Skin Care is like eating healthy. It is like food to your skin. Have you ever found yourself browsing through your favorite cosmetic brand or the website and you find it hard to navigate yourself through a plethora of cosmetics that are lined up there? I know you get confused about what to pick and what not with the super long ingredients list, hard to pronounce ingredients s and confusing description?
I’m here to guide you!

I have received so may questions in my career about  skin care product, skin care treatment and techniques but I will say that one of the most frequent one is …what is the difference between a cream and a serum?

OK, so you don’t have to go anywhere for this, just keep reading, you will have your answers here. Let me simplify for you and tell you – The Difference.

DO WE EVEN NEED A CREAM OR A SERUM OR BOTH ?

Well, many people ask me what is difference between the two or if there  is even any. Well …there is and a BIG one!

The biggest difference between a serum and a cream is the formulation and what they are meant for – the Creams are meant to treat the skin type whereas serums are to treat the skin concern.

Creams, lotions and emulsion  basically composed of WATER +FATS +ACTIVE INGREDIENTS ( and a bunch of others ingredients that most of the times are REALLY bad for your skin and heath but let’s leave for another blog   )dispersed  in a solution . The are  made of bigger molecules compare to serums and their the main goal of creams is to replenish the skin barrier to protect the outer layer of the skin, which is the upper layer of the epidermis.

On the other hand, serums, have smaller molecules and no fat content, that is why  they’re able to penetrate deeper within the skin barrier. That’s why they can tackle skin concerns compared to the cream.  In serums, since the molecule is smaller so, the absorption is faster and it goes deep into the skin layers.

I guess that by know you know my answer …we need both!

Let me give you an example that will make you understand  what i mean.

You might have combination skin (skin type) and suffer from hyperpigmentation (skin concern)  or have dry skin (skin type) and have suffer from loss of firmness (skin concern).

Probably your next question will be …but Vanessa …what if i don’t know my SKIN TYPE?
