The most powerful step in any skin care routine: A great, clean serum soaks the skin in sheer treatment: plant extracts, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, minerals, and other potent ingredients easily penetrate the skin and go to work. “Serums are real power tools when it comes to hydration and rejuvenation. They should be part of everyone’s skin care routine, ”says Dr. Barbara Sturm, who is introducing two highly anticipated new serums at the same time. “The idea is to love and protect your skin while looking youthful.” The serum step can have benefits for almost every skin type – from a visible glow to smooth lines. In combination with skin devices, serums can now deliver even more profound results.
For a noticeable glow
This daily glow serum combines two skin care powerhouses: L-ascorbic acid (proven in research to be the purest and most skin-friendly form of the antioxidant vitamin C) and moisturizing hyaluronic acid (a hydrator naturally found in the body). . The ingredients work synergistically to lighten the appearance of the skin, improve its firmness, tone, texture and moisture, and keep it looking radiant, glowing and healthy. And there are clinics that prove this: Immediately after an application, 100 percent of women showed a dramatic improvement in skin moisture. And after four weeks of twice daily use, 90 percent of women said their skin looked and felt lighter

For overnight results
The hyaluronic serum from Dr. Barbara Sturm is a bestseller in the Goop Shop for one reason: The light formula floods the skin with moisture. The brand’s new night serum combines the two active ingredients of the OG serum – hyaluronic acid and the antioxidant Purslane – with other ingredients that are particularly good overnight when our skin is doing most of the work of healing and repairing. Milk thistle extract is excellent for soothing dry and stressed skin, while senna alata extract supports the skin’s natural recovery processes. Poria cocos extract and beta-glucan support the skin’s barrier function, and plankton extract reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This super powerful serum works well under richer creams.

For wrinkles, dryness and more
This wonderfully structured serum is full of antioxidants and plant extracts: Purslane soothes, skull cap fights free radicals and environmental aggressors, and long and short chain hyaluronic acid molecules (moisturizing compounds that we lose in our skin as we age) hydrate and plump, and the formula smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The serum sinks in beautifully and makes the skin look smoother, firmer, clearer and overall shinier.

SERUM INFUSED MASKS
The best treatment masks are soaked in pure serum – use them alone or in conjunction with the following devices.
These ultra-hydrating, soothing biocellulosic eye masks were created by top makeup artist Jillian Dempsey and are infused with a milky prebiotic serum made from hyaluronic acid and almond oil that supports the skin barrier around the delicate eye area and reduces dryness and the appearance of fine lines. Dempsey knows a thing or two about making the eyes look bright and youthful; When this area is supple and moisturized, your whole face will look better immediately.

They make the skin look fresh and radiant (they also work on sensitive skin). When you’re done, remove the mask and massage the remaining serum onto your skin.

How to Charge a Serum
Sculpture and elevator
Plated in 24-karat gold, this sleek roller uses subtle vibrations to make the face appear more sculptural. It also feels great, like a firm massage. Dempsey recommends using it for ten to fifteen minutes each day for best results: the temporary effects – lasting almost a day or night – are absolutely amazing. Pat in your favorite serum (you want to create enough slip with the serum that the roller glides easily), roll up for maximum lift, knowing that the vibrations and pressure will also push the serum deeper into your skin than it does could go on his own.

Lighten and plump
When you combine this tiny nanocurrent device with serum, charge it up, says Los Angeles-based ZIIP inventor and legendary electroesthetist Melanie Simon. While the ZIIP comes with its own botanically infused ladder gel, Simon recommends applying serum beforehand. “Look for one with hyaluronic acid,” she says. Then you’re ready for ZIIP: choose from a menu of nine different electrical treatments, each targeting a specific skin problem such as sagging, dullness, or breakouts. You can do it day and night, weekly or monthly – the results are incredible.

Can I apply a serum?
Yes – layering is a great way to enhance a serum and lock in moisture. The question is in what order? “The general guideline is to start with the thinnest layer and build up to the thickest,” says New York dermatologist Whitney Tan. “It’s less about the exact products you use and more about their textures.” For example, we go back and forth with cream before oil – sometimes we change the order without any negative effects.
Start with serum.
