OUR BEST SERUM FOR GLOWING SKIN
Heard that serum is an essential part of your skincare routine but wondering what it is and how to incorporate it? We’ve put together a quick guide to serums, covering what they do, why you should use them and which ones we recommend to give your skin the perfect boost throughout the day.
WHAT IS SERUM AND WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
In skincare, “serum” refers to a formula that is designed to sink in quickly and provide an intense dose of skin-boosting ingredients. Different products will have different formulas depending on what exactly they’re targeting, but what separates serum from other products is the strong concentration of active ingredients. This is perfect for people looking for a simple skincare routine with limited products needed.
WHEN SHOULD YOU APPLY SERUM?
If applying as part of your regular skincare routine, your serum should typically come after your cleanser but before your moisturiser to get maximum benefits. Depending on the purpose and ingredients of the serum, it can be applied either at night or during the day.
You can generally apply serum every day – but make sure you listen to your skin if it needs a break and check the ingredients against other products you’re using to ensure they’re compatible and that you’re not getting a double dose of particularly intense ingredients.
NIGHT REBOOT SERUM FOR OVERNIGHT REJUVENATION
If you’re looking for a night-time serum that will soften, hydrate and illuminate your skin, we recommend our Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum. This bi-phase formulation combines exfoliating glycolic acid with Moonlight Cactus flower extract. This rare flower only blooms for 6 hours each year and has been grown and harvested in our own Ourika Gardens in Morocco, capturing its essence through a cold and slow extraction process designed for YSL Beauty. The resulting formula targets signs of fatigue and dullness, promoting regeneration so you can wake up radiant. When using exfoliating serums such as this, we advise the routine use of a protective SPF the following day and recommend our lightweight Pure Shots Airthin UV Defender SPF 50+.
ILLUMINATING SERUM FOR GLOWING SKIN
The morning after you apply your Night Reboot Serum, give your skin an extra boost with our complementary daytime serum: the Pure Shots Light Up Serum. This is one of our best glow serums to incorporate into your everyday routine thanks to its quick absorption and fresh feel. This lightweight, milky serum has been made with a specific blend of micro-pearls and Vitamin C to leave skin with instant radiance, feeling softer and more comfortable from the first use.
