Two of the most powerful steps in any skin-care routine: Clean face serums—hydrating hyaluronic acid face serum, brightening vitamin C serum, firming niacinimide serum, and more—and nourishing skin-boosting face oils can really optimize your skin-care routine.
Face serum drenches skin in pure treatment: Botanical extracts, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, minerals, and other potent ingredients sink easily into skin and go to work. The serum step can deliver benefits—from visible glow to smoothed lines—to just about every skin type. Paired with skin devices, face serums, like antioxidant vitamin C serum or hydrating serum, can deliver even more profound results.
No matter your skin type, try facial oil for the first time and you’ll see serious benefits right away. Face oil has been used by people all over the world in various forms for millennia. Conventional moisturizers, which combine waxes with water and oils, seal moisture in the skin with the wax. But they can also seal out some of the oil and water, not to mention the treatment benefits included in the formula. With oil, it all sinks right in. And most oils are already naturally infused with ingredients like antioxidants, polyphenols, and omega fatty acids.
No matter what serum or facial oil you choose, smooth it on after washing your face; just-washed, slightly damp skin is more absorbent. A small amount goes a long way in both cases, and your skin should drink it all right up. If you need more moisture, layer hydrating face serum and facial oil with cream (it’s your personal preference whether you smooth on oil or cream first, but either goes on after serum). Face serums and facial oils work beautifully morning, evening, or both. And don’t forget clean, mineral sunscreen for a truly supercharged routine.
