In your daily routine one includes various steps to improve their skin care concerns. These steps can range from cleansers to toners and various moisturisers. The question majority of clients ask is, whether it is necessary to include a serum into their daily routine and can you apply more than one serum to improve a combination of concerns.

The DermaFix Serums get improved product penetration due to the key ingredients being liposome encapsulated, providing the skin with intensive corrective results.

In addition to the key ingredients of the DermaFix Serums being liposome encapsulated, The DermaFix Serums key ingredients have a small molecular structure ensuring that the various actives within the products get even further penetration into the skin. Keep in mind that the DermaFix serums should be applied to clean dry skin before the application of a moisturiser to prevent any further barriers on the skin inhibiting the DermaFix Serums from getting the best product penetration possible.

Another option is both serums can be combined in the same application by mixing them together in the palm of your hand before working into the skin. When selecting more than one DermaFix serum you ensure that not just your main skin care concern is being improved but instead various skin care concerns are benefiting from the active ingredients within the DermaFix serums.
