How to Choose an Anti-Aging Serum for Mature Skin Concerns: Wrinkles, Dark Spots, Dullness, and Uneven Texture

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. As you age you may find that your skin concerns change as visible signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots start to appear on your skin. So, how exactly do you find the best one from Lancôme for your individual skin needs? We have a few ideas for you.

Serums to Target Anti-Aging Concerns

One of the first signs that your skin is starting to change: it isn’t as soft as it used to be, skin may look bumpier, pores look bigger, and you’re noticing your first few lines so you may be looking for the best serum for mature skin. Your anti-aging concerns may vary depending on what the visible signs of aging are on your skin – whether it be wrinkles, sagging and volume loss, dark spots and discoloration or uneven skin texture or large pores. If aging is a concern, look to use serum designed to improve the look of the signs of aging of concern to you.

Face Serum for Dull Skin

Dullness and a lack of radiance are some of the most common signs of aging. If you’re looking to find a serum to help with dullness pick a radiance boosting serum.

Face Serum for Uneven Skin Texture and Pores

Uneven skin texture and enlarged pores can have an effect on the way your skin looks and also how your makeup applies – and whilst it may be possible to blur pores with makeup it can be a challenge to find a face serum to help improve the appearance of your skin’s texture, including the look of enlarged pores.
