Serum is one of the greatest allies for all skin types, but it is often overlooked in the beauty routines of American women. As well as responding to the specific needs of the skin, the right facial serum works in total synergy with other beauty must-haves. Read on to learn why you should add serum to your skincare routine and how to choose the best for your skin type.
WHAT IS A SERUM?
Just like moisturizer or eye cream, which are both skincare essentials, a serum is a beauty tool that shouldn’t be neglected in your routine. As well as being an intensive treatment with a higher concentration of active ingredients, serum also prepares the skin to receive your skincare products while amplifying their effectiveness. The benefits of combining a serum with your favorite beauty products include increased hydration, improvements in the skin texture, and an instantly visible glow-up.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SERUM FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE
To see the best results, it’s essential to choose a serum that matches your skin type and its needs. With many quality serums available, choosing the best one for you can seem complicated. Here’s how to do it.
BEST SERUM FOR DRY SKIN
The HYDRA-HYAL SERUM is perfect to satisfy the needs of the most demanding dry and sensitive skins. This gel-textured facial serum contains five different types of hyaluronic acid for an immediate glow. Perfect to moisturize while fighting off the signs of time, this serum instantly plumps the skin while providing 24-hour hydration.
BEST ANTI-AGING SERUM
One of the best and revolutionary tools to say goodbye to wrinkles and a dull complexion for good, our NCEF Complex is composed of 50 ingredients (including hyaluronic acid and essential nutrients like vitamins, amino acids, minerals, co-enzymes, and antioxidants). If you are looking for the best anti-aging serum, NCEF-INTENSIVE, which is ultra-concentrated in NCEF, is perfect for you.
Enriched with Vitamin C and Retinol for an immediate brightening result, this serum comes in a water-like gel texture and it’s perfect to complement your NCEF skincare routine or in combination with your choice of products.
BEST SERUM FOR GLOWING SKIN
Specifically designed to revive dull complexions, GLOBAL-REPAIR INTENSIVE serum offers a complete solution to repair the signs of age and give you an instant glow.
Inspired by modern aesthetic medicine techniques and enriched with 50 meso-ingredients and four cell boosters, this serum has an ultra-velvety finish and can also be used as a face mask during your nighttime routine.
BEST SERUM FOR SAGGING SKIN
Formulated based on active ingredients used in aesthetic procedures, LIFT-DESIGNER serum boasts a collagen and hyaluronic acid complex that visibly tightens features, plumps the skin, and remodels face volume. At the same time, a duo of active ingredients [arabinoxylan + encapsulated microalgae] provide an immediate yet long-lasting dual-tightening effect for smoother and visibly tightened skin.
BEST ANTI-DARK SPOT SERUM
SKIN-UNIFY INTENSIVE serum contains several active ingredients that help visibly reduce dark spots like glabridin (liquorice root extract) and hyaluronic acid. Glabridin works to inhibit the synthesis of melanin, the pigment responsible for dark spots. The hyaluronic acid is encapsulated in microspheres to plump the skin, making it smoother and more radiant.
BEST SERUM FOR OILY AND COMBINATION SKIN
A hydrating and light textured anti-wrinkle face serum that’s perfect for oily and combination skin, AGE-PURIFY INTENSIVE, is formulated with our HYALURO-YOUTH CX complex, hyaluronic acid (which helps the skin to retain moisture), and filling glycopeptide to smooth the appearance of wrinkles for a younger-looking complexion. It also contains DERMO-RESCUE-CX, a combination of micro-peeling acids and purifying agents that help to reduce the appearance of pores, shine, spots, and blackheads.
HOW TO APPLY SERUM
A serum can be applied morning and/or evening to clean skin before using a day/night cream in order to boost the effectiveness of the product applied afterwards.
You need only a few drops of serum for the active ingredients to be absorbed quickly. Then, massage outwards by exerting pressure on the face to drain and stimulate circulation. Once dry, you can apply your daily skincare as you normally would.
