The Importance of Serums & Debunking Serum Myths

The Importance of Serums & Debunking Serum Myths

People often overlook the importance of serums in their skincare routine and only perform the three basic steps – cleanse, moisturise and apply sunscreen. While these three steps are definitely essential and sufficient for some people, adding a serum to your daily skincare routine will definitely make all the difference!


Wondering why you can’t just use a moisturiser? Think of a serum as the weapon that helps fight your skin care battles like discolouration, fine lines, acne, or dullness – while a moisturiser helps to hydrate the skin by locking in moisture.


What is the purpose of a serum?

A serum’s main purpose is to deliver specialised active ingredients that penetrate deep into the skin. It tackles problems such as anti-aging, brightening, and can also be acne-fighting.


Sigi Skin’s Youth Beam does just that, and it is suitable for all skin types!


Why are serums important?

  1. Minimises the appearance of dark spots
  2. Brightens the look of dull skin
  3. Plumps and reduces wrinkles
  4. Fights sagging skin
  5. Helps to manage acne-prone skin


Debunking myths

Myth #1: Serums are too strong for sensitive skin


This is certainly not true. There are different types of serums for each skin type – dry, oily, sensitive, or for all skin types. It’s about choosing what works best for you. Our Youth Beam can even help reduce the redness and prevent inflammation caused by sensitivity.


Myth #2: You should only use a serum after you’ve hit your 30s


Serums have ingredients that can delay or even reverse the signs of skin aging and damage, but it can also be used to prevent these things from happening. After all, it is never too early to start caring for your skin!


Myth #3: Serums don’t moisturise


Of course they do! When your skin is feeling extra dry, moisturiser alone may not do the job. The Youth Beam Serum contains ceramides that help to hydrate the skin, applying it underneath your moisturiser will help to bring your dry skin back to life.
