5 Serums That’ll Help Prep Your Skin for MakeupOctober 08, 2020
Any beauty lover knows that a good skin-care routine equals better-looking makeup. One of the most important steps in any regimen is a serum. These concentrated formulas help target specific skin concerns like dullness and fine lines that can get in between you and a flawless complexion. Here, we’re rounding our favorite serums to use before applying makeup.
This multi-tasking formula is a serum, moisturizer and sunscreen in one, so you can get to your makeup faster. It contains pineapple and vitamin C to brighten and even out your complexion, and it absorbs quickly, giving you a smooth canvas to work with.
If texture or dark spots are at the top of your skin-concern list, check out this exfoliating serum from Rosen Skincare. It helps remove dead skin cells and fade scarring. Just be sure to apply a moisturizer and sunscreen after it and before your makeup.
To minimize the look of pores, this is our go-to serum. It contains glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid and micro-exfoliating lipo-hydroxy-acid to target large pores and to visibly tighten skin.
For an anti-aging serum, our pick is Génefique. The formula has been shown to improve skin radiance in one week of use and smooth and soften within four. You might not even need to wear much face makeup after a while.
When your skin is dry or dehydrated, you may notice that your foundation looks flaky or uneven. Keep your skin hydrated morning to night with a hyaluronic acid serum. This one also contains an adaptogenic herbal complex to improve skin texture.
