The serum, the key treatment for your beauty routine

While cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens are important parts of any self-respecting skincare routine, serums offer a unique solution to meet your specific skin needs.

Unlike a lotion or a cream, serums are composed mainly of active ingredients with a very light molecular weight so that they penetrate more easily into the deeper layers of the epidermis. They also have the advantage of acting quickly, after 2 weeks of use the results can already be visible on the skin.

These superpowered facial treatments have the ability to help prevent and treat a multitude of skin problems, including:

- Wrinkles and fine lines
- The imperfections
- Skin dryness
- Dull complexion
- Loss of elasticity
- Dilated pores
- Hyperpigmentation and dark spots
- Acne scars

Moisturizer or serum?

For those who still doubt it, a serum does not replace a day cream and vice versa.

The role of your cream is to continuously moisturize your skin by forming a protective barrier between your epidermis and the external elements. Serums are highly concentrated in active ingredients and hydrate very little. It is therefore important to combine these two products together in the same routine to obtain results on your skin.

But how do you properly compose your beauty routine according to your needs? For beginners, we explain right here the differences between oils, serums or creams and how to choose the right textures and combine them better.

Which serum for my skin?

The advantage of a serum is that it provides a targeted solution, so you can change it regularly depending on your current problem.

From your thirties, we recommend applying an anti-aging serum rich in antioxidants, but nothing prevents you from twisting your routine with an anti-blemish serum if your skin is budding when you return from vacation.

In winter, if your skin is dry and your complexion gray, it will be better to opt for a "radiance" serum, while in summer, we will prefer moisturizing serums which make it possible to maximize the duration of the tan until the fall. Start by targeting your current problem before choosing the one that will integrate your routine.

Here are the most common:

For the first signs of aging: an antioxidant serum

Antioxidant serums help protect the skin from the free radicals it is exposed to on a daily basis (especially in the city). They also help prevent fine lines and other visible signs of aging, while having a regenerating action on the epidermis. Whether you have wrinkles or not, anti-oxidant serums are ideal for “resetting” the skin.

Le Cannabooster Reboot ultra-antioxidant (notably thanks to CBD), acts on the skin to regenerate, plump, firm and smooth it.

Boosting your beauty routine with two serums: what are the benefits?  

Your needs are different day and night. Some, for example, opt for a cream with a fluid and light texture in the morning to apply make-up over it, to give way to a balm in the evening, just before going to sleep. We advise you to do the same with serums - double effectiveness guaranteed!

During the day, opt for a serum containing antioxidants rich in vitamin C that will protect the skin from free radicals (caused by UV rays), pollutants and blue light. Shiny skin and pimples? Apply a mattifying serum with a light texture and anti-blemish active ingredients.

While you sleep, your cells go into repair mode, it's the perfect time to apply a regenerating or hydrating serum to maximize their effects. Our tip: after applying the serum, for a 100% regenerating night, apply a few drops of the antidote, our in & out CBD oil on your skin, or simply replace your moisturizer with a repairing balm. Smooth and luminous skin guaranteed when you wake up!

Are you back from vacation and your skin needs hydration but also a good detox? (hello back to school pimples), apply your anti-blemish serum for the day and your moisturizing serum for the night!

Application tip: serum, before or after cleansing and moisturizer?

The best time to apply your serum is after cleansing your skin and before moisturizing it. Start by washing your face and applying lotion if you use one. It is best to apply the serum while your skin is still damp afterwards so that it penetrates the epidermis more easily. Since face serums are very concentrated, one or two drops are enough. You can also add a dash of serum to your usual moisturizer for extra hydration throughout the day. Apply the serum all over the face using fingertips and light upward strokes. You can then unsheath your moisturizer or a balm (at night, for an even more regenerating action) and finalize your routine!
