Whenever I hear about ampoules, I will think of bridal makeup, just like how I always think that that is the only time that we will ever need one. However, in recent years, ampoules have made their way into our everyday skincare regime, and they are no longer a mysterious glass tube that sits in the makeup artist's makeup case.

What are ampoules?
For the uninitiated, ampoules are high potency boosters for our skin. Think of them as more intense and more potent forms of serums with a higher concentration of active ingredients. As such, ampoules can "heal" our skin in a shorter time, giving our skin the supercharge it needs. Most ampoules target skin hydration issues, but there are also different types of ampoules to cater for different skin needs.
Are ampoules really necessary?
If you spent the night at the club and you are looking terrible for a date out the next morning, I would say that an ampoule can totally be a life-saver to help you look more radiant. Besides that, if you have specific skin concerns like pigmentation or fine lines, it is definitely ideal to add an ampoule or two into your everyday skincare regime.
How do ampoules fit into my skincare regime?
Not sure which step of your skincare regime should the ampoule come in? Remember this order: toner, ampoule, serum, moisturiser. However, if you feel that that is too much for your skin, you can safely skip the serum.
What are the different types of ampoules that I can try?
We did the footwork for you and suss out these 3 different treatment ampoules from Dr. AntiQue that can help to address our different skin concerns.
