Five Essential Serums with Serious Benefits
Serums…it’s hard to believe that little bottle of liquid gold is actually one of skincare’s biggest heroes. These products are often ultra-hydrating, rich in antioxidants, and target specific skin issues and conditions. Serums offer a higher concentration of active ingredients the skin craves and can easily absorb into the skin, and are an absolute must-have element in a proper skincare routine.
Regular use can leave the skin with a more clearer, firmer, and smoother appearance. Depending on the formula, serums can also help strengthen the skin barrier and improve overall skin health.
