How To Layer Face Serums

Did you know you can layer serums? It's true!

Here's some tips straight from our beauty experts:

1. Apply the thinnest/lightest serum first because they deliver active ingredients into the skin most efficiently. We love these light but powerful serums: 

M-61 Skincare JetGlow Serum (to improve radiance)

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic (for Vitamin C and protection)

La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum (for hydrating)

2. Allow time in between for serums to absorb to avoid pilling. Our experts recommend having coffee (or tea) in the morning in between serum applications!



3. Address a specific concern like dark spots or anti-aging by layering on a potent serum that treats a specific concern with power packed ingredients and antioxidants likes Vitamin C, peptides, hyaluronic acid and more.  We love these serums that target specific concerns like dull skin, dark spots and fine lines: 

ReVive Skincare Perfectif Even Skin Tone Serum (for brightening)

Darphin Melaperfect Anti Dark Spot Treatment (for dark spot treatment)

M-61 Skincare Hydraboost Line Reducer (for fine lines and wrinkles)


4. Don't forget to seal it all in with moisturizer or better yet, a moisturizer with SPF to protect all the good your serums are doing underneath! We love these moisturizers with sun protecting SPF:

Supergoop! Everyday SPF 50

SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50
