As you age, your skin changes, so your routine probably will need some updating, too. While you may have had oily, breakout-prone skin in your younger years, these days, you may notice that your complexion is on the drier side—and dare we say it, you might even have a few wrinkles popping up on your face (the horror!). A good skin care regimen—including a gentle cleanser, serum, anti-aging moisturizer, and SPF—can do a world of good in terms of keeping your skin healthy-looking and youthful. Serum in particular is useful for targeting specific skin issues. Here’s how to pick the right serum and moisturizer for your needs. Glowing skin, coming right up!
If you’ve never used a serum before, it’s definitely something worth adding to your daily routine. Serums are often highly concentrated and often consist of nutrients, vitamins, and other ingredients that can benefit your complexion. Generally, serums are applied after an alcohol-free toner and before moisturizer. Serums can target a number of different concerns, including dull skin, dark spots, and wrinkles, so really, there’s something available for everyone.
It’s important to take your skin type into account when you pick a moisturizer. When you apply it matters too: You should slather on your moisturizer after washing your face, but when your skin is still wet—this can help lock in the hydration.
If you have oily skin…opt for a hydrating gel cream, which can help provide you with lasting hydration sans any oily residue.
If you have sensitive skin…choose a moisturizer that’s fragrance-free or specifically designed for sensitive skin.
If you have dry skin…pick an uber-hydrating face lotion or rich cream. Formulas with ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid can help your skin store and retain moisture.
If you have combination skin…consider mixing and matching. Apply a lightweight moisturizer to your oilier areas—like your T-Zone—and apply a thicker cream to your dry areas on your face, like your cheeks.
If you have mature skin…anti-aging creams are the name of the game. Look for one that addresses some of your most pressing concerns, such as skin that appears to be loose and sagging, a loss of volume, and fine lines.
If you have normal skin…you’ve got it made in the shade! You can use a moisturizer that’s been formulated for all skin types.
As far as ingredients go, vitamin C is really a gold-standard in skin care. Vitamin C can help neutralize free radicals and reduce damage caused to skin by the environment. What are free radicals, you ask? They are unstable molecules triggered by pollution, smoke, and other environmental factors. When free radicals are exposed to your skin, they can begin to break down collagen. This can lead to your complexion showing more visible signs of aging, like wrinkles, fine lines, and dryness. In addition to SPF, topical antioxidants (like vitamin C) can help provide skin a defense against this.
Ready to add some vitamin C to your life? Reach for L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Intensive Skin Revitalizer Serum + Moisturizer. The product has a dual chamber system with a potent serum in one pump and a lightweight moisturizer in the other. The serum is formulated with PRO-XYLANE—an anti-aging ingredient derived from Birchwood extract—to help firm the appearance of aging skin. Meanwhile, the moisturizer contains vitamin C. To apply, mix the serum and moisturizer together well and smooth it over your face and neck. The first time you use the bottle, tap the pump onto a firm surface so that both chambers dispense product evenly (and make sure you put it on morning and night!). After using the serum and moisturizer duo, your skin will appear revitalized with moisture, plus it can feel softer, smoother, and suppler. With continued use, your skill will feel noticeably firmer, look more elastic, and your fine lines and wrinkles will appear noticeably smoothed. The best part? It’s suitable for every skin type.
