Here at LUXit, we are constantly on the quest for perfectly luminous Cindy Crawford looking skin. Whether you’re a skincare newbie or a bonafide guru, these are the top three serum types you need in your beauty shelf to look and feel like you’ve just come back from a summer island vacation.
Vitamin C Serum
The holy grail of skincare serums, Vitamin C is an anti-aging and brightening serum praised by celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian and Olivia Wilde. The Power of vitamin C serum is unmatched. It will even out your complexion, brighten your skin, and provide a flawless base for your makeup that will leave your makeup looking glowing. Get ready for the compliments to fly in! Full of antioxidants Vitamin C serum also works to erase damage from the sun and will protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which can cause skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation.
WHAT TO KNOW?
While effective, Vitamin C serum can be unstable and is sensitive to exposure to sunlight. For best use, we recommend storing this serum in a cool environment such as your beauty closet or drawer. To give your skin a flawless day glow, we advise starting your morning routine with vitamin C serum, patting it gently into the skin, which helps push the serum deeper into the layers of the skin. Let the serum work its magic and absorb into your skin before applying moisturiser, sunscreen and the makeup of your choice.
The new hero serum in town, niacinamide is an active form of vitamin B-3 which aides in healing skin issues such as acne, eczema and sun damage. Niacinamide‘s list of miracle solutions is never-ending, also working to regulate oil production on your face, minimise the appearance of pores, heal hyperpigmentation and protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
WHAT TO KNOW?
For those of you with sensitive skin, Niacinamide will be your best friend! It works magically for all skin types, with very few side effects to be concerned about. Niacinamide can be used at night after removing makeup and cleansing properly and should be applied liberally by patting it onto the skin. What’s even better is that this splendid serum can be used in conjunction with hyaluronic acid, working its wonders on your skin as you sleep!
Hyaluronic acid has long been praised for its anti-aging effects, plumping up the skin, erasing fine lines and increasing the skin’s elasticity. Beloved by the beauty industry, Hyaluronic acid’s best feature is its ability to retain moisture throughout the day, keeping your skin glowing and bright. Hyaluronic Acid strengthens the top layer of your skin called the lipid barrier, which in turn works to lock in all moisturise in the skin. This makes it the perfect addition to your winter skincare routine, as the cold winter climate strips your skin of moisture. When used daily, you can say goodbye to dull and dry winter skin and expect a summer glow all year round.
WHAT TO KNOW?
Hyaluronic is an extremely powerful topical treatment and is often recommended to people with sensitive and acne-prone skin to help with strengthening the skin’s barrier and improving skin tone. It can also be used with other retinol, serums, and acids, such as Niacinamide. Dermatologists recommend that hyaluronic be used at night before applying moisturiser and any heavier night creams.
