If you want to get the most out of your daily skincare routine (and age gracefully), we recommend using a face serum, moisturizer and of course - sunscreen. The triple threat of skincare, if you will.
This holiday season, we're offering our Daily Anti-Aging Power Serum and your choice of mineral sunscreen for face SPF 20 or SPF 45 at a value price here. But why is this skincare combination so beneficial? Let's start with the thinnest layer first:
Serum: What is a serum? Serums are lightweight moisturizers that penetrate deep into your dermis to deliver powerful active nutrients. Since they’re highly concentrated, a little goes a long way. With our Daily Anti-Aging Power Serum, we typically use one pump in the morning and at night before bed - spreading across face and neck. Applying the serum at night allows it to absorb deeply while you sleep and your skin rejuvenates. Here is an in-depth review about our serum from Truth in Aging.
Once you apply serum, allow it to absorb into your skin for a minute before applying the second layer - moisturizer.
Moisturizer: Moisturizers are meant to hydrate your epidermis (outer layer of skin) to keep it smooth and supple. They’re best as a second layer because of the thicker formulation and work to lock in the serum’s nutrients. For winter, thicker moisturizers are ideal because of how your skin is affected by the weather conditions and dry indoor heat. In summer, you can get away with a light moisturizer or serum and sunscreen for hydration. Our Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20 works perfectly as a second layer in your skincare routine and underneath makeup. However, we recommend our Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 45 for more intense sun exposure. Reviewed here by lifestyle blogger, Faith Pierce.
As with the serum, allow your moisturizer to settle into your skin before applying the final layer - sunscreen.
Sunscreen: If you’re not using a moisturizer with SPF, applying sunscreen as your third and outermost layer is necessary. Using sunscreen daily is your best defense against aging and skin cancer.
