Bottled magic: serums are supplements for your skin

Just like we take vitamins to boost our bodies’ performance, our skin needs supplements to help it become its strongest. That’s where serums come in.

Serum. The word itself sounds intimidating. Pleasant, but intimidating. So, many women (especially young women) fail to include serums in their skincare routines. After all, who’d put something on their face that they know little to nothing about?

I truly believe that the lack of serums in our skincare routines comes from a lack of understanding. There are so many different serums on the market; it seems impossible to know which one is right for you (or which one will give you the most bang for your buck–some serums can be pretty pricey).

But, that’s just the thing–Glossier insists you’re not just a “skin type”. Throughout the course of a month, multiple environmental and internal factors play a role in throwing our skin off-balance (some of which we have very little control over). Life happens, and we need a few different serums to help us along the way.

That’s where Glossier comes in.

Nearly a year ago, the New York-based skincare and makeup company debuted The Supers: three nutrient-rich serums for both the beauty newbie and the beauty junkie alike.

If you are new to serums (or skincare in general), don’t worry: The Supers are super simple (pun intended).

There’s Super Bounce, to restore your skin’s moisture and elasticity (like after a long flight or when you’re hungover).

Then, there’s Super Glow, for when late nights or secondhand smoke (or anything else) leaves your skin dull.

And lastly there’s Super Pure, to calm blemishes caused by stress, hormonal freak-outs or junk food binges.

Unlike other serums on the market with which many of you beauty junkies may be familiar, The Supers aren’t loaded with the various mixtures of the same oils that only provide temporary relief but do nothing for the long-term well-being of your skin. (Some of these oily serums may also be too much for sensitive skin to handle, doing more harm than good in many cases.)

Per Glossier, “over time Super Glow evens skin tone, and creates a light-reflective complexion,” while Super Bounce “plumps skin up with moisture and brings back elasticity for supple softness—the ‘bounce’ you want.”

And Super Pure not only “visibly soothes redness and helps calm blemishes,” but also “gets troubled skin in check and flushes out impurities, including excess sebum that builds up inside pores.”

Together, The Supers “refill your skin’s deficiencies, strengthening it day after day.” Because on a given day, your skin’s needs can change, and Glossier believes your product lineup should help you adapt–and I couldn’t agree more.

You can shop each Super individually, or save when you choose The Super Pack, which includes all three serums. They’ll fit perfectly into your already-established skincare routine: after cleanser, before moisturizer.
