Cream vs. Serum? What to Use

Creams are the most popular form of skin care since they have been in the market for a long time. Cream is a mixture of oil and water and has moisturizing and hydrating properties. It restores sebum and locks in moisture. Generally, creams are more suited for dry skin types and those who live in cold or air-conditioned environments. 

Some heavy creams can clog pores because of their high oil content. This is not good for those with oily and acne-prone skin and those living in humid environments. 

Serum is newer but is getting more popular because it gives better efficacy than cream.  Here are the other reasons why serum is better for you:

1. Serum has high concentration of potent and active ingredients thus more effective.

2. Serum’s formula tends to be simple, without lubricators, thickeners, and oil-based ingredients that may cause skin sensitivity.

3. Serum is liquid-like and lightweight.

4. Most serum lines are packaged in medicine-dropper applicators to dispense just the right amount that your skin needs.

DERMAX Professional recently introduced its Serum Line where you get to bring home SkinStation’s best-seller treatments.

MaxiLight Serum has an intensive whitening formulation to lighten skin discolorations. Its key ingredients are among the world's most popular whitening actives, recognized as safe, clinically proven, and highly effective. You can use this as part of your daily skin care regimen or as post-care for SkinStation's MaxiLight Facial. 

CollaWhite Serum is for firmer, even-toned and smoother skin. It is a combination of anti-aging and whitening actives in one serum. You can use this as part of your daily skin care regimen or as post-care for CollaWhite Facial and Collagenesis.

AxiLight Serum is a concentrated formula to lighten dark underarms, which you can use as part of your daily skin care regimen or as post-care for AxiLight Underarm Whitening Laser and Intensive Underarm Whitening treatments.

For best results, combine multiple sessions of SkinStation treatments and daily use of the DERMAX Serum Line. DERMAX Serum Line is exclusively available in all SkinStation, DERMAX Laser Center, and Blushing Beauty branches nationwide.
