There is no shortage of options when it comes to choosing a face serum. Still, trial and error isn’t exactly the best or most cost-effective way to find the right face product for you. Incorporating a facial serum into your daily face care routine is an investment in your skin, and you want to make sure you are using the right one for your skin concerns. So, how exactly do you find the best one for your individual skin needs? We have a few ideas for you.
Read on for our face serum recommendations for every skin concern, from sensitivity to spots.
Lancôme’s Best Face Serum for Every Skin Type
There is one facial serum in the Lancôme lineup that is recommended for every single age and skin type: Advanced Génifique . Why? This hydrating serum adds luminosity, radiance, and glow to your skin in as little as seven days. We recommend starting to use it when skin begins looking a little too tired a little too often, or when you notice your skin does not glow the way it used to. Bonus: Advanced Génifique serum for face also pairs nicely with our other skin serums.
Lancôme’s Best Face Serum for Sensitive Skin
How do you know if you have sensitive skin? If your face is feeling tight, hot, and dry, there’s a good chance you do. Maybe it started because you were extra-tired or you just got back from a trip across the globe. Or maybe you’ve been sick, living in a polluted city, or working 60 hours a week. Whatever the reason behind your sensitivity, the face serum Advanced Génifique Sensitive for sensitive skin was designed to take care of the bad skin days we all have from time to time.
The bottle has two parts: a base that’s enriched with fractions and an ultra-active ampoule containing two antioxidants, vitamin E and ferulic acid, to help reinforce and protect your sensitive skin. Activate the skin serum by mixing them together before your first use (keeping them separate means your face serum will stay as fresh as a cold-pressed juice), and then use it for a month at night to leave sensitive skin in the past.
Lancôme’s Best Face Serum for Skin Texture and Lines
One of the first signs that your skin is starting to change: it isn’t as soft as it used to be, pores look bigger, and you’re noticing your first few lines. The anti-wrinkle serum Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector has a velvety texture that makes skin feel smoother, while at the same time smoothing your skin’s surface and making pores look tiny.
Lancôme’s Best Anti-Wrinkle Face Serum for All Signs of Aging
If loss of radiance, lines, lack of firmness, and dehydration are on your mind, we recommend one of our most luxurious, hydrating face serums: the Absolue L’Extrait Serum. Being enriched with rose extract from the Lancôme rose, it helps regenerate your skin, so it looks and feels more youthful over time. Give your face a mini massage after applying this anti-aging serum with its elegant gold petal tool, and feel all of your stress slip away.
Lancôme’s Best Skin Serum for Sagging and Dark Spots
Our Rénergie face care range is known for firming skin, but the Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Moisturizer is a true multitasker. Not only does it treat the fact that your jawline is looking a lot more slack, but it also tackles hyperpigmentation from all of those years you skipped reapplying sunscreen at the beach. This face care product makes skin look more even, glowing and radiant. Bonus points: It SPF 30—the ultimate anti-ager—to prevent further UV damage to skin.
Lancôme’s Best Eye Serum
It’s no secret that people are busier and more sleep-deprived than ever, and tired-looking eyes can be a distraction. Think of the eye serum Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl as the eye-perfect version of the face serum Advanced Génifique. It contains those prebiotic fractions that the classic skin serum is known for, plus ingredients like caffeine and algae extract which reduce puffiness and dark circles.
We recommend using the applicator pearl to massage the skin care product in order to boost your results. For de-puffing bags, use the tip to make small circular motions from inner corners of your eyes out; to smooth lines, use the pearl to make zigzag motions against crow’s feet (like you would an eraser); finally, to open eyes, use the pearl to make vertical motions on above your crease from the inner brow out.
