When it comes to your skincare routine, two is almost always better than one. Or, at least, that’s the case when it comes to serums and moisturizers. While both products work well and achieve noticeable benefits on their own, trying a serum-moisturizer pairing might be worth a try!
At Kiehl’s our skincare formulations are meant to be used in tandem to help you achieve your skincare goals. With that in mind, here are some of our favorite dynamic skin duos:
Skin Issue: Dryness
Our Pair: Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate + Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream
Dryness can be caused due to a variety of reasons, be it seasonal skin dehydration, a damaged moisture barrier, or just having a skin type that is generally drier. Combining a hydrating serum with a moisture-retaining cream can help.
Our Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate is made with 15 percent Glycerin and Shiso Leaf Extract that plumps skin and smooths the appearance of fine lines and texture. It also significantly decreases the look of dull, tired-looking skin that can be caused by age-related dehydration. The Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream has a formula that uses Red Ginger Root and Manuka Honey to visibly renew skin for smoother texture and healthier radiance. It can also help strengthen the skin barrier and improve skin’s resilience.
Skin Issue: Dark Spots
Our Pair: Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution + Clearly Corrective Brightening & Smoothing Moisture Treatment
Minimizing the appearance of dark spots requires some powerful ingredients, like our potent Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution formula with Activated Vitamin C, White Birch, and Peony.
Our dark spot corrector works to help correct dark spots and discolorations for visible correction and clarity. As some brightening ingredients can sometimes cause sensitivity, pairing it with a skin-brightening moisturizer like our Clearly Corrective Brightening & Smoothing Moisture Treatment can provide intense hydration. Plus, it also helps correct the appearance of skin discolorations and improves skin clarity and texture.
Skin Issue: Sensitivity
Our Pair: Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate + Dermatologist's Solutions Centella Cica Cream
Those with problem skin need to be very cautious of the products they are using, or they risk causing even more irritation. If sensitivity is your major skin concern, you need to skip anything with harsh actives and opt for those that have soothing properties instead.
Our Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate was made specifically for problem skin — it has a formula containing Oregano Oil and Hemp-derived Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil to calm and re-balance the skin. Our Dermatologist's Solutions Centella Cica Cream which features Madecassoside derived from Centella Asiatica and D-Panthenol helps to strengthen the moisture barrier of compromised skin and help restore a healthy appearance.
Skin Issue: Loss Of Firmness
Our Pair: Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate + Super Multi-Corrective Cream
As your skin ages, the production of collagen and elastin (two essential structural proteins) slows down and skin becomes less firm and elastic over time. To keep skin looking firm, opt for products that visibly lift and tone the appearance of aging skin.
The Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate has a formula containing 12.5% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid and is designed to visibly firm the skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines. It also helps noticeably tighten the appearance of enlarged pores for smoother-looking skin. The Super Multi-Corrective Cream is another visibly lifting, firming, and re-texturizing product formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Jasmonic Acid, and Beech Tree Extract. When used regularly, it targets some visible signs of aging and moisturizes.
Give your skin what it needs by pairing one of our skin treatment serums with a moisturizer for a noticeable improvement on your skin’s appearance.
