consider using one - especially if you’re finding that you’re not reaching your skincare goals fast enough. Face serums with natural, organic ingredients can bolster the effects of hydrating moisturisers because they provide the skin with myriad benefits; visible anti-ageing results, the easing and soothing of skin conditions, treating sun-damaged skin and much more… And when a face serum has received five stars across the board, won a bronze medal in the Free From Skincare Awards for 2023 and been described as “liquid gold”, then it’s definitely worth adding it to your skincare routine.
What is a face serum?
Face serums really pack a punch. Formulations of concentrated ingredients, face serums deliver active ingredients directly to the skin. In fact, Healthline put it perfectly, “Think of a serum as the secret weapon for treating issues like discolouration, dullness, fine lines or acne.”
The secret weapon you need is our award-winning ultimate anti-ageing elixir and one of our signature products. Simply add Up The Anti to any skincare routine for extra rejuvenating power.
Why use a face serum in your nighttime skincare routine?
Face serums are suitable for people in all Skin Stages. Incorporating a face serum into your nighttime skincare routine can help you manage various skin concerns, such as signs of ageing, dry skin, mild breakouts or acne. Because some face serums can look oily (especially if they’re oozing with natural, organic, cold-pressed oils), many people prefer to use their face serum before bed, to allow the goodness to hydrate and revitalise skin overnight. To use Up The Anti, shake the bottle in the evening, apply six to eight drops to clean skin, and leave it to sink in while you sleep.
What are the benefits of using a face serum?
Many wonder whether a face cream is enough. In some instances, yes, it will be, but if you want to reach your skincare goals sooner rather than later, add a face serum to your skincare routine. Dermatologists believe that face serums contain a higher concentration of active ingredients and work faster than moisturisers. This is because serums are lighter than moisturisers so they penetrate the skin quicker. Pairing a face serum with a moisturiser, and layering your night cream on top of your face serum will help to lock in moisture and encourage the active ingredients in the serum to work on the skin.
What are the benefits of using a face serum with organic, cold-pressed oils?
It can be challenging to find a face serum that’s nourishing and boasts natural, non-clagging ingredients. But you’ll find just this at Tiger Lillies. Our Up The Anti face serum contains three types of organic, cold-pressed oils to help you achieve your skincare goals, the natural way.
Organic emu oil stimulates the skin, rejuvenating ageing or sun-damaged complexions. It effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and has been recommended for treating skin conditions such as skin wounds and seborrheic dermatitis.
Organic carrot seed oil is full of anti-ageing benefits. It combines vitamin A, collagen-boosting vitamin C and moisturising vitamin E. Together, this powerhouse of vitamins helps to smooth lines and repair sun damage, scars and other skin traumas.
Organic frankincense essential oil boasts anti-inflammatory properties to calm red or irritated complexions. Perfect for aggravated and damaged skin, frankincense oil restores the epidermis and calms the affected areas - it’s gentle enough to be used on sunburn, rosacea and breakouts to soothe and nourish.
What about the benefits of botanical extracts in a face serum?
Combining anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as cold-pressed oils with skin-loving botanical extracts means that your skin is not only soothed but deeply nourished. Ylang-ylang is one of our favourite botanicals thanks to its sebum-balancing, skin-renewing and moisture-retaining properties. Pomegranate, too, is a Tiger Lillies favourite because it promotes glowing, gorgeous skin. Over time with continued use, face serums containing pomegranate (like Up The Anti) will smooth the skin’s surface for a radiant appearance.
So don’t rely on moisturiser alone, use a face serum with powerful, natural ingredients to boost your skincare routine and see results.
