What is the difference between a moisturiser, a night cream and a serum?

A moisturiser is basically designed to keep your skin hydrated during the day-time and help protect against pollution etc.  Night creams are also moisturisers but good ones can help the skin to repair at night-time by feeding the skin and supporting the natural regeneration function that occurs at night while you sleep.  A serum is a ‘work-horse’ product and gives an extra boost to dull, tired or stressed skin. Serums can be used alone, and under day or night cream. Some people find they always need a serum, whilst others find a twice weekly application sufficient - it depends on your age and skin type. After the age of about 30, everyone should have all three in their kit!  Backed up of course by a good cleanser and toner.  Always choose products that are natural and contain no ‘nasties’.
