How to Pick the Right Serum for Your Skin Concerns How to Pick the Right Serum for Your Skin Concerns How to Pick the Right Serum for Your Skin Concerns

By now, you’ve got the skin care basics down pat. You use a gentle cleanser such as micellar water when you wake up and before you go to bed (you’d never, ever fall asleep in your makeup!), you apply your moisturizer to damp skin because you know that that can help lock in hydration, and you always slather on a broad-spectrum SPF of 15 or higher before you leave the house to help protect your skin against sun damage. But could you be missing out on a crucial skin care step?

If you’re looking to upgrade your skin care regimen and address specific complexion issues, it might be time to add a serum to your morning and evening beauty routines. Not sure where to start? Here, find out what serum is, how to pick the right one for your skin type, and get product recommendations from L'Oréal Paris.

What Is Serum—and How Do You Apply It?

We have to admit: Serums are pretty cool. Curious as to what they are exactly? Typically, serums are formulas that are highly concentrated. They can address specific skin issues such as wrinkles or dark spots and they can also help to improve the overall appearance of your skin. As far as application goes, you’d want to put on your serum after cleansing but before moisturizing. Depending on your skin’s needs and the serum you choose, you may sometimes even be able to use your serum in place of your regular moisturizer. Pretty neat, right?

How to Pick the Right Serum for Your Skin Type and Concerns

Everyone has a different skin type and different concerns that they’d like to address. So, when it comes to picking out a serum, look for one that’s targeted to your specific needs, whether that’s minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, hydrating dry skin, or something else.
