Now, let's boost your skincare game by adding on a little extra. Spare some space on your vanity table for a facial serum! If you want to achieve luminous, smooth, and luxurious-looking skin, you are missing out by not adding a face serum.
What is a face serum? Is it essential in your skincare routine?
A serum is a lightweight form of moisturizer but has a higher concentration of active ingredients to treat specific skin problems. Serums are used before moisturizers.
Serums are more effective than other skincare products, containing small molecules that penetrate deep into your skin layer to nourish, hydrate, and lighten the skin. Your skin texture will improve greatly compared to only having a basic routine.
There are many types of serum that are available in the market. If you are still looking for the best serum to use, why not give it a try with our new NIHON Triple Action Serum!

- 5% Niacinamide
- L-Ascorbic Acid
- Sodium hyaluronate
- Citric Acid
1) 5% Niacinamide
Did you know that Niacinamide is famously known for the versatility to mix in almost all skincare products?
It is a water-soluble form of Vitamin B3 aids many skin problems. It works to fade acne scars by slowing down tyrosinase activity and reduce melanin production. Niacinamide can also promote keratin to increase the thickness of the outermost skin layer. With all that, it will improve skin barrier resulting in young and glowing skin.
It does not just stop there. Other benefits of Niacinamide include minimizing the pore appearance by regulating sebum production, restoring hydration by reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL) so the skin will appear hydrated and plump.
Last but not least, it helps your skin grow a ceramide or lipid barrier to keep the skin firm and healthy.
2) L-Ascorbic Acid
L-Ascorbic Acid is the purest form of Vitamin C that has potent antioxidant properties. Vitamin C can be used both during the day time and night time. For day time, Vitamin C works to prevent sun damage that is caused by UV rays. But remember to use sunscreen as Vitamin C can oxidize when exposed to sunlight. At night, it works to rejuvenate the skin, so, you will wake up with glowing skin.
Vitamin C is well known to brighten the skin, even out skin tone, and reduce fine lines. It is an amazing anti-aging ingredient as it helps to protect the skin from free radicals that can cause the skin to lose its elasticity, which leads to the formation of fine lines.
Collagen and elastin lie in the dermis layer for bounciness and retain face structure. Vitamin C helps to produce collagen and elastin in the dermis layer resulting in plumper and younger-looking skin.
The queen of skincare ingredients. Retinol is a form of vitamin A derived from retinoid. It is famously known as a multifunctioning ingredient. Why? Because it can treat many skin problems like acne, acne scars, and the sign of anti-aging.
"The best ingredient for acne-prone skin is Retinol" - Dr. Ingky, Medii Skin Studio.
Due to the powerful effect of Retinol, it speeds up the cell turnover process and gives more effective results. Effective, but is it safe? YES OF COURSE! That is why it is commonly found in skincare products. While it is effective, it is not dangerous, unlike Hydroquinone or Mercury.
Nevertheless, Retinol beginners may experience skin purging from the speedy cell turnover process. However, this purging possibility is only in 5-10% of people and can be easily overcome by using the retinol sandwich technique.
4) Sodium Hyaluronate
Sodium Hyaluronate is the more stable, sodium derivative of Hyaluronic Acid. It has a smaller molecule than Hyaluronic Acid and can penetrate deeper into your epidermis layer, so it can improve skin hydration from within. As Sodium Hyaluronate is a humectant, it works to attract moisture from the environment into the skin.
Overall, Sodium Hyaluronate moisturizes the skin by giving deep hydration. It helps dry skin to reduce dryness and flaky as well as prevent oily skin from dehydrated. By having enough hydration, the appearance of fine lines can minimize too. In addition, Sodium Hyaluronate can also soothe skin inflammation by promoting tissue repair.
5) Citric Acid
Citric Acid is mainly found in citrus food like orange, lemon, and lime. It is a form of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which is a chemical exfoliator. Citric acid is also used in skincare to adjust the pH level from being too alkaline. Thus, it maintains the skin at the optimum pH level.
As Citric Acid is a type of AHA, it helps to exfoliate the skin by breaking down the glue that holds the skin cell together.
The result? Skin will appear smoother and brighter as dead skin cell is the cause of dull skin and rough skin. Citric Acid can even prevent the pore from clogging. Therefore, reducing the formation of blackheads and whiteheads. Unlike other AHAs, citric acid even has antioxidant benefits for the skin.
