Differences Between Moisturizer and Serum

Moisturizer vs Serum

We only have one body, so we need to take care of it properly and correctly. One of the things that we tend to overlook, and at times abuse, is our skin. What we fail to notice is that, like our body, we need to take care of it. One way to take care of our skin is to moisturize. What does that mean? Men sometimes tend to give you half an ear because they feel that this ‘thing’ is just for women, which is definitely wrong. Everyone has skin. Everyone needs to take care of their skin, women and men both.

What is a moisturizer?

For starters, examples of moisturizers would probably include Pond’s. There’s Oil of Olay. There are moisturizers from other big names of skin products too, like Avon and L’Oreal. So what is a moisturizer and what is it for? A moisturizer is made of oils, cream, plant extract and this is applied to your face and body. These have natural elements and they help keep the skin young, moisturized, hence ‘damp or humidified,’ so your skin won’t be dry. Its purpose is to keep your skin smooth and hydrated.

What is a serum?

A serum, on the other hand, is a thick, clear liquid considered as a beauty product. It is created and formulated to target a specific issue, as long as it is focusing on your skin. Some of these serums focus on the eye area, lessening wrinkles, reducing dark spots, and many others. There are, of course, many more formulas out there, so finding the right type and kind of serum for your skin is essential, and shouldn’t be something that you would be deciding on your own, especially after listening to friends take this and that. It is always important to remember that one’s face and one’s skin type would always be different from that of another.


Serums have smaller molecules, so they are easily and better absorbed by your skin. Moisturizers on the other hand, have larger molecules, so it will not easily seep in your skin.

Serums leave behind nutrients on your skin to be absorbed, while moisturizers are more on hydrating and moisturizing your skin.
Serums are targeted treatment for specific areas of your face. Moisturizers are essential for your skin, specifically, for your face.

The important bit of information in this article is that your skin needs as much care as you give to your health, to your body. If you eat healthy foods, have a good diet, and take time to exercise daily, that is well and good. Then again, the things that you need to do for your body should not stop there, but you should also consider the outer part of your body … that is, your skin. It is not just all about putting sunscreen on to protect it from harmful rays of the sun, but also about finding ways to keep your skin healthy as well. There are simply too many products out there that are advertised as being the best. You need to be a smart shopper and an even more wise consumer in terms of reading the label, all the time. Make sure you read through the list of items noted at the label. It is not all about label and names, but ensuring that you get your money’s worth is important. Some people believe that serums are more costly, and in all honesty, they are. Because the ingredients and components of serums are more potent, more effective in terms of addressing the skin issues, like that of eye wrinkles, dark spots, and many more, the effect and results remarked upon by those who use it are quite noteworthy and remarkable. This is probably because the active ingredients are vitamins and anti-oxidants. So like any face product, you should always take into consideration the type of skin that you have.
