Everything you need to know about ampoules
What are ampoules?
Ampoules are highly concentrated active serums that come in glass vials, which are specifically designed for one-time use.
Difference between ampoules and serums
An ampoule is much more potent than a serum as it has a higher amount of active ingredient. The molecule size in ampoules is smaller than that of a serum, hence can be absorbed better into the skin.
What is the purpose of using an ampoule?
Ampoules are used for a short duration to help treat or correct skincare concerns. They should not be used to replace any toners, serums or essences.
Ampoules are mostly sold in a package of 5 or 7, where 1 vial is to be used for a single day for a consecutive of 5 or 7 days.
Benefits of ampoules
Just like facial serums, ampoules come in different formulas to target a variety of skin concerns such as repairing, hydrating, brightening, anti-aging etc.
Hence, if you do not have time to visit your local spa to give your skin a treat, ampoules are great to use to target dullness, breakouts, irritation and inflammation.
