I like to change things up depend on my mood when it comes to my skin care, especially the serum part. I like to have multiple bottles with different purpose so I can target my skin problem depending on the day. Here are the 3 I’m currently loving for different purposes!
First the Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb is great for when you’re having a good skin day but wants a little oomph. I usually use this in the morning as it is pretty light weight and refreshing, the formula is just enough to keep my skin dewy and hydrated without making it oily. The Estee Lauder Perfectionist Wrinkle Lifting Firming Serum gives my face a really smooth texture, it also helps me absorbs my moisturizer better as mentioned here. I use this when I feel my skin needs some extra attention or after a very stressful day, I usually use it at night so I can sleep on it and let the wrinkle lifting do its work without moving too much face muscles. The Origins Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum is the bottle I reach for when I feel like my skin needs a little extra attention especially on the color correcting front. I find it extremely effective on helping to even out my skin tone and brightening it up, there were noticeable improvements after a few days of use when my skin was recovering from UV damage.
They each have a different purpose for me and targets different problems. Of course there are days when I just feel like using one over the other for no reason, but I just follow my guts because I’m sure subconsciously my brain knows what skin is craving even when I’m not thinking about it.
What’s your favorite serum(s) to use?
