What is an anti-wrinkle serum?
An anti-wrinkle serum is a concentrated formula specifically designed with active ingredients that help target fine lines and wrinkles. The range of anti-wrinkle serums by Lancôme Australia contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, vitamin c and other potent natural ingredients that help retain moisture and plump the skin. When used daily, these serums can reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face and reveal healthier, smoother and younger-looking skin.
The best anti wrinkle serum is one that is targeted. So if you’re looking for a product specifically to address fine lines and wrinkles, it’s important to look for the right active ingredients.
Anti-wrinkle serum ingredients
The best anti-wrinkle face serums should generally contain at least one of the following active ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid:
This ingredient is a humectant that hydrates skin to plump fine lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, for smoother, more even-looking skin.
Vitamin Cg + Niacinamide: A combination of these two highly potent ingredients assists in smoothing the skin and visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, while also helping brighten skin tone.
Patented Pro-Xylane: This potent ingredient, unique to Lancôme Australia serums such as Absolue The Serum, visibly diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles for more youthful looking skin.
When should I start using an anti-wrinkle serum?
Signs of aging start to occur at different ages for different people. So, a good time to start using an anti-wrinkle serum is when you start to notice small wrinkles forming on your face. Alternatively, you can get a head start and start using an anti-wrinkle serum as a preventative method as early as your mid to late twenties.
How to use anti-wrinkle serum
Step 1: Thoroughly cleanse your face using a nurturing cleanser like Absolue Oil-In-Gel Face Cleanser
Step 2: Dry your skin well and apply any toners or essences
Step 3: Next, apply your anti-wrinkle night serum or day serum, such as the Rénergie H.C.F. Triple Serum by dispensing two pumps into the hands and rubbing it between your fingers before gently applying to the face using upwards and outwards motions.
Step 4: Apply an anti-wrinkle eye serum, like the Absolue Eye Serum to the delicate area around the eyes to soften wrinkles around the eyes
Step 5: Complete your skin care routine with an anti wrinkle face cream
Step 6: Apply sunscreen during the daytime to prevent further development of wrinkles and sun damage.
