MAKE THE CHANGE - can you switch from cream to serum as your one and only moisturiser?

Dollup of Face Cream spread out on white surface

Even though serums and facial oils are hugely popular these days they are still not what most people turn to when they do their regular daily moisturising.  Nivea, Ponds, Oil of Olay, Clarins, L’Oreal, Crem de la Mer!  All the big names, both super expensive and super cheap, are so ingrained in us, some since childhood as the way to moisturise.

Even when we are persuaded by beauty journalists and bloggers that we ‘need’ a serum, it often gets used infrequently as an add- on to our skincare routine and sometimes just languishes at the back of the cupboard. But if you use a serum you don't need to use a cream as well. You are really just doubling up. 

Serums contain all of the good ingredients that may or may not be in your cream moisturisers and none of the fillers and unnecessary ingredients.  This is why some people add a few drops of serum to their moisturiser. I am not saying that creams are bad, just that serums can certainly be a valid replacement and not just an add on. 

I like to apply my serum to clean, damp skin.  Damp is not essential but it feels gorgeous.  I then apply a little foundation which goes on beautifully over serum.  If you use just serum for a week or so, I can guarantee you will not feel the need to go back to cream.  A change is as good as a rest. 
Give it a go :)

Baby Feet
Jojoba oil is in almost all Angelico Serums as it has myriad properties. I discovered it when I first had babies as it works miracles on nappy rash. I swiftly got rid of the thick gloopy cream that other young mothers were encapsulating their babies bottoms with, innocently sealing in moisture which resulted in sore bottoms. I used jojoba oil instead which let the delicate baby skin breath whilst keeping it clean and bacteria free. The results were remarkable. Read the blog to learn more . . .
