There were creams, oils, even lotions, but then came Face Serums.
Face Serums are ultra-light non-sticky formulations with active ingredients that penetrate into the deeper layer of the skin and target specific skin concerns. Unlike oils or creams, that are oil or water-oil emulsion-based, serums are strictly water-based solutions. The properties of a serum make it lighter than a moisturizer but, slightly denser than water. For this reason, even small doses can be very effective in taking care of your skin problems. Serums can be applied with a dropper & have superior spreadability, absorption, and are designed especially for enhanced active delivery.
How do you use it?
Most face serums are advised to be used twice a day all week, but serums with Vitamin C concentration are to be used less frequently. The serums are pretty easy to use, just wash your face prior & use the dropper provided to pour a few drops directly onto your face. Then, gently massage the drops in a circular motion for proper absorption.
What do you use it for?
Serums are designed to target specific skin problems. The ingredients of face serums are a carefully chosen amalgamation of various beneficial biochemical compounds, that go deeper into your skin & start the healing process. There are various problems that these tiny elixirs solve, like:
1. Fine Lines & Wrinkles:
The signs of ageing catch up with your skin sooner or later, but there’s a way in which you can prevent its effects from completely taking over your skin; FURR Skin Illuminating Face Serum, infused with 20% Vitamin C, this serum not only reduces wrinkles, fine lines, & hyperpigmentation but also prevents free radical damage.

FURR Exfoliating Face Serum cleanses your pore deeply & provides multilevel nourishment to your skin. It clears out the dead skin cells, thus rejuvenating your skin.
3. Excess Oil & Blackheads:
There are various types of skin types, but the one that causes the most trouble is oily skin. When the sebaceous gland starts producing sebum at an excessive rate, your skin becomes more oily & shiny. But, that’s not all, oily skin is more prone to blackheads & whiteheads, but what can be done about it? FURR Anti Acne Face Serum, created with 2% Salicylic Acid clears out your skin by controlling the sebum production, thus balancing the oil on your skin. Furthermore, the serum reduces & prevents acne, acne marks, blackheads & whiteheads.
4. Dull Skin: All work and no care, dulls your skin! Dirt & pollution can rob your skin of its natural glow and even tamper with your skin’s texture. Your skin needs daily maintenance and care to stay in shape, but how? FURR Daily Repair Face Serum, equipped with Sea Algae, supercharges your skin & restores its radiance. It also enhances your skin texture & evens your skin tone.
5. Dry & Inflamed Skin:
Your skin loses moisture if you don’t put in enough effort to get the right kind of nutrition to it. The sun can tan your face and make your skin look inflamed, dry, & dull. FURR Hydrating Face Serum, curated with 10% Niacinamide, 02% Hyaluronic Acid, & Zinc hydrates your skin’s deeper layer and reduces the appearance of blemishes. It further helps your skin retain moisture and look plump & healthy. The serum also slows down the signs of ageing and improves your skin’s texture.
