Why include Serums into your skin care routine

March 31st, 2019

Why would I need to use a serum?

Serums are a powerhouse of active ingredients with the ability to penetrate deeply within the skin targeting your individual skin problems. 

Serums are formulated to have a targeted approach. Gone are the days with oil heavy products which sit in the surface of the skin.

Skin care routines should never be stressful or complicated simplicity and efficiency is key. On occasion more than one serum maybe required and these should be layered thin to thick. The skin must be thoroughly cleansed before application of the serum dot onto the skin don’t rub into the hands first this will waste the product then immediately apply moisturiser and SPF. Easy – but which one to use below are my top five serums suitable for all skin types.  


My top five Juliette Armand serums include 

Retinoid C Serum this is a repairing, antioxidant serum for all skin types.

Action: Serum that combines two powerful active ingredients:

Retinoid HPR 1% and stabilised form of Vitamin C, thus offering multiple actions without irritating the skin. Reduces fine lines, wrinkles, neutralises the action of free radicals and protects the skin from oxidative stress. In addition, it improves the roughness, imperfections and texture of the skin. Skin discolorations and age spots are reduced, delivering a uniform, luminous and dewy appearance.



Folic Acid (B9) Serum Rejuvenating serum for all skin types.

Action: Folic acid 3% (vitamin B9) which is derived from bacterial fermentation offers multiple effects on the skin. It stimulates the metabolism of proteins and strengthens the immune system. It improves and reduces skin imperfections by stimulating cell growth and it offers moisturising and anti-histamine action. It protects the skin from ultraviolet radiation while correcting imperfections and signs of time.


Hydra Bonding Serum

Moisturising, soothing serum specifically formulated for extremely low temperatures and drought conditions. For all skin types.

Action: It contains the ANTARCTICINE (glycoprotein) and PENTAVITIN which shield the skin in synergy with two types of hyaluronic acid (HMW & XSMW) enhancing the skin’s water reserves and reducing transdermal loss. It also contains DERMASOOTH, a blend of plant extracts and panthenol that reduce redness caused by irritations and inflammations and protect the skin barrier. Also suitable for very dry conditions.




Hydra Clarifying Serum Moisturising serum for acne-prone and oily skin.

Action: A serum that combines the moisturizing effect of hyaluronic acid with the carnation extract to regulate oiliness. The LMW hyaluronic acid it contains moisturises and balances skin oiliness. Red Clover Extract assists regulating the skin’s oiliness and reduces the size of its dilated pores. It moisturises, tones and balances the oiliness.


Brightening Serum offering brightness and glow suitable for skin with pigmentation problems and spots.

Action: Contains Asyntra, Gallic acid, Phytic acid, Vitamin C, Rumex and licorice, ingredients that provide a uniform skin tone. The synergistic effect of the ingredients aims both at reducing pigmentation damage enhancing the antioxidant activity that strengthens the defence mechanism of cells from inflammatory conditions causing pigmented spots. It reduces blotches, spots and discolorations and the skin regains a uniform skin tone and radiance.


Serums will require the application of moisturiser to seal in the product and to nourish the surface layers of the skin.
