Serum Activating Pads : Everything You Need To Know For Skin Care
What is serum activating pads?
Serum activating pads are cotton pads that are pre-soaked in serum. Just like toner pads, serum activating pads come with a textured side & a smooth side. People usually use serum activating pads for mild exfoliation (with the textured side) and for quick hydration (with the smooth side).
The next question people would ask - can serum activating pads replace toner? The answer is YES, we could use serum activating pads as toner. Serum activating pads are developed by the concept of combination between toner and serum.
Why serum activating pads?
Why are we using serum activating pads instead of toner and serum? What are the benefits of using serum activating pads?
1. Increase skin penetration & absorption.
Prepping your skin properly is significant to make sure it’s able to receive the most from all the skincare products you are using. Applying serum activating pads help to get your skin ready for the rest of your skincare routine. You could also simplify your skincare routine by using serum activating pads and this could be time saving at the same time. When one is layering too many products in his/her skincare steps, our skin might not absorb everything we applied.
Using serum activating pads will always be more hygienic than applying skincare products by our bare hands. Our bare hands contain dust, bacteria, sweat and many other microorganisms. Therefore, using serum activating pads is the ideal way to avoid all these dirts to clog our pores.

3. Perfect for mild exfoliation.
Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells by breaking the bonds that glue them together, allowing new cells to surface, and giving your daily glow an instant boost.
