the best anti-ageing face serums
While cleansing, toning and moisturising are the holy grail of skin care, if you want naturally healthy and luminous skin, you’ll need to up your game. Adding a face serum to your routine can have multiple benefits and address your skin concerns at their root.
What Is a Face Serum?
Essentially, a face serum is a lightweight topical skin product that contains active ingredients and penetrates deeper into your skin layer. These ingredients address specific skin concerns including dark spots, dullness, fine lines and wrinkles, hyper sensitivity and acne. Serums contain a high concentration of these active ingredients and hence give you better results, quicker. A face serum is best used after cleansing and toning, and before moisturising.
How to Choose the Right Serum?
Each face serum comes with a different cocktail of ingredients to help improve your skin health. It’s important to understand your skin type, to identify your skin concerns and accordingly choose ingredients that are suitable.
Face Serum for Ageing or Pigmented Skin
Sorry to break it to you, but your skin starts showing signs of ageing as early as your mid-20s. A Vitamin C serum addresses multiple skin-ageing concerns, such as dullness, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation, by helping your skin build collagen. Plus using or consuming Vitamin C regularly gives your skin a natural glow that would put many a highlighter to shame.
Dermalogica has a range of products that can slow down the process of skin ageing, leaving you with even-toned, healthy, glowing skin:

Advanced bio-technology and an ultra-stable Vitamin C complex work together to enhance the Vitamin’s C’s function in fighting the key causes of signs of skin ageing, even before it starts to happen. An optimised delivery system combined with a peptide and AHA renews for brighter, firmer, more radiant skin.
C-12 Pure Bright Serum: This potent skin brightening serum helps balance hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone.
