Ask Belle: Beginner Serums
Jul 9, 2014
I know you try a lot of beauty products, and I have a question about serums. Can you suggest a “starter serum” for someone who has never used that type of product before?
Love the blog. Thanks for everything. Cayley
Choosing a serum depends completely on your skin’s individual needs. Serums penetrate deeper than a surface cream or gel to treat a specific condition. They’re also lighter and don’t overwhelm the skin like a heavy cream can. PopSugar Beauty has more info on serums, but here are some of my favorites.
Wrinkles. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair is the one I go back to time and again. Looking for something under-$25? A friend just started using Physician’s Formula Laser-Resurfacing Serum, and she loves it. They also make a dark spot-correcting serum.
Obviously, I don’t use these all at the same time. The Is Clinical is my every day serum for face, and I smear the Estee Lauder wrinkle serum on my forehead. And the Truth Serum Oil is currently being used on my eye area.
