If you ask, I will answer.
Today in a new series of Q&A, serums are the talk.
I have been asked recently which serums I prefer and why.
As I age my skin is feeling like it needs not only a rich moisturising but also a product to retain the moisture within; serum does this for me. Since I started using serum in my morning and evening skincare routine I have noticed a great deal of difference.
Serum doesn’t banish the wrinkles and it’s probably too late for that but it does make the skin feel soft to the touch and probably help in making them any worse. I hate the feeling of tight skin and wearing an extra layer eliminates this problem.
There are three serums I gravitate between.
I like to mix my skincare products up and not stay with the same product for too long. The skin can become accustomed to the same product over and over. Like us, skin can become bored without a change in routine.
I apply serum after my cleansing and toning routine and before my moisturising cream both morning and night. If a long flight is involved, I pump it on as much as I can and cover with a rich night cream. This does make all the difference to how I feel when I arrive at my destination.
I like the three for different reasons.
Obviously the first is price point and while the Valmont is sensational, the other two are also extremely good. Now I am favouring the Filorga interspersed with the Valmont. Towards the end of the year I will switch back to the Clarins. The Valmont DNA is always in my bathroom cupboard alongside one of the other two.
For me, most important is to use it and make sure to apply the serum on a regular basis. It is so easy to shorten routines with excuses of “tiredness” or “tomorrow is soon enough”. There is no time like the present and looking after us should be a priority.
At least that’s my mantra for today.
If you have a question, don’t hesitate to ask. xv
