Layering Isn’t Just for Necklaces — It’s for Serums Too

When you hear the word ‘layering’, what usually springs to mind? Necklace stacks, transeasonal dressing, or maybe one of those fancy, multi-level dips?

Well, we have a beauty essential to add to the list — serum layering!

Serums have been taking over the beauty world of late for good reason. They’re light, contain a potent concentration of ingredients, and they nourish your skin.

L’Oréal Paris has two top-selling serums: Revitalift 12% Pure Vitamin C Brightening Serum and Revitalift Filler 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum.

By pairing up the hero items via this easy, two-step CHA-CHA (Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid) serum layering routine, you can get twice the benefits – and it’ll barely add an extra minute to your schedule.

Why Two’s Better Than One

Some things are just better together. Like peanut butter and chocolate. Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Denim and, well, denim.

The same goes for serums. They’re generally designed to target one specific area. But we are multifaceted people with multifaceted needs. That’s why it makes sense to find a duo that can do double duty for your skin — and hone in on the areas that you want them to.

In this, L’Oréal Paris’s Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid Serums are a perfect match. The scientifically proven products are suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.

The Vitamin C Serum brightens the skin and targets premature signs of aging and the Hyaluronic Acid Serum hydrates and plumps up the volume.

The Glow-Down on Vitamin C

You’ve probably heard that vitamin C is gold for your skin, but you might not know exactly why that is.

Well, a daily dose of the vitamin is a boon for your face due to its antioxidant and anti-ageing properties. If you’ve started to notice your skin looking dull and uneven, or you’re clocking visible pores and fine lines, vitamin C serums can come to the rescue.

They can help even skin tone, brighten up your complexion, and protect your face from environmental aggressors (which can lead to fine lines).

The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 12% Pure Vitamin C Brightening Serum is formulated with 12% of the purest form of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) and is scientifically proven to deliver two times brighter skin in just four weeks*.

It also contains goodies like Vitamin E (to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation) and salicylic acid to exfoliate the skin and dead cells.

Suitable for all skin types, this brightening serum has a unique formula, which is stabilised at a higher Ph of 6 – similar to the skin’s Ph – to prevent irritation. And it’s L’Oréal Paris’s most stable Vitamin C yet, thanks to its advanced formula, packaging, and production process.

Plump It Up with Hyaluronic Acid

A little science lesson — hyaluronic acid, naturally found in the skin, is a humectant molecule, which attracts and retains water. As we get older, the natural supply of hyaluronic acid molecules in our face begins to drop. This can lead to a lack of firmness.

Herald the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Face Serum. It’s been specifically developed to intensely hydrate and plump up your skin in just one hour^.

The super-hydrating serum includes micro-epidermic hyaluronic acid, which is 50 times smaller than macro hyaluronic acid. This helps it to penetrate deeper into your skin’s surface, re-plumping lines and wrinkles from within.

Meanwhile, its macro hyaluronic acid component — at 0.5% — will turbocharge the moisture in your skin’s surface layers.

Dehydrated skin will slurp up this serum like it’s a peach-iced tea on a hot summer day.

How to Layer Up Your Serums

They say to kickstart a good habit, you need to attach it to another habit, whether that’s reading a poem with your breakfast or listening to a language-learning podcast on your commute.

And you can set in stone two awesome habits with this easy, two-step CHA-CHA serum layering routine from L’Oréal Paris.

Morning’s the optimal time to use the serums — the vitamin C for its free radical-fighting antioxidant properties, and the hyaluronic acid to give you an instantly refreshed look, re-plumping your skin in one hour^. 

The serums also work well as a primer before you apply your makeup, due to their non-greasy and ultra-hydrating textures. Although, you can use them in the evening too if you want to double the boost for your skin.

Start with the vitamin C, being an ‘active’. Gently dab two to three drops onto clean skin. Take care to allow the serum to settle in before following up with the hyaluronic acid.

Once ready, massage the HA serum into your face and neck. Then lock in your skincare and further protect your face with a hydrating, SPF moisturiser (if it’s daytime, of course).

And you’re done!

What did we say? Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Cue love notes from your skin.
