Beauty Lessons: What's the Difference Between Serum and Moisturizer?

While serums can deliver moisturizer, most serums are prescribed to deliver vitamins, nutrients, or anti-oxidants into deeper layers of your skin where a regular moisturizer might not be able to reach. The molecular structure of serums is smaller than a moisturizer and therefore can easily penetrate the top layers of the skin for a more profound result. Serums are often used for exfoliation or to deliver important vitamins to our skin.

Moisturizers protect your skin from environmental damage and maintain the moisture balance within the skin. The larger molecular makeup of a moisturizer means it cannot penetrate the skin as far as a serum can, however, moisturizers are excellent for depositing moisture on the top layer of your skin and maintaining a balance of hydration.
