3 Power-packed serums from Kiehl’s to give skin the added boost

The health of our skin is not only about how it looks but also how it feels. While we may do everything right from proper cleansing to toning and moisturising, our skin can always do with an added bonus in the form of a serum, or two, or even three. Serum is often touted to be the ‘pick-me-up’ to give skin an extra boost by strengthening cells, increasing nourishment and protecting skin barrier.

This July, Kiehl’s is putting the spotlight on three of its powerful serums that should be in your skincare arsenal.

For a serum that offers accelerated cell turnover, refined texture, improve skin tone evenness, and support softer, more radiant skin, try the new Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate. It is an alternative to chemical peels with a gentler solution in which quinoa husk extract is used for the first time in a facial skincare product. Quinoa husk is discovered to be a natural desquamation ingredient. Desquamation is the shedding of the outermost layer of skin – this process slows down as we age and hydration level tends to diminish, thus our face don’t reflect light well. The serum is formulated with fruit acids, cactus extract and phytic acid to fight that; it works well as an overnight anti-ageing treatment.


The Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate is formulated specifically for age-related dehydration—a condition that dermatologists have identified as a leading contributor to the appearance of ageing skin. Age-related dehydration is caused by an imbalance of moisture within the skin that occurs as we age, thus you’re more prone to look older sooner. To address this concern, this serum works to “flood” the deepest surface layers of dehydrated skin to restore vital moisture. It has a potent complex of plant-based glycerin—a natural “moisture magnet”, and Shiso Leaf Extract, which helps to promote deep moisture within the skin’s surface layers.


Last but not least, the bestseller Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate is designed to not only address the issues of fine lines and wrinkles, but also skin texture and radiance. It has a formulation containing a powerful and potent level of pure Vitamin C at 10.5%. Also known as L-Ascorbic Acid, this pure form of Vitamin C often appears as a water-soluble white crystalline powder, which is deemed unstable and rapidly deteriorates when exposed to oxygen and heat. Kiehl’s chemists have stabilised this form of Vitamin C by formulating it in a stabilising base of concentrated lotion, so it helps skin recover from some of the more visible effects of skin ageing. Vitamin C is highly regarded for its skin-loving benefits to help fight free radical damage, lessen fine lines and wrinkles, and speed up exfoliation for better skin-cell turnover. So this serum functions to slow down the ageing process and restore the appearance of health, youthful skin.
