Moisturises are fun and an important part of our skincare routines. And let’s admit, during those lazy days when we can’t get ourselves to do a full skincare routine, we just wash our face and moisturise it. What we should add to this quick skincare routine is a face serum that’s perfect for your skin. Face serums are more effective than moisturizers when it comes to hydrating your skin as they have tinier molecules so your skin absorbs it quickly. Worry not, you need not buy exceptionally high-priced products because TC46 has curated your go-to list of affordable face serums.
Here is how you can layer your skincare correctly, straight from a Dermatologist.
