Should You Switch To A Serum?

Are you worried about aging (or seeing its signs) and looking for the best way to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone? Serums are a miracle product when it comes to anti-aging. They're so effective that French brand Absolution centered its entire bespoke skin care line around serums. You customize your own perfect skin treatment by mixing a few drops of the serum of your choice with a cream. “Not many women believe this, but serum is a necessary part of any skin care regimen," says Beverly Hills-based dermatologist and L'Oréal ambassador Dr. Peter Kopelson. "Because the molecules in serums are very small, they actually have the ability to penetrate skin more deeply than a lotion or cream.” And they're not just for older women. Many dermatologists suggest starting to use an anti-aging serum in your early twenties for the best wrinkle and fine line prevention.

1 L'Oréal Youth Code Serum

This new serum activates your repair gene to speed up your skin's recovery process so it acts—and looks—younger. Super-ingredient adenosine (a natural molecule that already exists in your skin's DNA—the serum gives it an extra boost) treats wrinkles by increasing collagen production. When applying an anti-aging serum, be sure to tap it gently onto the delicate skin around your eyes—this is where the signs of aging appear first.

2 Absolution La Solution + Anti-Aging Booster

Packed full of vitamin C (20 times more than what is found in an orange!), vitamin A, and vitamin B12, this serum is a concoction of certified organic vitamins and ingredients such as maca (known for its toning, revitalizing, and anti-stress properties). The intense combination of natural essential oils and vitamins contains anti-stress and revitalizing properties to help your skin retain its elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

3 Skinceuticals Blemish + Age Defense

Occasionally, you can have the worst of two worlds: signs of aging and acne. Alpha and beta hydroxy acids work to prevent the formation of acne in this two-in-one serum by breaking down the bacteria and trapped oils that cause pimples. Glycolic and citric acids work to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness. The serum, won't dry out your skin like other acne treatments, also improves skin’s texture and pigmentation.
