What Is The Difference Between Serum & Booster?

Serums and booster provide intensive care for the skin. They look almost the same and it becomes very difficult to differentiate between them. They are used to treat skin problems that are not easily tackled by moisturizers. They care the skin more than these moisturizers do. Investing in a good serum or booster is great if you know what exactly your skin is thirsty for. Read on this article, to decide if you really need one for you.

What Is The Difference Between Serum & Booster?

Serums have become quite popular lately. Most of the leading beauty brands have launched their products in this category. Serums are nothing but concentrated fluids that are extracted or prepared, so as to treat specific problems. They go deep into the surface of the skin and act. They are often very light in texture. The proper way to use it is after toning and before moisturizing. Investing in a good serum is always the best bet. Serums nowadays are available in a variety of kinds such as acne treating serum, wrinkle treatment serum, radiance serum etc.

As the name suggests, boosters boost up the skin. Booster is like a catalyst, they accelerate the whole process. What it does is that it helps in better absorption of the product into the skin, thereby making the product more effective. The texture of booster is mostly runny.

These are nothing but specialized treatments for the skin to amplify the existing the beauty regime. Boosters are mainly used along with moisturizers so as to speed up the whole process. You can mix a few drops of this booster with your moisturizer before application. This way you will get better results from the moisturizer. Some boosters can also be applied to the entire face without mixing with moisturizer. If you are looking to even out your skin tone then you can choose Vitamin-C booster. Vitamin -D can be beneficial for dull skin.

To conclude, I would say that using both of these is not at all essential. But you may use it if you have skin problems to treat for. Serums are great on a day to day basis. Using night serums will make your skin feel good since night time is the best time to repair the skin. Mature skin, dull skin, and acne prone skin would a little more care. If you require that extra care for yourself, then you can go ahead to include a booster in your beauty regime!
