Skincare can be a little confusing at times, especially when you have so many products to apply. Over the past few years, serums have become hugely trending and proven to be incredibly effective. They are able to target specific skincare concerns with a powerful and deeper penetration than other products. But if you have more than one in your routine, how do you go about using and layering them? Are you suppose to use more than one serum?
Why Should You Layer Serums?
When used correctly, layering serums can really elevate your skincare routine. They are powerful skincare products that have super ingredients that can deeply penetrate the skin. When layering serums, you should layer two different ones that are suitable for your skin, target your skin concern and include different active ingredients. Layering your serums as part of your daily night time routine can help you target all your skin concerns by using the different benefits that each serum offers.
How to Layer Serums
There are a few key tips when layering serums and it all comes down to consistency. The general rule of thumb of skincare application is applying from thinnest to thickest. Serums are generally thin in consistency anyways so which one should you use first? The answer is, any! As long as you allow the serum to absorb completely before applying the next. Depending on the serum, it could take anywhere between 1-4 minutes for a serum to fully absorb into the skin.
LDV Serum Concentrate vs LDV Needle Free Serum
In the above table, we can compare the Lumiere de Vie Serum Concentrate to the Lumiere de Vie Needle Free Serum. The first one targets ageing skin and reducing the effects of oxidative stresses. The later targets texture, helping the skin look firm and taut. We can see that there are two different serums that target different skin concerns. If layered together, they can benefit the skin greatly!
