Perhaps it’s the effects of soaking up so much sun over the summer (or the fact that I’m officially in my upper-20’s), but you may have noticed that I’ve been talking a lot about skincare here on the blog lately. Noticing those fine lines on my skin clearly has me implementing some new things into my beauty routine for the better! That’s why I’m so excited to team up with Clarins to introduce you to an anti-aging product that’s pure magic for women of all ages and skin types, and to answer the question so many of us have…what is face serum and how does it fit into a daily beauty routine?

So to explain why Clarins Double Serum is a beauty product you definitely should splurge on, I’ll start by answering the questions I had before implementing it into my daily skincare routine…
How Does Serum Fit Into A Daily Skincare Routine?
Just in case you were asking yourself that, I’ve always wondered myself and only recently found out, thanks to this product. I’ve actually had serums in my vanity cabinet for years, but have never known what to do with them.But when I heard about the amazing benefits Clarin’s new Double Serum, I had to find out. So while a serum does moisturize, it doesn’t replace your moisturizer. A serum can be applied both day and night but should should be applied after you wash your face and before you put on your daily moisturizer and eye cream. Why? Well that leads to the next question I had…
What exactly is a serum?
Serum is a lightweight, clear liquid formula made with the ability to apply powerful ingredients directly into your skin, not just on the surface, as most moisturizers do. Serum’s unique formula allows it to penetrate much deeper into the skin than a traditional moisturizer can, making it a much more powerful anti-aging tool. For example, Clarins new Double Serum contains powerful active ingredients such a turmeric that are proven to effectively target lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone and boost radiance. You can actually see and feel the results in just a week!
Does Serum Replace Your Moisturizer?
In short, no. Serum shouldn’t replace your moisturizer, it’s just a product you should add to your daily skincare routine, especially after your 25 and your skin starts to show early signs of aging. Think of serum as the stuff that takes moisturizing beneath your skin, really fighting those fine lines from within, while a traditional moisturizer goes above the skin, providing an extra layer of protection and moisturization (and remember your day time moisturizer should always include SPF!)
Why Should I Splurge on Clarins Double Serum?
As mentioned above, serum is the stuff that really goes beneath your skin to fight deep lines, so if you’re going to splurge on one anti-aging product, face serum is the way to go. With more than 20 potent plant extracts, including Tumeric, AKA an anti-aging powerhouse, Clarins Double Serum works wonders for your skin. Since I started using it just two weeks ago, I can already see the fine lines in my forehead and my smile lines have reduced, while my skin overall has a softer feel and more glowy look. It’s definitely a product I will forever keep in my daily beauty routine.
