By now, you’ve got the skin care basics down pat. You use a gentle facial 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 sunscreen before you leave the house to help protect your skin against sun damage. But could you be missing out on a crucial step of your skin care routine? If you’re looking to upgrade your skin care routine and address specific complexion issues, it might be time to add a face serum (such as a hydrating hyaluronic acid serum or dark spot corrector) to your morning and evening beauty routines. Not sure where to start? Here, find out what face serum is, how to pick the right one for your skin type, and learn about our best face serums.
We have to admit: Face serums are pretty cool. Curious as to what they are exactly? Typically, face serums are formulas that are highly concentrated. They can address specific skin issues such as fine lines and 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 face serum after cleansing but before moisturizing. Depending on your skin’s needs and the face serum you choose, you may sometimes even be able to use your face serum in place of your regular moisturizer. Pretty neat, right?
Everyone has a different skin type and different skin care concerns that they’d like to address. So, when it comes to picking out a face serum, look for one that’s targeted to your specific needs, whether that’s minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrating dry skin, or something else.
As you now know, face serums can be beneficial when used as part of your daily skin care routine. Plus, they’re one of skin care’s must-try trends of the moments! That means there’s never been a better time to add a face serum to your beauty routine. Here are our best face serums.
L'Oréal Paris Youth Code™ Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector: This face serum can help to make your skin look more luminous immediately and help diminish the look of dark spots with continued use over time. Apply the face serum to your face morning and night after cleansing but before moisturizing.
L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Concentrated Serum: This face serum can help to make skin look brighter immediately and reduce the look of wrinkles with continued use over time. Morning and night, smooth it over your face, neck, and jawline before applying your moisturizer.
L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Advanced Skin Repair Daily Serum: This face serum for mature skin can help to instantly hydrate skin and improve the look of skin tone with continued use over time. Put two to three drops in your hand and gently smooth the face serum onto your skin after cleansing until it’s absorbed. While you can apply moisturizer afterwards, you can also use this face serum a lightweight moisturizer replacement if you’d like.
L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Serum: This face serum for mature skin can help to make skin instantly feel smoother and softer, while skin can feel firmer with continued use over time. Apply this face serum morning and night to cleansed skin.
To recap, if you’re looking to target specific skin issues like wrinkles or dark spots, face serum can be a great addition to your skin care routine! Choose one that addresses your individual needs, then apply it to cleansed skin before following up with your moisturizer. Yep, it really is that simple. And remember: A regular skin care routine can help keep your skin looking and feeling its best! Seriously, what’s better than that? So, consider adding a face serum to your skin care routine today!
