However, unlike a daily toner or moisturizer, ampoules aren’t mean’t to be incorporated into your skincare routine everyday. “Due to their high concentration and active ingredients, ampoules should not be used consistently,” Josie Holmes, esthetician at SKINNEY Medspa in New York City, says.
Consequently, what does ampoules do for skin?
Like a serum, they can brighten and firm up the skin, but because ampoules are so potent, they’re fresher. “One benefit of using an ampoule is that you get to open a fresh, active, and highly-concentrated ingredient that has been precisely measured (whereas a serum bottle can sit on a shelf for months),” says Aguilar.
Likewise, people ask, what is ampoule treatment?
While there’s no universal answer as to what constitutes a skin ampoule, they’re usually described as highly-concentrated liquid treatments designed to help address a specific skin concern, like dark spots and discolorations.
Which is better serum or ampoule?
An ampoule is essentially a more potent serum that’s used on occasion, whereas a serum is a product that can be worked in twice daily. Both have the ability to do things like brighten, tighten, hydrate, protect, nourish, and repair.
Ampoules are basically a potent concentration of a select ingredient meant to achieve a specific function. An ampoule is generally more powerful than a moisturizer because it’s concentrated, but it’s much more liquidy, somewhat like an essence or a serum.
An ampoule is a supercharged serum with higher concentrations of active ingredients that you’re meant to use for a finite amount of time as a booster or when you’re having a skin crisis of some sort. Chang recommends using them before your essence or serum. Ampoules usually come in smaller bottles with droppers.
Can I use serum and ampoule together? In simple words: yes, you can. If you feel that your skin is really dehydrated, inflamed, dull and tired looking then you can use strong products as serums and ampoules together. Always apply serum first, wait until dry and then apply an ampoule.
As for how to incorporate ampoules into your routine? Since they’re your treatment step, they’ll go right where your serum would: after cleansing, before moisturizing. (And followed up with sunscreen, if you use them in your morning regimen.)
Use ampoule to replace serum
Before applying ampoule, you should double clean your face and use a toner to adjust your PH level and remove all makeup residues and dirt. Then you can take 2-3 drops of the ampoule and gently apply it on your face. Keep massaging until it is completely absorbed into your skin.
Yes! People with oily skin can use the ampoule in their skincare routine. The skincare industry has created different products for different skin types, and ampoules are not an exception to this trend. Ampoules have a fast-absorbing formula, perfect for oily skin types.
