Why do I need both serum and moisturizer?

With millions of skin care products available, it can be confusing when it comes to getting the most out of your routine. We are often being asked about serums vs moisturizers, let’s break it down so you can get better skin results. 

Serums are more lightweight, and a great serum should contain a high concentration of active ingredients such as antioxidants, vitamins, peptides, or hyaluronic acid. Serums are designed to penetrate deep into the skin to deliver potent active ingredients directly to the cells.  

This is why we developed Emani Sleep & Renew Serum. It’s a super Anti-Aging Serum with 0% water and over 85% fermented probiotics, apple and papaya fruit extracts to promote cell turnover, collagen production and flood your skin with nutrients for vibrantly looking skin. Sleep & Renew can be used for post-peel, laser treatments, and micro-needling care where newly developing skin needs rich nutrients to help aid in cellular renewal and microbiome strengthening. 

Moisturizers are thicker in texture,  formulated to provide hydration and create a protective barrier on the skin's surface. Moisturizers are essential for maintaining skin hydration and improving the skin's overall texture. If you are struggling with acne or have ultra-sensitive skin, Perfect 10 was developed with your needs in mind. Formulated with a  blend of 10 healing plant-based ingredients to balance, promote hydration, and help to reduce breakouts. Perfect 10 Serum can be used after peels, laser treatments, or micro-needling where skin feels inflamed and needs immediate soothing relief. 

How to use it and in which order? 

Serums should be applied on clean skin first, followed by a moisturizer. Serums have a lightweight and thin consistency, making them ideal for layering under other skincare products or makeup. Moisturizers create a more occlusive layer on the skin, which helps to trap moisture and protect the skin from pollution.  

Our mission is to help every woman achieve healthier skin. Emani is dedicated to creating powerful all-natural formulas that address the source of concerns while reviving skin to peak exuberance.
