We will talk about serums specific for skin type later on, but let’s start with the do-it-all serum.

- Allow the serum to stay on your face for 15 minutes. Wash it off afterward
Serum for oily skin
Oily skin happens due to overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. Now, we have to stress that the production of sebum is a natural process.
Your skin needs oil that keeps it moisturized. But overproduction of oil can lead to clogging of pores.
That is why you need to constantly wash your face, cleanse it, and apply serums that keep oils in check.

- Store the bottle in a cool place where there is no direct contact with sunlight
- Apply after cleansing and toning your face. Apply just one drop on your chin, cheekbones, and forehead. Spread it evenly on your face
- Leave the serum for 15 minutes so the skin can soak in. Rinse off with lukewarm water
Serum for normal skin
Most skin care regimens have a simple goal of achieving normal skin. That is skin with a good balance of moisture, small pores, and an even tone.
To maintain healthy normal skin, you have to keep it away from sun exposure and apply products that nourish it from within.

DIY Serum for dry skin
Dry skin needs a lot of moisture. Unlike oily skin, your sebaceous glands are not producing enough sebum, and your skin lacks hydration.
Even if your skin is oily, you can develop dry skin. Or you might naturally have dry skin. In any case, you want moisture, otherwise, your skin will be itchy and there will be scaling.
