Skin serums are an essential part of any anti-aging skincare routine. To get the most out of your serum, it should be applied twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening. Start by cleansing and toning your skin, then apply the serum of your choice and follow with a moisturizer. Most anti-aging serums contain antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, which help protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays that cause discoloration and age spots.
Avoid sodium lauryl sulfate, as it can be too harsh for your skin. Active ingredients are more useful in later steps, such as when applying the serum. For maximum benefits, look for a formula rich in antioxidants such as vitamins C and E that fight the rays that damage skin cells. You can even solve hyperpigmentation problems with the right serum.
L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% pure glycolic acid serum is formulated with 10 percent pure glycolic acid to help clear dull skin, discoloration and dark spots. With daily use after two weeks, dark spots are visibly improved and within four weeks, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced. If you notice wrinkles and dryness, try L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives serum 1.5% pure hyaluronic acid. Formulated with a high concentration of HA, this serum absorbs quickly to help reveal instantly replenished skin.
After just two weeks, you can expect fine lines and wrinkles to be visibly reduced. When using an anti-aging cream, apply it twice a day - first thing in the morning and late at night before bedtime. Cleanse your skin to remove dirt and oil on your face before applying the cream. Apply toner if you use one, then apply the anti-aging serum and finish with a moisturizer to help the serum penetrate the skin.
The best anti-aging ingredients to look out for are vitamin A derivatives known as retinoids (retinol, tretinoin, and tazarotene) and vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate). Before applying an anti-aging cream or highlighter, apply L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Midnight Anti-Aging Serum to cleanse the skin both morning and evening. Anti-aging serums are not only effective for treating existing complexion problems but also for preventive measures. Companies that make anti-aging serums say they help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots and crow's feet. With daily use of an anti-aging serum containing active ingredients such as retinoids or vitamin C derivatives, you can expect to see visible results within two weeks.
