Dewy Skin Duos: Pairing Moisturizers with SPF + Serums

As summer arrives, it ushers in longer days, abundant sunshine, and countless opportunities for your skin to bask in the warmth. However, with all this outdoor enjoyment, it's essential to shield your skin from UV damage while maintaining its hydration and radiance. The key? Pairing targeted serums and daily moisturizers with SPF.

For the ultimate protection against aging UV rays and enhanced skincare benefits, we paired our targeted serums with their perfect match from DAILY PREVENTION™: multi-functional suncare that features XOSM™ Technology for an added line of defense against premature skin aging.

Let's unpack how to achieve dewy summer skin with IMAGE’s most sought after "power duos," targeted serums and their advanced SPF counterparts.

Why Pair Serums with Sunscreens?

Combining serums and sunscreens isn't just a trend; it's a powerful skincare strategy. Serums offer concentrated benefits, addressing specific skin concerns like hydration, brightening, or anti-aging. When paired with daily moisturizers with SPF, you get the best of both worlds: targeted treatment and essential sun protection.

Tips for Using Serums and Sunscreens

  1. Layering Order: Always apply serums first after cleansing and toning. Follow up with your daily moisturizer with SPF. Learn more about how to layer your skincare properly.
  2. Quantity Matters: Use a pea-sized amount of serum and a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen to ensure full coverage.
  3. Reapplication: Sunscreens should be reapplied every two hours, especially if you're spending time outdoors. Products like the DAILY PREVENTION protect and refresh mist SPF 40 make reapplication a breeze.




Q: Can I mix my serum and sunscreen together?

A: It's best to layer them separately to ensure each product can perform optimally.


Q: How soon should I expect to see results from using these pairs?

A: While some benefits like hydration and glow can be immediate, it typically takes a few weeks to see significant improvements in skin tone and texture.


Q: Are these products suitable for sensitive skin?

A: IMAGE pros recommend the BIOME+ dew bright serum and DAILY PREVENTION advanced smartblend mineral moisturizer SPF 75. The serum works to protect the skin's delicate microbiome, while the sunscreen offers maximum UV protection while reducing redness.
